Error installing PCSI file - TNF error

Have you found this kind of error with a .pcsi file? I've downloaded a pcsi file on binary mode but i tried run, this error appeared:

%PCSI-E-READERR, error reading $1$DGA10:[tmp]IBM-AXPVMS-MQCLIENT-V0510--1.PCSI;1
-DDIS-E-TNF, invalid element syntax
%PCSI-E-S_OPFAIL, operation failed
%PCSIUI-E-ABORT, operation terminated due to an unrecoverable error condition

I followed the instructions from the provider (unzip "-V" file.zip) an HP'S Ask the Wizard instructions, but the results is the same.

If you have one idea, pls help me with this. thank you a lot,

Eduardo

Re: Error installing PCSI file - TNF error

There is no "-V" needed on an unzip.

That's either a corrupt kit, or you might not have a prerequisite PCSI patch kit installed on the system.

It is quite possible that the folks that created the kit forgot to include the "-V" option; that's where the -V is expected.

Given you have a provider, please ask them for help here.

Re: Error installing PCSI file - TNF error

Thanks a lot hoff. I've been looking completely the file, even the record characteristics and only one command was the key. I compared this mistake pcsi with others ok and I founded some differeces like record format and attributes. For that reason, I follwed a previous command for setup these attribs given for yours:

>>> set file /attrib=(RFM:FIX,MRS:8192,LRL:8192,RAT:NONE) ERROR.PCSI

On the file ERROR.PCSI:
-- Record format: Fixed lenght 8192 byte records
-- Record attributes: none

I wrote one command for extract an release_notes and it works!

>>>PRODUCT EXTRACT release_notes MQCLIENT /file=notas.txt

The following product has been selected:
XXX XXXX MQCLIENT V5.10 Layered Product
Do you want to continue? [YES] N

So, I wrote the correct sentences with product install with no problems.

>>>PRODUCT INSTALL MQCLIENT /VERSION=5.10 /LOG/TRACE

The following product has been selected:
XXX XXXX MQCLIENT V5.10 Layered Product
Do you want to continue? [YES] YES

%PCSIUI-I-SUCINSTALL, INSTALL operation completed successfully

Thanks for your time and give me more ideas, good luck

Re: Error installing PCSI file - TNF error

Which certainly implies that whomever packed that file into a zip archive didn't use zip "-V" to do it.

If you got that from IBM directly, then they have a bug in their kitting, and you'll want to discuss this with MQ support.

If that kit was acquired from a third-party, then all bets are off. That PCSI kit might not even contain MQ, or the version of MQ within that might have been modified to, for instance, steal your data.

Re: Error installing PCSI file - TNF error

Old versions of PCSI cannot handle non-fixed 8192 record length files, newer versions can. Install the latest PCSI kit and you're set.
