Problems installing VRTScscm (the VERITAS Cluster Server (VCS) Graphical User Interface (GUI))


ERROR: information for "VRTScscm" was not found


It is possible that the errors below will be seen when trying to install VRTScscm (the successor to VRTScsga). What follows is a log of an attempted failed install:

This appears to be an attempt to install the same architecture and version of a package which is already installed. This installation will attempt to overwrite this package.

Using </> as the package base directory.
## Processing package information.
## Processing system information.
72 package pathnames are already properly installed.

WARNING: The / filesystem has 94972 free blocks. The current installation requires 278767027 blocks, which includes a required 150 block buffer for open deleted files. 278672055 more blocks are needed.
WARNING: The / filesystem has 165631 free file nodes. The current installation requires 278766919 file nodes, which includes a required 25 file node buffer for temporary files. 278601288 more file nodes are needed.

Do you want to continue with the installation of <VRTScscm> [y,n,?] q
ERROR: Please enter yes or no.

The error shown above required free file nodes and more blocks, which is clearly incorrect. If similar huge numbers are seen during installation, then it is very likely that the package is already installed. The huge numbers seen above are only ever seen if mistakenly trying to add the package again when it is already installed.

NOTE: Do not get mislead by the error about filespace and inodes.

If in doubt, try the following to see if the GUI package is installed -

# pkginfo -l VRTScscm

If the package is not installed, the following message will be seen:

Therefore, the VRTScscm package can then be installed via pkgadd.
