Red Hat Linux AS 4.0
I receive an error when attempting to run a Security Patches Not Applied check on a Red Hat AS 4.0 computer.
Error: 'Unable to stat file ./vsau/data/datafiles/patches.Linux.redhat.4.dat'
I can't run a particular VM security check on my Red Hat Linux computer.
The 'unable to stat' part of the message indicates that the
patches.Linux.redhat.4.dat file is not there, is corrupt, or is in some other way unusable. Red Hat Linux AS 4.0 was not released until after the initial release of the VigilEnt Security Agent for Unix 5.0 and therefore was not certified until after the 5.0 Security Agent release.
You can retrieve the updated
patches.Linux.redhat.4.dat file using the AutoSync Wizard in the Vulnerability Manager console. See the Vulnerability Manager User Guide for more information about using the AutoSync function.
Alternatively, you can copy the Red Hat Linux AS 3.0 files below from their default locations and rename them as
Note, however, that AutoSync is the recommended method for obtaining the patch file, as the AutoSynced file has the most up-to-date security patch information.
