running update-ux from 2 iso depots on Ignite Server

Goal: update an 11.31 Sept 09 system to 11.31 Mar 12 from 2 depots on an Ignite server.

 

I've got the 2 HP-UX 11.31 March 2012 VSE iso files loaded as 2 registered depots on my ignite server (using dd of iso images into 2 separate LVs).

 

Here are the registered depots on the Ignite Server:

 

/dev/vg00/HA-OE_Core_1_2_BA930
                   7485814 7485814       0  100% /HA-OE_Core_1_2_BA930

 

/dev/vg00/VSE-OE_Core_2_2_BA929
                   3500676 3500676       0  100% /VSE-OE_Core_2_2_BA929

 

On the client, I've run update-ux pointing to the first depot (the first DVD, essentially):

 

update-ux -i -s 192.168.XX.XX:/VSE-OE_Core_1_2_BA929 Update-UX

 

The update runs perfectly, but it doe not prompt for the 2nd DVD (2nd depot in my case).

 

Does the update possible just not need the 2nd iso image or do I need to somehow get both iso images into the same depot?

Re: running update-ux from 2 iso depots on Ignite Server

Hi Mike,

 

Running update-ux can be done from one depot only, you have to copy all the DVD depot contents into one mount point & update-ux will take care of this automatically. If you have two DVD, you have to copy all bundles into one mountpoint, using swcopy  , then to run update-ux

 

Also further you can specify more bundle along with the update-ux command syntax:

 

For Example: 

# update-ux -s  192.168.XX.XX:/VSE-OE_Core_mount_point   HP-UX11i T1335BC   

 

You can not install from two separate mount point, 

 

Remember to install update-ux software first for 11.31 (From the 11.31 depot) before running update-ux session.

Using: # swinstall -s /VSE-OE_Core_mount_point  update-ux 

Then run update-ux  and it will go smooth.  update-ux will finish after installing all filesets & after one reboot.
