Hello,Those prerequisites looks fine.The first check to be done is the docker_scan.log file located in '/var/opt/BESClient/LMT/CIT' folder.It will allow to verify if Docker scan has been started or not...at least you should see entries like 'Processing containers'.Do you see any files under following two folders :/var/opt/BESClient/LMT/CIT/docker/images/var/opt/BESClient/LMT/CIT/docker/containersAnyhow, we are happy to help with the investigation process...just please open up the support ticket and upload the whole content of '/var/opt/BESClient/LMT/CIT' folder.
Hi Oktawian,Thanks for valuable inputs. I have already opened a case with IBM. I will upload the logs there.Regards,Atul K. Sharma
Hi Oktawian,Few questions - 1. I checked the folders and observed that below folders have subfolders with images and container ids in it but I did not find any details under these subfolders. Is it expected behaviuor?/var/opt/BESClient/LMT/CIT/docker/images/var/opt/BESClient/LMT/CIT/docker/containers2. While looking at docker_scan.log file I observed that scanning was completed. I noticed that DOCKER_EXEC = /usr/bin/docker while Docker Root Dir: is showing as /var/lib/docker.3. Currently clients are installed on RHEL8 on AWS EC2 instance. While checking the documentation I observed below. Is RHEL8 is not supported?Discovering software in Docker containers - IBM Documentation
Hello Atul,Answering your questions:1.In case of successful discovery '/var/opt/BESClient/LMT/CIT/docker/containers' folder should contain some .swtag or .swidtag files with the corresponding folder structure.2.It looks fine,3.Not sure which ILMT/Fixlet version you are using... Basically RHEL8 is supported starting from License Metric Tool 9.2.21
Hi Oktawian,Thanks for immediate response. I checked License Metric Tool Version. We are using 188.8.131.52What could be probable reasons - '/var/opt/BESClient/LMT/CIT/docker/containers' folder not having .swtag or .swidtag files?Regards,Atul K. Sharma
Hello,Well, there could be many reasons...It's quite possible that some docker command functionality has been altered in RHEL 8 (although on RHEL 8 docker migrated to Podman)The problem is that the docker part of Software Scan has only been tested by us with RHEL 7 (as you could see in Requirements).No tests have been done with subsequent RHEL releases...so, it's kind of grey area.Let me look at this support ticket...perhaps some obvious root cause is just around the corner.However, In the meantime I'd suggest to open an RFE (Aha/Idea) to get docker functionality fully covered by Software Scan in RHEL 8.
Hi Oktawian,Thank you so much for detail explaination.I will open an RFE (Aha/Idea) to get docker functionality fully covered by Software Scan in RHEL 8.Regards,Atul K. Sharma
Hello Atul,Got some good news...I've received a green light to troubleshoot this.My investigation summary is already in the support ticket....
