SD Depot qustion

Can you have a product that is able to be installed on multiple os version?

Right now I have EMC's PowerPath in a depot on an 11.0 machine and I would like to install it on an 11.i machine (vendor says it will work)but can't--"no compatible software is available for install".

How do I modify that depot to make it avalable for install on both 11.0 and 11.i?

change the options when you do an swcopy.. or use the \* in the command line.

It works for me (tm)

Can't really modify the depot, unless you wanted to create a new one. If you do create a new depot, in your psf file, use the following lines for os_release and os_version:
os_release ?.1?.??
os_version ?

Otherwise just install this depot and within swinstall, check the option: Allow installation of incompatible software.
