It could be that the current shell has some limit in the number of files open or number of processes
Please check the value of ulimit -n.
or increase the value by typing for ie
ulimit -n 20480, then run the setup again
if this still doesn't help, please send us the output of
I would check the installation log as this might help also.
If the agent is crashing then
This may happen if the PATROL Agent is falling short of resources on the server. Please modify the following values in /etc/security/limits file. -1 implies there are no limits:
Patrol User :
rss = -1
stack = -1
data = -1
-> Once you apply the changes, please check the ulimit output.
# ulimit -Ha
I don't think you are getting that far?
I had changed the open files number to 20480, but still not work.
This is my ulimit -a result:
core file size (blocks, -c) unlimited
data seg size (kbytes, -d) unlimited
scheduling priority (-e) 0
file size (blocks, -f) unlimited
pending signals (-i) 3763
max locked memory (kbytes, -l) 64
max memory size (kbytes, -m) unlimited
open files (-n) 20480
pipe size (512 bytes, -p) 8
POSIX message queues (bytes, -q) 819200
real-time priority (-r) 0
stack size (kbytes, -s) 8192
cpu time (seconds, -t) unlimited
max user processes (-u) 3763
virtual memory (kbytes, -v) unlimited
file locks (-x) unlimited
And I had found a silent install is no problem, it only failure on attend installation.
If silent install works, make sure the same options used in silent install are fed. That might help.
somehow read command fails to get the correct data from stdin (web browser)
if you check read command at line 1226 , you will have something as
if [ "$BROWSER" -eq 0 ] ; then
asciitext 13 $url
echo $N "-> $C"
So read here receives some data from the browser which makes the sh to fail with the message read error: 0: Resource temporarily unavailable
It could be related to your browser, what type of browser are you using ?
you may also try to run the install in trace mode
./setup.sh -serveronly -timeout 300 -trace
trace files will be located on a folder hostname-**** under /home/user/BMCINSTALL/
