 while upgrading srvadmin-hapi from 8.3.0-1 to 8.4.0-1 the installation
fails on Debian Jessie with following output.

a symlink from /etc/init.d/instsvcdrv -> /etc/rc.d/init.d/instsvcdrv

After that, the installation succeeds, but omreport fails with:

Error : Memory object not found


I write another mail when i have found the reason for this.
