HP SIM Agent 7.20 installation failed on ESX 2.5.1

Installation failed on hpsmh-2.0.0-103.vmware.i386.rpm

Log file says
Connected to 127.0.0.1:2301....
...
sent /proxy/reconnect...counter=5, status=0
(98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address _._._._:2381
no listening sockets available, shutting down

What could it be?

Try this:

netstat -vatp | egrep '2301|2381'

this will show you what program is listening on these ports.

looks like the hpsmh service or some other service is already running on that system (may be vmware maintenance service).

try this: check the output of 'netstat -aptn' and look whether there is any service listening on port 2381 (generally it looks like xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:2381) if it is listed then it will also give the program which is holding that port.

let us know the result then we will try to solve the problem.

Hope this helps,

[root@... /]# netstat -vatp | egrep '2301|2381'
tcp 0 0 localhost.localdom:2381 *:* LISTEN 22600/hpsmhd
tcp 0 0 ...:2381 *:* LISTEN 22600/hpsmhd
tcp 0 0 localhost.localdom:2301 *:* LISTEN 22600/hpsmhd
tcp 0 0 ...:2301 *:* LISTEN 22600/hpsmhd

HPSMHD is already in memory, but i can't find it on disk. How should I unload this module? I don't want to crash the system.

you can stop the service by calling '/etc/init.d/hpshmd stop'

if this does not kill and the process id 22600 still exists(check ps -ax|grep hpsmhd) then the kill the individual process id's by 'kill -TERM pid'

Hope this helps,

After I killed process hpsmpd, installation was done without errors.

Thanks again.
