Issue/Introduction

Upon booting the CPM from the Install Server and entering the install-xos command, the following error message appears:

[[email protected] ~]# /crossbeam/bin/install-xos -r1 /common/REL_9.6.5-54
install-xos: Can not find a valid XOS installation package.   Please verify you have the correct XOS System Software and try again !
[[email protected] ~]#


 

Cause

The above command is entered incorrectly. The install-xos script expects the XOS directory as the first parameter followed by options:

[[email protected] ~]# /crossbeam/bin/install-xos
USAGE: install-xos PRODUCT_DIRECTORY  [OPTIONS]

  Perform an XOS system installation

        -C FILE         Specify a disk layout config file
        -L value        Specify a partition/logical scheme to use
        -r0|-r1         Format system disk using RAID-0 or RAID-1
        -q              Perform a quiet install, don't verify RPMs

Resolution

Move the option to the end of the command line:

[[email protected] ~]# /crossbeam/bin/install-xos /common/REL_9.6.5-54 -r1
