IssueThis issue is prevalent on software based installations.
The IMG RedHat based appliance has SELinux disabled by default.  If this error is thrown on an IMG RedHat based appliance, the configuration was deviated from default.
When attempting to start the IMG database or application this error is thrown: -bash: /usr/sbin/sesh: No such file or directory
service aveksa_server startdb
acm startdb
service aveksa_server start
acm start
Returns this error
-bash: /usr/sbin/sesh: No such file or directory
CauseThis error is thrown if SELinux is enabled on the RedHat host.
ResolutionCheck to see if SELinux is enabled:
Running the command sestatus will return the current state:
User-added image
To disable SELinux:
First make a backup of /etc/selinux/config:
cp /etc/selinux/config /etc/selinux/config.orig
Edit the /etc/selinux/config file and make sure that SELINUX=disabled
User-added image
After saving the change to disable SELinux the host machine has to be rebooted for the change to take effect.
