Symptoms

On FTP 8.0.4, when FTP engine is executed from outside the /ficdb/bin directory, the following error appears:

ERROR

 | strBatchId : OFSAA_345477_EXEC_20170930_PRCSTRT_TEST_1 | strComponentId : TP | Process ID : 345477 | User ID : OFSA | AS_OF_DATE : 09/30/2017
sh: ./ofsextsms: No such file or directory
Unable to get database details from ofsextsms, so exiting

This works fine when triggered from ficdb/bin directly.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Attempt to execute ofstp command line from any directory but $FIC_DB_HOME/bin
2. Find error
