OS Version: Mac OSX 10.x

Application version: N/A
Sporadically, Mac OS X clients log the following error in the NetVault log:
15 Aug 2006 15:01:35 [client_name] N/A N/A Failed to spawn 'SVDL Library Manager' (/usr/netvault/bin/nvsvdlchgmgr) Error
It could also read, "Failed to spawn 'SVTL Library Manager"
SVDLs are only supported on Linux, Windows and Solaris (SPARC and Intel). They are not supported on Mac OS X. Therefore, the executable is not present, but NetVault still tries to spawn it as is considered a start-of-day executable.
On the problem clients stop the NetVault service and edit the programs.cfg file in NETVAULT_HOME/config. Find the following sections:
[SVDL Device Manager]
[SVDL Library Manager]
[SVTL Device Manager]
[SVTL Library Manager]
