Are you current on PAX patches?

Re: make_tape_recovery SYSCMDS error

Hi Leandro,

Looks to me like you may have installed the 11.0 version of Ignite on your 11i system.
Note the diff in the error msg i.e. it's looking for SYSCMDS in the ~/Rel_B11.11 path but your ll command shows you have ~/Rel_B11.00 directory.
Swremove the 11.0 version & swinstall the 11.11 version & you should be OK.

HTH,
Jeff

Re: make_tape_recovery SYSCMDS error

Yes, I've installed the pax patch.
# swlist -l patch | grep -i pax
# PHCO_26422 1.0 Pax Cumulative Patch.

The file is "Ignite-UX-11-00_B.4.1.61_HP-UX_B.11.22_IA+PA.depot". I belive the B.4.1
version has support for 11i. Follows a screenshot of software description in swinstall.

Re: make_tape_recovery SYSCMDS error

Hi (again) Leandro,

I'm not at the office to verify completely, but I remember the bundle actually contains seperate products.
I each for the various OS levels.

Pull up the swinstall GUI & drill down into the bundle & I think you'll see what I mean.

HTH,
Jeff

Re: make_tape_recovery SYSCMDS error

To browse the release notes of your version
it tells like to update the latest PAX Patch.

And ofcourse you have it!

The same problem with Ignite-UX B.3.7.95 version is resolved with the PHSS_27406 patch.

Re: make_tape_recovery SYSCMDS error

Thank's for everybody. I must have done something wrong. I tried the "Microsoft Solution" (unistall everything, download again, reinstall), and it worked. Now everything is ok.

Thnak's again.
