update-ux possible problems

Hi!

    I want to update B.11.31.0803 Foundation Operating Environment to latest version of BaseOE. Is it possible? If yes, can it be done without DVD (just copy all files to local disk)?

 

Philipp.

Re: update-ux possible problems

I think you should be able to update, if disk-space and hardware-requirements are ok.

 

You can install from mounted locally mounted  iso-images, using:

Thanks for the answer, Danny! And what about changing the OE from FOE to BOE? I think that it shouldn't be a problem, but just want to be sure.

According the table in the document below, it should be fine:

Re: update-ux possible problems

I'm trying now to mount the iso, but got error:

 

# mount -F cdfs /test/hpux/disk1.iso /cdrom
mount: /test/hpux/disk1.iso is an invalid operand
# swlist -l product ISOIMAGE-ENH
# Initializing...
# Contacting target "dbsrv"...
#
# Target:  dbsrv:/
#

# ISOIMAGE-ENH                  B.11.31.06     ISO Image mount Enhancement
  ISOIMAGE-ENH.Iso-Image-Enh    B.11.31.06     cdfs ISO image mount support
# kcmodule cdfs
Module  State   Cause  Notes
cdfs    loaded  auto   auto-loadable, unloadable
#

 i also checked the md5 of iso - it's ok. What i did wrong?

It appears you haven't loaded the fspd module.

kcmodule fspd=loaded

mount -F cdfs /absolute/path/image.iso /mount/point

Re: update-ux possible problems

Hi!

   the solution worked:

 

# kcmodule fspd
Module  State  Cause  Notes
fspd    auto   best   auto-loadable, unloadable
# kcmodule fspd=loaded
     ==> Update the automatic 'backup' configuration first? y
       * The automatic 'backup' configuration has been updated.
       * Future operations will update the backup without prompting.
       * The requested changes have been applied to the currently
         running configuration.
Module            State   Cause     Notes
fspd    (before)  auto    best      auto-loadable, unloadable
        (now)     loaded  explicit
# mount -F cdfs -orr /test/hpux/disk1.iso /cdrom
#

 and it's mounted now finally.
