Product Feature: Installation / Upgrade

Operating System: Unix
 

Issue

While upgrading Spectrum on a Unix operating system, running install.sh gives below message

cat: Cannot open /dmz_nfs/share/Spectrum/kits/readme/warnings.: No such file or directory
 

Cause

  • Not enough temp space
  • Rights to directories

Resolution

UPDATED: September 15, 2015
Steps to find root cause
  1. Open install.sh script.
  2. Find in the script "DEBUGMSG=" and set to "YES".
  3. Save changes.
On re-executing installer, these errors should appear, indicating the problem:
$ ./install.sh
./install.sh: line 526: \nDEBUG: Absolute path to this installer: /production/k4s: No such file or directory

./install.sh: line 573: read_localized_eror: command not found

If this error occurs and it is not an issue with allocated temp space or permissions, double check that the correct installer files are being used.
