Problem Description
We have discovered that BackupEdge is not creating its index database in /usr/lib/edge/database, although it is flagged to do so in edge.nightly.

The reason for the software not to save the data base would be the locate threshold is set to a value of 0 or lower (-1).
Either run the program /usr/lib/edge/bin/edge.resmgr for your default backup device and select the Manual Check portion of the program to set the Locate Threshold, or run edge.checkffr to do it manually.

The command line would be:

/usr/lib/edge/bin/edge.checkffr -b 64 -k 32768 -f /dev/{your tape device}
