>I am not able to upgrade

What errors do you get?

Re: System Fault Managment

hi,
As the HP team told just use the below command to upgrade the SFM bundle.

i typed the command.

swinstall -s /path..../OpenSSL...

after that there is a SD install interaction which is asking for interaction, which i do not understand.

pls. help me.

>swinstall -s /path..../OpenSSL...

This seems to install OpenSSL not SFM. (But I assume you'll do that next?)

swinstall needs to be told what to do. If you want to install all of that depot, you can add to the end:
\*

If you do this, it won't go into the interactive GUI.

Re: System Fault Managment

thanks for the reply,

can you please give the complete command.

and what would be the implecations when there is no SFM in server?

Re: System Fault Managment

as i am not a system admin, i donot know whats really going on there. first i removed the SFM and upgrading all other softwares one by one, as per the document. as soon as i typed the command for swinstall it asking for interaction, which i donot know anything, as i am a DBA. so pls. help me in this regard.

Hi,

> implications

If you do not have SFM on the server you will not be able to monitor your hardware for eg:- the fans, blowers , CPU etc that is the option of having the facility of evweb will be curtailed.

swinstall -s -x autoreboot=true/false (depending on if there is a kernel fileset) -x match_target=true. If you have dependency issues on the log files you will have to add states for autoselect_patches and enforce_dependencies.

As Ismail said, you may have to add other options:
swinstall -s /path..../OpenSSL... -x autoreboot=true \*

Re: System Fault Managment

thanks for the reply,

as i see the document, there is no need for rebooting the server.

where reboot=true?? in the command.

Then you can leave out the "-x autoreboot=true" option.

Hi:

First:

swinstall -p ...

-p Previews an install task by running the session through the analysis phase only.

and review logs from preview installation.
