I am trying to configure an HTTP_PROXY so that suma can reach out beyond our intranet and pull updates from the IBM website. Currently, our suma config is the default as it's not been used before. When I attempt to issue the following command sudosuma -c -a HTTP_PROXY=http://our-proxy.location.company.com:8080/ I get the following error 0500-019 The -a flag entry HTTP_PROXY=http://our-proxy.location.company.com:8080/ is not valid.
I know this proxy is working, as it is being use elsewhere with no issues. I'd like to get this tool working as it seems to be the easiest method of bringing patches into our environment, so any advice will certain help! Thank you.
Probably the trailing / after :8080 should not be there..
I tried removing it already to no avail. What I did find is that SUMA no longer allows you to define the HTTP proxy within SUMA itself. I need to use srv_conn to edit it. I'll go ahead and test that now.
Thank you for your reply.
EDIT: I configured the HTTP proxy, now the preview command is yielding
But, I can go to Fix Central myself and input this machines serial and machine type and download fixes Manually. Ugh.
Starting with AIX 7.1 the http proxy is no longer an environment variable. Instead, you configure the proxy via the electronic service agent.
As you noted, the fastpath to that is "smitty srv_conn". I did not realize that was the fast path at me.
Yeah, I had just noticed that in the man page for suma. Unfortunately configuring the http proxy successfully still hasn't yielded the results I need as IBM is complaining that the serial does not have any software entitlement, which is funny, because I just checked on Fix Central and it does. Fun stuff!
I have been waiting for the day - rather fearing the day - when SUMA would also be checking the serial number.
In the back of my mind I am thinking the check is not SUMA, but the electronic service agent saying you are not "support ready".
In any case - also get your IBM service contact involved, perhaps opening a PMR.
Thanks for the reply. I did get them involved, and their "solution" is to just manually download all of the fixes myself and perform manual patching. Well, in such a big environment I don't think that's really an acceptable response. Guess I need to escalate with them past first line support.
EDIT: Does ESA need to be installed for suma to work?
I am having a hard time with this one. We have a websocket server listening on port 80 at myserver.com/wsDemo?ID=12. We need to test a client program by connecting it to this server through a proxy. I am trying nginx 1.2.7 as the proxy on port 8080, running on proxy-server. We want the client to... (1 Reply)
