Solaris Management Console 2.1 in Solaris 10 x86 nv-b40 and nv-b42.....

I have been Solaris 10 x86 on my Intel machines and never had any problem with SMC. However, things seems to have changed since
nv-b40 release. SMC out-of-the-box does not work even the first time. I get a message like Server is not running, Toolbox is not available. I tried to start the server manually using the command
/etc/init.d/init.wbem start
and I got the message
svccfg:Pattern 'application/swcwbem' doesn't match any instances or services.
I have reinstalled nv-b38 and SMC works fine. Does any one know what has changed between nv-b38 and nv-b40 releases which caused SMC not to work out-of-the-box? Also, if any one has encountered this problem and got a fix for it, could you please post it here? Thanks a bunch in advance.

did you enable tcp listening?
svccfg -s wbem setprop options/tcp_listen=true
svcadm refresh wbem
svcadm restart wbem

  • Installing Solaris Management Console

    I'm trying to get Solaris Management Console working on my Solaris 9 host. I've installed all the SMC packages:
    SUNWmc
    SUNWmcc
    SUNWmccom
    SUNWmcdev
    SUNWmcex
    SUNWwbmc
    Unfortunately, I found out that Solaris Management Console also requires a SUNWCprog cluster install (Developer install) and this host was built last year with the SUNWCuser (End user) install.
    Does anybody know what additional pkgs I need to install to get Solaris Management Console to work? I don't have the option of rebuilding the machine and I don't want to install every single pkg in the developer install. It's a waste of space.

    I've resolved this issue. On Solaris 9 x86, the default Java installation resides in /usr/j2se. The JavaHelp packages required by SMC install their files to this directory. The Java 5.0 SE installation instructions advise you to redirect the /usr/j2se link to /usr/jdk/jdk1.5.0 if you want Java 5.0 to be your default Java installation. If you do this, you will lose the JavaHelp files and SMC will break.
    I resolved this issue by:
    1) removing the JavaHelp packages (SUNWjhdem, SUNWjhdev, SUNWjhdoc, SUNWjhrt)
    2) deleting the /usr/j2se directory
    3) linking /usr/j2se to /usr/jdk/jdk1.50
    4) reinstalling the JavaHelp packages (available on disc 2 of the installation set)
    SMC now starts and runs normally. It uses the new Ocean laf which I think is much more attractive than Metal. Good work, Sun!

  • Solaris 9, Solaris Management Console ISSUE

    Solaris 9, Solaris Management Console ISSUE
    I have Solaris 9 installed and I am unable to use the Solaris Management console.
    I have managed to start it:
    /etc/init.d/init.wbem start
    /etc/init.d/init.wbem status -> shows it's running
    But if I try browser with the link http:// host:898, I have got the following error:
    "A web version of the Solaris Management Console is not available at this time."
    any Idea why?

    Are you running Trusted Extensions? What patch cluster are you on? What toolbox are you opening?

  • Solaris Management Console hanging

    Did anyone have a similar problem?
    We are running Solaris Management Console 2.1 on Solaris 10 update 3
    It was working fine until recently.
    Now, it hangs forever.
    We have no problem in launching it, loging to using our normal account, and switching to sysadmin role.
    However, it hangs forever every time we try to do some action with the following error message showing on the terminal screen:
    Exception in thread "Thread-21" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/sun/admin/cis/common/ShowCommands
            at com.sun.admin.usermgr.client.users.UserContent$MyListFetch.listAll(UserContent.java:1133)
            at com.sun.admin.cis.common.ListFetch.run(ListFetch.java:284)I am not an expert in Java, but the above message seems to indicate a Sun JRE classpath problem. The symptom in the X-Windows session is always the same: hangs forever when trying to browse users to perform necessary operations, such as adding, deleting, changing groups, and so on.
    We have the following JDK installed

    I have received the following reply from Sun tech support:
    Hello again Shen,
    After I got your email I went back through your files and did an internal search on the breaking of classpath and java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError error.  I found a case that had similar error messages and the root cause was determined to be the order of the patch installation.
    Here is a clip from that case;
    ===
    The patch install order for 121308-12 and 119313-19 can have a negative affect on SMC.
    Please have the customer try the following workaround:
    patchrm 121308-12 and 119313-19
    In this order, patchadd 119313-19 and then patchadd 121308-12
    ===
    Your netinfo files show that you are only up to 119313-16 on your wbem patch. The latest patch is;
    119313-19
    SunOS 5.10: WBEM Patch
    Date:  Mar/27/2008
    You may find that updating to this patch will make the edit to the /usr/sadm/lib/smc/bin/smc file unnecessary.
    Since your original problems have been resolved, I will go ahead and close the case.  You may want to consider updating to the latest WBEM patch on your next update cycle.
    Thanks,
    Dave
    I guess patch 119313-19 solves the problem.
    I have launched SMC on a few servers that I haven't changed /usr/sadm/lib/smc/bin/smc file.
    SMC didn't hang.
    So, I checked for patch level and they all have patch 119313-19 installed.

  • I have forgot to install Solaris Management Console

    Hi all,
    I have just installed Solaris 10, and I have forgot to install SMC, and I really don't know how I can install it.
    So, how I can install the solaris management console ?
    Thanks
    Willits

    I beleive the following packages are needed to run the SMC.
    SUNWmc
    SUNWmcc
    SUNWmccom
    SUNWmcdev
    SUNWmcex
    SUNWwbmc
    SUNWmga
    To see if thet are installed on your system type
    pkginfo -i | grep "Solaris Management Console"
    pkginfo -i | grep "Solaris Management Applications"
    If you forgot to install this component, I doubt you will see any of these.
    To install them on your system, run...
    pkgadd SUNWmc
    pkgadd SUNWmcc
    pkgadd SUNWmccom
    pkgadd SUNWmcdev
    pkgadd SUNWmcex
    pkgadd SUNWwbmc
    pkgadd SUNWmga
    Hope this helps.

