A change in lsm behaviour was identified that causes breakage with some packages. When deploying operating systems from a CA ITCM Domain Manager or via CA Spectrum Automation Manager it is possible to auto-install the CA ITCM Agent + SD plugin package. Without following the instructions below the package deployed would contain an older version of lsm which could cause problems when attempting to subsequently deploy other packages.
The problem affects target operating systems supported by CA ITCM for these major platforms.
The following fixes provide an updated version of lsm that should be used within the following procedure. The specific file that should be extracted and used is named "ca-sm-installer".
T2DF267 - Linux
T2DF268 - Sol Int
T2DF269 - Sol SPARC
T2DF270 - HP
T2DF271 - AIX
This creates a new version of the SD agent package used by OSIM within the Software Package Library and updates the SD agent package used within in the DMDeploy package library. Both of these packages have a new version number and an updated version of lsm.
OSIM will automatically detect this package update and will create and deliver an updated version of the agent to the Scalability Server (Boot Server). This will ensure that the updated SD Agent package is used when automatically deploying the agent along with an OS deployment.
A design change in PIF 4.5 affected the way in which environments for the PREPIF and PRESTART-phase callout scripts were being setup.
