AMP in bad state after running YUM

Aruba Employee

Customer ran YUM to update CentOS packages as recommended on p.199 of User's Guide (see excerpt below). 

NOTE: This may not be advisable for CentOS 5 and later. Packages are updated as part of AWMS updates.

Customer noticed that AMP was repeatedly and unsuccessfully trying to restart the service PersistentTupleSpaces (and perhaps also the AsyncLoggerClient service among others).

Solution:
Try running make from the AMP command line:

Login as root. Enter the following commands:
# root (Alias that takes you to the director: /root/svn/mercury)
# make


From AWMS 6.0 User's Guide p.199:
"AirWave recommends running Yum to ensure your packages are up to date so your AMP is as secure as possible if you are running RHEL 4, CentOS 4 or FC3."

Customer is running on CentOS 5 as part of AWMS 6.0.9 install, so this recommendation may not be advisable for CentOS 5.

What is YUM?
The Yellow dog Updater, Modified (YUM) is a free software/open source command line package management utility for RPM-compatible Linux operating systems. 

Yum is a full rewrite of its predecessor tool, Yellowdog Updater (YUP), and was developed primarily in order to update and manage Red Hat Linux systems... ...it has been adopted by Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Fedora, CentOS, and many other RPM-based Linux distributions, including Yellow Dog Linux itself, where it has replaced the original YUP utility.
