Description

To be able to support AIX in Rudder, we need to correctly parse inventory reports for that plateform.

#1

Updated by François ARMAND about 6 years ago

First problem: Fusion Inventory does not get a KERNEL_VERSION for AIX, which is one of our mandatory tag.

In other Unix, they seems to use the OPERATINGSYSTEM>VERSION as the KERNEL_VERSION, so we could do the same.

We could also use the HARDWARE>OSVERSION has the kernel version, because it is the result of the command "oslevel -r" and it seems to be what is the most relevant for AIX has a kernel version (see: http://unix.ittoolbox.com/groups/technical-functional/ibm-aix-l/aix-kernel-version-1228197).

In either case, we have to change the consistency check of the inventory with a hook: "if AIX, it's OK to not have KERNEL_VERSION, as long as [H>OSVERSION|OS>VERSION] is not empty]

#2

Updated by François ARMAND about 6 years ago

For now, I will take HARDWARE > OSVERSION so that all the logic can be implemented and tested (and because it seems to be what we want), but the actual alternative tag to use in place of KERNEL_VERSION can be change latter.
