Agent installation tar files for Linux on Power Systems (Little Endian)

Had an issue recently which was due to the correct code not being used.

In this case it was for a ppc64le machine.

The install was started but failed with the following in the logs:

AX - IBM Tivoli Monitoring Shared Libraries [version 06351400]:

Property                           Result   Found                                 Expected           
========                           ======   =====                                 ========           
CpuArchitecture                    FAIL     ppc64le                               i686,x86_64        

KGS - IBM GSKit Security Interface [version 08005056]:
Property                           Result   Found                                 Expected           
========                           ======   =====                                 ========           
CpuArchitecture                    FAIL     ppc64le                               i686,x86_64


This indicates that the code being used was expecting an i686 or x86_64 operating system but found ppc64le

This was because the wrong installation code was used.

At this moment in time (end 2018) the code need to install on ppc64le is


CNW7YML advanced_agents_plinuxle_8.1.4.0.5.tar

CNW8AML base_agents_plinuxle_8.1.4.0.5.tar
