TSAM error reading the TUXCONFIG file

I recently began experimenting with TSAM and had some initial troubles with the configuration. The LMS server would start successfully, but after starting the TSAM manager (default apache-tomcat server) I received the following error in my ULOG.

154127.machine!LMS.18500.8624.1: LIBTUX_CAT:607: ERROR: Cannot open section MACHINESSECT of the TUXCONFIG: -1

I found that the LMS server was attempting to read the TUXCONFIG file from an invalid location. It always truncated the path of the file to 8 characters. For example, if I stored the tuxconfig file at "C:\TSAM\tuxconfig" it would attempt to read the file "c:\TSAM\t". When this file didn't exist, it would create a file in its place (with some additional characters) and log the above error in the ULOG. This would happen ~8 times per second. After I shorted the full file name to less than 8 characters (e.g. "c:\tc") the agent connected to the manager successfully and I was able to begin using the functionality. Here are some of the file names created when the server could not find the file - "tuxcoP¾`", "tuxcoP¾_", "doоf", "dopùb", etc.

Does anyone have any ideas what would cause this type of problem? I am running Windows 7 64-bit using Tuxedo 11gR1, also 64-bit.

    Hi Jonathan,

    Windows 7 is not a supported Tuxedo server platform. The only thing supported on Windows 7 is the Tuxedo client installation. Can you try this on a supported platform such as Windows Server 2008?

    I just run Tuxedo 11gR1 ( 11gR1 ( under Windows 7 64bit machine. No any problem observed.

    My steps,
    1)     Download 32bit installers for both Tuxedo 11gR1 ( 11gR1 (;
    2)     Install Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Express Edition;
    3)     Run simpapp with TSAM;

    Windows 7 64bit machine

    If you download 64bit installer for Tuxedo 11gR1 ( 11gR1 (, you might fail to compile client/server for simpapp example at Windows 7 64bit machine.

    Therefore, we suggest you download 32bit installers for both Tuxedo 11gR1 ( 11gR1 (, and try again.

    call "C:\VS90\VC\bin\vcvars32.bat"

    set TUXDIR=C:\bea\tuxedo11gR1
    set APPDIR=C:\bea\tuxedo11gR1\samples\atmi\simpapp
    set PATH=%TUXDIR%\bin;%APPDIR%;%PATH%
    set TUXCONFIG=%APPDIR%\tuxconfig
