The pre upgrade check for 9.5.17 fails on my server, currently installed is 9.5.16 on RHEL 7.
First, the check failed without writing any preupgrade-xxx files, __Local/PreCheck/BESAdmin.sh -preupgrade -standalone terminated with exit code 127. Turned out to be a missing requirement, unixODBC package is required, This is documented in the announcement, missed that. Would be nice to have that checked in the pre upgrade fixlet.
After adding unixODBC, pre upgrade is still failing, this time BESAdmin terminates with exit code 1, no log.
Running it manually returns:
Check buffer directory.
Check Non ASCII Site Files
There was an error connecting to the database. Check that you have sufficient database privileges:
Database Error: [unixODBC][Driver Manager]Can’t open lib ‘DB2’ : file not found (01000: 0)
Did I miss another prerequisite? ODBC configuration required?
