Re: Rsync configuration on hp-ux 11i.v2

Hi,


There is not a whole lot of information to work with...

When running any of the swinstall commands, did you get any error/warning messages? Is there anything in the swinstall.log?

You are saying: "it does not seem to work"? What do you exactly mean by this?

Where did you download the rsync depot from? It does not seem like you got it from http://software.hp.com as the depot name seems to differ...

So try to download the depot from the following webpage:
https://h20392.www2.hp.com/portal/swdepot/displayProductInfo.do?productNumber=HPUXIEXP1123

The installation instructions can be found on the actual download page.

Hi,

I guess that you have download rsync and dependencies (gettext libiconv popt) from HP Porting and Archiving Centre, i.e:
http://hpux.connect.org.uk/hppd/hpux/Networking/Admin/rsync-3.0.7/

Then -with swinstall- you are installed all dependencies and rsync sucessfully, aren't you? All of them must be installed under /usr/local directory. Could you confirm this?

Hi Chancellor,

Yesterday I can't answer you because the forum's access was down.

You must update manually the path to binary and manuals files locations.
As I've said the default location of these products is /usr/local directory. The look inside and identifies for each product (rsync gettext libiconv popt) the directories that contain binary and manuals files (ussually /bin and /manuals, may vary). Then supose this case for rsync product:
Product homedir=/usr/local/rsync
Binary files dir=/usr/local/rsync/bin
Manuals file dir=/usr/local/rsync/manuals

In /etc directory you have the PATH and MANPATH files, you must update these files with the following path info:
PATH file: the paths to binary files.
MANPATH: the paths to manuals files.
Keep on mind that each path inside these files is separated by a delimeter character ":". This is an easy task but you must be careful, any damage of these files will produce undesirable behavior on your system. If you prefer, do a copy of them before update them.

Finally start a new session to feel the changes, and try with "man rsync" or with a binary harmless as "rsync -h".

I hope that be usefull for you.

Rgds.
