While installing CA Arcserve R16.5, can be resolve by changing /bin/sh linking from dash to bash.

You can check the linking of /bin/sh, with this commands:

If you get:

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 Feb  7 19:41 /bin/sh -> dash

You have this problem.
Change the linking is easy, just reconfigure dash

Select No, to Install dash as /bin/sh

Once this is changed you should be able to install the agent or start the agent fine.
