WBEMServices swinstall fails on 11i V3. Cimserver not running

I was upgrading WBEMServices to A.02.09.02. The install check passed but the install had errors.

NOTE: Stopping cimserver daemon
ERROR: Failed to stop cimserver
ERROR: The "configure" script for "WBEMServices.WBEM-CORE" failed
(exit code "1"). The script location was
"/var/adm/sw/products/WBEMServices/WBEM-CORE/configure".
* This script had errors and the execution of this fileset
cannot proceed until the problem is fixed. Check the above
output from the script for further details.

* Summary of Execution Phase:
ERROR: Installed WBEMServices.WBEM-CORE,l=/,r=A.02.09
ERROR: 1 of 15 filesets had Errors.
* 14 of 15 filesets were Skipped.
ERROR: The Execution Phase had errors. See the above output for
details.


* Configured WBEMServices.WBEM-MX,l=/,r=A.02.09
* Configured WBEMServices.WBEM-MAN,l=/,r=A.02.09
* Configured WBEMServices.WBEM-CORE-COM,l=/,r=A.02.09
* Installed WBEMServices.WBEM-CORE,l=/,r=A.02.09
* Configured WBEMServices.WBEM-TOOLS,l=/,r=A.02.09
* The software "WBEMServices.WBEM-CORE,l=/,r=A.02.09" is not in
the correct state (AVAILABLE, INSTALLED, or CONFIGURED). You
will need to recopy, reinstall or configure this software

The cimserverd is not running and I cannot start it. I have tried to swremove WBEMServices and reinstall but I get the same error. I also tried swconfig with the same result. It is not finishing the configure script. Any ideas?

>The cimserverd is not running and I cannot start it.

Have you looked at this script to see what it's checking?
/var/adm/sw/products/WBEMServices/WBEM-CORE/configure

If it isn't running, why does it think it can't stop it? Did you check for cimserver and cimserverd?

Have you looked at the log?

Here is the install log.

I've looked at the configure file. I'm not a programmer but it looks like it checks to see if cimserver is running so it can stop it. The problem is it is not running so the script errors out.

Did it ever start properly?

# cat /etc/rc.log | grep CIM
Start CIM cimserver subsystem
CIM cimserver started
# ps -ef | grep cimserver

Re: WBEMServices swinstall fails on 11i V3. Cimserver not running

The problem was that the install process stops the cimserver then checks to make sure it is stopped. We are running a piece of software called SCOM. SCOM has its own cimserver.

root 22512 1 0 Mar 17 ? 24:24 /opt/microsoft/scx/bin/scxcimprovagt 0 9 12 root SCXCoreProviderModule

Once we stopped SCOM the install completed successfully.
