Getting a core trying to start lengine from the terminal /etc/init.d/novel-naudit.
No modifications were made to the previously running Nsure Audit on the same box.


We took an strace while starting Nsure Audit in the following way:

strace -f -o /tmp/audit/log /etc/init.d/novell-naudit start

In the strace output file we can verify it can not find the following file /usr/lib/, When we check this file, we realized this file was a symbolic link that pointed to another missing symbolic link (

The solution in this case is to re-create the missing symbolic link file in /usr/lib/ ( using:

ln -s ../../opt/novell/lib/
