Install websm client on Linux to access HMC

Install websm client on Linux

From your Linux box copy over /usr/websm/pc_client/wsmlinuxclient.exe  from your AIX LPAR.

For Centos x86_64 I needed additional RPMs :-

yum groupinstall “GNOME Desktop Environment”     ( only needed if you don’t have X11 installed )
yum install libXmu.i386
yum install libXp.i386

Note the libs have to be the i386 version even though the Linux is x86_64

Install websm

./wsmlinuxclient.exe -console

If you accept the defaults then after teh install satrt it up :-

/opt/websm/bin/wsm

If it bombs out with errors like :-

java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: /opt/websm/_jvm/bin/libawt.so: libXp.so.6: canno
t open shared object file: No such file or directory
Then install the missing library RPM ( it needs to be the i386 version )
