I am getting the error while running the scxadmin service on RHEL 6.9.

~]# scxadmin -status
omiserver: is running
omiagent: is stopped

I have checked logs but logs are showing empty.

]# pwd

]# ls -l omiagent.root.root.log
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 0 Feb 6 00:05 omiagent.root.root.log

Sudoer file entry :

s-scomeco ALL=(ALL)       NOPASSWD: ALL

]# rpm -qa | grep -i scx

Can you let me know how can I start the omiagent service on the server?

  • welcome to U&L, what does man page for scxadmin says ? – Archemar Jul 5 '18 at 11:18
  • man page is not available for scxadmin command. scxadmin is scom monitoring service. which is use for "scxadmin {-start|-stop|-restart|-status} [all|cimom|provider]" – Ghansham Mahajan Jul 5 '18 at 11:32
  • do you have /var/opt/microsoft/scx/log/omiserver.log and is there anything interesting in it? Is there a /var/opt/microsoft/scx/run/omiserver.pid with a PID in it? – Jeff Schaller Jul 5 '18 at 11:57
  • 2018/07/05 08:13:57: WARNING: wsman: authentication failed for user [username]. I checked that user name and passwored and mentioned the correct login details in scom but I don't know why it's mention authentication failed in logs. – Ghansham Mahajan Jul 5 '18 at 12:19
  • The correct password is also set in the SCOM profiles? The user is not locked on the RHEL side? – Jeff Schaller Jul 5 '18 at 12:29
