 Ingres 2.5 Disappearing Ingres Libraries on Solaris 8 / UltraSparc 3

Hullo again all,

We have a new Sun server, a SunFire 280R. We install Ingres SPARC SOLARIS
Version II 2.5/0011 (su4.us5/00). Everything works, including the terminal
monitor.

After a few hours we go back, and Ingres is still working, but when we try
to start up the terminal monitor the frame library is missing.

              ld.so.1: itm: fatal: libframe.1.so: open failed: No such file
or directory

Much to our surprise we find that the file $II_SYSTEM/lib/libframe.1.so has
indeed disappeared.

In fact libq, licompat, and libiinterp have also gone.

It has happened twice now. Has anyone seen this before? Is it a new
LicenseIT feature? An UltraSparc 3 funny?

Any help much appreciated. In the meantime I may fiddle with the file
permissions to see whether ingres or root is doing it.

Are you sure that the variable(s) which are pointing to those libraries
are defined? Check out the .profile .
You should look for something like

LD_LIBRARY_PATH
 In C shell,  "setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH
/lib:$II_SYSTEM/ingres/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH ".
  In Bourne shell ,  "LD_LIBRARY_PATH
=/lib:$II_SYSTEM/ingres/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH ; export LD_LIBRARY_PATH ".

Hope this helps.

Armand

We run 2.5/0011 since a few weeks on several machines (no sparc III, just
sparc II) and
had no similar problems.
Good luck with your permission "fiddle".

Are you absolutely sure the files are gone? That error message is
the one we would always get when you do not set the environment
variables properly. E.g., if you set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH and II_SYSTEM
in your .login file, but switch users in terminal window without
doing a full login.

Yes.  After the second install we made a copy of the directory, and putting
the files back fixes things. I just checked and they're still there.

Hm. I found, quite recently, that every time I started Ingres,
the C compiler broke. However, it also broke at other times!
Investigation showed that /opt/SUNWspro/bin/cc was being
truncated to 0 bytes, and this turned out to be because
some{*filter*}had overwritten /bin/logger with a directory
listing; some of the "commands" therein had the form:

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root other 20 Feb 28 16:47 /bin/cc -> /opt/SUNWspro/bin/cc

I should monitor the disappearing files (possibly via cron)
and run something like lastcomm for the appropriate period
for users able to remove this file. Exercising parts of the
install whilst monitoring the files might be useful. Another
thing you might do, for csh users, is to set their savehist
& history to (say) 999 and  nose about in .history files.

Richard.
