installupdate directory, not link


during TruCluster update 5.1A -> 5.1B we get the following error during the "installupdate"
on the "lead member":
must be directory (not Symbolic Link)
this applies to 4 links (crash, lpd, syslog,
From second member we can see there are 4 links, instead of directories !!
What can we do ??
We wonder about member0 (cluster), the pathes
of member1 and member2 lead to directoies, not links, but "installupdate" checks member0.

Re: installupdate directory, not link

Do the following:

cd /var/cluster/members/member0/adm
rm crash lpd syslog sysman/shutdown
mkdir crash lpd syslog sysman/shutdown
chmod 755 crash lpd syslog sysman/shutdown
chown root:system crash lpd syslog sysman/shutdown

Off you go...with the upgrade.

Re: installupdate directory, not link

The solution was deleting the links and creating directories.
