thanks - i have done this and got so far.... but not hit this rather odd 
error i think

[root at host 2.6.14]# /root/om/linux/supportscripts/srvadmin-services.sh start
Starting Systems Management Device Drivers:

mknod failed for dcdbas device driver.
See /var/log/dcdbas.log for output from mknod.

and...

[root at host 2.6.14]# cat /var/log/dcdbas.log
mknod: wrong number of arguments
Try `mknod --help' for more information.

mknod parameters:

any ideas as to what the issue is now as all other logs are silent

thanks
