OpenEMM 21.04 now available

Post by maschoff » Wed Jul 21, 2021 8:45 am

The GA version of OpenEMM 21.04 is available now. If you upgrade your runtime to a version 21.04.x, you will be offered to download a release of OpenEMM 21.04. If you do this in a production envrionment, we recommend to make a backup with OMT first (see Install & Admin Guide for details).

You can find a list of the new features here: https://wiki.openemm.org/doku.php#new_f ... or_changes

The latest Install & Admin Guide is available here: https://wiki.openemm.org/lib/exe/fetch. ... _1.0.3.pdf

The OpenEMM code package of OpenEMM 21.04 should work for both RedHat/CentOS and SLES.

If you find any issues with this version, please post in this forum so that we can take care of it.

Thanks for the new release,

I upgraded from 20.04 to 21.04 today and after solving the same problems i have at every upgrade, all is running fine.

With every update the owner:group of /home/openemm/tomcat/logs get´s chanegd to root:root and tomcat can´t write into catalina.out
So i need to change the rights for this folder ...

I think the new admin guide 1.0.3 is missing the installation of mysclient in chapter 3.4 MariaDB for RHEL/CentOS

python3 -m pip install mysqlclient

Thanks for the great product ! :D

Thanks for your feedback, we will look into the Tomcat ownership.

With OpenEMM 21.04 we no longer use the mysqlclient for MariaDB (because of problems), but the mariadb driver:
Finally, you need to install Python 3 (see chapter 12) and finalize the configuration with
installing the database driver:
# python3 -m pip install mariadb

Thanks,

but i installed with admin guide 1.0.3 and the sql client was missing...
After starting ./OMT.sh the installer recommended this cmd ...

[openemm@localhost bin]$ ./OMT.sh
Checking python installation ...
Python version found: 3.8.8
Mandatory python mysql module is missing!
Command to install python mysql module: 'sudo /usr/bin/python3 -m pip install mysqlclient'

What driver should i use?

This happend in my clean Installation with CentOS 8 Stream and 21.04 from scratch.
So i installed mysqlclient ... (last line in script)

# 3.4 MariaDB for RHEL/CentOS 8
dnf -y install mariadb-server mariadb
dnf -y install mariadb-devel mariadb-connector-c

# 12 Deployment of Python 3.8 (or later)
dnf -y install gcc gcc-c++ libgcrypt-devel libxml2-devel openssl-devel
dnf -y module enable python38
dnf -y install python38 python38-devel python38-pip python38-requests

pip3.8 install py3dns xlrd xlwt xlutils paramiko pyspf dnspython dkimpy
pip3.8 install pycrypto requests httpie setproctitle
pip3.8 install inotify aiodns aiohttp aiohttp-xmlrpc aiosmtpd
alternatives --set python3 /usr/bin/python3.8

python3 -m pip install mariadb
python3 -m pip install mysqlclient

Your file dbcfg is probably not updates. From the manual, section "Special Advice for Updating to 21.04":

Code: Select all

Finally, you have to change the settings in configuration file dbcfg from MySQL to MariaDB. Use OMT’s menu Configuration, sub-menu Change configuration of database connection to change parameter jdbc-connect to
jdbc:mariadb://127.0.0.1/openemm?zeroDateTimeBehavior=convertToNull&useUnicode=true&characterEncoding=UTF-8
and parameter jdbc-driver to
org.mariadb.jdbc.Driver
BTW, we could not reproduce the problem with Tomcat's ownership.

Hi,

i get the mysqlclient / mariadb error message in a clean installation with runtime 21.04.000.116.

[openemm@localhost bin]$ ./OMT.sh
Checking python installation ...
Python version found: 3.8.8
Mandatory python mysql module is missing!
Command to install python mysql module: 'sudo /usr/bin/python3 -m pip install mysqlclient'

During a clean installation there is no etc/dbcfg that i can edit...
Must be a OMT.sh installer error :D

Can you verifiy your python/mysql verification?
It´s only verifiying if mysqlclient is installed and not mariadb client, so i assumes the installer MUST fail on CentOS 8.

Code: Select all

pythonmysql="$(${PYTHON} -c 'import MySQLdb' 2>&1)"
if [ ! $? -eq 0 ]; then {
	tput setaf 1 # set text output to red
	echo "[b]Mandatory python mysql module is missing![/b]"
	tput sgr0 # reset text color
	[b]if [ "${osVendor}" == "Suse" ]; then {[/b]
		echo "Commands to install python mysql module:"
		echo "Configure the official MariaDB repository 'https://downloads.mariadb.org/mariadb/repositories/'"
		[b]echo "zypper install -y MariaDB-devel MariaDB-shared MariaDB-client"[/b]
		echo "pip2 install mysqlclient"
		exit 1
	} [b]else[/b] {
		[b]echo "Command to install python mysql module: 'sudo ${PYTHON} -m pip install mysqlclient'"[/b]
