How to add software in depot format to ignite server?

I have download some softwares in depot format, and want to add
them in the ignite server.
e.g I have bash depot file under /tmp
/tmp/Bash.depot

From

I tried to use this command.
make_config -s /tmp/Bash.depot -c bash.cfg

always get this error.
ERROR: Depot "/tmp/Bash.depot" does
not exist.

which command should I use?

Thanks

Hi


Use

swreg - register or unregister depots and roots

swreg -l depot /tmp/Bash.depot

Hi,

You first need to register the depot. This could be done by either copying the bash.depot into a central software depot directoty or creating a depot directory for this specific software.

Maybe this link from itrc which is along the same lines would help,

The doc id is KBAN00000092.

Hope this helps.

Thanks a lot for your help.
It works then.

Here is the summary

1. need to register the depot by
swreg -l depot
/var/opt/ignite/depots/Rel_B.11.23/TcshBundle_B.11.23.20.02_HP-UX_B.11.23_IA
+PA.depot


2.
make_config -s /var/opt/ignite/depots/Rel_B.11.23/BashBundle,depot -c
bash.cfg

3. Modify the /var/opt/ignite/INDEX file to include the new bundle
e.g.

"/var/opt/ignite/depots/Rel_B.11.23/bash.cfg"

4. Check the syntax by
instl_adm -T
