Better support for systems with strict security in the SORT Data Collector and installrp
If /var/tmp is mounted with noexec option then the sort data collector creates an alomost empty veritas explorer file.
If /var/tmp is mounted with noexec option then installrp fails to fully install a rolling patch but reports the status as succeeded.
The work-around is:
./sortdc -vxexplorer -tmppath=/root/sortdc-tmp
What we would like to seen in a future versions:
- This option/usage is should be listed in the output of "./sortdc -h" or the README file.
- We would like to see an error if someone runs sortdc without this option with a noexec mounted /var/tmp. At best it would prompt for an alternative tmppath.
Please test all SFHA products with /tmp and /var/tmp mounted with noexec option during QA.
