COBOL – Runtime install fails psauto64

When installing the runtime license for Server Express 5.x, you will most likely encounter an error reporting that is in an unsupported format. This unsupported format error is caused by a failure to read the file from the nfs mounted file system. By explicitly setting the path in the psauto64 (or psauto32) script to a file reference the script will execute correctly.

Simply open the psauto64 or psauto32 script with vi and change the follwing:

From:  $COBDIR/bin/cobrun verbose
To:        $COBDIR/bin/cobrun ./ verbose

Happy installing! 🙂
