Reset the STP Daemon on the Service Processor
The Live Optics software terminates and generates an error message when required information is missing from the BTP/TTP files.

Live Optics recommends that you contact the local Customer Services person assigned to the system and request them to “reset the STP Daemon on the Service Processor” before running the collection.
