[gpfsug-discuss] Pmcollector fails to start

That was indeed the issue! We’ve linked /opt/IBM/zimon to another directory due to database size.  chown’ing that to scalepm.scalepm fixed it.

Now, creating a user ‘scalepm’ on the sly and not telling me – not good!

status=203/EXEC could be a permission issue.
Starting manually from command line (most likely as root) did work.
With 5.1.1, pmcollector runs as user scalepm.
The package scripts create the user and apply according access with chmod/chown.
The commands can be reviewed with rpm -ql gpfs.gss.pmcollector --scripts
Maybe user scalepm is gone or there was an issue during package install/upgrade.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Best regards / Saludos
