This article addresses the issue where Linux/Unix Script Monitor components under an HPUX template are broken and display the following errors, or similar, when executed under root credentials:

  • Linux script execution error. Scripting Error: Script does not contain the expected parameters or is improperly formatted. 'Process0', 'Process1', 'Process2', 'Process3', 'Process4', 'Process5', 'Process6', 'Process7', 'Process8', 'Process9' missing.
  • Linux script execution error. Script file creation file. The created file is corrupted.
  • The return code is different than expected. Testing on node '' failed with 'Unknown' status ('Unknown' might be different if script exits with a different exit code).perl /tmp/APM_xxxxxxxxxx.plCan't modify constant item in scalar assignment at /tmp/ line 2, near ");"Execution of /tmp/ aborted due to compilation errors.


SAM 6.2.4


This occurs when the tty settings of the root account on the HPUX system are configured such that some characters are interpreted as special commands. 


Run the script under different credentials other than the root account. If this is not possible, add the following line to the root account's .profile script:

stty erase "^H" kill "^U" intr "^C" eof "^D"
