PowerChute Business Edition unsuccessfully installing on Linux after multiple installations on the server

Issue: 

After multiple installations of PowerChute Business Edition on the same Linux server, a rpmdb PANIC can occur, resulting in the following error message, “rpmdb: PANIC: fatal region error detected; run recovery”. This error message is due to the rpm database becoming corrupted, and requiring a rebuild.

Solution:

Follow the steps below to rebuild the rpm database and successfully install PowerChute:

  1. Remove the rpm database packages and rebuild the database:
rm -f/var/lib/rpm/_db*
rpm --rebuilddb
  1. Install PowerChute Business Edition using the rpm install commands:
rpm -ivh pbeagent-9.5.0-301.XX.rpm
