Re: swinstall error failed Disk Space Analysis for PHSS_35385 linker patch

when you go to the disk_space tab in the swinstall gui, what filesystem does it complain about?

how much it says it needs ?
Windows?, no thanks

Re: swinstall error failed Disk Space Analysis for PHSS_35385 linker patch

Why did the Disk Space Analysis fail?
When you "press the "Disk Space..." button." what did you get? Your log file is scrambled.

You need to use command line swinstall to install the patch, not sam, so we don't get unhelpful junk:
swinstall -x mount_all_filesystems=false -s $PWD/PHSS_35385.depot \*

Re: swinstall error failed Disk Space Analysis for PHSS_35385 linker patch

Hi Johnson,

You can always look into /var/adm/sw/swagent.log which will provide the filesystem space issues if any..

Can you provide the tail portion of /var/adm/sw/swagend.log ?
Best wishes,

Ganesh.

Re: swinstall error failed Disk Space Analysis for PHSS_35385 linker patch

Hi Johnson,


cant say really as the Disk analysis shows but are there any big open files on /var/ and/or /usr that is not reflecting in here.

as an alternative could you try installing the Superseeding patches for PHSS_35385

that is PHSS_38154 or PHSS_39077.


though nothing seems to be coming in the swagentd logs as being generated speciafically for the Space Analysis.(or might be i Overlooked!!)


as evident from the Logs there is no dependency issue as the dependant patch is already on the system

Re: swinstall error failed Disk Space Analysis for PHSS_35385 linker patch

What you attached above is the swagentd.log file. This does not show the errors. You need to look in the swinstall.log file and find "failed Disk Space Analysis" text and see what else is mentioned in there.

Re: swinstall error failed Disk Space Analysis for PHSS_35385 linker patch

Hi Johnson,

You need to provide the swagent.log not swagentd.log. It's typo on my previous post.

Provide the portion which descripes the PHSS_35385 installation logs.

Re: swinstall error failed Disk Space Analysis for PHSS_35385 linker patch

I wonder why the var filesystem shows up with two slashes " //var " in the swinstal screen. Check the bdf output and /etc/fstab to see if there is a problem. Multiple slashes in a path string are treated as one and you can still navigate the filesystem but if you have two slashes in /etc/fstab, swinstall might get confused.

Re: swinstall error failed Disk Space Analysis for PHSS_35385 linker patch

Simply tell swinstall to mind its own business:
swinstall -x enforce_dsa=false -x mount_all_filesystems=false -s $PWD/PHSS_35385.depot \*

Unfortunately this isn't something to do lightly. TTr may have the solution?

Re: swinstall error failed Disk Space Analysis for PHSS_35385 linker patch

I notice that your log says it is dependent on

NOTE: The software "PHSS_35385,r=1.0,a=HP-UX_B.11.11_32/64,v=HP" was
successfully marked, but it depends on the following software
items which could not be found in the source. However, these
items may already be in the target. This will be checked
during the Analysis Phase:
PHKL_29243.CORE2-KRN,fa=HP-UX_B.11.11_32 |
PHKL_29243.CORE2-KRN,fa=HP-UX_B.11.11_64

Please check the log.

Re: swinstall error failed Disk Space Analysis for PHSS_35385 linker patch

Hi Johnson,

Dependency must be installed. You have a option(enforce_dependency=false) to bypass dependencies but it is not advisable.

System or application will not behave as we expected if we ignore dependencies.

Do you have vPars?, if not, you probably can ignore it and schedule the patch for later.

>why does my swinstall fails at Disk space Analysis?

That's a good question. Have you tried "-x enforce_dsa=false"?

Re: swinstall error failed Disk Space Analysis for PHSS_35385 linker patch

You may want to install the latest swinstall patch: PHCO_38226

>Can please let me know how to ignore the dependencies?

(The probably was referring to what happens if you ignore dependencies, if you ignore it you may not be hosed. :-)

As mentioned by Ganesan, just add:
-x enforce_dependency=false

Make sure you install PHKL_29243 on your next downtime.

It seems fine except for a slight typo:

-x enforce_dependencies=false -s $PWD/PHSS_35385.depot \*
