This article applies to BoKS Manager 6.7.0 - 6.7.1.

Description

The following issues have been corrected in the hotfix HFBM-0103,
available for download from the HelpSystems Community Portal:

7598 - boks_upgrade fails to unpack its own ssh & scp

boks_upgrade could fail to decompress the platform-specific tar
files in the openssh package.

boks_upgrade could fail to decompress the sshd for target when
both gunzip and uncompress were missing on the target machine
(Server Agent to be upgraded).

8783 - boks_upgrade is unable to upgrade 6.5.4 to 6.7 on Solaris 11

It is not possible to upgrade from BoKS 6.5.4 to 6.7 on Solaris 11.

8797 - Semantic bug in boks_upgrade_upgrade if repeated

If after a successful upgrade you accidentally repeat the
"boks_upgrade upgrade" command, shell script syntax errors are
encountered.

8801 - boks_upgrade setup may uncompress sshcore.tar.Z

If neither of the commands uncompress nor gunzip is found on
a particular remote Server Agent, the sshd must be decompressed

on the Master before it is transmitted to the Server Agent.

In this situation if the uncompress is missing on the Master
gunzip is erroneously called without the -c option.

This will later cause a problem when connecting to another Server

Agent running on the same platform and where neither uncompress

nor gunzip are available: boks_upgrade setup will fail for that host.



Resolution / Workaround

7598 - boks_upgrade fails to unpack its own ssh & scp

Two scripts in $BOKS_lib - boks_upgrade_func.sh and
boks_upgrade_setup.sh have been updated to check for availability
of the de-compress command using the which command. The
- boks_upgrade_setup script to work properly for Server Agents

that lack uncompress and gunzip.
- boks_upgrade_func to be able to uncompress and extract the
upgrade_openssh/sshcore.tar.Z package locally.

8783 - boks_upgrade is unable to upgrade 6.5.4 to 6.7 on Solaris 11

boks_upgrade_upgrade has been changed to call
package_info files -t type
with the static type "boksm" instead of $PKG_TYPE (retrieved from
Server Agent) to support upgrade to/from MRC/C type packages both

ways.

8797 - Semantic bug in boks_upgrade_upgrade if repeated

A check has been added to boks_upgrade_upgrade to make sure shell
variable BOKS_CLIENT_VERSION has been defined by the call to
"eval `run_remote_program "$host" "upgrade_ssh_start
version"`. If not, a message is printed and the next host in the
loop is tried.

8801 - boks_upgrade setup may uncompress sshcore.tar.Z

The -c flag is now passed to gunzip in this situation.
