Upgrading a client

After trying to locate docs here at HP or on The Google I figure I would ask here.

 

I had DP 6.0 rolled out.  Upgraded the server to 7.0.  A few months pass and now I have to get the clinets up to 7.x as well.

I tried upgrade-that failed.  I tried removing and readding the clinet but it fails faster than I can put in a userid/password.

 

Yes, I can ssh to/from cell server to client.  The hostname comes back as the FQN vis nslookup both from the server and the client.

 

I'd like docs or something to help me get this rolling.   My Cell Manager is HP-UX 11.31.  Clients are mostly all HP-UX as well.  The IBM client systems installed no problem (go figure). 

 

Thanks

 

p.s. yes, I iwll keep digging as well.

Re: Upgrading a client

OK... managed ot find the software and tried to roll it out.

All but the user interface failed:

 

[Critical] <sap-dg.ssmhc.com> User Interface for series hp/sia64/hp-ux-113x: require.dat file missing

[Warning] <sap-dg.ssmhc.com> Update of User Interface failed!

 

Ideas what that might mean?

Re: Upgrading a client

Now I am closer.  Can get everything BUT the userinterface installed.  Can't do it remotely (see above error) and when I try locally I get:

 

(root@sapsndap)# mount sapbck:/omniback/software /tmp_mnt

(root@sapsndap)# clear

(root@sapsndap)# pwd

/tmp_mnt/TD586-15004/LOCAL_INSTALL

(root@sapsndap)# ./omnisetup.sh -server sapbck.ssmhc.com -install cc

The omnisetup.sh script didn't finish last time

Client still has to be installed. (omnicf cc)

The omnisetup.sh script can now continue the unfinished installation

or it can ignore the saved state and start a new one.

If you choose to ignore, the script will erase the saved state

and will process only the command line options

Do you want to continue the unfinished installation? (Y/n)

Resuming (using possible CLI options)...

 

Data Protector version A.07.00 found

Client detected, installed packets: da sap

Setup cannot continue, please insert the media with HP-UX Installation Server

and run the installation script again, without options, it will continue.

(root@sapsndap)# ./omnisetup.sh -server sapbck.ssmhc.com -install cc

The omnisetup.sh script didn't finish last time

Client still has to be installed. (omnicf cc)

The omnisetup.sh script can now continue the unfinished installation

or it can ignore the saved state and start a new one.

If you choose to ignore, the script will erase the saved state

and will process only the command line options

Do you want to continue the unfinished installation? (Y/n)

n

Ignoring saved state...

 

Data Protector version A.07.00 found

Client detected, installed packets: da sap

Setup cannot continue, please insert the media with HP-UX Installation Server

and run the installation script again, without options, it will continue.

 

So regaredless if I choose Y or N and/or try omnisetup after this the user interface will not install.

Re: Upgrading a client

Hi,

 

I would use the installation server (normally installed on the cell server too) to distribute the software to the clients. May be you can concentrate on that and we might help you with that to get it working?

 

Best regards

Dnaiel

Re: Upgrading a client

I figured a way around it.

log on to the client and swremove the old DP

install the software locally

Go back to CM and it magically appears.