  • Solaris Management Console (SMC) - Solaris 9 x86

    I�ve just installed Solaris 9 (x86) version. I�m unable to install Solaris Management console.
    I was using below command to add listed patches:
    pkgadd -d . SUNWpmgr SUNWrmui SUNWlvmr SUNWlvma SUNWlvmg
    I�m unable to find these packages on cd1. Somehow they�re on cd2. These cd�s are direct extract from Sun�s web site.
    Anyway when I run the pkgadd command I�m getting the following error:
    �No package associated with (SUNWpmgr)�
    When I look into the SUNWpmgr, there are 2 files (pkgmap., pkginfo.) and 3 dir (install, archive, reloc)
    Same with other packages
    Please help me.

    I was able to correct this problem on my server
    The .server file is the smc java keystore that contains
    the private/public key pair for SSL
    You can create this file by executing
    cd /usr/sadm/lib/smc/bin
    certtool -genkey
    Once the keys are generated execute
    /etc/init.d/init.wbem stop
    /etc/init.d/init.wbem start
    if your smpatch no longer works

  • Solaris Management Console and X86 Disk

    Greetings,
    I am trying to use the Solaris Management Console to manage the 2 disks I have in my Intel PC. Both disk are allocated 100% to Solaris 10 and were formatted and partitioned by the installation program.
    Why is it that when I use the Management Console it tells me that there is no Solaris FDISK partition and that I cannot manage the disk until I put a Solaris FDISK partition on them? It doesn't seem like the tool is all that useful if it cannot use the default format put on the disk by the install program.
    On related note, why is it that auto layout during install creates partitions that are barely large enough to hold the OS? From what I can see it puts the bulk of the disk space into home for user home directories but this creates a problem when trying to install additional SW such as StarOffice.
    Cheers
    TC

    Thanks for your help. I updated my root password from 4 charcters to 4charcters + 4 numerals , still SMC will not let me in. I updated 2 machines and both allow me to login as root (GUI) but SMC wants to confirm the password and will not let me in.
    I have reinstalled (initialized rather than upgrade) Solaris 10 on one machine (Ultra60) , that machine now works fine. It allows me to login as root(GUI) ans the SMC accepts my root password
    The machines are an Ultra10 and an Ultra60.
    I choose to upgrade rather than a new install because of to much info to rebuild.

  • SMC - Solaris Management Console in whole root zone

    Hi,
    Is it possible to run smc in whole root zone? Is there a howto for this?
    I have created a whole root zone in my x86 and sparc systems but I can't seem to manage the zones through smc (Adding users, share disks and etc).
    I was able to manage my sparse zones with smc but for some reason smc won't even start in whole root zone. The whole root zone does not seem to have smcserver and bunch of other directories relating to smc.

  • Root password fails on auth to Solaris Management Console Server

    I've setup Solaris 10 x86 on a VA linux 1220 server, all is good so far except when I try to create additional users. I am logged in as root, and the root password logs in to the CDE, but fails on authentication to Solaris Management Console Server when I try to use any of the management apps like computers and networks or Users. So I'm stalled at the point where I should be configuring the system. I have been very careful about typing in the password exactly as I use it in the login screen, but it never works in the System Management tools for This Computer. The password I'm using is 26 characters long, is it too long? Or is there a step I'm missing?
    Thanks,
    Brian

    One of my famous guesses, but unless you changed the default password algorithm the maximum length of your password is 8 characters, when logging in on the console or desktop, anything typed after those eight characters will be ignored (unless this behaviour changed very recently).
    Its possibly that SMC, and its server component WBEM does not ignore the extra characters, which could cause this behavior.
    What happens if you try and login to SMC with the root user and only the first eight characters of your password?
    Btw, if this was the problem i think there is a way to change the default crypto algorithm to something that supports more characters.

  • Solaris Managment console in Java desktop release 3

    Hi Experts,
    I have recently installed Solaris 10/8 on a x86 based system.When I try to login to the server through CDE it gives a message "CDE has been deprecated and will be removed in future release of Solaris. Please move to the Java Desktop System (aka JDS)"
    If I login using JDS I am unable to see Solaris Managment console. Is there any new console that is been used in the JDS or we have to do the managment manually?
    Revert back if you have any questions.
    Regards,
    Sunil.

    How I've always done it is open up a shell and just type SMC that always seems to work for me, even in the days when I was using cde I would do the same.
    I guess, that for me, an X session was just a way to have a lot of terminal windows open, but that's just me :)

    Try search the WEB for your display adapter drivers. However, most of new especially intergated graphics are still not supported.
    You may try to get it working with xsun, run kdmconfig and specify as display adapter VGA or Super VGA. I know that in some cases it helps.
    As well do the same with Xorg and run /usr/X11/bin/xorgcfg, try to find somekind of generic VGA in drivers that are listed there.
    As I know, smc runs only in graphical mode.
    I saved the settings and pressed F2 for testing. I could see the displayDid you see buttons on that display (something like "yes", "no")?
    xsun is very hard to set with most of display adapters and monitors, sometimes it shows only part of the screen, so you might not to see these buttons. However if you see them, press "yes" (or something like that, I dont exactly remember). Then reboot and your computer should start the GUI.
