    2. Job fails; note log file messages as described in Symptoms.


    If you are not comfortable implenting workaround, open a Case with Voyager Support for assistance.

    1. Make backup copy of /m1/voyager/xxxdb/ini/voyager.env
    2. Change PATH variable from export PATH=$VOYAGER_BIN:$PATH:. to export PATH=$VOYAGER_BIN:$VOYAGER/$DATABASE/sbin:$PATH:.
    3. Restart gdcsvr and  jobd

    Additional Information

    The PATH change may need to be re-implemented after each upgrade of Voyager.
