open3: exec of /usr/sbin/ipset flush failed at /usr/sbin/csf line 4752.
[root@server78 ~]#

I checked if command /usr/sbin/ipset exists, but was not found. So checked which package provide this command.

[root@server78 ~]# /usr/sbin/ipset
-bash: /usr/sbin/ipset: No such file or directory
[root@server78 ~]# yum whatprovides "/usr/sbin/ipset"

Problem is fixed by installing package ipset with yum

yum install -y ipset
