Failed to define device

As part of the Blueworx Voice Response startup procedure, several logical devices need to be defined. To define a device, the define method for that device is used. A define method creates an entry in the ODM database for the new device, so that the rest of AIX knows about the device, and so that, when the device is configured later using a configuration method, there are some parameters to retrieve and use. A define method moves the device from the undefined state to the defined state in ODM. One such define method failed. The device cannot be used until this problem is corrected. This can indicate that the define method is not being called with root access, that a data file is not installed with correct permissions, or that ODM has been locked by some other software. The I/O subsystem cannot be started.

If the problem persists, contact Blueworx Support.
