product install with Sysman utility

I am trying to install the product(.pcsi) on other node of cluster using through sysman utility, but it is not installing.

$mc sysman
sysman> set environment/node=nodename
sysman> do product install productname/source=[pcsi destination]
it going upto some point and after that it is coming out with sysman prompt only.infact while installing it has to ask some question to the user but before that only it coming out.

what i am trying is it posiable or not. If yes
where i am going wrong.
Waiting for reply.

Regards
Deepak

Re: product install with Sysman utility

I think you would have more answers in the Vms forum, as I guess this is a Vms installation.

For that problem, I guess that if your installation requires some answers, it will fail, unless you have put an answer file, like a .ans in sys$common: for a vmsinstal installation.

there is a similar mechanism with product install

Re: product install with Sysman utility

Hello Deepak,

First I do agree with Gerard, this is a Linux forum while you do ask a VMS question. Your chances to get a good answer a much better over at

http://forums1.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/familyhome.do?familyId=288

in the OpenVMS forum.

Having said that and as one of the more active members over there ;-)

* What is actually the problem you do want to solve?

If we are talking about a cluster with a common system disk you only need to install once in the cluster so I do not understand why you would need SYSMAN at all. If you do want to install into sys$specific and/or have several system disks you do need to make sure you do have separate PCSI databases, else you are seriously asking for trouble.

Now assuming you do have good reasons, check the installation instructions ;-) E.g. the latest 7.3-2 patch carries the following note, which should cover your issue:

- $ DEFINE/SYS NO_ASK$BACKUP TRUE

- $ DEFINE/SYS NO_ASK$REBOOT TRUE

- Add the following qualifiers to the PRODUCT INSTALL command and
add that command to the DCL procedure.

/PROD=DEC/BASE=AXPVMS/VER=1.0


- De-assign the logicals assigned

For example, a sample command file to install the
VMS732_GRAPHICS-V0100 kit would be:

$
$ DEFINE/SYS NO_ASK$BACKUP TRUE
$ DEFINE/SYS NO_ASK$REBOOT TRUE
$!
$ PROD INSTALL VMS732_GRAPHICS/PROD=DEC/BASE=AXPVMS/VER=1.0
$!
$ DEASSIGN/SYS NO_ASK$BACKUP
$ DEASSIGN/SYS NO_ASK$REBOOT
$!
$ exit

Adapt to your needs, wrap in a DCL and execute this DCL via SYSMAN and off you go ;-)
