problem with installing PHSS_36871

Hi,
I am installing PHSS_36871 on my HP-UX 11.31 machine but getting this error while analysis phase

The patch fileset "PHSS_36871.SMH-RUN,r=1.0" may only be installed upon a previously installed base fileset. The specification for this base fileset is "SysMgmtHomepage.SMH-RUN,fr=A.2.2.6.2,v=HP". Since there is no fileset on the target or selected from the source which matches this specification, fileset "PHSS_36871.SMH-RUN,r=1.0" will be excluded.

also patch_match_target for this patch fails.

can anybody tell how to resolve this issue?
thanks

Hello Tina,

check whether the mentioned fileset is present on the system:

swlist -l fileset | grep SysMgmtHomepage.SMH-RUN

If it is not there, then you cannot install the mentioned patch before you install the SMH product itself.

Hi,

This error says you need to have "SysMgmtHomepage.SMH-RUN,fr=A.2.2.6.2,v=HP "fileset in order to install PHSS_36871.

That fileset is related to HP system management product it looks. So you need to install that product first then install the patch.
Best wishes,

Ganesh.

Install the System Management Homepage version A.2.2.6.2 as that is what this patch is for.

If you have a version of SMH other than A.2.2.6.2 then this patch does NOT apply to you.

Hi Tina:

The message couldn't be much clearer. It says that you do *not* have a base fileset upon which you can apply a particular patch.

You could use 'swlist -l fileset' and 'grep' in cases like this to confirm to your satisfaction that you lack what you need to apply a patch.

Regards!

Re: problem with installing PHSS_36871

From the release notes, it is clear that the patch is for HP System Management Homepage (SMH).

Patch Description: 11.31 HP System Management Homepage A.2.2.6.2

Hence to install this patch, you need the base package installed. If you don't have / want SMH, you can skip this patch. Else, install SMH first and then attempt the installation of this patch.
