    AIK: "/usr/bin/nslookup: No such file or directory"

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 22

    Problem Symptoms:
    In the AIK (Aleph Installation Kit) step 1.1 ("Download Aleph software and third party products"), the Aleph script param_bash.ini, gets the error message: "/usr/bin/nslookup: No such file or directory".

    And, in fact, there is no /usr/bin/nslookup file on the server.

    See Additional Information below for complete log.

    Cause:
    Linux bin-utils package not installed.

    Resolution:
    Install the unix bin-utils package. nslookup is part of this package.

    The necessary packages are described in Ex Libris Documentation Center > Cross-Product > Technical Documentation > System Requirements > "Operating System Requirements for Red Hat Enterprise Linux".

    The equivalent document for Sun is "Operating System Requirements for the Sun Platform".
