make_recovery errors

I get the following errors when creating a make_recovery tape:

WARNING: Incomplete definition for the product "X11", biginning at line 2655. The following attributes are not defined; filesets the filesets contained in the product /etc/ is not expected. : No such file or directory
make_recovery (621) : WARNING, Call to lstat failed.
>ssion denied.> No such file or directory
Make_recovery (621) : WARNING, Call to lstat failed.
error: `newline oron: unknown host denied. No such file or directory

it goes on from here for another 6 lines with the lstat failed. Can anyone tell me what is going on here? I dont know what "X11" is so I dont think that I use it.

Re: make_recovery errors

Do the following:
swlist -l fileset X11 | grep X11

X11 B.10.20 HP-UX X Window Software
#X11 B.11.00 HP-UX X Window Software

Note the two entries for X11 remove the old one by doing the following:

swmodify -u X11,r=B.10.20

Re: make_recovery errors

Ted,

Anthony is correct. The problem lies with the X11 definitions and has nothing to do with make_recovery. You might find that a simple swlist will fail with the same error.
swmodify will remove the reference to X11 and correct this problem.

Re: make_recovery errors

I ran the command that you gave me and got the following error message:
WARNING: Incomplete definition for the product "X11", beggining at the line 2655.
The following attributes are not defined:
filesets the filesets contained in the product.
ERROR: Cannot delete the definition for product X11 from the target "/". The product is not empty, it still contains filesets.
ERROR: The selected software was not modified. All of the specified modifications are invalid. See above.
I am running 10.20
There was no line that said #X11 B.11.00 HPUX X Windows software

Re: make_recovery errors

Ted,

The previous replies assumed that you were running HP-UX 11.

Try the following:-

swlist -l fileset X11 | grep X11

If you get the following:-

X11 B.10.01 HP-UX X Window Software
# X11 B.10.20 HP-UX X Window Software
X11.MKFONTDIR B.10.20 Utility for making fonts
X11.MOTIF12-SHLIB B.10.20 Motif 1.2 shared libraries

Then you need to remove the old (non 10.20) version (which is empty) with:

swmodify -u X11,r=B.10.01

Hope this helps,
John

Re: make_recovery errors

Ted,
The command that was given as an example was:
# swmodify -u X11,r=B.10.20

You need to run swlist and modify it for what is returned by your system.

For example, on my diag machine, I received the following:
# swlist -l fileset |grep X11
# X11 B.10.01 HP-UX X Window Software
# X11 B.10.20 HP-UX X Window Software

So, my swmodify command would read:
# swmodify -u X11,r=B.10.01
as it is the 10.01 entry that is causing the problem.
