Table 6-1 Updating Tips



Running Other Commands

During the update process, be careful when running other commands; doing so may cause the commands to function improperly.

All Software Does Not Get Updated

Update-UX updates the HP-UX OS and any software specified in additional software bundles available on the source media or depot. Update-UX may not automatically update software that is not contained in an Operating Environment. In addition, Update-UX may not automatically update optional software bundles that have changed names since the last release.

In addition, software products that are no longer supported on HP-UX 11i v3 may be either automatically removed during the update, or the system may generate messages that warns users that these unsupported software products must be removed before beginning the update process.

In Case of Trouble

The update-ux command returns an error value when it is not successful:

1 - Error during execution; update aborted.

2 - Update aborted via user action (keyboard press)

Messages are recorded in /var/opt/swm/swm.log and /var/adm/sw/update-ux.log.

If you encounter a problem during the update process, review Appendix A for possible solutions.
