    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Error messages when bin/ihs_install     *
    *                      was invoked through a symlink and IHS   *
    *                      is later updated.                       *

    * RECOMMENDATION:  Apply this fix                              *
    ****************************************************************
    An intermediate symbolic link can be used for IHS so that the
    server can be changed to use /usr/lpp/IHSA or
    /usr/lpp/ihsa_zos. When IHS is started after a new fix pack is
    installed, it will run chk_links to check/update symbolic
    links.  The chk_links puts out this error because it's not
    expecting an intermediate symbolic link to be used and this
    message is seen:
    ln: FSUM6245 link to target failed: EDC5129I No such file or
    directory. (errno2=0x0594003D)
    chk_links needs to be updated to handle this case.
    

Problem conclusion

  • chk_links was updated to handle using an intermediate symbolic
    link.
    
    This fix is targeted for IBM HTTP Server fix packs:
    - 8.0.0.15
    - 8.5.5.14
    - 9.0.0.8
