   Operations on Remote Systems
       supports operations on remote systems.  By default, any user  can  list
       depots available or software installed on a remote target.

       The  command  may be used to change Access Control Lists (ACLs) to pre‐
       vent a system from being accessed remotely.  For example, entering both
       of the following commands:

       replaces	 the  default  ACL  that protects the root filesystem with one
       that only allows local users to list software installed.

   Interactive Operation
       supports an optional graphical user interface (GUI).  (If your terminal
       or display cannot support the GUI, the command also provides a terminal
       user interface, in which screen navigation is done  with	 the  keyboard
       and no mouse.)

       To invoke the GUI, type:

	      or  add  the option with any other command-line options when you
	      invoke the

   Previewing Product and OS Update Information
       To preview information about new software in the depot, you can use  to
       view  the  file	for each product, including OS update information con‐
       tained in the SD (SW-DIST product) For example, to display  the	latest
       OS update information:

       When  no	 options or operands are specified, lists the software bundles
       (and products which are not part of a bundle) that are installed at the

	      List  software  available	 from  a  depot	 (instead  of software
	      installed on
			a root filesystem).

	      Invoke the
			interactive user interface.  The interactive interface
			lets  you  browse  SD software objects.	 Invoking lets
			you browse depot software.  See the and headings above
			for additional details.

	      Operates on an alternate root directory, which must be specified
	      in the

	      Display a specific
			attribute,   such  as  revision,  description,	vendor
			information, size, vendor-defined attributes, or  oth‐
			ers.   (See  sd(4)  for details on all SD attributes.)
			The output lists one attribute per line in the format:

			To  list  the  full  set  of attributes for a software
			object, use the option.

			Note that the attribute (that is, the  identifier)  is
			always	displayed for product, subproduct, and fileset
			objects.  The attribute (that  is,  the	 filename)  is
			always displayed for file objects.

	      Write  full  catalog  structure  information  into the directory
			by the catalog modifier.  You can  use	this  exported
			catalog	  structure  for  distributions	 and  to  list
			installed software catalog information.

			If you use the option, the  and	 do  not  apply.   All
			attributes  down  to  the  file	 level and the control
			scripts are written to the catalog.

	      Save the current options and operands only to the
			session_file.  You can enter a	relative  or  absolute
			path  with  the	 file name.  The default directory for
			session files is Without this option, by default,  the
			session file is saved only in the default directory

			You  can recall a session file with the option.	 (Note
			that session management does not apply to the interac‐
			tive user interface invoked by the option.)

	      Read the list of
			software_selections  from software_file instead of (or
			in addition to) the command line.

	      List all objects down to the specified
			level.	Both the specified level(s) and the  depth  of
			the specified software_selections control the depth of
			the output.

	      Specify the software source to list.  This is an	alternate  way
	      to list
			a source depot.	 Sources can also be specified as tar‐
			get depots and listed using the option.

	      Execute	based on the options and operands saved from a	previ‐
			ous session, as defined in session_file.  You can save
			session information to a file with the option.	 (Note
			that session management does not apply to the interac‐
			tive user interface invoked by the option.)

	      Read the list of
			target_selections from target_file instead of  (or  in
			addition to) the command line.

	      Set the session

       supports	 two  types  of operands: followed by These operands are sepa‐
       rated by the "at" character.  This  syntax  implies  that  the  command
       operates on "software selections at targets".

   Software Selections
       supports the following syntax for each software_selection:

	      ·	 You  can specify selections with the following shell wildcard
		 and pattern-matching notations:

	      ·	 Bundles and subproducts are recursive.	 Bundles  can  contain
		 other bundles and subproducts can contain other subproducts.

	      ·	 The  software	specification  selects all products.  Use this
		 specification with caution.

       The component has the form:

	      ·	 location applies only to installed  software  and  refers  to
		 software installed to a location other than the default prod‐
		 uct directory.

	      ·	 and apply only to filesets.

	      ·	 and apply only to bundles and products.  They are applied  to
		 the leftmost bundle or product in a software specification.

