Want to Package various patch depots into one depot

Hi all,

I've downloaded some HP-UX 11.11 patches required
to install Oracle 10g rel. 1. Of those patches 7 to 8
requires a reboot, I want to do the patch installation
in a single run. I've depot files of all patches.
Is it possible to package all required patch depots
into a single depot/bundle using some utility like
swpackage/swcopy? Pl help.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Want to Package various patch depots into one depot

mkdir /tmp/patches

cd /dir_where_you saved_patches
sh *
for i in PH*.depot
do
swcopy -s $i \* @ /tmp/patches
done

swlist -d @ /tmp/patches to check it.

Re: Want to Package various patch depots into one depot

When you download a patch, there is a file README_hp-ux, and inside it how to create a depot.
working with downloaded files,create a temporary folder copy the hp* to this folder, merge patch_manifest files into one,copy create_depot of any and README_hp-ux.

Hope this helps

Re: Want to Package various patch depots into one depot

Dear RAC,
Thanks

I done as u said. But some patches cannot be bundles because of
dependancies problem.

eg. PHNE_333159

but when I installed it seperately on another machine and this machine it gave no errors.
What may be the problem? Pl help

Dear Zaid

It worked for some patches.

Dear Arun,

Thanks for the link.

Thanks to all of u.

Hi,

Change swcopy as follows

swcopy -s $i -x enforce_dependencies=false \* @ /tmp/patches

Re: Want to Package various patch depots into one depot

Hi Luk,
I tried as u mentioned, but got following errors

Could not contact host "PHCO_27958.depot". Make sure the hostname is correct and an absolute pathname is specified (beginning with "/").

I tried it not using -x flag also but gives the same error.

Re: Want to Package various patch depots into one depot

Its always better to use absolute path than relative path. It seems like, SD can't able to find depot. Try giving -s

Hi Luk,

Got it.

I was using only $i instead of full path name in -s flag.

Thanks a lot it worked.
