CD is empty

Hello,

 

When trying to install patches on HP-UX b.11.11 from CD the following message has been received:

 

 

The deport "HOSTNAME:/cdrom/" exists but is currently empty

 

These are the command I used:

 

# ioscan -funC disk

# mkdir /cdrom

# chmod 777 /cdrom

#mount /dev/dsk/c2t0d0 /cdrom

# swinstall -s /cdrom

 

BTW, It worked well with other HP-UX CD.

Also, I can see the CD's content (ll /cdrom).

 

Please advice,

 

Yali

 

 

P.S. this thread has been moved from HP-UX > System Administration to HP-UX > patches - HP Forums Moderator

Hmm, it appears you are starting in the right place.

What do /cdrom/BUNDLE11i.readme & GOLDQPK11i.readme & HWEnable11i.readme say?

Re: CD is empty

There are multiple bundles, you need to specify one, e.g.

 

# swlist -s /cdrom/DIAGNOSTICS/B.11.11


Hope this helps!

Re: Support Plus CD contents

Again, what does the contents of /cdrom/BUNDLE11i.readme & GOLDQPK11i.readme & HWEnable11i.readme say?

(They should explain how to use swlist/swinstall on the various depots.)

Re: CD is empty


The problem is that for each
# swlist -s /cdrom/DIAGNOSTICS/B.11.11 (or other bundle)
command the system require a reboot, so it takes a lot of time.
Can I copy the CD content to a directory on the system and install from there?
What command should I use?

Re: CD is empty

This depot from CD is likely 6 years old now, maybe there are some newer bits out already?

 

However, copy the depots to a single depot, e.g. with

 

# swcopy -s  /cdrom/DIAGNOSTICS/B.11.11

 

and then install them all at once.


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
