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
I used to have an issue with vada on linux. Do a search for Linux in the community forums. The 3rd result should be my original posting. Maybe something in there would help?
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).
This is probably one for support.
