purescale 11.1.3.3 support for RHEL 7.5

  • 1.  purescale 11.1.3.3 support for RHEL 7.5

    Posted 30 days ago

    Hi,

    I am puzzled by the time I spend and loose trying to install DB2 PureScale on a RHEL 7.x VMWARE.

    The install (on psnode2 only for now) of 11.1.3.3 CODE ONLY simply fails. (db2prereqchecks is successfull)

    [root@psnode2 tmp]# cat /etc/redhat-release
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.5 (Maipo)

    Does someone have any clue ???

    Thanks, JMB

     

    1) db2_install, choose SERVER, answer YES to install pureScale feature.

    I can ping psnode2 and psnode2.localdomain, this is the local host.

    Hi,

    For 1) Can you run <install_dir>/instance/native/install/compileGPL > /tmp/compileGPL.log 2>&1 as root on psnode2?

    For 2) Will you be able to attach /tmp/db2setup.106116.trc? 

     

    Thanks

    Hello,

    Please find attached /tmp/db2setup.106116.trc and .log files, and compileGPL.log.

    Thanks,

    Hello,

    Is there any news about this issue ? Is it or will it be fixed with a new 11.1..4.4 build ?

    Thanks & Best regards,

    JMB

    Hi,

    Apologies for the delay.

    I asked our purescale experts in the lab, and V11.1.3.3 purescale is NOT supported on RHEL7.5.


    Also, looking at compileGPL.log, Spectrum Scale failed to compile so I am assuming the Spectrum Scale version 4.1.1.17 that comes with Db2 V11.1.3.3 is not supported on RHEL7.5 either.

    However, please double check the Spectrum Scale doc on this. 

    Regarding the second issue, the installer did a "ping -c1 psnode2.localdomain" from "psnode2" and that failed as well. You may need to refer to the following docs on how to setup /etc/hosts. 

    https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/en/SSEPGG_11.1.0/com.ibm.db2.luw.qb.server.doc/doc/t0056052.html

     

     Lastly, regarding "Is it or will it be fixed with a new 11.1..4.4 build ?"
    By "it" do you mean Purescale support on RHEL7.5? If yes, I talked to our purescale experts about this and Purescale on RHEL7.5 will definitely be supported in future V11 fixpacks but we do not know whether it will be on V11.1.4.4. 

     

    Thanks

    Hi,

    When reading your answer, IBM is definitively not agile. Sounds like the Windows 10 support, that came for DB2 Client many month after it was out when Oracle did already support this version.

    Well, that said, I have only RHEL 7.5 available, and I cannot demonstrate pureScale at customers. 11.1.4.4 is planned for November, I heard, and too bad if you cannot make it

    Best regards, JMB

    Wanted to give you a bit of an update  @jmblaise , that the testing and development work to support pS in RHEL 7.5 is continuing.  The bad news is that due to the OS change it is not trivial and requires updates to multiple components of the software stack.  The good news is that those are in progress and hopefully we'll have some better news for you in the not-too-distant future.

    Hi Kelly,

    Thanks for the update. I hope and cross my fingers for that for FP4 to support RHEL 7.5 (I don't know what is your metric when writing 'not-too-distant-future', but my metric is "a few months").

    Best regards, JMB

    A few pieces have to fall into place but yes, I have a similar timeframe in mind.
