Installation of Storage Foundation 6.0 and 6.0.1 fails due to missing rpms. When performing a preinstall check (installer -precheck) for Storage Foundation (SF) 6.0 / 6.0.1 on RedHat Linux 6.2 / 6.3 release, it complains about the required operating system (OS) rpms not being installed, despite that the latest release of rpms have been installed on the system.
CPI ERROR V-9-30-2225 The following required OS rpms (or higher version) were not
found on system1:
pam-1.1.1-8.el6.i686 libstdc++-4.4.5-6.el6.i686 libgcc-4.4.5-6.el6.i686
CPI installer recognizes the higher version of required rpms.
However, in this case, the required rpms for [rpmname]-[version].i686' (.i686 extension) were missing on the system. Irrespective of whether the platform is x86_64 or i686, SF 6.0 (and above) requires certain required OS rpms for both platforms, i.e., x86_64 and i686 to be installed.
