Problems with swinstall hanging
A common cause for swinstall hanging is a clash with Measure Ware. To stop this happening, do the following:
1. disable MeasureWare from starting (/etc/rc.config.d/mwa) 2. shut MWA - /sbin/init.d/mwa stop 3. kill rpcd daemon 4. export DMS_FORCEOFF=1 5. run /opt/dce/sbin/rpcd 6. restart swagentd
Can also try using udp instead of tcp e.g.
swinstall - x rpc_binding_info=ncadg_ip_udp -s depot_location
The following permanent changes can be made in /var/adm/sw/defaults
swinstall.rpc_binding_info=ncan_ip_udp swinstall.rpc_timeout=5 swinstall.retry_rpc=9 swinstall.agent_timeout_minutes=10 swinstall.polling_interval=60
Once the changes have been made, execute swagentd -r to reread the parameters. It is also worthwhile installing the latest SD-UX cumulative patch.
