/etc/opt/hp is having 555,

By mistake my manager has changed this value to 755 earlier, once when i found lots of pid's related to cimservermain, i could sense the problem with wbem

Still i am not able to resolve, the pid's are growing constantly.

 

/var/adm/syslog/syslog.log shows

 

cimserver[17908]: PGS10033: The CIM Server is not started: PGS00415: SSL exception: PGS09207: Cannot get server certificate

 

every 30 seconds


I referred this link as well
http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/System-Administration/CIM-Server-Connection-Error/td-p/4725986
but i am not able to access itrc.hp.com

Any clues on howto proceed.

Re: cimserver: The CIM Server is not started SSL exception: Cannot get server certificate

Please run this command:

# ll -d / /etc /etc/opt /etc/opt/hp /etc/opt/hp/sslshare

 The output should look similar to this:

drwxr-xr-x  21 root       root          8192 Nov  6 14:13 /
dr-xr-xr-x  33 bin        bin           8192 Jan 22 12:15 /etc
dr-xr-xr-x  24 bin        bin           8192 Feb 16  2010 /etc/opt
dr-xr-xr-x   3 bin        bin             96 Jul 21  2008 /etc/opt/hp
dr-xr-xr-x   2 bin        bin             96 Jul 21  2008 /etc/opt/hp/sslshare

  If the directory ownerships or permissions are different, fix them.

 

Then restart the WBEM server as indicated in the error messages you posted:

# cimserver -s
# cimserver
