My apologies for the long delay in responding to my
earlier question.. The problem was resolved with an
upgrade version of the linux agent which I found,
after some digging, on the CA website. It appears that
the version on their CD just didn't work with RH9
kernel version 2.4.20-20 or above !
Should anyone encounter the same problem, the fix can
be found here:
I thought best to reply, just in case someone poor
sould encounters the same problem. It'll save the head
scratching I had to encounter.
Many thanks to John for his assistance.
BTW if anyone happens to know if there's an agent that
may work on FreeBSD, I'd be interested in hearing from
you. So far it seems CA support almost every *nix
flavour but BSD :((
