Operating system requirements

Support for third-party products

To receive full support for a BMC product, you must have such product installed in a supported environment, as specified in the BMC product documentation. If a third-party vendor cancels support for one of its products (such as an operating system or subsystem), and that third-party product integrates or interacts with the BMC product you have licensed, you must upgrade to a supported version of that third-party product before BMC Customer Support can provide you with support for the affected BMC product.

On Red Hat Enterprise Linux, the following libraries must be installed before installing the Remote cell.   

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.

    #ln -s libnsl.so.3.0.0 libnsl.so.2
    #yum install libcrypt.so.1
    
    
  2. Check if /etc/init.d is avaialble, if not create symbolic link of /etc/init.d to /etc/rc.d/init.d

    #cd /etc
    #ln -s rc.d/init.d  init.d
  3. Run command:
    #yum install chkconfig

For Remote Cell and Integration Services, only new install of 11.3.06 is supported on RHEL 9.x.

Note

  •  To avoid errors while installing 32-bit libraries, BMC recommends that you install 32-bit libraries together with the 64-bit libraries.
  • After installing the libraries, run yum check to ensure that the libraries are not corrupt.

    For RHEL8.6, is these library still required? compat-libstdc++-296.i686 compat-libstdc++-296.x86_64
