Re: Codeword file location


I agree with what Rainer suggested .... /var/adm/sw/.codewords.

But what type of codeword are you looking for?

Re: Codeword file location

This thread sort of trailed off, but I'd like to pick it up because it addresses a current question of mine. I checked the /var/adm/sw/.codewords files on two of our critical systems, but they are both empty.

I'd like to round up the code words for all products installed on these systems, since our collection of paperwork isn't as complete as it could be. If I need to recover a system and all I have are the yellow license certificates, that doesn't do me much good.

Is there a central location (other than /var/adm/sw/.codewords) where this information resides, or is it scattered all over the place depending on the product in question?
