file.depot

I downloaded 'PHNE_27792.depot' then I read the document 'Installion Instructions' but one small problem that I can't understand. Here is:

*Copy the patch to the /tmp dir
*Go to /tmp
*sh PHNE_23277

but got error, here is:

sh: PHNE_27792: not found.

Did I miss something?

Re: file.depot

Thomas,

Normally, the file you download would be called PHNE_27792 and the sh command would create PHNE_27792.depot and PHNE_27792.text files from it. How and where did you manage to download a .depot file?

Re: file.depot

what did you download?
depot file?

when you do

sh PHNE_27792

it should create two files .txt and .depot file.

hope this helps.

Re: file.depot

Hi,

with the "file" command you can check if you have the shell archive (sh) or already the unshared tar archive:

file PHNE_27792
PHNE_27792: shar file

file PHNE_27792.depot
PHNE_27792.depot: tar file

The last one can be installed by swinstall without further action.

Re: file.depot

Ohh I learn something...

Ok, then I tried to install by using swinstall but got error, is that because of no .text? Like this:

swinstall -x autoreboot=true -x match_target=true -s /tmp/PHNE_23277.depot

Am I doing right?

Re: file.depot

Tom,

I re-read your previous post. It looks like you may have a special case where you did, in fact, download a .depot file. If that's the case, you don't need to unshar it with the "sh PHNE_23277" command.

Re: file.depot

Hi,

what happened if you do:

# sh /tmp/PHNE_23277

or if you do an 'sh' to the file in the directory you downloaded it?

Please try again to download it, here a server you can find the patch:

ftp://europe-ffs.external.hp.com
---> hp-ux_patches
---> S700_800
---> 11.x

Re: file.depot

What was the swinstall error?

Re: file.depot

What is the error you are getting? Swinstall does not care if there isn't a .txt file there. It just needs the .depot file. If your depot file is not valid though, then swinstall will have trouble.

What happens if you do:

# mv PHNE_27792.depot PHNE_27792

# sh PHNE_27792

# swinstall .....

Re: file.depot

BTW which patch are you trying to install? PHNE_27792 or PHNE_23277?

Re: file.depot

Tom,

Try again, adding "mount_all_filesystems=false" to your swinstall command.

Re: file.depot

Yes, not all filesystems in /etc/fstab are currently mounted. Use the following option also:

-x mount_all_filesystems=false
Well, yeah ... I suppose there's no point in getting greedy, is there?

Oops! I mean it is PHNE_27792. I need some more coffee :-)

-x mount_all_filesystems=false

GREAT! It works! Many thanks so much and I just want to know, is my server required to reboot? Or not need?

Re: file.depot

Not needed. If it was the patch would have said so and the auto_reboot=true would have caused it to happen.

Re: file.depot

If a reboot would have been required you would have to provide the autoreboot=true option and then it would have rebooted automatically, so no, no reboot required.

Re: file.depot

Hi,

please have a look in the PHNE_27792.text file, there you would find if the patchinstallation will produce a AUTOREBOOT or not.

Re: file.depot

Believe it or not... I don't have PHNE_27792.text file. I downloaded the file like this 'PHNE_23277.depot.gz' from HP!

Re: file.depot

Great... I learn something that if I updated the BIND and not work then I can restore from /var/adm/sw/patch/PHNE_27792/* by manual or should I use swinstall or sw(restore)?

Re: file.depot

Thomas,

To back off a patch, you use swremove.

Re: file.depot

You can restore by swremoving the patch.

# swremove

then select the fileset (patch) you want to remove and the orig files will be placed back.
