Dear,

I would like to use /usr/dt/bin/dtksh on my HPUX 11.31 server. But it is not installed.

Re: Install dtksh

dtksh is in the CDE bundle. IIRC this isn't a default install on 11.31 now - you can still intsall it off the OE DVDs though. It's in the fileset CDE.CDE-MIN

You really should swcopy the whole fileset and then install that.

Re: Install dtksh

The problem is that the files on the DVD constitute a single depot (rather than a depot per product) so you can't easily just copy off the CDE directory from the DVD...

Do you have a HP-UX system local to you (presumably you do, if you have a DR system at a remote site?)

You can just mount the DVD on the system at your current site and then install remotely using swinstall...

Huh? That's what swcopy does:
swcopy -x enforce_dependencies=false -s /dev/dvd-device CDE.CDE-MIN @ $PWD/CDE-MIN

Then tar up ./CDE.CDE-MIN and use that to swinstall on the target machine.

Re: Install dtksh

Dennis,

yeah I meant copy as in "cp -r /dvdrom/CDE ..." or just tar up a directory on the DVD...

I knw you can swcopy, but got the feeling the poster was asking about a straight copy off the DVD...

Cheers

Re: Install dtksh

Guys,

Thanks for your response.

I was asking direct copy from DVD which is connected in windows to UNIX server. But i can't use this copy for installation.

Thanks & Regards
Shameem.

You absolutely don't want to do that, unless you think you can just copy the one file.

>I know you can swcopy

You must use swcopy, you want to get a good installation with swinstall.

>which is connected in windows to UNIX server.

Is it mounted on a HP-UX box?
I suppose could could mount an ISO image and then use swcopy.

Or you could find dtksh and just copy that.

Yes - that's what I meant - you *can't* do that...
