Subject RE: [users@httpd] Configuring Siteminder 5.5 for apache2.0 on HP-UX 11- can't find

That piece of shit has made me tear all of my hair out, but if you really have to use it, please
make yourself a favor and use the latest and greatest (SMWA 5QMR8). I think I counted something
like 160 bug fixes in that release, as compared to appx. 40 in other releases. Given all the
problems I have had with previous releases of the so-called framework agent, I think they
have had huge quality problems that have hopefully been solved after CA acquired Netegrity.

What I believe is your problem is that libmod_sm20 depends on another library, and since it
appears that /opt/siteminder2/webagent/lib/ is not in your SHLIB_PATH, the run-time linker
can't find it.

The definitions below relate to Solaris. You probably want to replace LD_LIBRARY_PATH with

I added the following to the Apache environment. There are several ways of doing that. I personally
prefer adding to the end of apache/bin/envvars:


You absolutely need to set both LD_LIBRARY_PATH (SHLIB_PATH) and PATH in order for the LLAWP
process to be able to start.

Good luck!

I'm very new to the apache/unix world and am currently in charge of switching the web server
my department's web pages run on to apache (currently they are running on a sun one server).
 My first goal is to get apache and siteminder working together nicely.  I installed apache
2.0 and compiled it with as the only non-default module.  The siteminder installation
went well and it is registered as a trusted host with our policy servers.  I followed the
netegrity installation/configuration manual for configuring siteminder for apache and added
the following to apache's httpd.conf file: 

	PassEnv SHLIB_PATH /opt/siteminder2/webagent/config
	LoadModule sm_module "/opt/siteminder2/webagent/lib/"
	SmInitFile "\opt\sitemindre2\webagent\config\WebAgent.conf"
		(also tried \opt\web\apache2\conf\WebAgent.conf...the manual is very confusing as to 		what
<web_agent_home> means. )

	Alias /siteminderagent/ .<web_agent_home>/samples/.
	<Directory "/export/webagent/samples/">
	Options Indexes MultiViews
	AllowOverride None
	Order allow,deny
	Allow from all

	AddHandler smcookieprovider-handler .ccc
