Pinned topic IBM DS Storage Manager 10.86 for x86_64 Linux

‏2013-05-10T17:14:18Z |

Wanting to get the new DS Storage Manager 10.86 on my x86_64 Linux systems, I used DownloadDirector to get the  SM10.86_Linux_64bit_x86-64_single-10.86.x5.28.tgz tarball (since I am using the RPMs to maintain my systems that need this).  However, upon unpacking it, I find these RPMs are shipped:

 SMruntime-LINUX-10.86.0A05.0000-1.ia64.rpm

 SMagent-LINUX-10.03.0A05.0000-1.ia64.rpm

 SMutil-LINUX-10.01.0A05.0000-1.ia64.rpm

Attempting to install them, RPM notes these are for Itanium, which is not the same as x86_64.  (It isn't just the file name that is wrong.)  If I peek at the file lists, they do look to install in the amd64 locations -- but what are these, really?

    The  SM10.86_Linux_64bit_x86-64_single-10.86.x5.28.tgz has the same checksum as the one I previously downloaded.  I refreshed the browser cache and used a different local directory to make sure I'm not checking the same file.  But see:

     

    $ tar -tzf SM10.86_Linux_64bit_x86-64_single-10.86.x5.28.tgz |grep ia64
    Linux_x64_10p86_single/Linux_x86-64/SMagent-LINUX-10.03.0A05.0000-1.ia64.rpm
    Linux_x64_10p86_single/Linux_x86-64/SMruntime-LINUX-10.86.0A05.0000-1.ia64.rpm
    Linux_x64_10p86_single/Linux_x86-64/SMutil-LINUX-10.01.0A05.0000-1.ia64.rpm
     

    and rpm reports that the architecture really is ia64.
