I'm trying to install service pack from a directory where I staged all the .bff files. I get the following error below. Please help.

Here is what I did.

root@server:/> inutoc /staging/AIX_6.1

root@server:/> ls -l /staging/AIX_6.1/.toc
-rw-r--r--    1 root     system            0 Mar 09 15:55 /staging/AIX_6.1/.toc

root@server:/> install_all_updates -Y -d /staging/AIX_6.1
install_all_updates: Initializing system parameters.
install_all_updates: Log file is /var/adm/ras/install_all_updates.log

As you can see from the "ls -l" output your ".toc" file is empty, for what reasons ever.

Are the packages indeed directly under /staging/AIX_6.1 or are they rather in some subdirectoty, like "installp/ppc" or "usr/sys/inst.images"?

Anyway, issue

cd /staging/AIX_6.1

(or whatever subdirectory might contain the packages)

then issue (as root)

inutoc .

(Note the dot " ."!)

and retry.
