Closed as Permanent restriction.
The SRA initial probe is failing during local installation on AIX with RC 111 and may generate a core dump. /tmp/TPC/sra/aix_power/bin # ./Agent -INSTALL -force -SERVERPORT 9549 -SERVERIP 100.100.100.100 -INSTALLLOC "/opt/IBM/TPC" -COMMTYPE DAEMON -AGENTPORT 9510 -debug MAX AGT0481I Computer probe failed with exit code -1. Check log files in directory "/opt/IBM/TPC/agent/log/TPCSERVER" for more information. AGT0384E Install failed, return code 111 Return Code 111 means: Probe failed at installation time. The SRA initial probe is generating core dump on AIX hosts when there are more than 250 volumes attached. The Probe binary has been modified to handle large memory segment.
See ERROR DESCRIPTION.
This is a limitation of TPC 4.2.x. It will be addressed in a later release. The fix for this APAR is targeted for the following maintenance package: | fix pack | 5.1.1-TIV-TPC-FP0003 - target December 2013 http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?&uid=swg21320822 The target dates for future fix packs do not represent a formal commitment by IBM. The dates are subject to change without notice.
Follow these steps for a workaround until an upgrade to a fixed level has occurred. 1. cd /opt/IBM/TPC/agent/bin/ 2. /usr/ccs/bin/ldedit -bmaxdata:0x80000000 Probe 3. Log into the agent machine as *root* <--- very important that it is root. 4. Edit the ".profile" with vi, emacs, or any other editor in the shell 5. Add the following line: "export LDR_CNTRL=MAXDATA=0x80000000" (without quotes). 6. Save changes. 7. Try SRA agent install again as you normally do.
