Committing VIOS fixes
If a fixpack has been applied to Virtual I/O Server, any un-committed fixes will need to be committed before a subsequent fixpack can be applied. If required, this will be indicated when attempting the updateios command, for example:
updateios -dev /xxx -accept -install
"All uncommited updates must be commited prior to installing new updates"
To commit any previous updates: run the command
If that command appears to "hang", start another terminal session and run
tail -f install.log
When there there is no additional output from the install.log, press Ctrl-C for the updateios command, and retry.
