  1. Upgraded to OES2/SP3.
  2. Ran dsbk.
  3. Backup was not created and ndsd.log file displayed this error -

Loader Failed:for dxevent,error dxevent: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory,errno 2

Removed the /usr/bin/dsbk file if it still exists.  Backups with dsbk should work correctly.

Note: It's possible that an incorrect dsbk file might be present in a different directory than /usr/bin.  To determine if that's the case, run the following command.

which dsbk
