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.

NOTE: This issue is fixed in PowerChute Business Edition v10 which is available for download on the APC website.


It s recommended to uninstall older versions of PowerChute and install PowerChute Business Edition version 10

When running an older version of PowerChute

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

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"
