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_", "doÐ¾f", "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.
