Error description

  • I can not run zOSEventSupport_rules.sh to copy file from
    EventPump directory to linux2s390.
    
    When I installed EventPump 4.2.2.5-TIV-EP-FP0005 for eif probe,
    I can not run zOSEventSupport_rules.sh to copy file from
    EventPump directory to linux2s390. The shell script seems
    resolve the directory as linux3s390. It is different with my
    previous system. The following is the result after I run
    zOSEventSupport_rules.sh:
    
    yangshul@glpauto5:/opt/IBM/tivoli/netcool/omnibus/etc/EventPump>
    ./zOSEventSupport_rules.sh
    
    cp: target `/opt/IBM/tivoli/netcool/omnibus/probes/linux3s390'
    is not a directory
    yangshul@glpauto5:/opt/IBM/tivoli/netcool/omnibus/etc/EventPump>
    
    SUMMARY OF PROBLEM:
    Issues installing the event pump onto SuSE 11 SP2.
    

Local fix

  • Manually copy the files to the correct $ARCH Directory.

    Running zOSEventSupport_rules.sh installation script in Linux
    3.x kernel systems leads to incorrect output. Rules files are
    copied into wrong $NCHOME/omnibus/probes/linux3x86 directory.
    Correct directory name is $NCHOME/omnibus/probes/linux2x86.
    
    Here is a snapshot, from the Linux system, illustrating the
    problem:
    
    von@NC9128110076|/opt/IBM/tivoli/netcool/omnibus/etc/EventPump $
     ./zOSEventSupport_rules.sh
    cp: target `/opt/IBM/tivoli/netcool/omnibus/probes/linux3x86' is
     not a directory
    
    von@NC9128110076|/opt/IBM/tivoli/netcool/omnibus/probes $ ls -l
    total 20
    drwxrwxr-x 3 von users 4096 Aug  1 08:12 linux2x86

    lrwxrwxrwx 1 von users 9 Jul 30 09:29 nco_p_syntax -> nco_probe
    

Problem conclusion

  • zOSEventSupport_rules.sh installation script file was updated to
    support Linux 3.x kernel systems.
    
    There is an associated distributed platform update for Tivoli
    EIF Probe. This update is in MDV 4.2.2.9-TIV-EP-FP0009,
    and can be located on the IBM Tivoli Event Pump support site
    under Downloads.
