    Enterprise Manager Ops Center on Solaris SPARC 11.1 Installation Error

    User368268
      Hi All,

      Has anyone installed Enterprise Manager Ops Center on Solaris SPARC 11.1? I am getting the following error:

      root@s2:/var/tmp/OC/xvmoc_full_bundle# ./install
      Verifying we can reach the solaris IPS repository.
      This may take a couple of minutes if it is not currently reachable.
      solaris IPS publisher is reachable
      Error: //solaris/entire@0.5.11,5.11-0.175.0.0.0.2.0 not found in solaris IPS repository

      The Error is documented in the following MOS note:

      I followed the instructions but it doesn't seem to solve the problem.

          Are you using a local repository? Could it have been built with only 11.1 packages and not 11 packages? The error message shows it's checking for version ...175.0... (Solaris 11 11/11) and you've only shown the 11.1 version (...175.1...). Could you run the command from the 1470879.1 doc to see if your repo also has the older version?

          pkg info -g <REPO_URL> //solaris/entire\@0.5.11,5.11-0.175.0.0.0.2.0

            I get the same error when attempting to install OC 12.1.2.2161 on Solaris 11.1 x86.
            I have a local repository which I created from the Solaris 11.1 repo ISO's.

            # ./install
            Verifying we can reach the solaris IPS repository.
            This may take a couple of minutes if it is not currently reachable.
            solaris IPS publisher is reachable
            Error: //solaris/entire@0.5.11,5.11-0.175.0.0.0.2.0 not found in solaris IPS repository, exiting


            Looking at the code in the installer script, I see that it is checking the repository for Sol 11.0

            <snip>
            # The Solaris entire package that will be included in any repo that contains S11 GA
            # which is currently the min S11 version that we support
            my $SOLARIS_11_GA_ENTIRE = "//solaris/entire\@0.5.11,5.11-0.175.0.0.0.2.0";
            </snip>

            ...and a little further on...

            <snip>
            # now check to be sure S11 GA is available from the solaris repo
            $ret = system("pkg info -r $SOLARIS_11_GA_ENTIRE > /dev/null 2>&1");
            $ret=$?>>8;
            if($ret) {
            print "Error: $SOLARIS_11_GA_ENTIRE not found in solaris IPS repository, exiting\n";
            exit 1;
            }
            </snip>


            This would imply that I need to install a Sol 11.0 local repository and then upgrade the repository to 11.1 ??

            I would have thought that a fresh build using the latest version of OC should be checking for a MINIMUM of 11.0 and been happy to only find 11.1.
            Is this a bug or am I missing something ?

              I don't know if it's a bug or a feature, but it is looking for the 11GA version of the package: after I rsync'd a 11GA repo into my existing 11.1 (so both versions of the package were available) that error message went away.

                I took an even easier option... I commented out the "exit 1" in the installer script. :)
                The installation then proceeded without any further complaints.

                I guess this means that I won't be able to use this repository for Sol 11.0 assets until I do as you did, and install the 11.0 repo files. That's not a biggie for me at the moment, as aside from the Ops Center servers, we have no other Solaris 11 servers in our environment.

                I do find it odd that the installer script should choose to exit if a Sol 11 repo is not found. I'm sure that not all OC users intend to manage Solaris 11 assets immediately. One should be able to install the EC software on a Sol 11 server, and worry about the Sol 11 repository later.

                Anyhow, thanks for your input halycon. I hope our discussion has helped the original poster.
