Mirror-UX not visible even though unlocked ?

I have an software application CD for HP-UX 11iv1 and 2 codeword for mirror-ux, and system accepts the codeword(s9 when I enter as new codeword via swinstall without any error, but related software B2491BA doesn't come up, and when I search it I cannot find it in the list.

My question is that when I go to directly to CD B2491BA directory,it seems empty ?? is it normal ? also after codeword entry ,should it be visible in the list ?

YOu need to make sure that the code words you are installing are actually applicable to the media that you have.  The codewords for media from Dec. 2006 will not work for Dec. 2009 media.

yes this is version difference issue as Patrick stated , I solved like this;

 

command line solution is ,

# swinstall -x allow_downdate=true -x allow_incompatible=true -s /SD_CDROM/B2491BA

 

sd-ux solution is to  go swlist -i ,then 

options ,then

select "allow installation of incompatible software"

>>select "allow installation of incompatible software"

 

That is not a smart thing to do!

 

What version of HP-UX are you running?  What version of HP-UX is the Mirror software for?

 

I absolutely DO NOT recommend trying to run an incompatible version of MirrorDisk/UX.  I think you are putting your system at risk!
