    Default "Unable to locate working expect! Please check your installation." ??

    When I do a /scripts/upcp, the first thing that comes out is:

    root@alpha [/usr/bin]# /scripts/upcp
    Unable to locate working expect! Please check your installation.


    Should I be concerned?

    Does sound odd to me, perhaps make sure you have been compromised, unless this is just an edge bug.

    What does the following command report?

    rpm -qa expect

    and also:

    rpm -Vv expect

    It's a scripting language and application that allows a third-party to run an interactive script. I'd suggest that you run:

    yum install expect
