Re: error while doing pfs_mount

Hi,

It seems a library issue,

Issue folloeing command to see which lib.s r
required for glance.

# ldd /tmp/glance/glance/glance/opt/perf/bin/glance

and check whether those libraries r available or not.

Re: error while doing pfs_mount

Hi again,

# ldd /tmp/glance/glance/glance/opt/perf/bin/glance
ldd: Invalid file type: "/tmp/glance/glance/glance/opt/perf/bin/glance". 64-bit shared executable or shared library expected.

Santosh,
this utility that i have downloaded is for 11.11 as mentioned on the site.
but my system has 11.00. is it because os this difference the problem exists.

also i read the index file which says this utility is compatible with all versions above 10.x

Re: error while doing pfs_mount

The ISO image contains a swinstall depot.
You're not supposed to run the program from the image directly: the program contains libraries in addition to the executable, and the system won't find the libraries unless the program is installed properly.

Run "swinstall -s /tmp/glance", then select and install the glance plus evaluation version. After this, you should be able to start it with just "glance".

After a successful installation, you can umount /tmp/glance and move the ISO image file elsewhere.

If the ISO image contains software for HP-UX 11.00, archive the image file in case you need it later: HP-UX 11.00 is now out of support and HP may delete the 11.00 downloadables from its web pages at any time, so you may not be able to download it again later.

Re: error while doing pfs_mount

Hi,

Matti seems correct, it should be a depot software.

u can use it only after installing glance depot.

use swinstall to install depot as suggested by Matti.

Re: error while doing pfs_mount

Hello

there isn't ant depot file under /tmp/glance and when i do swinstall -s /tmp/glance i get the folowing error.

A Remote Procedure Call to a daemon has failed. Could not start a management session for ":/tmp/glance". Make sure the host is accessible from the network, and that its daemon, swagentd,
is running.

i checked the swagentd daemonis running

# ps -ef | grep swagentd | grep -v grep
root 402 1 0 Mar 9 ? 6:53 /usr/sbin/swagentd -x rpc_binding_info=ncadg_ip_udp:[2121]

also the system ip and and hostname get resolved.

i have attached the contents of the directories under /tmp/glance

Pl. read the installation info. for the package
from the download site.

Also pl. provide a longlisting of /tmp/glance

# ll /tmp/glance

Re: error while doing pfs_mount

This is some extract from the release notes in the iso image. it seems i have downloaded the wrong package. may be that is the reason i was not able to install it. Thanks anyways.
