FAILURE: 709 Missing < /var/opt/quest/vas/vasd/.vasd_ipc_sock >, vasd cannot handle IPC requests.
This error is caused by vasd being unable to write to the /var/opt/quest/vas/vasd/.vasd_ipc_sock file. This can be caused by:
a) directory permissions being too strict on any of the directories holding this file, due to server hardening or other configuration change:
b) max open file limit exceeded, so that the operating system (O/S) can not open a new file.
c) old vasd processess that were not shut down properly could be holding open old socket files
Check the following directory permissions:
/ should be root root 755
/var should be root root 755
/var/opt should be root root 755
/var/opt/quest should be root root 755
/var/opt/quest/vas should be root root 755
/var/opt/quest/vas/vasd should be daemon daemon 755
Check the log for messages that say "Too many open files" or "file-max limit xxxxx reached" where xxxxx is the maximum allowed open files.
Either increase the number of allowed open files (method is O/S dependant), or find what is opening too many files and stop or fix it. Pleaser refer to the operating system vendor for information on increasing the limits.
Shut down the vasd service and run "ps -ef | grep vasd". If any services are still running manually kill them and then restart the vasd service.
