Director Agent 6.3 on AIX is Logging Too Many Messages in the Console



When the cas_agent subsystem is running on an AIX agent, it logs messages similar to the following:

bin/nonstop_aix @/var/opt/tivoli/ep/runtime/nonstop/config/  

They can be seen with the alog -o -f /var/adm/ras/conslog command or on the vterm to this system using HMC.

This occurs with agents that have the following cas.agent fileset version:



This is fixed in the 6.3_c agent refresh for AIX that can be downloaded from the following location:

Download and install SysDir6_3_Common_Agent_AIX_c.jar, SysDir6_3_Common_Agent_AIX_c.tar.gz or ysDir6_3_Common_Agent_Installp_AIX_VIOS_c.tar.gz following the installation instructions in the IBM Systems Director InfoCenter: .

In the instructions, replace 6_3_2 with the 6.3_c equivalent. Note that 6_3_2 is not replaced with 6_3_c; however, the "_c" is appended.
