icap upgrade requires reboot?

Hi people, I'm planning to upgrade iCAP to its latest version. I would like to know if below depots require a reboot.

I've read installation instructions for each, but it doesn't mention a reboot.

B9073BA_B.11.23.09.02.00.07_HP-UX_B.11.23_IA_PA.depot

WBEMSvcs_A.02.09_HP-UX_B.11.23_IA_PA.depot

nParProvider_B.23.01.07.05_HP-UX_B.11.23_IA_PA.depot

Thanks in advance.

If ain't mention a reboot " No worries" ,

you install with "swinstall" command

Examples :-

# swinstall -s /var/adm/crash/B9073BA_B.11.23.09.02.00.07_HP-UX_B.11.23_IA_PA.depot

#swinstall -s \*
You may use various options of -x like mount_all_filesystems, auto_reboot

Man swinstall
Problems are common to all, but attitude makes the difference

Hello,

This is a good habit. Always read the installation instructions before you actually perform that installation.

So if you read something on that document, you should trust that.

Re: icap upgrade requires reboot?

Hi,
For this 3 product, no problem. Like Jupinder write
swlist -l fileset -a is_reboot -s depot_name
give you the info
see man 4 sd for more information about is_reboot and others.
But, in some case for example if you do
swlist -a is_reboot -l fileset FibrChanl-00 @depot
I got false, when I do it without depot so directly on my system I got false too, but when I try to remove it, I need to put autoreboot=true because some KRN modules obviously are attach to the system.
So be careful.

Re: icap upgrade requires reboot?

Hi,
Thanks Dennis. I try
# swlist -l fileset -a is_reboot -a dynamic_module FibrChanl-00
FibrChanl-00.FC-TACHYON-TL.FC-TL-KRN false td

I can not swremove FibrChanl-00 because it's attach to DKLM
Now I do
# kcmodule td
Module State Cause Notes
td loaded explicit loadable, unloadable

I put it unloaded with
# kcmodule td=unloaded

And now I swremove it
For the future, I will trust in -a is_reboot -a dynamic_module

Thanks a lot
