    QUESTION:

    Is Control-M/Agent for UNIX and Microsoft Windows 9.0.19.100 and above supported on  Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5.x and Oracle Linux 5


    ANSWER:

    Control-M/Agent 9.0.19.100 and future release 9.0.19.200 are supported in limited configuration on RHEL 5.x and Oracle Linux 5.x
    Control-M/Agent 9.0.19.100 and above come packaged with OpenJDK do to licensing change policy with Oracle Java.
    OpenJDK does not support RHEL 5 nor Oracle Linux 5 therefore Control-M/Agent 9.0.19.100 and above are supported only with Oracle Java or Azul Java.
    OpenJDK and RHEL compatibility can found at 
    https://access.redhat.com/articles/1299013#OpenJDK_Lifecycle_Dates_and_RHEL_versions

    Control-M/Agent 9.0.19.100 comes bundled with Open Java and Java application is needed for both installation of the Agent and functionality of the Agent.
    In order to install Control-M/Agent 9.0.19.100 or upgrade to this release one must first install or upgrade to release 9.0.19 base. 
    After base release 9.0.19 is in place upgrade to 9.0.19.100:

      Download the 9.0.19.100 file from EPD and extract it in a temporary folder
      
      mkdir <ctm_agent>/patches
    cd <ctm_agent>/patches
    zcat  <donwload>/DRKAI.9.0.19.100_Linux-x86_64.tar.Z | tar xvf -
     
      
      
      Replace the OpenJDK folder that comes with this the patch with the Oracle JRE install with the Agent 
      
       
    • the path to the OpenJDK used for installation is in: <ctm_agent>patches/Setup_files/JRE
    •  
    • rename this folder to OpenJRE
      
      cd <ctm_agentr>patches/Setup_files/ 
      mv JRE  OpenJRE
      
       
    • Copy the Agent JRE at: <Agent home>/ctm_agent/ctm/JRE to the download location above <download location>/UNIX/Linux-x86_64/Setup_files/JRE
      
      mkdir JRE
    cd JRE
    cp -rf <Agent home>/ctm_agent/ctm/JRE/*  .
     
      
      
      Note: 
    For Oracle Linux 5 operating system, the following manual steps should be done when upgrading Control-M/Agent to version 9.0.19.200:
      
      Move the following file to a temporary backup folder before the installation and restore it back after the installation:  
    <download location>/UNIX/Linux-x86_64/Setup_files/upgrade/file_replacements/inventory_additional_Linux-x86_64.xml   
       
      
      
       Run the installation from the extracted location
