I keep getting "cannot generate configuration file, configuration file already exists" whenever I try to install the connector as a service after updating it. The upgrade is being done on a Linux syste, . and the arc_xxxxx file had been removed from the init.d directory before upgrading the connector .
So, which config file is it trying to create during the install as a service process?
1) Not sure about exact file, maybe "agent.wrapper.conf", as this is available when SmartConnector is ran as service. <connector_home>/current/user/agent/agent.wrapper.conf 2) From your description it looks like you deleted file in /etc/init.d/ manually, second thing is that if you did not do it like this, this is the way to change SmartConnector to Standalone mode: a) stop SmartConnector b) start runagentsetup for SmartConnector c) uninstall SmartConnector as service via runagentsetup d) this will convert SmartConnector to standalone mode and remove service
I have met this message before, however previous line usually is "Unable to install XXXX service - The specified service .already exists". Could you check - perhaps it is the same with you. That means you already have service with same name
