Online JFS software installation requires reboot or not ?

Hi ,

Just wanted to know whether we need reboot for installing online JFS for our 11iv2 servers ( 2 nodes ) which are in serviceguard cluster.

We have purchased online jfs licenses.

Version is OnlineJFS01           4.1.008        Online features of the VxFS File System.

Re: Online JFS software installation requires reboot or not ?

I believe it does but you can check for yourself. Just run swinstall with the preview option:

 

swinstall -p -s /path_to/OnlineJFS.depot "*"

 

If a reboot is required, swinstall will report that requirement. swinstall will never reboot for any package or patch unless you add the explicit option that reboot is allowed.
