Installation failures

Post by willemgrooters » Fri Dec 31, 2021 9:34 am

After upgrading my DS10 to VSI OpenVMS, I installed a number of layered products to upgrade the HP software I had installed on this systems. Most were fine, but some failed: some in install, others in IVP:

Availability manager:

Code: Select all

Execution phase starting ...

The following product will be installed to destination:
    VSI AXPVMS AVAIL_MAN_ANA_SRVR V3.2     DISK$AXP084:[VMS$COMMON.]

Installing this kit requires a Data Collector kit at or above version V3.2


   The VSI Availability Manager Data Analyzer and Server kit requires
   installation of a version of the Data Collector kit at or above version V3.2.

   Please refer to the product release notes or installation guide for details
   on meeting this requirement.

Code: Select all

   I don't believe that I use any of those products, so I know nothing,
but evidence suggests that I did install CXML.

   What happens if you say "NO"?

   I took no useful notes, and I remember nothing, but, around here:

ALP $ prod show prod cxml
------------------------------------ ----------- ---------
PRODUCT                              KIT TYPE    STATE
------------------------------------ ----------- ---------
VSI AXPVMS CXML V5.2-1               Full LP     Installed

1 item found

ALP $ dire /date sys$startup:cxml*

Directory SYS$COMMON:[SYS$STARTUP]

CXML$STARTUP.COM;1   21-AUG-2002 16:22:55.16

ALP $ type sys$startup:CXML$STARTUP.COM
$   !***************************************************************************
$   !
$   !   Copyright 2000 Compaq Computer Corporation
[...]

   So, apparently, I got it installed, and it's using an old
CXML$STARTUP.COM.  Whether that's an old-old (existing) file or a
new-old (from-kit) file, I don't know, but to me it looks old.
DIRE /FULL:

CXML$STARTUP.COM;1            File ID:  (67767,49,0)

   I wouldn't call the "conflicting requirements" message helpful, but
if it's complaining about that file, then I might try renaming the old
one before retrying the PRODUCT INSTALL.
