rebuild old kit from cd to disk

Hi,

I need to install an old perl kit 5.6.1 that seem not more available, I have the original cd ,an application software march2003,  and have to install it on a remote machine. I attempt to use swcopy but it close with errors like " cannot find file ...." and really this file is not found under the cd path. I'm sure the cd is ok because I have installed it on a local machine with success.

My question is:

How I can move the entire cd on the remote machine ? using a tar ? using NFS an a recoursive copy?

I would not use the network in the installation phase to avoid disconnection problems , than the kit should be on the local disk.

Thanks

Shalom,

 

Ideas:

 

1) use swpackage to create it as a tape depot. Then just sftp/ftp the one file across.

2) tar will work. swreg -l depot <full path> at the other end to install.

By doing what exactly?

 

You should inspect the CD with for example

 

# swlist -s /cdrom

 

and once you found it, use swcopy to copy it to the server, then swinstall to install.


Hope this helps!
