Checking the status of the master policy

The "master" copy of the policy file resides in a repository on the primary policy server. Each primary and secondary policy server maintains a "production" copy of the policy file or files. Use the pmpolicy utility to verify that the production copy is current with the master policy.

To compare the production policy file against the master policy on the primary server

  1. From the command line, enter:
    # pmpolicy masterstatus

    If the files are in sync, the Current Revision number will match the Latest Trunk Revision number. If someone hand-edited the local copy without using pmpolicy utility commands to commit the changes, "Locally modified" will indicate "YES".

    If the production policy is not current with the master policy you can update the production policy with pmpolicy sync.

Checking the policy server

When the policy server is not working as expected, use the pmsrvcheck command to determine the state of the server and its configuration.

To verify the policy server is running

  1. From the command line, enter:
    # pmsrvcheck

    This command returns output similar to this:

    testing policy server [ Pass ]

    If the policy server is working properly, the output returns 'pass', otherwise it returns, 'fail'.

Checking policy server status

The primary and secondary policy servers need to communicate with each other. Run the pmloadcheck command on a policy server host to verify that it can communicate with other policy servers in the policy group.

To determine if there any issues with policy servers in the policy group

From the Privilege Manager for Unix host command line, enter:

# pmloadcheck -r

This command has output similar to this:

[0][root@sol10-x86 /]# pmloadcheck -r 
** Reporting current availability of each configured master... 
   * Host:myhost1.example.com (172.16.1.129) ... [ OK ] 
** Based on this data, the server list is currently ordered as: 
1.	myhosts.example.com

Checking the PM Agent configuration status

To check the PM Agent configuration status

  1. From the command line, enter:
    # pmclientinfo

    This command returns output similar to this:

    # pmclientinfo 
       - Joined to a policy group               : YES 
       - Name of policy group                   : MyPolicyGroup 
       - Hostname of primary policy server      : myhost.example.com 
       - Policy type configured on policy group : pmpolicy

    If the PM Agent has been properly configured, it will say ‘Joined to a Policy Group: YES’ and give the policy group name and primary policy server’s hostname.
