Platform Specific Notes

Table 2.2. Platform Specific Notes

HP-UX
  • If you are running HP-UX 11.00 you must install a current HP Quality Pack or else the SysInfo™ Agent will not work. To obtain a current QP from HP, please visit http://www.esca.hp.com/us/.

Linux s390
  • The data reported for class Hardware on s390 is very limited. This is due to the restricted access provided by Linux to applications regarding the system hardware. This is largely due to Linux running on s390 in a virtual machine. Only basic data on storage and network devices is provided.

MacOS X
  • The SysInfo™ GUI requires that you have Apple's X11 package (in older MacOS releases this is called X11 User for OS X) installed prior to installing SysInfo™. These packages are not part of MacOS X 10.1 - 10.2 and must be downloaded from Apple at http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx. On MacOS X 10.3 and later, this package is located on the MacOS X installation disc, but is usually not installed by default.

  • SysInfoPrinter class data is supported on MacOS X 10.2 or later. It is not supported on earlier releases.

VMware ESX
  • SysInfo™ can be installed directly on VMware ESX because it is a Linux based operating system. Install either the SysInfo™ Linux distribution for 32-bit/x86 or 64-bit/x64. To gain access to ESX to install SysInfo™, access the system console and login as user "root". Once logged in, edit /etc/ssh/sshd_config and add the line PermitRootLogin yes. Then run /etc/init.d/sshd reload. You can then remotely log into the ESX server via ssh.

Windows
  • On Windows XP x64 SP1, SysInfo™ will not report much, if any data due to significant bugs in the Windows bundled DLLs. This problem is fixed by applying a current set of Microsoft Security Updates via Microsoft Update, Windows Update, or manually. The exact update which fixes these problems is not known.
