This article describes the issue of the xdbDataReload utility failing to run.
This utility is run as an NSM user and it can be used to perform low-level database recovery. When trying to run the xdbDatareload utility, it fails to run; with the following error message being generated:
/usr/netscreen/GuiSvr/utils/.xdbDataReload: line 28: bin/awk: No such file or directory
To resolve this isssue,  open the .xdbDataReload file, which is under /usr/netscreen/GuiSvr/utils, in a vi editor.

Modify line no. 17:
to look like:

Now save and exit this file. Now the utility should run properly. This utility takes a copy of the xdb/data directory, which is under /var/netscreen/dbbackup/recovery. Ensure that there is enough disk space, prior to running this utility.
