SA Support tip: SA 10 Upgrade Guide - Installation will fail because it cannot find all the media

There is a known issue with the documentation.  When following the SA10 Upgrade Guide the installation will fail because it cannot find all the media.

 

 

This error is seen:

======

[root@stisalab /]/tmp/SA10/primary/disk001/opsware_installer/hpsa_upgrade.sh

 

 

 

 

You cannot run hpsa_upgrade.sh from /tmp/SA10/primary/disk001/opsware_installer

 

 

Please start with the primary distribution.  Aborting!

=====

 

 

This is because the mount point is wrongly detailed into the documentation.

 

 

 

By changing the default installation paths from

 

 

<mountpoint>/primary/disk001/...

 

 

to

 

 

<mountpoint>/-primary/disk001/...

 

 

The installation is successful.

 

 

Take note of the "-primary" in the correct line, and specially to the "-" sign that precedes the word primary.

 

This is the doc about this:

Hope this helps.

Re: SA Support tip: SA 10 Upgrade Guide - Installation will fail because it cannot find all the medi

Hello,

 

I have the same problem here, but I am not able to crate -primary directory to mount the media there, as we all know the dash (-) is not allowed for the directory name to start with!

mkdir -- "-primary"

The directory name does not have to be "-primary", it just has to END with "-primary".

In other words, the following directories are ALL acceptable:
"hpsa-primary"

"iLikeCake-primary"

"ThisIsRidiculous-primary"

 

Don't forget the new "disk001" requirement with HPSA 10.x now too...  So it would read more like:
"PleaseLetThisWork-primary/disk001"

 

And that's just for the Primary installation disk....

Your Upload disk (Agents & Utilities) needs to be mounted to something like:
"ThisIsOverlyComplicated-upload/disk001"

 

And your Patches get mounted to your version of:
"patchy-patch/disk001"
