Error on Power patch install - failed while apply binary patches to NL

To all;
Working on a 5.5 system. Never patched. Got PP 7 for 5.5, and identified patches. Then went to create tape and got, "Error: HP Patch/ix failed while applying binary patches to the staged copy of the NL in NL.INSTALL.SYS (PMERR 19)." Have looked in the AUTOLOG.INSTALL.SYS and found 2657 lines. File ends with "30 Object files have been copied" and Exits from LINKED.
Any thoughts??
Thanks,
jeff Kubler

Hello Jeff,

Since system has never been patched, have you restored the patchix program and its catalog file (patch000) prior to install PP#7?

Also, what's in the PMLOG file? Any INSTERR error number?

Re: Error on Power patch install - failed while apply binary patches to NL

I restored the PATCH@ files from tape and got the PATCHIX and I believe PATCH000 files.
One of the files stated:
**************INTERNAL ERROR MESSAGE *******************
HP Patch/iX experienced the following library status
RL STATUS.SUBSYS = INSTALLATION TOOLS LIBRARY
RL STATUS.ERROR = 501
The associated error from the catalog is as follows:

Error trying to RUN . (INSTERR #43)
Could not create SOMPATCH process. Createprocess error:


************ HP Patch/iX ERROR MESSAGE **************
ERROR: HP Patch/iX failed to create the stage/tape (PMERR 76).

CAUSE: HP Patch/iX experienced an error while trying to create
the staging area or tape from the "Create [Stage] [Tape]" screen.

ACTION: The actual error that was encountered will be logged in
the STRLIST.INSTALL.SYS, AUTOLOG.INSTALL.SYS, or STAGELOG file.
This is typically an error returned from STORE, SYSGEN, or STAGEMAN
operations related to tape or stage operations.

STRLIST -> for STORE-only tape creation errors.
AUTOLOG -> for CSLT/STORE tape creation errors.
STAGELOG -> for staging area errors.


Patch management was NOT successfully completed.

HP Patch/iX has saved the current environment and will allow
you to recover this environment the next time you run HP Patch/iX.
You simply need to answer "Yes" to the recovery prompt.

Re: Error on Power patch install - failed while apply binary patches to NL

Hello Jeff,

It looks like the SOMPATCH.PUB.SYS file is missing on your system. If that is the case, you may want to restore from the MPE/iX 5.5 FOS tape prior to run Patch/iX again.
