Online JFS installation fails

Hi,
We have one PA-RISC running hp-ux 11.23 with latest patches. Now I am trying to install Online JFS but it fails with the below error.
* Summary of Analysis Phase:
ERROR: + Exclude VRTSvxfs.VXFS-KRN,r=4.1.001
ERROR: + Exclude VRTSvxfs.VXFS-PRG,r=4.1.001
ERROR: + Exclude VRTSvxfs.VXFS-RUN,r=4.1.001
ERROR: Exclude OnlineJFS01.VXFS41-AD-RN,r=4.1.008
ERROR: + Exclude VRTSfsman.VXFS-ENG-A-MAN,r=4.1.001
ERROR: 5 of 56 filesets had Errors.
* 51 of 56 filesets will be Skipped.
ERROR: The Analysis Phase had errors. See the above output for
details.
Also attaching the error logs fore more info.
During the OS installation I have selected Base-VXVM but not Base-VXFS. Is it due to this reason Online JFS fails? What have to do now for installing Online JFS?

Thanks in advance...

Hi,

-

-

Yes this is the reason why the installation failed.

From your attached logfile.
-
The dependencies for fileset "VRTSvxfs.VXFS-KRN,r=4.1.001"\ cannot be resolved (see previous lines). You must resolve the above dependencies before operating on this fileset or change the "enforce_dependencies" option to "false". The corequisite "VRTSvxfs.VXFS-KRN,fa=HP-UX_B.11.23_PA" for fileset "VRTSvxfs.VXFS-PRG,r=4.1.001" cannot be successfully resolved.
-
VRTSvxfs.VXFS-KRN is part of the Base-VXFS depot.

Hi,
Thanks for the fast responds...
Can I do this Base-VXFS instalation online. I think it requires a reboot? And hope it will not disturb the OS File system at all.... Please give your comments...

Thanks...

Re: Online JFS installation fails

it will reboot

The Base-VXFS installation changes the /stand/system file and rebuilds the kernel

Hi Pramod,

>> Can I do this Base-VXFS instalation online. I think it requires a reboot?
Yes, after the installation, there will be a reboot.

Check the following link for more details -

Hope this helps.

Re: Online JFS installation fails

Hi,

Thanks for the information.
I have already updated the OS with latest Standard patch Bundles
QPK --- Jun 2010
FEA --- Sep 2009
Hope this will not effect the Base-VXFS installation. Is any update patch required for Base-VXFS 4.1.002

Thanks...

Hi Pramod,

The document that i had provided has a section for patch requirements.
Section -> "Patch Requirements".
This does not talk about any update patch.
You may want to look at that section for the list of patches that have been mentioned.
