HP-UX (PA-RISQ and IA64)
Solaris Zones (SPARC and x86)
Analysis Center
Oracle Instant Client
Bias Time


AIX UNIX Agents experiencing issues with the Bias Time calculations.
Nqmdaemon script start/stop issues in Solaris zones.
HP-UX Logical disk enumeration.
Missing perl modules for UnixAsciiLog.
NetiqDiag mistakenly including oracle instant client.


This Hotfix addresses the following issues:

  • Resolves an Issue with the nqdaemon Script in Solaris Global Zones (Solaris only) This Hotfix resolves an issue where the nqmdaemon script does not properly stop and start the UNIX agent in Solaris Global Zones. (ENG268257)
  • Resolves an Issue with Performance Counters Affecting the LogicalDiskIO Knowledge Script (HP-UX only) This Hotfix resolves an issue on HP-UX PA-RISC and HP-UX IA64 computers where the LogicalDiskIO knowledge script reports the event Could not find I/O statistics for Logical Disk Object DISK_OBJECT_DESCRIPTION after a disk or logical volume is added or deleted. This Hotfix changes the Performance Counter library file. (ENG268851)
  • Resolves an Issue where RemoteProcessDown and AsciiLog Knowledge Scripts Fail This Hotfix resolves an issue where the RemoteProcessDown and AsciiLog knowledge scripts fail with an error reporting the missing missing Perl module String::CRC32. (ENG274048, ENG277332)
  • Resolves an Issue with Events Not Appearing in Analysis Center (AIX only) This Hotfix resolves an issue where events from the UNIX agent on AIX computers do not appear in Analysis Center due to incorrectly calculated bias time. (ENG274349)
  • Resolves an Issue with the NetiqDiag Script Reporting Oracle Instant Client Libraries This Hotfix resolves an issue where the diagnostics script unnecessarily captures the Oracle Instant Client libraries. (ENG275559)
