Advisory: Linux - Files in Directories Under /var/spool/compaq/hpasm/registry/ Have Set Group ID Up On Execution (SGID) Bit Set and the Total Memory May Display "0MB" in System Management Homepage (SMH) on HPE Servers Running HPE SNMP Agents for Linux

Last Updated: 2017-08-25


DESCRIPTION

On an HPE ProLiant server running the HPE SNMP Agents for Linux Version 10.60 (hp-snmp-agents), the following may occur:

  • Files in directories under /var/spool/compaq/hpasm/registry/ have a Set Group ID up on execution (SGID) bit set that typically inherits permission from the user. This may cause security software to flag the agents due to the SGID bit set.

AND

  • When 32 128MB DIMMS are installed, the total memory displays "0MB" in System Management Homepage (SMH) -> System->System Board with SNMP Data Source.

The operation or functionality of the server is not affected.

SCOPE

Any HPE ProLiant server running the hp-snmp-agents version 10.60.

RESOLUTION

This does not affect the operation or functionality of the server.

This is targeted to be resolved in a future version of the hp-snmp-agents as follows:

Files in directories under /var/spool/compaq/hpasm/registry/ will not have the SGID bit set

And

The SMH System Board page will display the actual memory installed instead of "0 MB."

As a workaround, the memory installed in the server can be viewed using the following:

  • Memory Subsystem page in SMH
  • Power-On Self-Test (POST)
  • Integrated Lights-Out (iLO)
  • Operating System

This advisory will be updated when additional information is available.
