AIX fileset error

AIX fileset error

Post by DT » Fri, 04 Jul 2003 00:27:31



Machine Type: 44P
OS: 4.3.3

Recently, I wanted to update the fileset of "bos.rte.printers" to 4.3.3.78,
however, when I try to update the fileset from the smitty menu, it failed
because of the old fileset error.

Below is the status of the fileset:

# lslpp -l |grep bos.rte.printers
  bos.rte.printers          4.3.3.75  BROKEN     Front End Printer Support
  bos.rte.printers           4.3.3.0  COMMITTED  Front End Printer Support

The question is: how can I repair the corrupted old fileset so that I can
update it?

Thank you for very your advise

I believe that "installp -C" is supposed to clean up failed installs.

1. Searching for AIX 4.3.3 fileset

I have installed AIX 4.3.3 on two F50s in our lab.
I am attempting to get the machines to use a tape
library on the SAN to which they are attached.
The AIX boxes see the three DLT drives within the
library, but it fails to recognize the robot arm,
and cfgmgr says I need to install the following
AIX fileset:

devices.fcp.changer

I cannot find this fileset on the 4.3.3 CD set,
nor on the AIX 4.3 Update CD, nor on the Gigabit
Fibre Channel PCI Adapter install CD (we purchased
the IBM 6227 FC adapters with the machines).
Where might it be found?

Thanks.
