Service guar 11.19 install from tar file

I have downloaded service guard sw product 11.19 for HP_UX 11.31 from HP DSPP (Developer & solution partner program) web site.

The file downloaded is a tar file, not depot file: Serviceguard-11.31-A.11.19.00sw.tar

How can I to install serviceguard tar file ?

Swinstall need a depot file.

Thanks

Re: Service guar 11.19 install from tar file

Did you try swinstall already? The sw tools don't care about the file prefix, so try this or have a look inside the tar.

Hope this helps!

Shalom,

I would only use SG from a depot file provided by HP software.

tar -tvf the tar file, maybe there is a depot in there.

Re: Service guar 11.19 install from tar file

Hi:

.depot is a tar format. You have 2 ways:

1) tar -xvf in a directory
1.1) swreg -l depot
1.2 swinstall -s

other way:
rename tar file as .depot and make a swreg -l depot
swinstall the file .depot

Hi,

Did you tried to untar the file?.
# tar -xvf Serviceguard-11.31-A.11.19.00sw.tar

This will give you the depot file, from which you can start the swinstall session.

If ur getting any error, try to download the file in depot format itself.

>The file downloaded is a tar file, not depot file:

How do you know? You should use swlist to check:
swlist -s $PWD/Serviceguard-11.31-A.11.19.00sw.tar

Internally a tape depot looks like a tar file. The depot may also be named as .tar since some browsers don't know what to do with .depot.

>Roberto: 1) tar -xvf in a directory

Ack, don't do that! The proper command is swcopy to create (and register) a directory depot.
