Installation of Storage Foundation 6.0 and 6.0.1 fails due to missing rpms. When performing a preinstall check (installer -precheck) for Storage Foundation (SF) 6.0 / 6.0.1 on RedHat Linux 6.2 / 6.3 release, it complains about the required operating system (OS) rpms not being installed, despite that the latest release of rpms have been installed on the system.
found on system1:
pam-1.1.1-8.el6.i686 libstdc++-4.4.5-6.el6.i686 libgcc-4.4.5-6.el6.i686
RedHat Enterprise Level (RHEL) 6
Storage Foundation 6.0, 6.0.1
CPI installer recognizes the higher version of required rpms.
However, in this case, the required rpms for [rpmname]-[version].i686' (.i686 extension) were missing on the system. Irrespective of whether the platform is x86_64 or i686, SF 6.0 (and above) requires certain required OS rpms for both platforms, i.e., x86_64 and i686 to be installed.
"libgcc" => "libgcc-4.4.5-6.el6.i686 libgcc-4.4.5-6.el6.x86_64",
"libstdc++" => "libstdc++-4.4.5-6.el6.i686 libstdc++-4.4.5-6.el6.x86_64",
"nss-softokn-freebl(x86-32)" => "nss-softokn-freebl-3.12.9-3.el6.i686",
The following versions (or above) of required OS rpms need to be installed to successfully install Storage Foundation.
These libraries are maintained by Red Hat which has other libraries associated. For installing the Storage Foundation required libraries, please mount your RHEL 6 install DVD image on system and then do rpm command with option --nodeps.
# rpm -ivh --nodeps <library software with adv version.i686.rpm>
