    Accounting for Multiple Cygwin Paths for Windows Hosts

    982742
      Hello everyone,

      We are using EM12cR2 (installed on RHEL) but need to monitor a number of Windows hosts. For most Windows hosts, Cygwin is installed in the default path (C:\cygwin) but we also have Citrix XenApp servers that we would like to monitor but they do not have a C: drive, just M:. I've seen the settings file that allows someone to change the Cygwin path but I can't find information on whether or not you can add multiple paths to that line and what that syntax would be. I've also seen an older Citrix plug-in but I don't see anything stating it's compatibility with this version of EM. If I could, I would test out a number of scenarios in a lab environment but we don't have that option.

      Does anyone know if it's possible to add multiple Cygwin paths (and what the syntax is), if the Citrix plug-in is compatible with EM12cR2, or if there's another way to do this that I'm not thinking of?

      Thank you,
      EMS

          Hi ,

          you have to update the following properties in $OMS_HOME/oui/prov/ssPaths_msplats.properties to reflect the new cygwin installation location.

          eg.

          From
          SSH_PATH=C:/cygwin/bin/ssh.exe
          SCP_PATH=C:/cygwin/bin/scp.exe
          MKDIR_PATH=C:/cygwin/bin/mkdir.exe
          SH_PATH=C:/cygwin/bin/sh.exe
          CHMOD_PATH=C:/cygwin/bin/chmod.exe
          TRUE=C:/cygwin/bin/true.exe


          To
          SSH_PATH=M:/cygwin/bin/ssh.exe
          SCP_PATH=M:/cygwin/bin/scp.exe
          MKDIR_PATH=M:/cygwin/bin/mkdir.exe
          SH_PATH=M:/cygwin/bin/sh.exe
          CHMOD_PATH=M:/cygwin/bin/chmod.exe
          TRUE=M:/cygwin/bin/true.exe

          thanks,

            Sorry - I just saw this post.

            Changing all the entries from C: to M: still only accounts for one path. Can you account for multiple paths (all other servers have CYGWIN on the C: but the Citrix servers only have M: - I need to account for both install locations)

            Thanks
