Hello adri,

This issues are the result of using an incompatible Linux shell (i.e not BASH, which is required by all Centova Cast's scripts).

You will need to make sure that BASH is installed on your system, and that the root user's default shell is set to /bin/bash in /etc/passwd.

Also make sure that you are logging in as root, and not as other pseudo administrative account such as "admin".

Finally, you can type "echo $BASH" to make sure that the environmental variable for BASH has been correctly set to /bin/bash.
