I am unable to run the app discovery from linux servers mainly RHEL 6 & 7. It just sits idle and doesn’t discover anything. If I run Get Netstat CSV (Data On Demand) from SCOM tasks it gives below error. Please help.
Task Status Details
Get Netstat CSV (Data On Demand)
Failed to start child process ‘/tmp/scxKx3P7b’ errno=13
The output you are seeing there is from the SCOM agent itself – it’s unable to launch a process to run the task. This seems somewhat common on RHEL 6/7 servers, and can be down to a corrupt files in the agent itself.
You may need to try repairing/redeploying the agent, or check and ensure that the Unix/Linux privileged monitoring account has permissions to execute scripts under /tmp/ (that’s where the agent deploys script-based monitoring prior to executing them and cleaning them up).
