  1. Copy SASFoundation/9.4/misc/cmp/ grid hot fix installer to the parent directory of the existing TKGrid installation on the head grid node. For RHEL5, use the script.

  2. Log in to the head grid node and run the following (modify path to match your installation location):
    $ cd /install
    $ /bin/sh ./

    You should see the following:

    Verifying archive integrity... All good.
    Uncompressing TKGrid...........
    running TKGrid/bin_tkcmp_04/hfInstall TKGrid /install
    TKGrid HotFix Configuration Utility.
    Running on ''
    Using stdin for options.
    Shared install or replicate to each node? (Y=SHARED/n=replicated)

  3. Check with your grid install team to determine if the existing grid software was deployed using a replicated or shared approach. Answer the question accordingly and proceed with the grid software update. If necessary, respond with YES to confirm the software update on all of the other grid nodes.

    The updated shared libraries will be located in the /install/TKGrid/lib_tkcmp_04 folder (or libN where N is the version number for the hot fix update).
    If necessary, the permissions on the /install/TKGrid folder for all grid nodes may need to be updated for group read/write permissions.

  4. Check with your grid install team to determine if the existing grid software was deployed using a replicated or shared approach for TKGrid_REP. If so, follow these steps to update the file in TKGrid_REP deployment.
  5. Edit the TKGrid_REP/ file

  6. Search for the first reference of “export TKPATH=” in the file, for example you may something like this:

    export TKERSA2_LIB_PATH=$TKMPI_DIR/lib2
    export TKPATH=$TKPATH:$TKMPI_DIR/lib2
  7. Before the first “export TKPATH=” line, insert the following line:

    export TKPATH=$TKPATH:$TKMPI_DIR/lib_tkcmp_04
  8. Once the new line has been inserted, save the updated file. It may look something like this:

    export TKERSA2_LIB_PATH=$TKMPI_DIR/lib2
    export TKPATH=$TKPATH:$TKMPI_DIR/lib_tkcmp_04
    export TKPATH=$TKPATH:$TKMPI_DIR/lib2
  9. If the TKGrid_REP is replicated, push the updated file out to the other nodes with simcp:

    /opt/TKGrid/bin/simcp /opt/TKGrid_REP/ /opt/TKGrid_REP

This completes the installation of hot fix W02007 on 64-bit Enabled Solaris.
