swinstall Issue

Hi Guys,

I am facing problem while installing patches for HP-UX 11i v1 . I got Support plus cd ( june 2004 ) from HP. I tried to installed bundles through the procedure given in readme files.but it is failing. Moreover i downloaded the depot files from net , but it failed as well.

When I tried to use Support Plus Cd for GOLDQPK11i Bundle, it failed with following messages
Cannot open the logfile on this target or source. Possibly the media is
read-only or there is a permission problem. Check the daemon
logfile and "/var/tmp/swagent.log" on this host for more
information.
NOTE: The patch match operation failed to find patches for target
software on "" which passed the filter.
NOTE: Cannot continue the "swinstall" task.

But if I run swlist, it shows me the products of GOLDQPK bundle!!!!

When I tried with downloaded depot file, it give me error as

NOTE: The patch match operation failed to find patches for target
software on "" which passed the filter.
NOTE: Cannot continue the "swinstall" task.
swlist works with this depot file as well.

If I do it through Sam, it gives
no product found compatible with the target
message.

I checked the swagent log file as well
it shows messages like job started and ended etc.. . No debug info there..

I guess , the current version of hp-ux is not getting detected by swinstall. Am i right?

I am using command given in user guide as

swinstall -s /cdrom/GOLDQPK11i -x patch_match_target=true -x autoreboot=true

Pls advise and early reply would be appretiated.

Thanks & Regards
Sam

Re: swinstall Issue

Hi Sam,

Post your 'model' and 'uname -a' outputs.

Try running 'swinstall' and specify the source as full path of the GOLDQPK. Then you can select only patches matching the target from "Actions" menu.

Re: swinstall Issue

I suspect you are not running the right OS for this gold pack.

swverify \* to make sure there is nothing hosed in the sd/ux database.

Re: swinstall Issue

Guys,
The netconf in which OS was mentioned as the name of the system!!!!! Which was strange!!!!
Hence in uname output , it was showing hostname at first place instead of HP-UX..
That's why the OS was not getting detected by swinstall and trouble started..

Thnaks for all your replies, appretiated..
