SystemsMonitorv2.2>install problems with systems information agent
Environment: AIX 4.1.3 and SystemsMonitor 2.2 SIA smux peer
Problem: The customer is having some problems installing
the Systems Information Agent on AIX 4.1.3. He is getting
an error from installp stating that there are requsite
failures; however, the failure section showed nothing under
the missing prerequsites. In other words the in the missing
requsites screen there was nothing.
Solution: This is a problem with SystemMonitor missing some
of the AIX 3.2.5 comaptibility libraries.
I therefore looked at the /usr/lpp/smsia/README.sysinfod
to see what the prequsites are. Here is the file in its

The information contained in this file consists of hints for using
Systems Monitor for AIX (SIA), help with functions that may not be apparent,
and last minute updates to the existing documentation. Review this file
when Systems Monitor for AIX (SIA) is installed or when updates are applied.
1. READ THIS FIRST
This is the first edition (September 1995) of the V2R2 README document.
This README is in the /usr/lpp/smsia directory after installation.
HOW TO USE YOUR DOCUMENTATION
1. Read the Systems Monitor for AIX (SIA) User's Guide (SC31-8173) for
configuration and system information on the product.
2. The Systems Monitor for AIX (SIA) MIB, is available in SMI format in
MIGRATION OF CONFIGIRATION FILES FOR SYSTEMS MONITOR/6000 VERSION 1 to
SYSTEMS MONITOR FOR AIX VERSION 2
Configuration files for Systems Monitor/6000 Version 1 can be converted to the
Systems Monitor for AIX Version 2 format with the script: siaConvertCfg in
the directory: /usr/lpp/smsia/original. The script can be run to convert all
files in a directory or just a single file. The output of the conversion is p
in the directory /var/adm/smv2/sia/config.
usage : siaConvertCfg file-name/directory-name
3. The /etc/snmpd.conf file is updated with the following configuration line:
"snmpd maxpacket=16000 smuxtimeout=60 \# Systems Monitor for AIX"
4. Prerequisites on AIX 4.1:
On AIX 4.1, the following must be installed before the System Information
Agent can be installed:
bos.rte v=4 r=1 o>1
bos.net.tcp.client v=4 r=1
bos.compat.lan v=4 r=1
xlC.rte v=3 r=1
This last part defines the prerequsites. I therefore installed
the comaptibility libraries, xlC.rte, and then the SIA.
This worked fine for the customer.
