BSA Version 8.5 SP1
I am attempting to build compliance rules to check symbolic links on Linux servers. The symbolic links point to directories, not individual files. I have added the appropriate part (the directories). I have built the rules using the "Directory.Symbolic Link" properties. When I run a test of the job, the rule fail because the check "Directory.Symbolic Link = True" fails. In the test results, BladeLogic shows a value of False for this test, though I have verified that the target directory is in fact a symbolic link.
Am I missing something, or is BladeLogic not functioning as it should?
Here are screenshots of my attempt:
Server Verification of Symbolic Link:
Just a follow up...
I have confirmed with BMC engineers that this is a defect in BSA 8.5 SP1. They have stated it is corrected in BSA 8.5 SP1 Patch 5 and BSA 8.6. We are planning to upgrade to 8.5 SP1 Patch 5 anyway for several other defects in SP1, so I will confirm this is fixed when we do upgrade.
