To install HP SMH and other HP Applications, you must have root privileges. These instructions assume you are installing from a DVD.

  1. Mount the Applications DVD. To install software from the Applications DVD, you must mount the DVD as a file system that HP-UX 11i can access:

    1. Determine the DVD device name.

      Use the ioscan -funC disk command to list disk devices, including the DVD devices.

    2. Create a mount point for the Applications DVD, if one does not yet exist.

      The mount point is a directory that HP-UX uses as an access point for the DVD. Often a /cdrom directory is used. If this directory does not exist, create it using the mkdir command.

    3. Use the mount command to mount the DVD.

      Specify the DVD device name and mount point. For example, the following command mounts the /dev/dsk/c1t0d0 device as the /cdrom directory:

      mount /dev/dsk/c1t0d0 /cdrom

      See the mount(1M) manpage for details.

  2. To determine which products and versions are on your system, use the swlist command: /usr/sbin/swlist -l product

  3. Use swinstall to install software from the Applications DVD.

    The following example uses swinstall to install software from the source mounted at /cdrom: /usr/sbin/swinstall -s /cdrom bundlename

    See the swinstall(1M) manpage for details.

  4. Select and install software from the Applications DVD.

    The swinstall program has an interface for selecting and installing software from the DVD.

  5. Unmount and eject the Applications DVD.

    You must unmount the DVD before you can eject it from the DVD-ROM drive. The DVD is automatically unmounted whenever the server reboots.

    Use the umount command to unmount the DVD. For example, umount /cdrom unmounts the /cdrom file system. See the umount(1M) manpage for details.

TIP: After the installation is complete, you can start using HP SMH immediately.
