Re: Could not find any valid "cfg" entries in the INDEX file

Please check nfs is running on the server and client or not (ps -ef | grep -i nfs*) otherwise start nfs.core nfs.server and nfs.clinet in Ignite server and nfs.core and nfs.client in client machine.

 

If you still facing this problem then remove the old depot and re-install it.

 

# swremove IGNITE

# swremove Ignite-UX

 

Then

 

# swinstall -s /var/opt/ignite/package/Ignite-UX-11-ALL_C.7.11.444.depot IGNITE Ignite-UX-11-11 Ignite-UX-11-23 Ignite-UX-11-31

 

# /opt/ignite/lbin/pkg_rec_depot

Re: Could not find any valid "cfg" entries in the INDEX file

Hi,

as the message says - you don't have a cfg entry in the INDEX file.
There should be one from installation.
Something like in the attachment .... (this is from 11.11 server - see also the hints in the comment)

[edit](file has to be named INDEX only - can`t post it with that name)

 

HTH

Re: Could not find any valid "cfg" entries in the INDEX file

Please re-install the entire depot. First remove it with swremove command and then again install it (swinstall)

 

If possible please create a separate LVM for /var/opt/ignite (30GB or higher) and then install the whole Ignite depot.
