Description

When the cas_agent subsystem is running on an AIX agent, it logs messages similar to the following:

bin/nonstop_aix @/var/opt/tivoli/ep/runtime/nonstop/config/nonstop.properties  

They can be seen with the alog -o -f /var/adm/ras/conslog command or on the vterm to this system using HMC.

This occurs with agents that have the following cas.agent fileset version:

cas.agent 1.4.2.40


Fix

A fix will be available in a later version.

Work-around

To disable the messages, you should perform the following steps:

1. Stop the subsystem by issuing the following command:

stopsrc -s cas_agent
2. Wait using the following command until the subsystem is inoperative:

lssrc -s cas_agent
3. Save /var/opt/tivoli/ep/runtime/nonstop/bin/cas_src.sh: cp /var/opt/tivoli/ep/runtime/nonstop/bin/cas_src.sh /var/opt/tivoli/ep/runtime/nonstop/bin/cas_src.sh.org
4. Edit /var/opt/tivoli/ep/runtime/nonstop/bin/cas_src.sh as follows:

Replace the following code snippet:

do
/usr/bin/sleep 10
/usr/bin/ps -ef | grep nonstop_aix

# if nonstop_aix is not found, then exit
["$?" -ne 0] && break

done

with the following code:

do
/usr/bin/sleep 10
 NONSTOP_PID1=`/usr/bin/ps -ef|/usr/bin/grep '\/var\/opt\/tivoli\/ep'|/usr/bin/grep nonstop_aix|/usr/bin/grep -v grep|/
usr/bin/awk '{print $2}'`
NONSTOP_PID2=`/usr/bin/ps -ef|/usr/bin/grep '\/opt\/ibm\/director\/agent'|/usr/bin/grep nonstop_aix|/usr/bin/grep -v g
rep|/usr/bin/awk '{print $2}'`

# if nonstop_aix is not found then exit
if [[ "$NONSTOP_PID1" == "" && "$NONSTOP_PID2" == "" ]]; then
break
fi

done

5. Start the subsystem by issuing the following command:

startsrc -s cas_agent
