swinstall target selection problem

Hi All,

I am currently working on HPUX 11.23. I have a problem with swinstall.

Whenever I revoke TUI interface using swinstall it gives me a window to select the target first. Once I selct the target as my local host, it allows me to select the soruce window. Usually, when I use swinstall in other servers, it allows me to select source selection.

How can I get rid of the target selection window for the local host

Thank you,
Ravi

Re: swinstall target selection problem

just learned, look for a file named

/var/adm/sw/.sdkey

Hope this helps!

Re: swinstall target selection problem

Hi,


2) swinstall, swcopy , and swremove have enhanced GUI interfaces for
remote operations. Enable the enhanced GUIs by creating the
.sdkey file on the controller. Use this command:

touch /var/adm/sw/.sdkey

NOTE: You can also set up remote access by using swacl directly on the
remote machines to grant root or non-root access to users from the
controller system.

Man "swinstall"
