OBJECTIVE

How to add all the packages which failed the Installation pre-check to ignore RPM file.

 

PROCEDURE

If the error message "Precheck failed. Skipping installation" appears in installer log (/var/log/scalearc-install.log for new installation, /logs/installer.log for upgrade) and new installation or upgrade is suspended.

 

PreChecks-RPMVersion: Failed, Reason: RPM nss-tools-3.19.1-3.el6_6.x86_64.rpm is having higher version than what ScaleArc supports nss-tools-3.18.0-5.3.el6_6.x86_64.rpm.Precheck failed. Skipping installation

 

We can use the precheck.py script to find the list of all the conflicting RPM`s. To add all the RPMs which failed the Pre-check to the ignore_rpm_versions.conf file we can use the following command:

$ sudo python precheck.py "" | grep "higher" | cut -d " " -f 3 >> /opt/idb/bin/ignore_rpm_versions.conf
