HP-UX B5736DA HA Monitors Issue
Monitors is a recommended ISU in the Enterprise and MC Oes for
11.31, but it is NOT part of the Foundation OE (FOE) or TCOE.
However, after installing FOE or TCOE from a depot containing
multiple OEs, the bundle tag B5736DA shows up in the swlist output,
but only the EMS-MIBMon product is loaded.
product from B5736DA is installed because there is a dependency
set on this product from the EventMonitoring bundle, which is
incorporated into the SysMgmtMin bundle for all OEs. Since SysMgmtMin
bundle sets the is_reference attribute to "false", whenever any
product or fileset in the B5736DA bundle gets installed, the bundle
tag gets installed too, even though the whole product is not installed.
of the partial product being installed to satisfy the dependency
has always been the case, but due to the restructuring of the
OE's the bundle tag now appears.
is not entitled to the full B5736DA for the Foundation and Technical
Computing OEs and the product will not work. But, if a customer
is audited for licenses, it will appear they have a product they
are not entitled to.
In the next 11.31 quarterly release, the is_reference attribute
on the SysMgmtMin bundle will be set to TRUE. This will prevent
the bundle tag from appearing.
