Introduction:

If we try to install PIM12.8SP1 using RO88376 or later including PAMSC r14 on Solaris11.3 with Japanese LANG, we will see some problems.

1) seos.ini file is not correct.

2) sub.key and sub.pem files are not created.

 

Question:

Can we install PIM 12.8SP1 on Solaris11.3 or later with Japanese LANG?

Environment:
Solaris11.3 with Japanese LANG(ja_JP.eucJP,ja_JP.PCK,ja_JP.UTF-8)
Answer:

Yes, it is possible.

However, we must use /bin/bash to run install_base script.

In Solaris11.3:

"/bin/sh" is linked as follows.

#ls -la /bin/sh

lrwxrwxrwx   1 <owner>     <group>          <date&time> /bin/sh -> sparcv9/ksh93

The "sparcv9/ksh93" seems not to be able to recognize Japanese characters.

So $SEOSDIR/seos.ini is not created correctly and sub.key and sub.pem files in $SEOSDIR/data/crypto are not created.

So please link /bin/bash instead of sparcv9/ksh93 like this.

#rm /bin/sh

#ln -s /bin/bash /bin/sh

#ls -la /bin/sh

lrwxrwxrwx   1 <owner>     <group>          <date&time> /bin/sh -> /bin/bash

After that, we can install PIM12.8SP1 using RO88376 on Solaris11.3 Japanese LANG.

Of course, we can return it to original link after installing.

 

 

 

Additional Information:

$SEOSDIR is PIM installation directory.

The default path is /opt/CA/AccessControl.
