ACSLS 8.5.1 error pg_ctl: command not found (Doc ID 2680303.1)

Sun StorageTek Auto Cartridge Sys Lib SW (ACSLS) - Version 8.5.1 and later
Linux x86-64
ACSLS 8.5.1 script fails with message pg_ctl not found


 ACSLS 8.5.1 installation fails during execution of the $ACS_HOME/install/ script with messages:

 Installing the ACSLS Database....
    Which file system will be used to store database backups? [/export/backup]?
    Backup directory: /export/backup :. Is this correct? (y or n): y

    Back up directory is: /export/backup
 ./ line 68: pg_ctl: command not found
 ./ line 73: pg_ctl: command not found
 ERROR: Invalid PostgreSQL version, is: , should be 10.5, exiting ...
    Error while starting the database server 2208: Error: ACSLS database installation failed.   Exiting.
 Please review the /tmp/install.log.


 ACSLS 8.5.1 uses postgreSQL 10.5 installed in the /opt/oracle/postgresql-10 directory.

 ACSLS 8.5.1 also installs SELinux modules to support SELinux enabled mode.

 The above error occurred despite the presence of the correct version of postgresql (postgreSQL 10.5), and the presence of pg_ctl in the correct directory (/opt/oracle/postgresql-10/bin).  
 Also, SELinux was enabled, and set to enforcing, and the correct ACSLS SELinux modules were installed.
