APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When updateios is running with "-install" option (which
    is
    the case every time an update to new fix pack/service
    pack
    is done), the install.log file is overwritten. This
    causes
    log and details for prior updateios invocations to be
    lost.
    
    Other updateios command does not overwrite install.log.
    

Local fix

  • Perform a manual copy of install.log before running
    "updateios -install"
    

Problem summary

  • When updateios is running with "-install" option (which is the
    case every time an update to new fix pack/service pack is
    done), the install.log file is overwritten. This causes log and
    details for prior updateios invocations to be lost.
    
    Other updateios command does not overwrite install.log.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Modify geninstall to allow existing files with append and not
    overwrite.
