I have the problem of patch management.
After downloading patches from internet, I try to follow the procedures and add the patches.
Taking PHSS_XXXX as an example :
# sh PHSS_XXXX
# swinstall -s PHSS_XXXX.depot
However, I get the error message with " I/O device error ..."
The installation is abort .
HP version : 11.0

With swinstall -s, try the full path name
Supposing that PHSS_XXX.depot is in /tmp
swinstall -s /tmp/PHSS_XXXX.depot
swinstall -s PHSS_XXXX.depot

is it possible that you have a reference to a cd-rom in /etc/fstab? Put it in comment, and do your swinstall. When finished uncomment it.

If the download was not completed the shell archive would have told you that it was corrupt in some fashion. "Unexpected End of File" comes to mind.
As for the fstab file, it has absolutely NOTHING to do with receiving an I/O error when trying to read a depot!
