Red Hat subscription 

The product requires some additional libraries to be present on the system (see list below).

The preferred method to add any missing libraries is to use the yum command to fetch the necessary library packages from the RHN (Red Hat Network) repository via the Internet. To use this method, a Red Hat subscription is needed. Register the system by clicking System >Administration > Red Hat Subscription Manager in the menu on the server itself.  After registering the system, you can use yum install to download and install the required libraries from the RHN.

X Windows required

The TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server installer requires a graphical user interface. You must install X Windows.

On the Red Hat Enterprise Linux terminal, type yum grouplist and check that X Window System is listed.  If not, then run yum groupinstall 'X Window System' to install the necessary packages.   

Required libraries

Ensure that the following libraries are present to install TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server. To install the libraries, the following commands can be used.

Notes

  • If an error occurs while installing a 32-bit library, try rerunning the install command with both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the library. For example, yum install pam.i686 pam.x86_64 (RHEL) or zypper pam-32bit pam (SUSE)
  • After installing the libraries, check that the libraries are not corrupted.
    • yum check (Red Hat Enterprise Linux)
    • zypper verify (SUSE Linux)
  • BMC products are certified for use on supported operating system versions. BMC does not explicitly test for OS patches/updates that are released after a BMC product is released.
  • BMC products should work fine with minor updates to these supported operating systems. For assistance, please contact BMC Customer Support.
