Installation of Agent fails on RHEL 5.8, 5.9, 5.10, 5.11 after running install_pbeagent_linux.sh
The following message appears:
Error: dl failure on line xxx
Error: failed /bin/java/jre/1.7.0_25/lib/i386/server/libjvm.so, because /bin/java/jre/1.7.0_25/lib/i386/server/libjvm.so: cannot restore segment prot after reloc: Permission denied
PowerChute Business Edition
OS: RHEL 5.8, 5.9, 5.10, 5.11 x64, x86Build: PowerChute Business 9.2.1, 9.2.0, 9.1.1, 9.0.4 and 9.0.3 OEM Basic and 25 Node Deluxe
This problem is caused by SELinux enforcing an access policy. The policy forbids the Agent installer to change the attributes of memory protection for a memory segment.
RedHat Enterprise Linux has SELinux set to "Enforcing" mode by default.
1. Use the change context command to run text relocation on the file libjvm.so: Type the following into the command line:
chcon -t textrel_shlib_t <jre_path>/lib/i386/server/libjvm.so
where <jre_path> is the path of the Java JRE that was originally packaged with PowerChute:
For example command for PCBE 9.2.1 will be: "chcon -t textrel_shlib_t /usr/local/bin/java/jre/1.8.0_102/lib/i386/server/libjvm.so"
2. Run the PowerChute Agent configuration script to complete the installation. Type the following into the command line: cd /opt/APC/PowerChuteBusinessEdition/Agent ./config.sh
