IssueMonit is producing the error message "Cannot find the control file" on RSA NetWitness appliances.
Resolution

If you are receiving the following error when running monit:

   monit: Cannot find the control file at ~/.monitrc, /etc/monitrc, /etc/monitrc, /usr/local/etc/monitrc or at ./monitrc

Create the following symlink to fix the issue and allow monit to function again:

    ln -s /etc/monit.conf /etc/monitrc

Apparently when monit updated from 5.2.x to 5.3.x the configuration location changed. However the build was not updated with this new configuration location.

This affects all version buildsticks that have Monit 5.3.x installed.
