Fix Pack

Installing InfoSphere Global Name Management artifacts (V11.5.0.3 and earlier)

With the fix pack, you can optionally use InfoSphere® Global Name Management version 5.0 in the name comparison functions in Big Match. To be able to use the GNM functions, you must install the GNM artifacts in a Big Match cluster.

Before you begin

You must install Global Name Management 5.0 and have iFix gnm_5.0.0.1.laifix001 deployed before using this task. You should have the GNM 5.0 installation and iFix gnm_5.0.0.1.laifix001 deployed on Linux®.

You must also have Big Match installed.


  1. After installing Big Match, go to BIGMATCH_HOME/bin/ in your Big Match cluster and copy the script to the location where Global Name Management 5.0 is installed.
  2. Run the script.
    This step generates the gnm_bigmatch_package.tar.gz file in the Global Name Management installation root directory.
  3. Copy the gnm_bigmatch_package.tar.gz file to every node in the Big Match cluster.
  4. Run the script on every node in the cluster as sudo.
    $BIGMATCH_HOME/bin/ </absolute/path/to/>
  5. First restart HBase and then Big Match service from Ambari to ensure that the Global Name Management libraries are properly symlinked into Hadoop.
