Affected Products and Versions


IBM Spectrum Conductor with Spark 2.2.0, and IBM Spectrum Conductor with Spark 2.2.1, which support Linux and Linux on POWERLE.

Remediation/Fixes


Download steps

Download the patch corresponding to your IBM Spectrum Conductor with Spark version from the following location: http://www.ibm.com/eserver/support/fixes/

IBM Spectrum Conductor with Spark 2.2.0 (x86_64) cws-2.2.0.0_x86_64_build484357
IBM Spectrum Conductor with Spark 2.2.0 (ppc64le) cws-2.2.0.0_ppc64le_build484357
IBM Spectrum Conductor with Spark 2.2.1 (x86_64) cws-2.2.1.0_x86_64_build484485
IBM Spectrum Conductor with Spark 2.2.1 (ppc64le) cws-2.2.1.0_ppc64le_build484485

Installation steps

Follow the steps in the readme file.

1. Log on to each host in your cluster (root or sudo to root permission).

2. Define the cluster properties by setting the following environment variables. If you do not set the optional environment variables, the default values are used.

Option Description
CLUSTERADMIN Mandatory if you are installing as root. Set to any valid operating user account, which then owns all installation files. For example: export CLUSTERADMIN=egoadmin

3. Upgrade the JRE by using the RPM in this interim fix.

Note: RPM version 4.2.1 or later must be installed on the host. Ensure that you replace dbpath_location in the following rpm commands to the path to your database.

For example, in IBM Spectrum Conductor with Spark 2.2.0:

> mkdir -p /tmp/cws22build484357

> tar zxof cws-2.2.0.0_x86_64_build484357.tgz -C /tmp/cws22build484357

> rpm -ivh --replacefiles --prefix $EGO_TOP --dbpath dbpath_location /tmp/cws22build484357/egojre-8.0.5.10.x86_64.rpm

Note: The cshrc.jre file and the profile.jre file are updated in this step to the current JRE version. If you have made copies of these files, ensure that you update the copied files with the new JRE version.

4. Start the cluster:

> egosh ego start all

5. Log in to the cluster management console as the cluster administrator and start the required Spark instance groups.

Verify the installation

1. Run the rpm –qa command to verify the installation. For example:

> rpm -qa --dbpath dbpath_location |grep egojre

egojre-8.0.5.10-484357.x86_64
