Hi Admins,

Re: mounting cdrom



Hi Admins,

I have exported the cdrom using /cdrom -ro,root=hostname and tried to install on remote system but ended up with below error



ERROR: Could not open serial depot file ^â
â â "/cdrom/patch-delivery-27606.depot". Value too large to be â â
â â stored in data type (72). If this file is a tape device, make â â
â â sure a tape is loaded and is not write-protected.

Re: mounting cdrom

You should swcopy the patches to the disk, then you can use swinstall to install it to all the other servers.

Hope this helps!

Re: mounting cdrom

mkdir /tmp/patches
swcopy -s /cdrom/PH******.depot \* @ /tmp/patches
Replace the PH****** with corresponding numeric and letters.
