IBM LMT Agent Fails To Install

I recently had an AIX system where the IBM License Management Tool failed to install. The failure message I got is:

CODAG076E Writing the agent signature file to the agent installation folder has failed. Check the agent installation folder and ensure that: 
-You have write access to the folder. 
-Files are unlocked. 
-There is sufficient space on the disk.

Followed by:

CODAG011E - The command cannot be executed.

Of course, installp takes care of everything by removing the evidence. So, the usual install logs get wiped, if they were ever created. I started by checking the likely suspects, /var and /tmp. Both had plenty of free space and both had good permissions. I double-checked my response file, it looked good and has worked on other systems.

So, I turned to filesystem free space. All of my filesytems have plenty of free space, as a percentage of size. And, there aren’t any filesystem full messages in the errpt. But, /opt and / both didn’t have much free space in terms of actual bytes. After adding just a little space to both of those, the install went through normally. And, on another system adding some free space to /var resolved the same error.



    Thanks for your help – saved me some time!


    Thanks. Helped a lot. I’ll like to talked to the moron who coded the install file. Check for at least 500MB in /opt and / (root)


    I had the same errors, but in my case the reason was a file permission.
    root /tmp/itlm > ls -al
    total 40
    drwxr-xr-x 3 root system 256 Dec 10 13:10 .
    drwxrwxrwt 9 bin bin 12288 Dec 10 13:17 ..
    dr-xr-xr-x 3 root system 4096 Dec 10 13:10 pkg

    only one lpar had this problem , the other 78 not


    I had the same errors. So after loads of troubleshooting, I found a traceInstallagent.log in /var/ibm/tivoli/common/COD/logs/install/trace.
    For me it was /home, that was to small.

    Hope this helps.
