SWVERIFY

When I run check_patches on my systems (RX8640 running HPUX 11.23) I get "NO PROBLEMS FOUND" running swverify However, running swverify \* shows "thousands" of errors.. What is the difference?

Re: SWVERIFY

Shalom,

swverify always shows errors. It checks a lot of little details.

The output needs to be checked for corrupt patches. This needs to be dealt with, most of the swverify problems are pretty mundane.

They freak you out the first time you see them, but many are meaningless.

Re: SWVERIFY

Hi:

A full 'swverify \*' examines not only patches but all installed products and filesets.

While the 'check_patches' script performs a 'swverify' this is limited to patches only --- those filesets whose names begin with PHCO, PHKL, PHNE, or PHSS.

Regards!

Re: SWVERIFY

Thanks, Thats what I thought. I just ran an swverify \* on a system that was cleanly installed and I still got some 433 errors..

Re: SWVERIFY

Shalom,

Your results are normal.

Actually pretty low.

The first time I ran the command the count was several thousand on a fairly new system.

This is unfortunate. Ideally HP's products should be swverify error free.
