SFORA tools have problems after installing 5.1 SP1 :

When trying  to use

# dbed_codm_adm

you get the following:

SFORA exec_remote ERROR V-81-7700 Can not connect to the vxdbd. It might be down. Check the status and restart it if it is not up.

and the following when checking  the status of the vxdb

# vxdbdctrl status

gets /opt/VRTSdbed/common/bin/vxdbd ping FAILED



Error Message

/opt/VRTSdbed/common/bin/vxdbd ping FAILED

ERROR V-81-7700 Can not connect to the vxdbd daemon



In 5.1 SP1, vxdbd now links to the  library included in VRTSat package which isn't installed by default.


Workaround is to manually install the VRTSat package. On Linux it is recommended that both the VRTSatClient and VRTSatServer packages are installed.

VRTSat package(s) will be automatically installed  in the next full release which will address the issue.
