Pinned topic ISD 6.3.2.1 can't update VIOS to 2.2.2.2 level

‏2013-03-29T07:25:47Z |
Hi,

I used Update Manager on latest ISD 6.3.2.1 on AIX to update 4 VIOS from 2.2.2.1 to 2.2.2.2 (all latest code, ISD and VIOS).

ISD found that an update was necessary for VIOS, it staged the update correctly :

March 28, 2013 10:12:33 PM CET-Level:150-MEID:70767--MSG: ATKUPD686I The update 
"VIOS_2.2.2.2-FP26_SP01" has been staged 

for installation to 
"/opt/VIOS/update/VIOS/VIOS_2.2.2.2-FP26_SP01/" on the managed resource 
"p770-VIOS2" successfully. March 28, 2013 10:12:33 PM CET-Level:150-MEID:70767--MSG: ATKUPD633I The Installation Staging task has finished processing system 
"p770-VIOS2". March 28, 2013 10:12:33 PM CET-Level:150-MEID:0--MSG: ATKUPD630I The update installation staging has completed. March 28, 2013 10:12:33 PM CET-Level:150-MEID:70767--MSG: ATKUPD760I Start processing update 
"VIOS_2.2.2.2-FP26_SP01" and system 
"p770-VIOS2".


Then it hangs for ever at this step, and nothing happens on the VIOS.

From command line on VIOS, I could run the update by hand :

updateios -dev /opt/VIOS/update/VIOS/VIOS_2.2.2.2-FP26_SP01 -install -accept


It ran smoothly, but so long for automation with Sytems Director.

Can you figure out what happened ? I cannot afford installing VIOS to reproduce the problem.
