Re: powerpath upgrade

EMC software uses their own installation system. You cannot install PowerPath with just swinstall: you have to follow EMC's installation instructions.

The installation procedure will do some pre-processing on the Powerpath files, then automatically run the necessary swinstall job for you.

The instructions are available in the documentation section of EMC's Powerlink website:
