Regarding NSM and Red Hat Linux

Dear experts,

 

I want to know that is it possible to install NSM 2008.2R2 on RHEL AS 4 update 5 (32bit)  or RHEL ES 5 update 1. In the release notes it is mentioned the following

 

RHEL 32-bit ES/AS 4.0-Update 6 or 32-bit ES/AS 5.0-Update 2 (Minimal
and Full Install)

 

So what I have have is update 5 for RHEL AS 4.0 and Update 1 for RHEL ES 5.0

 

is it a MUST to have the same UPDATE of linux . Kindly please confirm it.

 

 Thanks in advance

Re: Regarding NSM and Red Hat Linux

The reason we mention the Update is because that is the release QA has used to verify & execute all their tests.

 

Even using 5.0 Update 1, it will work for sure.

 

Thanks,

Chandra

Re: Regarding NSM and Red Hat Linux

Thank you very much CN for your fast answer,

 

I will give a hit tomorrow for this.

 

One more thing regarding the IDP, I am very disapointed to see that IDP version 5.0 does not support FAILOVER (standalone or 3rd party) so this is forcing me to go for IDP version 4.1R3(latest release).

 

I have pair of IDP 250 to deploy inline in failover

 

also for further confirmation

 

I will have 

 

1) RHEL AS 5.0 update 1 (without any Red hat network support)

2) NSM 2008.2R2

3) NSM will manage IDP version 4.1R3(latest relase for IDP 250). (Release 4.2 is only for IDP 8200)

 

Can u see any problem in above one 

 

Thanks and awaiting your fast response

Re: Regarding NSM and Red Hat Linux

The below looks like a good start. However, we know of a few issues with IDP release 4.1r3. I would suggest using the IDP patch q1 that was built on 4.1r3.

 

https://download.juniper.net/software/idp/sensor_4_1q1.sh.bz2 

 

We will be having 4.1r4 coming out in a couple of days & I suggest upgrading to that release.

 

Thanks,

Chandra

Re: Regarding NSM and Red Hat Linux

Thanks for pointing out in this direction

 

Is this the patch only or it is a complete version 4.1R3 + the patch (Q1).

 

I am little bit confuse now becasue at the download page of IDP i am not seeing the link which you provided to me

 

Can you pleas elaborate little bit more in this regards (or pointing to the release notes regarding this patch)

 

Thanks in advance

Re: Regarding NSM and Red Hat Linux

This is a patch based on 4.1r3 which means its a complete package. Not sure which release you have on your system, but if you are trying to reimage your IDP 250, you can do it with the ISO image on our support site and then install this patch on top of it.

 

With this patch, primarily, there were issues addressed related to Link flapping with bypass enabled and failures related to SKYPE, SIP and RSH traffic.

 

Thanks,

Chandra

Re: Regarding NSM and Red Hat Linux

Now it is becoming very interesting now

 

First of all my version is  Version: 4.1.112010 (from the ACM page), can u tell me which version actually this is, I mean which release 4.1R1, 4.1R2 or 4.1R3

 

Second and the most important thing is that there is no ISO Image file for version 4.1r3(attache image is showing the download page for Juniper IDP).

 

what does SH filname means, is that means the upgrade file or we is it a complete image so I can do re-image with this file as well

 

Thanks in advance

 

Newbie in JUNIPER IDP : )

Re: Regarding NSM and Red Hat Linux

Hi Nasim,

to answer your questions:

 

1. 4.1.112010 correstpond to 4.1r2a, the build matrix is published in this KB article:

    http://kb.juniper.net/KB13909

 

2. ISO image hasnot been released for all the IDP versions, latest available is idp-4.1r2-RC4-sensor.iso

   With the ISO image you can re-image the box and then use the .sh installer to upgrade the IDP software

 

3. .sh is just the upgrade package that must be run to upgrade the IDP software running on the box.

 

Check the upgrade instructions in the Installer Guide:

http://www.juniper.net/techpubs/software/management/idp/idp41/IDP_4_1_Install_Guide.pdf

 

 

 

Ciao! :smileyhappy:

Daniele
