PRODUCT:  HP Insight Management Agents for Tru64 UNIX
SOURCE:     Hewlett-Packard Company

A shell script-based, compressed tar Patch-kit for HP Insight Management Agents V3.3 on Tru64 UNIX (CPQIM330) that contains solution  to the following problem:

  •  A run-time dependency error has been detected in the HP Tru64 Management HTTP Server (libcpqhmmo.so). The error is a result of HTTP server run-time dependency on shared library, libexpat.so, resulting in a failure to access HTTP server by WEB-based applications (HMMO).

The Patch-Kit Installation Instructions, Patch Summary and Release Notes sections provide patch kit installation and removal instructions and a summary of each patch. Please read these sections prior to installing patches on your system.


  • Install the patch components using the shell-script, "im_patch" that is included in this patch-kit.
  • By running the im_patch script without any option, the user can get to know the various command-line options supported by the im_patch.


  1. Login as root into the system where the patch needs to be install
  2. mkdir -p /tmp/patchkit
  3. cd /tmp/patchkit
  4. copy the patch-kit CPQIM330.HTTP.01.tar.gz to /tmp/patchkit
  5. gunzip CPQIM330.HTTP.01.tar.gz
  6. tar -xvf CPQIM330.HTTP.01.tar
  7. ./im_patch -i CPQIM330.HTTP.01

You must have installed HP Tru64 Insight Management Agents base-kit CPQIM330, prior to installing this Patch-Kit. This patch kit is applicable to Tru64 UNIX version 5.1A and above.


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:

The 'Management HTTP Server' with a fix to resolve run-time dependency of libexpat.so shared library.

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.

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 by executing the following commands:

#/sbin/init.d/insightd stop
#/sbin/init.d/snmpd stop
#/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
----------------    ------------------------------------------------------
CPQIM330.HTTP.01    libcpqhmmo.so that has a fix to resolve libexpat.so shared library
		    run-time dependency.

4) Additional information from Engineering

The 'Management HTTP Server' released as part of Insight Management Agents V3.3 has run-time dependency with shared library, libexpat.so.

HP has corrected the following run-time dependency in Insight Manager HTTP server by creating an rpath record. The loader uses the rpath record to search for shared libraries at run-time and resolve dependencies.

For Tru64 UNIX V5.1 and below, the above rpath mechanism is not supported by the loader. Add a shell wrapper around each executable that interacts with the 'HTTP' server, and set LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/var/opt/CPQIM330/lib in the wrapper before calling the executable.
