Error! Invalid XSL path

Hello Sandeep,

well, to be more precisely, I installed everything in the 
server-administrator.tgz on my SERVER01. There I can do a
service omawsd start
and everything is fine. (It was running already)
Then I have a SERVER02, SERVER03... that mounts the filesystem of 
SERVER01 via NFS. Most is mounted readonly, several parts like /var, 
/root, some parts of /etc and /dev are writeable by using symbolic links.

The Problem is, that on SERVER02, SERVER03... I get the XSL Error. And 
indeed! On SERVER02 the omawsd was not running, but also when I try to 
start it, it fails.
So my assumption is, that - since it is running on SERVER01, but not 
running on SERVER02, that has the same filesystem - the error occurs due 
to the missing write access. I tried with strace, but could not figure 
out anything.

By the way: I just stopped omawsd on SERVER01. I still get information via
omreport chassis bios

So the problem is independet on the omawsd...
