Re: swinstall

Exact output from the command would be more helpful.

You must also specify the product(s) that you want to install from that bundle. If you want to install everything you can try:

swinstall -s prodA:/var/tmp/ \*

That is a \* after the bundle name.

Try that and post the exact output or the log from the command.

Hi Rkumar,

Check the depot 1st by listing the depots and then try to install,

>>Listing Software from a Remote server
=====================================

#swlist -d @prodA:/var/tmp

Eg.
#swlist -d @xyz.usa.hp.com:/hpvl_depot/ignite/Rel_B.11.23

>>Installing Software from a Remote server
=======================================

#swinstall -x autoreboot=true -s prodA:/var/tmp
Eg.
#swinstall -x autoreboot=true -s xyz.usa.hp.com:/hpvl_depot/ignite/Rel_B.11.23 T1335BC

Re: swinstall

Hi rkumar,

you need to specify the bundle name to install. try doing swlist first as

# swlist -s prodA:/var/tmp/

Now, select the bundle name from the output list. Then, do

# swinstall -s prodA:

if you want to install all then do,

# swinstall -s prodA: \*

Thanks

Re: swinstall

Hi,

try using swlist to figure out what the real depot path is:

from ProdB, run:

swlist -l depot -s prodA


That will show you all the depots registerd on prodA

I would suggest you don't fall into the SD trap of having N ways to do things. Simply use -s:
swlist -s prodA:/var/tmp
