Hi,

I am trying to run rsync on an AIX Server, but I keep getting the following error messages.
I've tried to include helpful information below.

Thank you.

Hi,

did you get all the mentioned packages (rsync, libiconv, popt) from the same source (probably BULL)?

If so it's indeed a bit strange that rsync would search its shared libraries in /usr/lib, because it should have been linked with the proper path /opt/freeware/lib.

What do you get with "ldd $(which rsync)" and "ls -l /usr/lib/libiconv* /usr/lib/libpopt*" ?

Creating links for libpopt in /usr/lib would be fairly easy, but a link for libiconv would conflict with IBM's own implementation which already resides in /usr/lib.

Try
lppchk with c/v/f
To verify that all filesets have all required requisites and are completely installed.

lppchk does not operate on packages of type "R" (= RPM)

Hi,

Hope this is what you were asking for...the packages were pulled from a different server, but I think they originated at Perzl.

Your packages are obviously not (all) from perzl.org.
At least libiconv is not from there. That version does not contain a link from /usr/lib/libiconv.a to /opt/freeware/lib/libiconv.a (as in your case), because forcibly creating such a link would destroy the library shipped by IBM.

Are you sure that the rsync binary in your path (the one that throws the errors in question) is the same as /usr/bin/rsync or /opt/freeware/bin/rsync?

Or do you just have a LIBPATH setting in your environment? If so, retry the failing rsync after unsetting it:

unset LIBPATH

If this doesn't help I think you should reinstall rsync and all its dependencies as offered by perzl.org.

You'll need (mind the sequence!):

- zlib http://www.oss4aix.org/download/RPMS/zlib/zlib-1.2.8-1.aix5.1.ppc.rpm
- libgcc http://www.oss4aix.org/download/RPMS/gcc/libgcc-4.8.2-1.aix6.1.ppc.rpm
- libffi http://www.oss4aix.org/download/RPMS/libffi/libffi-3.0.13-1.aix5.1.ppc.rpm
- libiconv http://www.oss4aix.org/download/RPMS/libiconv/libiconv-1.14-2.aix5.1.ppc.rpm
-- or install bos.iconv.com. bos.rte.iconv and bos.iconv.ucs.com from the AIX base DVD.
- gettext http://www.perzl.org/aix/index.php?n=Main.Gettext
-- Please observe the instructions given on that page!
- popt http://www.oss4aix.org/download/RPMS/popt/popt-1.16-1.aix5.1.ppc.rpm
- rsync http://www.oss4aix.org/download/RPMS/rsync/rsync-3.1.0-1.aix5.1.ppc.rpm

It is still reporting errors after the unset so I will re-install as advised.

Thank you wmp!
