LIN1019-3837 : fails with updated Python v3

Updated system to python 3.6.x for another WR product requirement.  The /usr/bin/python was set as a soft link to /usr/bin/python3.6, which causes a failure for the command.  Changing the link back to point to the old python2.7 executable executes correctly.  We should add checks to ensure the correct version or execute the version specific executable.


1. Ensure /usr/python is pointing to /usr/python2

Steps to Reproduce

# soft link /usr/python to point to /usr/python3.6 o /usr/python3
 # install and run as normal
 # error occurs (see attached) !setupErr.png!
