linux systems management homepage install problem

I get the following error/warnings when installing the hpsmh.

The rpm does not appear to create the hpsmh user or use root as I have installed using 'su'

Any help?

Re: linux systems management homepage install problem

Hi Ken,
I get same error installing the hpsmh
on RedHat Enterprise Linux AS release 3.
The problem refer to invalid user.
Check this user in the /etc/passwd file.
If it's not present, you must create the user hpsmh as following:
hpsmh:x:79:79::/hpsmh:/sbin/nologin
