    AIX - rscd installation, silent/interactive

      Hi,

       

      I have problem, like always, with silent installation RSCD (8.2 SP 3) on AIX.

       

      In interactive installation (./RSCD82-SP3-AIX32.sh) installer creates conf dirs

      • dir /etc/rsc
      • link /usr/lib/rsc to /etc/rsc
      • dir /opt/bmc/bladelogic/NSH/conf is empty

      Everything works fine!

       

       

      Silent installation (sh ./RSCD82-SP3-AIX32.sh –silent)

       

      [nsh-install-defaults]

      INSTALL_DIR=/opt/bmc/bladelogic

      IS_SECURE_AGENT_LOGS=0

      IS_KEYSTROKE_LOGS=1

      NSH_INSTALL_SKEL=1

      NSH_USER_FROM=BLAdmins:BLAdmin

      NSH_USER_TO=root

      TMP_DIR=/tmp

      STARTUP_AIX=1

      export INSTALL_DIR IS_SECURE_AGENT_LOGS IS_KEYSTROKE_LOGS NSH_INSTALL_SKEL NSH_USER_FROM NSH_USER_TO TMP_DIR STARTUP_AIX

       

      creates

      • dir /opt/bmc/bladelogic/NSH/conf
      • link /usr/lib/rsc to /opt/bmc/bladelogic/NSH/conf
      • dir /etc/rsc – doestn’t exixts

      Agent running, but there is a problem with connection to agent. I/O Error, TLS Error occurs.

      And for example Uninstall file refer to /etc/rsc directory.

       

      After adding link

      ln –s /opt/bmc/bladelogic/NSH/conf rsc

      Everything works fine!

       

      Is it normal behavior?

          this sounds like it's creating a 'local' install - for a normal agent install the 'NSH/conf' directory should be empty.

           

          when you ran the silent install were the NSHDIR or KEEPLOCAL variables set ?

           

          the other thing you could try is running:

           

          BSA_DEBUG=true

          export BSA_DEBUG

          ./RSCD82-SP3-AIX32.sh –silent > rscd.out 2>&1

           

          and then we can look at the output and see why it's not working correctly.
