If you don't have a required operating system patch, you will get a warning message during installation. However, you might have a patch that supercedes the required patch. If that's the case, you can download an updated file from your product download page, or you can update it yourself.


By default, the file is in the C:\Program Files\NetIQ\UNIX Agent Manager\deploy on the computer where UNIX Agent Manager is installed.


To update the file, add the new patch to the beginning of the applicable line. For example, on HP-UX 11i, if you installed patch PHKL_45827 which superceded PHKL_41709, you would edit the section of the file that lists the required HP 11i patches so that it looks like this:


#Required HPUX Packages for running the VigilEntAgent on 11.11 - See ENG309500

HPUX_11_11=`cat <<HERE




patch,PHKL_45827; PHKL_41709;PHKL_41587;PHKL_41409;PHKL_34805
