copy sw from one system to another.

Hi,

HP-UX 11.0 L2000.

I want to copy software, that has been installed on one server to another server.

The software is listed when we
run:
swlist -l product

How can we do this?

Re: copy sw from one system to another.

In order to copy you would need the source, not the installed software. See man swcopy.

Re: copy sw from one system to another.

Hi Pete,

What you're saying is once the software is installed we can not copy it to anywhere else? I don't have the original CD containing the
software. Does that mean we're out of luck?

Re: copy sw from one system to another.

Sorry, Gino, that's my understanding of the way it works. It makes sense to me, especially with licensed software, that HP would not provide the ability to copy it to any old server.

Hi,
Use swcopy to create a software depot on one server an then swinstall to install the software using your depot.

Re: copy sw from one system to another.

Hi,

If you copy the installed software from one system to another it wouldn't work.

solution is installing on the another system also

If you copy the software, any commands like swlist, swremove wouldn't list that software i.e the software is not build into kernel
never give up

Re: copy sw from one system to another.

You should be able to order or download new source via Software Update Manager (available off the ITRC home page).

Re: copy sw from one system to another.

Gino,

Just so we're clear on what you're trying to accomplish, what kind of software are you trying to copy? What's your goal, exactly? Are you looking to clone a system? Ignite/UX can help you do this. Is the software HP stuff or a 3rd party app?

At any rate, you need to be sure that you don't exceed the licensing terms.

Regards,

Dave

Re: copy sw from one system to another.

Hi Dave,

I have licenses for the software. I am trying to copy
a DB-SPI (ITO) from one ITO server to another for test purposes. The version of the DB-SPI is old and we are planning to upgrade but I need the original copy installed on our development
server first.

Re: copy sw from one system to another.

Gino,
I think if you copy the whole server(which containing the software) to deveploment server it should be working.
Last time , when we want to copy the "A" software from production machine to development machine,we do :
1) Ignite the production machine.(backup vg00)
2) restore to development machine.
3) if space is not a problem,copy the whole vg to deveploment machine.


p/s:In case you are wondering, we do have "A" license to copy to development. :-)
