The DSA service is unable to start causing the agent to not function. During installation or on /var/log/messages, you may see the following entries:
ds_agent: /lib/lsb/init-functions: line 8: /etc/rc.status: No such file or directory
ds_agent: Starting ds_agent: /lib/lsb/init-functions: line 74: /sbin/start-stop-daemon: No such file or directory
Upon checking the system directory /etc/, the file rc.status is missing.
The file /etc/rc.status is a default system file on SUSE Linux. Restore /etc/rc.status by contacting OS support. YOu may also copy the file from a working SUSE Linux then reinstall the agent.
