Error description

  • When Tivoli Storage Manager API 64bit client,
    TIVsm-API64.x86_64.rpm, is uninstalled it will not remove
    /usr/lib64/libgpfs.so
    /usr/lib64/libdmapi.so
    links
    
    This will happen if there are no 32bit API versions of
    /usr/lib/libgpfs.so
    /usr/lib/libdmapi.so
    links which are created by the 32bit API being installed.
    
    Currently the uninstall process checks for the 32bit versions
    first, and if they are not
    not existing, will not check for the 64bit versions.
    
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected:
    Tivoli Storage Manager client version 6.x and 7.1.x
    on Linux platform
    
    Initial Impact:
    Medium

Local fix

  • Manually remove the
    /usr/lib64/libgpfs.so
    /usr/lib64/libdmapi.so
    links
