On an NSMXpress appliance nsm_setup file is missing.
No File found error when trying to run nsm_setup
If NSMXpress Server is missing nsm_setup, there was a problem with upgrading/installing NSM. Some or all of the OS packages did not install successfully.

Please re-install NSM.  It can be run ontop of itself.

In your working directory (/tmp, /home/admin, /root, /var/cores)

Remove any apps-rpms directories, extract the installer again from the zip file:


Make sure you have the offline file in the same directory. Do not unzip.

Run the installer again:

sh Offline

Running "nsm_setup" from the command line should now work
