    You are not receiving email alerts. 

    The email settings on your computer are not configured to receive alerts from . 

    Review the email settings and configure your computer to receive email messages from . For more information, see Preinstallation tasks.

    Issues occur after installation on Solaris 10

    After installing BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server on Solaris 10, attempts to log on into the Solaris server fail because the required permissions are missing.

    Provide the required permissions

    The directory where the Infrastructure Management Solaris server is installed (and all of its parent directories) must have 755 permissions and must be owned by the root user and other group. Without these permissions and ownership, you cannot login to the Infrastructure Management Solaris server. These permissions and ownership must exist before you begin the installation.

    No port specified for the agent

    The Java virtual machine (JVM) cannot find the port number for the agent. 

    The JVM cannot find the port number for Infrastructure Management in the configuration file.(The default port number is 12124.) 

    Verify the following settings: 

    • Verify the setting for the port in the proactivenet_agent_install.log file, which is located in the following directory:
      installationDirectory/pw/pronto/bin 
    • Verify whether the port is correctly defined in the main configuration file, which is located in the following directory:
      installationDirectory/pw/pronto/conf/pronet.conf 
    • Verify whether the pronet.apps.agent.port property is correctly defined. The pronet.apps.agent.port property is in the custom configuration file, which is located in the following directory:
      installationDirectory/pw/custom/conf/pronet.conf 
    • If the port is not defined correctly in the pronet.apps.agent.port property, perform the following steps to define the port in the configuration file:

      Note

      Properties defined in the custom configuration file override the value in the main configuration file. The default port for is 12124. Do not change the default port without reason.

      1. For Microsoft Windows, replace installationDirectory with installationDirectory/agent
      2. In the agentInstall/pronto/conf/pronet.conf file, modify the pronet.apps.agent.port property by adding the following port specification: 
        pronet.apps.agent.port=specifyPort 
      3. Stop and restart .

    Required libraries for msend are missing for the Integration Service on Linux systems

    The libraries required for msend are missing. 

    This error occurs when required libraries for msend are missing (for example, libstdc++.so.6 and libgcc_s.so.1). 
    To correct this issue, perform the following actions: 

    1. Set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to point to installationDirectory/pw/server/bin
    2. To use LD_LIBRARY_PATH, set it as an environment variable. 

      In bash: 
      $ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH 

      In csh: 
      > setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH /usr/local/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

    When choosing the installation directory, the Choose Folder window loses focus

    The Choose Folder window loses focus. 

    Use the default path, C:\Program Files.

    Redirection error message displayed in Mozilla Firefox

    A redirection error message is displayed in Mozilla Firefox when you try to log on to the Infrastructure Management operator console.

    While installing BMC Atrium SSO, ensure that the domain value of the cookie is the network domain of BMC Atrium SSO or one of its parent domains. For more information, see the BMC Atrium Single Sign-On online technical documentation. 

    In the Infrastructure Management operator console, Infrastructure Management Integrations dialog box, BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server Hostname.Domain field, ensure that you enter the FQDN name of the server. For more information, see Configuring Infrastructure Management Integrations using the operator console.

    Installation on an Oracle database fails

    If the installation of the BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server on an Oracle database fails, see the oracleDBAIface.log file for potential causes of the failure. The oracleDBAIface.log file is located in the temporaryDirectory/pw/pronto directory.

      The file is located in the following directory, depending on your operating system:
      • (Microsoft WindowsC:\Windows\
      • (UNIX/etc/
    2. Run the uninstaller to uninstall the Infrastructure Management Server server. If the uninstaller was not created due to failed install, perform the steps provided in Uninstaller not created.
    3. Remove the Infrastructure Management folder from the computer.

    Uninstaller not created

    If the uninstaller was not created due to failed install, perform the following steps depending on your operating system:

    1. (Microsoft Windows and UNIX) Remove the entire directory where the Infrastructure Management Server server is installed.

    Workaround:

    1. On the primary server, open a command prompt.
    2. Go to the <installation directory>\pw\apache\bin\ directory and run the following command:

      httpd.exe -k install -n "ProactiveNetApache"

      The Apache service is created.
    3. Restart the BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server.

    Installation on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7.1 fails

    When installing the BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7.1 operating system, the installation fails with the library validation error. 

    To avoid this issue, run the following steps:

    1. Run the installer and click Next.
    2. When the license agreement page is displayed, open the /etc/redhat-release file using any editor tool.
