    littel question.

    I have done this How To only i get one error every time.

    [[email protected] ~]# export _POSIX2_VERSION=199209
    [[email protected] ~]# chmod +x HPSIM-Linux-C.
    [[email protected] ~]# ./HPSIM-Linux-C.
    Verifying archive integrity...OK
    Uncompressing Hewlett-Packard Development Company, L.P. HP Systems Insight Manager C.
    There is another version of postgresql installed on this system.
    You will need to remove this version of postgresql before attempting to install HP Systems Insight Manager.
    The program returned an error code (2)
    [[email protected] ~]#

    this is the How To script

    1. Install CentOS 5.0
    2. Download HP SIM:

    3. Installing the software
    (The following section can be copied into a shell script):

    # First do a upgrade of the system
    yum update -y

    # reboot if needed

    # We need to trick the HP software so it thinks Redhat Enterprise is installed
    nano /etc/redhat-release
    # Remove what it says and insert: Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 5

    # Install dependencies
    yum install compat-readline43 openssl097a compat-libstdc++-33 -y

    # We need to change the posix default version
    export _POSIX2_VERSION=199209

    # And now we run the downloaded HP SIM Package
    chmod +x HPSIM-Linux-C.

    # Configuring the HP SIM for the system
    /opt/mx/bin/mxinitconfig -l
    /opt/mx/bin/mxinitconfig -a

    # and done

    You should now be able to login to the HP SIM via a web browser at http://$IP:280/
    Log in with user root and the user's password.

    This HOWTO will not cover HP SIM Setup as it is very well documentet by HP here:


    I think there is done update white postgresql but when doesnt use the yum update get the same error
