how was the agent installed? if it was installed w/ the sh installer then run the NSH/Uninstall. if it was installed via a package - rpm, pkg, bff, etc use the uninstall method for the installer type - eg 'rpm -e <pkgname>'
Hi Bill, thank you.
I've already used 'rpm -e <pkgname>', but then whenever I try a new installation I get the following error:
There was a problem creating the bladmin group and bladmin user. This group and user is require rver Automation Console to run. The following was run to try to create the group: groupadd bladmin The following was run to try to create the user: useradd -g bladmin -s /bin/sh -c BMC BladeLogic Admin Account -d /usr/opt/SP/app/bmc/bladelo Please correct this issue and re-run the installer.
It is ought to the server that uses LDAP for the 'bladmin' group. But even disabling the connection to LDAP, it does not work.
What can I try then?
how did you disable the ldap connection ?
there should be a check for the bladmin group and user... so i'm not sure why that wouldn't return... what version of blade is this ? and you are trying to install what here - the appserver ?
I'm following this guide: https://docs.bmc.com/docs/pages/releaseview.action?pageId=107843479
to install the PXE/TFTP, but it requires to uninstall the RSCD agent and then launch the BBSAversion-platform in this case for "Linux" and "version=8.3.00" to install:
The installer uses ‘groupmod’ and ‘id’ to look for the group and user.
If ldap is connected would those see the group and user? and w/ it ‘disconnected’ (how?) what happens ?
I was able to disable the ldap and the installation went fine.
I used the following 2 commands to disable the ldap:
1. from the "/etc/nsswitch.conf" file, I changed: sudoers: files ldap --> sudoers: files
2. executed the command: authconfig --disableldapauth --disableldap --enableshadow --updateall
So I can confirm that the command 'rpm -e BladeLogic...' uninstalls the rscd agent.
Thank you Bill.
i would expect useradd and id commands to be ldap aware if nsswitch was setup properly - what was on the 'passwd' and 'group' lines ?
