Release Notes

This document summarizes the contents and special instructions for the Tru64 UNIX Insight Management Agents components contained in this kit. For information about installing or removing patches, and general patch  management, execute the im_patch file which is part of the patch-kit.

1) This Patch Kit Distribution contains

  • Bugfix in libcpqhmmo.so to stop hmmo's from exiting on systems with short hostname of < or = to 8 characters.

 The components in this kit are being released early for general customer use. Components in this kit are installed by running im_patch from the directory in which the kit was untarred. For example, as root on the target system:

  • mkdir -p /tmp/patchkit

  • cd /tmp/patchkit

  • copy the patch-kit CPQIM310.HTTP.01.tar.gz to /tmp/patchkit

  • gunzip CPQIM310.HTTP.01.tar.gz

  • tar -xvf CPQIM310.HTTP.01.tar

  • ./im_patch -i CPQIM310.HTTP.01

2) Special Instructions: If this patch kit is being installed on a cluster, it is sufficient to do so on only one of the nodes. But in order for the patch to take effect on the other nodes, the agents have to be manually re-started. On all other nodes run the following commands,

  • #/sbin/init.d/snmpd stop

  • #/sbin/init.d/insightd start

  • #/sbin/init.d/snmpd start

  • #/sbin/init.d/insightd start

3) Summary of Insight Management patch components contained in this kit:

 PatchId                                    Summary Of Fix
CPQIM310.HTTP.01            Fix for hmmos exiting on systems with short hostname

4) Additional information from Engineering

The Insight Manager Web Agent (insightd) or any other HMMO linking to the Insight Manager HTTP server library (libcpqhmmo.so) running on systems with a hostname that is < = than 8 characters will immediately exit leaving a core dump. Hostnames with FQDN (fully qualified domain names) in most cases do not manifest this problem because of the overall hostname length being greater than 8 characters. This patch provides an updated Insight Manager HTTP library  (libcpqhmmo.so) that has the fix for the problem.
