Hi Admins,

And please tell me how to retrieve a single depot from bundle

Quick response will be appreciated!!

Re: fileset installation

to see the required fileset on the depot

swlist -l fileset -s

identify the fileset and install it with


swinstall -s /



The dependencies for the fileset will be marked for installation by default

You do not need to copy the .depot file is your agent is running on that server. You can have a server with all your .depot files and runn the appropriate daemons and you simply swinstall from that host (use hostname:/path_to_depot_depot.depot).

Re: fileset installation

" is your agent" to be read as "if your agent"

And when I say "agent" I mean swagentd.

/sbin/init.d/swagentd start

(if not allready running: ps-e |grep swagentd)

This keeps a log file in: /var/adm/sw/swagentd.log if you have to troubleshoot the connection problems.

Re: fileset installation

if your depot is register on that host you can install it from the any of the host. there is no need to copy .

Re: fileset installation

Just to add to Horia's suggestion

in order to install software from remote server, you need to have registered depot

You will not be able to install from a .depot "file" remotely. For that you need to create a depot out of that ".depot file" (eg PHKL_xxyy.depot)

swcopy -x enforce_dependencies=false -s /tmp/PHKL_xxyy.depot \* @ /tmp/testdepot

then register it with
swreg -l depot @ /tmp/testdepot


then you can install from that depot from a remote machine


swinstall -s :/tmp/testdepot

Re: fileset installation

You can use swcopy to copy subsets of a depot:
swcopy -x enforce_dependencies=false -s /tmp/foo.depot fileset1 fileset2 \
@ /tmp/testdepot

And your source could be a registered directory depot on another system.
