Attempting to move the EMM database configuration files, data files and Transaction logs fails. This is required before an upgrade to move the files back to the original location prior to the upgrade.
The CLI reports the following when executing the command:
# /usr/openv/db/bin/nbdb_move -data /usr/openv/db/data -index /usr/openv/db/data -tlog /usr/openv/db/data
Move of database files failed.
There is an extra space in /usr/openv/netbackup/db/data/vxdbms.conf This can be demonstrated by running:
cat -evn /usr/openv/netbackup/db/data/vxdbms.conf
(this command will print a $ at the end of each line)
/usr/openv/netbackup/logs/nbdb/<date>.log reports the following:

Remove any extra spaces from the end of the lines in the file vxdbms.conf, and the command will execute with no problem.
