swlist Error : Duplicate definition for the bundle "HWEnable11i"

Hi Friends,

This server was rebuild from Fresh Minimum OS install and restored the file systems, after that we did patching on this server.

Now the problem is swlist shows the following error.

# swlist |more
# Initializing...
# Contacting target "stvsascd.corpnet2.com"...
ERROR: Duplicate definition for the product "EMS-KRMonitor",
beginning at line 65137. This product defines the same values
for the same version attributes as another product or bundle
contained in the root (installation). Those attributes are

EMS-KRMonitor,l=/,r=A.11.11.05,a=HP-UX_B.11.11_32/64,v=HP

The duplicate product has been marked as corrupt, and its tag
attribute changed to "_product_65137".
ERROR: Duplicate definition for the bundle "HWEnable11i", beginning
at line 80444. This bundle defines the same values for the

in the root (installation). Those attributes are

HWEnable11i,r=B.11.11.0509.430,a=HP-UX_B.11.11_32/64,v=HP

The duplicate bundle has been marked as corrupt, and its tag
attribute changed to "_bundle_80444".

-------

All i can see the difference is there are 2 dir of OLD and new. where as in other server its no there.

These files are present at /var/adm/sw/products

# ls HW*

HWEnable11i:
pfiles

HWEnable11i.2:
pfiles
#


# ls EMS*
EMS-Core:
EMS-CORE EMS-MX pfiles

EMS-Core.2:
EMS-CORE EMS-MX pfiles

EMS-KRMonitor:
KRMON-DRV-CMN KRMON-DRV-DRV KRMON-MAN KRMON-RUN pfiles

EMS-KRMonitor.2:
KRMON-DRV-CMN KRMON-DRV-DRV KRMON-MAN KRMON-RUN pfiles


#

any help is appriciated much. I need to solve this issue as soon as possible,
I am not sure if i can move HWEnable11i, EMS-Core:, EMS-KRMonitor:, I am saying this as these files are not present in other server which is of same config as this server.

I know little about swconfig, so not sure if this works.

Please advice on how/what are steps required to resolve this issue ?

Many Thanks!!

Re: swlist Error : Duplicate definition for the bundle "HWEnable11i"

Thanks for the reply,

I wonder if i can remove these two bundles as i can see them in swlist as different name.

_bundle_80444 B.11.11.0509.430 Hardware Enablement Patches for HP-UX 11i v1, September 2005

_product_65137 A.11.11.05 EMS Kernel Resource Monitor


What happens if i use swremove and remove these budles ???

THis is a productions server

Re: swlist Error : Duplicate definition for the bundle "HWEnable11i"

Bundles are funny things. The wrappers themselves are of no real impact to the system. They have no real contents and are not used as the target of any dependencies.

The real concern is the filesets. Run the command:

swlist -l fileset -a state

and check if any of these are in the corrupt or transient states. If not, your system is fine! Not sure what happened to the bundle wrappers, but you can get rid of them easily. Just use the command:

swremove HWEnable11i.

to only remove the HWEnable11i bundle wrapper while leaving all of the contents. Once the troubled bundle wrappers have been removed, they could be reinstalled using the same "." trick.

If you have corrupt or transient filesets, make sure your data is backed up before you do anything else. When the tape is spinning, let us know what filesets are in trouble.
