CA Performance Management - Usage and Administration DX NetOps

Issue/Introduction

Security scans indicate an older version of java located on the DR host in:

/opt/CA/IMDataRepository_vertica9/

Can this java be updated to a current build?

Cause

The JRE in this directory is only used for the InstallAnywhere installer to extract things.

It's not used by any script or vertica process.

Environment

Dx NetOps Performance Management any version

Resolution

Please copy:

/opt/CA/IMDataRepository_vertica9/drinstall.properties

To a new location and note where you saved it.

This file will be used for future upgrades.

Then feel free to delete the

/opt/CA/IMDataRepository_vertica9/ directory.

  • cd /opt/CA/
  • rm -rf IMDataRepository_vertica9

Additional Information

Please note, there are some diagnostic tools in that path, but if a problem is encountered and we need to use those tools, you can always copy the media back to the host.
