What is mean "The kernel will be re-builton the local system " when install ISOIMAGE-ENH

[ Edited ]

Hi ,

 

 

I downloaded GlancePlus as Iso and I tried to mount it with lvcreate but no luck so I choose to install  ISOIMAGE-ENH tool.

 

it went fine and there was no issues . It was on Test , I'm planning to do the same on production servers.

 

 

 

My probelm I saw on message when install ISOIMAGE-ENH " The kernel will be re-built on the local system when install ISOIMAGE-ENH" which scared me .

 

 

what is this message about and it will affect production server?

It means it has to regen the kernel and reboot.

I don't remember doing that when I installed that product but it was long ago.  Perhaps I had a later kernel?

 

If you can't reboot your production system, perhaps you should burn a DVD.

Or reboot your test system and then mount your ISO image and then swcopy the SD bundle off it it or just use swreg and then access it remotely.

Re: What is meant by "The kernel will be re-built" when installing ISOIMAGE-ENH

Thank you for your update . Sorry what you mean By "regen the kernel"

 

 

Yes I can reboot the system . I found many dependencies need to be instaled , is this the reason ?.

 

 

      ISOIMAGE-ENH     ->   B.11.31.06      ISO Image mount Enhancem ^ x               
xx            PHCO_39672       ->   1.0             CDFS mount(1M) cumulativ   x               
xx            PHCO_39673       ->   1.0             mount(1m) patch            x               
xx            PHCO_39674       ->   1.0             umount(1M) cumulative pa   x               
xx            PHCO_39675       ->   1.0             mount_cdfs(1M) man page    x               
xx                                                                             x               
xx                                                        

 

 

How can I use the swcopy ?!!

Exactly.

 

>How can I use the swcopy?

 

Just use swcopy to copy from the mounted ISO to a directory:

swcopy -x enforce_dependencies=false -s /dev/dvd "*" @ /path-to-directory
