Broadsoft Updgrade with Red Hat "up2date"10 May 2011
Just over 2 months ago I started a massive project to upgrade Broadworks from Release 13 to
Release 14.SP8. R13/R14 requires RHEL4 and there is an issue I ran into when running the
up2date process on my
During the initial BroadWworks installation the application changes
/bin/nice so nice may be run by
bwadmin and thus change application priority. The up2date process installs files which change the permission of /bin/nice to be exclusively accessed by
root. This means bwadmin cannot access /bin/nice through its startup scripts.
The appropraite fix for this is executing
chmod ug+s /bin/nice as
root. After working through this issue I took the time to understand more about the
renice process so I could have a better idea as to why it broke.
