Server setup is failing while trying to create the NIM lppsource resource. The following error is returned when the setup_server script is run:
0042-175: c_instspot: an unexpected result was returned by the /usr/sbin/installp command
There is usually a spot directory, but nothing has been added to the spot (the spot directory is empty).
This problem is sometimes caused by a missing file in the lpp_source directory: the bos file.
Create this file by running bffcreate against the CD-ROM and copying the files to disk for future installation. Then ftp a file from another NIM master (if possible); otherwise, restore that file from the install media.
Running setup_server again should work.
