On every SLES 11 SP2 server, the “boot.compliance” service fails on boot. Many times we get a “Press any key to proceed with booting” message.
I see that /etc/init.d/boot.compliance is new in SP2. This script calls /usr/bin/isCompliant, but when run from the shell I get:
Can't locate SUSE/Corral.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/local/perl-5.12.3/lib/site_perl/5.12.3/x86_64-linux /usr/local/perl-5.12.3/lib/site_perl/5.12.3 /usr/local/perl-5.12.3/lib/5.12.3/x86_64-linux /usr/local/perl-5.12.3/lib/5.12.3 .) at /usr/bin/isCompliant line 21.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/bin/isCompliant line 21.
As you can see, this is because we have a custom perl build that does not have this perl module installed, so thus isCompliant fails on boot. I could install this perl module, but I’m trying to understand what the heck this boot.compliance is there for anyway. There is zero documentation about it, from what I find on Google.
[CODE]# This script checks if the installation was done in a VMware vSphere
Some of our servers are VMs and some are physical servers. So, why does this service even get installed when I upgrade to SP2 on a physical server?
