Pinned topic IBM.CSMAgentRM AIX Apar addressed in Linux Version?

‏2010-05-06T20:02:52Z |
Hello.

We have a customer running the service and productivity tools on RHEL 5. They are also running the same tools (CSM etc) in their AIX environment for Dynamic LPAR operations. They ran into the following issue on AIX:

http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=1207&context=SG11P&dc=DB550&dc=DB510&q1=IZ55597&uid=isg1IZ55597&loc=en_US&cs=UTF-8&lang=all

*
When IBM.CSMAgentRM is setting the Primary HMC IP as part
of polling the HMC, it first attempts to connect using
IPV6 addresses. If those connections fail, it will use the
IPV4 addresses. If the IPV6 addresses are not fully
configured, this results in connection failures and an
increase in destinations found unreachable from netstat -sr.

Problem conclusion

*

When IBM.CSMAgentRM is setting the Primary HMC IP as part
of polling the HMC, it will now attempt to connect using
IPV4 addresses, and if unsuccessful, then use the IPV6
addresses.
Customer would like to know whether this is a potential defect in the current Linux versions of the Service and Productivity tools (csm.client-1.7.1.0-22.ppc.rpm csm.core-1.7.1.0-22.ppc.rpm) or whether this has been addressed in the Linux versions as well.

    Hi, thanks for your patience - it has been determined that the csm 1.7.1.0-22 packages currently posted to the LoP RAS Tools download site do not have this fix and potentially the same problem may occur. The csm.core and csm.client rpms will be updated shortly to address this issue.

    Hi, new CSM Core and Client packages (1.7.1.6-1) have been posted to the RHEL 5/HMC Managed site today to provide the IBM.CSMAgentRM fix in Linux: http://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/set2/sas/f/lopdiags/redhat/hmcmanaged/rhel5.html
