Hi Phani,

Re: unable to strart cmiserver

Now you know , what the problem ?

file permission problem

the system umask settings can impact the start-up behavior of the CIMserver. When it starts, the CIMserver renames the cimserver_current.conf file as cimserver_current.conf.bak file, and then copies the contents of cimserver_planned.conf file into the cimserver_current.conf file. This is done by creating the cimserver_current.conf file. The file permissions of the cimserver_current.conf file depend on the umask settings

so work around fix to change file permisison

Hope this gives better understand

Re: unable to strart cmiserver

>-rw------- 1 root root 1099 Jun 9 14:58 cimserver_current.conf<<

cd /var/opt/wbem
chmod 644 cimserver_current.conf
/sbin/init.d/cim_server start

After following above steps i am able to start the process but when i try shutdown and start service receiving the following error

#/sbin/init.d/cim_server start

"PGS10033: The CIM Server is not started: PGS00211: File /var/opt/wbem/cimserver_current.conf cannot be read."

file permissions are getting automatically changed
-rw------- 1 root root 1099 Nov 10 12:19 cimserver_current.conf

i tried couple of time i received same error.

thanks,
Phani Kumar

Re: unable to strart cmiserver

If the umask settings is set to 077 or higher, then the cimserver_current.conf is created with following permissions:

-rw------- 1 root root 1099 Sep 14 16:55 cimserver_current.conf

With WBEM A.02.07 version, the cimservermain process which runs as a normal cimsrvr user fails to read this cimserver_current.conf file. As a result, the CIMserver fails to start and the following error message is displayed:

PGS10033: THE CIM SERVER IS NOT STARTED: PGS00211:FILE

/var/opt/wbem/cimserver_current.conf CANNOT BE READ"
