Issue:
Nqcapd process will not start.

The following error is present in the nqnapacapd log:

00:00:12  nqnapacapd starting...
00:00:12  nqnapcapd daemonizing start
00:00:12  nqnapacapd started: pid=29313

00:00:12  [Error] Capture device is not specified.
Environment:
CentOS 5.X, 6.X, 7.X
Cause:
The VMTP software requires an entry in the mySQL database specify which model Napatech card the machine is going to utilize.

It is possible that my mySQL database become corrupt, doesn't install properly, or the entry does not match the card that is installed on the system
Resolution:
Execute the following .php script on the system:

'/opt/NetQoS/scripts/dbCardConfig.php'

Start the Nqcapd process and verify the messages are gone from the nqnapacapd logging.
