Re: how to install software depot from a server

Hi Binu,

You can keep the depot in one server and register it using #swreg -l depot

After that you can use this network depot to install on remote clients using

#swinstall -s depotserver:/depot path.

But the only problem here is network should not be disturbed during the installation. If so we will end up in issue. That is why it is preferred to copy the depot locally and do the installation

I have done network installation many times and never faced any issues.
Best wishes,

Ganesh.

Re: how to install software depot from a server

Shalom,

If the intended target servers are Ignite clients, then the Ignite server can push the depot installation out to any clients.

This can be set up via the Ignite GUI.

Ignite works both ways. It can provide depots for remote installation or push is possible.

Re: how to install software depot from a server

In the server, you can run
swlist -l depot
to get the depot list in the server, then you can use it for swinstall.

I think you also need a full path for the depot, which will be shown in swlist -l depot.
