Error installing the Guardium Installation Manager (GIM)
When you attempt to install the Guardium Installation Manager (GIM) on RHEL6, you see the following error message.
cp: cannot stat `/usr/local/GIM/modules/central_logger.log': No such file or directory Installation failed
Various Linux distributions such as RedHat 6 deprecated the use of the traditional init daemon that uses the etc/inittab file. They replaced it with an init process called Upstart. Upstart uses the /etc/event.d and /etc/init directories for the automated start, stop, and respawn of processes.
The Guardium Installation Manager (GIM) is affected.
Resolving the problem
To fix the issue, complete the following steps.
- Remove the partial GIM installation.
- Create the /etc/event.d directory manually with the command mkdir /etc/event.d
- Run the GIM installer.
