Webgui error with omsa 5.4 on debian lenny

Reported by: johan.baarman@… Owned by: bas
Priority: major Milestone:
Version: 5.4.0 Keywords:


Hi, I'm not sure if this error is due to your migration or not. I've installed omsa 5.4 on debian lenny and modified for 64bit use. I'm using it on a PE 2950 and have install java-jre6. When I enter "omconfig about" I get: sh: /bin/rpm: No such file or directory

Product name : Information Not Available. Version : 3.4.0 Copyright : Copyright (C) Dell Inc. 1995-2008. All rights reserved. Company : Dell Inc.

The webgui is not working either, looking in /var/log/dsm_om_connsvc32dIO.log

sh: /bin/rpm: No such file or directory status(-34) r forked [Sep 16 14:03:24 2008] (3631) RunServer:daemon waiting for worker init status [Sep 16 14:03:24 2008] (3632) RunServer:worker process entry [Sep 16 14:03:24 2008] (3632) ModuleAttach?: entry 0 [Sep 16 14:03:24 2008] (3632) ModuleAttach?: starting the startserver thread [Sep 16 14:03:24 2008] (3632) ModuleAttach?: exit [Sep 16 14:03:24 2008] (3632) RunServer?: ModuleAttach? success [Sep 16 14:03:24 2008] (3630) RunServer:parent process EXIT status(0) [Sep 16 14:03:24 2008] (3631) RunServer:daemon waiting for shutdown signal...

Is this due to omsa trying to reach /bin/rpm or something else?

It's not a big issue for me, just thought I'd let you know. Great job otherwise, I love using debian and wouldn't wan't to switch it to SLES for a small issue like this.

Best regards, Johan

Some people have it working and there is a FAQ about this subject.

We at SARA do not use the webinterface software.

When Johan said the web gui is not working, he means it will not start up at all. This is a completely different issue than the one in your FAQ.

I am also having the same problem as him and I am working to debug it and hopefully find a solution. If anyone comes across this and has a suggestion, please email me. I will report back if I find a solution, thanks.

Oh and Johan, the "sh: /bin/rpm: No such file or directory", that's completely normal and appears in the logs on a system that's working perfectly. I think it's safe to say, don't follow that error, it won't get you anywhere. If you have an Etch system up and running check the log and you can verify for yourself.

Ok. Well this is the only debian running on a physical dell, all my etch installations are on virtual machines. I haven't really been debugging it since the server is running fine at the moment but I suspect it has something to do with the java. Sometimes after reboot I omsa starts fine and I can browse it and then all of the sudden, it stops working.

Br, Johan

Right and here is the error for that.

# An unexpected error has been detected by Java Runtime Environment: # # SIGSEGV (0xb) at pc=0xf7d214f9, pid=7918, tid=3969493904 # # Java VM: Java HotSpot?(TM) Client VM (1.6.0-b105 mixed mode) # Problematic frame: # C [] strcmp+0x11 #

I believe OMSA has it's own Java built in.

I made a little progress. I now have about 5 threads of dsm_om_connsvc running, where as it used to only load once BUT the page is not on port 1311. :(

I got this far by replacing the Java is uses.

You need to install sun-java6 first.

Then after that, go to /opt/dell/srvadmin and rename jre to jre.old

Then, still in that directory, do an ln -s /usr/lib/jvm/ia32-java-6-sun/jre

Then you should have lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 32 2008-10-15 16:51 jre -> /usr/lib/jvm/ia32-java-6-sun/jre

Which will get it started but something else needs fixing.... I'll report back when I find more...

Any chance of fixing this?

I'd really like to use the webui and i wish i could tell when i broke. I got it working with lenny/amd64 some 8 weeks ago.

I've tried running it with sun-java6 and all process crashed, with sun-java6-32bit the process stays alive but i have no webinterface.

Kind regards, Michael.

Haven't even touched it again, sorry bro. Company is going out of business and it's time to look for a new job! I can tell you though, that is you have a Perc 4 and the omreport storage controller doesn't work, it's the newer kernel that's doing that. You can follow a thread here.

When I get around to the webui, i'll let you know. Hopefully someone smarter than me will get to it first. :)

Thanks man,

no problem with the SAS controller… Just the ui thingy.

Good look to you, this should have priority :)

hi all,

i'm troubleshooting installation omsa 5.4 from sara repo's on ubuntu server64 v8.10. Follow guide help me.

I'm notice the hint on this page to install of ia32 java packages from ubuntu it doesnt help me.

I find out, i must three things to works omsa for me:

  1. change the /etc/init.d/dsm_om_connsvc:


echo -n $"Starting ${PROGRAM_NAME}: " START_DAEMON ${PROGRAM_DAEMON} run


echo -n $"Starting ${PROGRAM_NAME}: " START_DAEMON ${PROGRAM_DAEMON} -clrun &

  1. link the jre libs from omsa install dir with

# ldconfig /opt/dell/srvadmin/jre/lib/i386/server/ (Maybe fixed this, in any

  1. change the /etc/init.d/dataeng

in the to of the script i insert follow things:

if [ ! -d /var/lock/subsys ]; then

mkdir /var/lock/subsys

Hi all,

Exactly the same problem here. Dell M600, Lenny amd64, dellomsa_5.4.0-1_amd64.deb from sara.

IWS does'nt work (or works at least on boot during few seconds or few requests).

I have also a 2970 and a 6950 on etch amd64 with dellomsa 5.2.0-2 from sara (which is no longuer available on ftp site ?) and IWS works on both like a charm.

But, like Johan said, it's not a big issue. It's just annoying when I have to manage different servers with different tools.

There is a new version 5.5.0-3 that has fix for lenny to enable the webserver.
