Problem installing CMS and MMS

I am attempting to install CMS and MMS on an Integrity. I have the license PAKs installed for both.
I can see the kit exists on the layered products media ( DNA0:[DECSET128.KIT] ). However, when I run VMSINSTAL, I get the following error message:
%VMSINSTAL-E-NOPRODS
The command I used was:
@SYS$UPDATE:VMSINSTAL DECSET128 DNA0:[DECSET128]

This is straight out of the online documentation. Anyone have any suggestions as to what I may be doing wrong, or an alternate means to get at the products? - Thanks much!

Re: Problem installing CMS and MMS

For starters, I'd get the (full-kit)
DECSET128 ECO2 package, and use that,
instead.

ftp://ftp.itrc.hp.com/openvms_patches/layered_products/i64/

> I can see [...]

My psychic powers are too weak to tell me
what, exactly, you see there. I normally
run VMSINSTAL interactively, and answer the
questions, and I often guess wrong about
what the thing wants for a product name. I'd
probably start with DECSET, and see what
happens.

Perhaps "DNA0:[DECSET128.KIT]"?

But I'd still fetch the ECO kit, and use
that.

Trust no one, I always say. The experts have
left the building(s).

Re: Problem installing CMS and MMS

Please try:

@SYS$UPDATE:VMSINSTAL DECSET128 DNA0:[DECSET128.KIT]

If this is in the documenation, feedback to HP may be in order.

If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over? Reach me at first_name + "." + last_name at sysmanager net

Hi,

>> @SYS$UPDATE:VMSINSTAL DECSET128 DNA0:[DECSET128]

In the above command second parameter is the product name that you want to install and the third parameter is location of the kit (i.e. path name.). You need to specify the complete path name i.e. DNA0:[DECSET128.KIT].

Hi Scot,

>> ( DNA0:[DECSET128.KIT] ).
>> However, when I run VMSINSTAL, I get the following error message:
>> %VMSINSTAL-E-NOPRODS

As the kit is present in the location "DNA0:[DECSET128.KIT]", you need to
specify the same path in the VMSINSTAL command.

The command should be -
$@SYS$UPDATE:VMSINSTAL DECSET128 DNA0:[DECSET128.KIT]

>> This is straight out of the online documentation
Does the documentation say "DNA0:[DECSET128.KIT]" or "DNA0:[DECSET128]" ?

If the online documentation has the wrong path then its something that needs
to be changed.

Re: Problem installing CMS and MMS

I got assistance from Dave Sullivan (HP) on this one. Turns out the command needed to be:

@VMSINSTAL decseteco1128 dna0:[decset128.kit]

The kit name was DECSET128, but the contents on the distribution media were for ECO1 of the product. Hence, VMSINSTAL could not match the kit name (DECNET128.KIT) with the file names (DECNETECO1128.*) and I got the %VMSINSTAL-E-NOPRODS response.

Thanks everyone for assistance!

Which is why it would have been helpful to
show us what you saw, instead of only "I can
see the kit".
