print_manifest template file

In UX11, I am able to copy print_manifest and the template file to an nfs mounted directory and run:
print_manifest -t /dir_path/template.def

we can run this on any 11 system that does not have Ignite installed.
With UX10, we are getting: Cannot find the manifest directory
/var/opt/ignite/local/manifest
it will work if I make this path and put the config file in.
A lot of our UX10 boxes did not have the disk space to have Ignite installed, that is why we are trying to do it this way.

Does anyone know if the -t option is not available for UX10 or if it is different?

Re: print_manifest template file

Hi Eileen,

When using the -t /path_dir/template.def on HP-UX10.20 you need to specify the template file using an absolute pathname or by using a name relative to the manifest directory.

Looking closer at the command print_manifest with 'strings' shows a few strings like the following:
/var/opt/ignite/local/manifest
/var/opt/ignite/local/manifest/template.def
Error: Can't find the manifest directory
Error: Can't cd to the manifest directory

This demonstrates at least that the directory is hard coded into the program.

Best regards,

Dan

Re: print_manifest template file

At 10.20, the print_manifest -t option existed. (I checked my version is A.2.5.136.)

It doesn't seem to work from another directory path. It wants to see the config file in /var/opt/ignite/local/manifest.
I have version A.2.6.

Re: print_manifest template file

Have you tried creating the path and using it from there?

Yes, it does work if we make the path and put a config file in. We are going to run cron jobs to do print_manifest commands on systems using an nfs mounted directory. It looks like we will have to copy the config file out if it doesn't already exist.
