  • Operations Automation 5.4


After running OA 5.5 update precheck following error appears in /var/log/precheck-report-<report_date>.log:

Following hosts have libstdc++ or libgcc rpms older than 4.1.2-54. POA 5.5 will not work in such environments.
    branding.provider.tld (5): libgcc version is 52, libstdc++ version is 52


Shared container or hardware node based on CentOS/RHEL 5 installed libgcc or libstdc++ is old (version < 4.1.2-54)


[root@vz47 ~]# vzpkg list -O 1002
centos-5-x86_642012-01-11 18:52:30
[root@vz47 ~]# vzctl exec 1002 rpm -qa |egrep 'libgcc|libstdc++'

Where 1002 is example of target container ID.

Hardware node:

[root@branding ~]# rpm -qa |egrep 'libgcc|libstdc++'


RPMs libgcc and libstdc++ should be updated on these hosts.


vzpkg install  1002 -p libgcc libstdc++

If the package is already installed, use the following instead:

vzpkg update 1002 -p libgcc libstdc++

In some cases the vzpkg update command would be not able to find required version for package. Because it checks on for an older version, while it should check versions in all folders. Please correct this by adding list of repos by commands:

echo{0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9}/{os,updates}/x86_64 | tr ' ' '\n' >> /vz/template/centos/5/x86_64/config/os/default/repositories
echo{0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9}/{os,updates}/i386 | tr ' ' '\n' >> /vz/template/centos/5/x86/config/os/default/repositories

And update metadata:

vzpkg update metadata centos-5-x86_64 -r

Hardware node:

yum install -y libgcc libstdc++

Please note that is necessary to install and configure yum on every linux shared node.

  • In order to update packages inside VM, yum utility will be used to update installed packages. If any dependency issue will arise during updating liggcc and libstdc++ packages, it is required to remove the package which have dependency issues and update the liggcc and libstdc++ packages and re-install the previously removed packages.
