Pinned topic cwbping not found

‏2007-07-30T22:45:37Z |
I have installed 64bit iSeriesAccess and am having a communication problem. I want to use the cwbping program to help identify the problem, but when I go to the directory that it is in on my Linux box and type in cwbping, I get a message that file is not found even though a ls shows the command.

Anyone have an idea what I am doing wrong?

Thanks.

    2 possible solutions.

    1. Add /opt/ibm/iSeriesAccess/bin to your $PATH environment variable, like this:

    1. export PATH=$PATH:/opt/ibm/iSeriesAccess/bin

    You can add a line like that to your shell starting script, like .bashrc, that way $PATH will be exported is time you spawn a new shell. Other benefit is that all the commands in the ILA binary path will be available to be executed without specifying the full path.

    2. Execute the command with the full path, like this:

    1. /opt/ibm/iSeriesAccess/bin/cwbping /v SystemiHost

    This solution is not as good as the first one, but is more straight forward.

      Thanks, your second option worked. Strange that even if I cd to the /bin directory, I can't run the program.

      Best Regards.
