Too few products in swinstall

Hi,
I have a problem with swinstall, when I try swlist -l product -s /cdrom then I see about 70 products and when I run swinstall I can see only 15 products. Why I can't install other products?

Hi,

Check if the others products reqires a codeword to be installed. You can't see the products as long as you don't enter the codeword.
There is a table_of_content on the cdrom.

Hi Tomek,

The most probable reason you can only install 15 products is that the rest of them were excluded from the swinstall selection. One reason for this could be that the products are already installed. But to get a better picture of why they were excluded, check the swagent.log file.

Thanks for help, I thought that I must enter codeword later.

Re: Too few products in swinstall

hi,

definitely some products on ur CD will have code word, from the command line it shows all products, but when u invoke swinstall it will show products only that are not having code word. if u have code word u can give through Actions and add code word.

Hi,there
I think another reason is software version incompatible. You can try this:
#swinstall -s /cdrom
Select "Options -> Change Options"
Make "Allow installation of lower version than current" and "Allow installation of incompatible software" checked.

Hope to be useful.
