During a recent TBSM v6.1 install I had a strange issue that resulted in a generic “install failed” error directing me to check the logs.zip file. There are many different logs and files contained within logs.zip, in this case the key one was named “DeploymentPlan.log” located in the directory “logs[INSTALL_1212_11.05]”. The entries of interest were:
i.e. the Installation of the OMNIbus Fixpack had failed.
I tried a manual install of the Fixpack to further diagnose the problem, which resulted in the error:
It was the location of the suggested script that was the give away here…I was installing as the user tbsm61 and hence the deployment engine should be installed in the user’s home directory. The path listed indicated an installation by the root user.
The deployment engine instance in the path “/usr/ibm/common/acsi” was from a previous life of the VMWare session I was using. Deleting the path and content, with the command “rm –fR /usr/ibm/common/acsi” (run as the root user), resolved the issue :-)
