Error description

  • When I put a wrong installation path for fix pack (install with
    console mode), the installation continues and shows successful.
    Only when I check the log file, then I know the installation is
    failed.
    
    It is different when we install using GUI mode, where there is a
    checking for netcool components on the directory we specified.
    If the directory contains no netcool components, the error
    message will appear.
    
    This can cause misleading info to user when it is showing
    successful but it is not.

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * When installing a fix pack in console mode, if an incorrect  *
    * installation path is given, the install continues and shows  *
    * successful. However, the log shows that the installation     *
    * actually failed.                                             *
    ****************************************************************

Problem conclusion

  • The InstallAnywhere configuration has been updated so that there
    is a new panel for the console which is triggered by the invalid
    path. When an invalid FP path is entered the user will now be
    prompted to enter a correct path.
    
    The fix for this APAR is contained in the following maintenance
    packages:
         | fix pack | 7.3.1-TIV-NCOMNIbus-FP0006
         | fix pack | 7.4.0-TIV-NCOMNIbus-FP0001
