NetIQ 5.6 UNIX Agent


* Resolves an Issue with MAX_ENABLED_ROLES for Oracle 10 and Later The Initialization parameter setting security check no longer evaluates MAX_ENABLED_ROLES if the version of Oracle is higher than 9 because Oracle 10 deprecated the MAX_ENABLED_ROLES parameter. (ENG277440, ENG276967)
* Resolves an Issue with Secure Configuration Manager Unnecessarily Reporting on Dropped Tablespaces The Users' tablespace quota security check no longer reports violations on tablespaces that have been dropped. (ENG276966)
* Resolves an Issue with Counting Password Usage When evaluating the maximum password reuse before applying this Hotfix, the Password profiles security check incorrectly calculated the maximum password reuse parameter by reporting an alert when the password was reused the maximum number of times. After you apply this Hotfix, the new Password profiles security check reports an alert when then password reuse exceeds the maximum you enter for the parameter. (ENG276964)
* Resolves an Issue with Case Senstivity for ADMIN_RESTRICTIONS The Oracle listener ADMIN_RESTRICTIONS parameter setting security check now accepts ADMIN_RESTRICTION in lower case (admin_restriction) or in mixed case. (ENG273790)
* Resolves an Issue with Verifying Redo Logs The Redo log verification security check now correctly reports information for redo log groups. (ENG273427)

   2. Copy the /unix/data/updates//p56p24.tar file for your operating system to the PSHOME/vsaunix//bin directory on the computer where you want to install the Hotfix. You can find the value for PSHOME in the /etc/vsaunix.cfg file on the target computer.
   3. Login to the computer where you want to install the Hotfix.
   4. Run the su command to switch to the root user account.
