    Unable to install EMC PowerPath 6.0P3 on Solaris 11.3 (0.5.11-0.175.3.28.0.4.0)

    Gonzalo Lucena

      PowerPath 6.0P3 have a dependency check to package shell/ksh

       

      # pkg install -g /var/share/pkg/repositories/solaris/ EMCpower

      Creating Plan (Solver setup): /

      pkg install: No matching version of system/EMCpower can be installed:

        Reject:  pkg://emc.com/system/EMCpower@6.0.0.3.0-1

        Reason:  No version for 'require' dependency on shell/ksh@0.5.11,5.11-0.175.0.0.0.2.1 can be found

       

      Package shell/ksh was removed/renamed in the Solaris 11.3.22 SRU

       

      I can't install it because the package estatus is renamed:

       

      # pkg info -r -g /var/share/pkg/repositories/S11.3_GA/ shell/ksh*

      Name: shell/ksh

      Summary:

      # pkg install -g /var/share/pkg/repositories/S11.3_GA/ shell/ksh

      Similar problem is referenced in Doc ID 2296805.1

       

      How can I install the package shell/ksh to fullfill the powerpath requirement?

          Hi,

          The message indicates that you may not have the publishers setup correctly on the system in question.

          In that your publishers should include the Solaris ones (specifically the one you point to with the -g option to the info command):

           

          pkg set-publisher -g /var/share/pkg/repositories/S11.3_GA/ solaris

           

          If you have any SRU's installed then they will need to be included in the repositories.

            Hi pete,

             

            The same behavior after publish the GA repo:

             

            # pkg publisher

            PUBLISHER                   TYPE     STATUS P LOCATION

            solaris                     origin   online F http://10.134.102.110:80/

             

            # pkg set-publisher -g /var/share/pkg/repositories/S11.3_GA/ solaris

            # pkg publisher

            PUBLISHER                   TYPE     STATUS P LOCATION

            solaris                     origin   online F file:///var/share/pkg/repositories/S11.3_GA/

            solaris                     origin   online F http://10.134.102.110:80/

             

            # pkg install -g /var/share/pkg/repositories/S11.3_GA/ shell/ksh

              Hi Gonzola,

              Not being able to install the shel//ksh is fine - it is renamed.

              What does :

               

              pkg list -af shell/ksh shell/ksh93

               

              display ?

               

              Have you tried to reinstall the EMC stuff ?

               

              thanks,

              Pete

                  Cool that you have it working now. You did not need to put the EMC package into the Solaris repo, does

                  no harm. But you could have installed it from the EMC repo at /export/home/utilunix/powerpath/PP6.0P03/EMCpower. Additionally the -g <path to repo> should not be needed as you have the publisher configured now - pkg install packagename.