	      ·	 The <op> (relational operator) component can be of the form:


		 which	 performs   individual	comparisons  on	 dot-separated

		 For example, chooses all revisions greater than or  equal  to
		 The system compares each dot-separated field to find matches.

	      ·	 The  (equals) relational operator lets you specify selections
		 with the shell wildcard and pattern-matching notations:

		 For example, the expression returns any revision  in  version
		 10 or version 11.

	      ·	 All  version components are repeatable within a single speci‐
		 fication (for example, If multiple components are  used,  the
		 selection must match all components.

	      ·	 Fully qualified software specs include the and version compo‐
		 nents even if they  contain  empty  strings.	For  installed
		 software, is also included.

	      ·	 No  space  or tab characters are allowed in a software selec‐

	      ·	 The software can take the place of the version component.  It
		 has the form:


		 within	 the context of an exported catalog, where is an inte‐
		 ger that distinguishes versions of products and bundles  with
		 the same tag.

   Target Selections
       supports this syntax for each target_selection.

       A  host	may  be	 specified  by its host name, domain name, or Internet
       address. If host is specified, the directory must be an absolute	 path.
       To specify a relative path when no host is specified, the relative path
       must start with or otherwise, the specified name	 is  considered	 as  a

   Target Selections with IPv6 Address
       The  command  supports  specifying the host as an IPv6 address on HP-UX
       Release 11i v3, as shown below.

       If both the hostname and the path are specified, then the first	occur‐
       rence of a slash is treated as the separator.

       The  IPv6 address can optionally be enclosed in a pair of square brack‐
       ets and

   Default Options
       In addition to the standard options, several SD	behaviors  and	policy
       options can be changed by editing the default values found in:

	      the system-wide default values.

	      the user-specific default values.

       Values must be specified in the defaults file using this syntax:

       The  optional  prefix denotes one of the SD commands.  Using the prefix
       limits the change in the default value to that command.	If  you	 leave
       the prefix off, the change applies to all commands.

       You  can also override default values from the command line with the or

       The following section lists all of the keywords supported by  the  com‐
       mands.  If a default value exists, it is listed after the

       The policy options that apply to are:

	      The  location for SD logfiles and the default par‐
	      ent directory for the
			installed software catalog.  The default
			value is for normal SD operations.  When
			SD operates in nonprivileged mode  (that
			is, when the default option is set to

			·  The default value is forced to

			·  The path element is replaced with the
			   name of the invoking user,  which  SD
			   reads from the system password file.

			·  If  you  set the value of this option
			   to path, SD replaces with the  invok‐
			   ing	user's	home directory (from the
			   system password  file)  and	resolves
			   path relative to that directory.  For
			   example, resolves to the directory in
			   your home directory.

			·  If  you  set the value of the default
			   option to a relative path, that  path
			   is  resolved relative to the value of
			   this option.

			SD's nonprivileged mode is intended only
			for  managing applications that are spe‐
			cially designed and packaged.  This mode
			cannot be used to manage the HP-UX oper‐
			ating system or patches to  it.	  For  a
			full  explanation  of  nonprivileged SD,
			see the available at the web site.

	      Causes a target agent to exit if it has been inac‐
	      tive for the
			specified  time.   This	 can  be used to
			make target agents more	 quickly  detect
			lost  network  connections since RPC can
			take as long as 130 minutes to detect  a
			lost  connection.  The recommended value
			is  the	 longest  period  of  inactivity
			expected  in your environment.	For com‐
			mand line invocation, a value between 10
			minutes	 and  60 minutes is suitable.  A
			value of 60 minutes or	more  is  recom‐
			mended	when  the GUI will be used.  The
			default of 10000 is slightly less than 7

	      Provides the "codeword" needed to unlock protected
	      HP CD-ROM software.

			Some HP software products are shipped on
			CD-ROM	as  "protected"	 products.  That
			is, they cannot be installed  or  copied
			unless	a  "codeword"  and "customer ID"
			are provided.  The codeword is found  on
			the   CD-ROM   certificate   which   you
			received from  HP.   You  may  use  this
			default	 specification	on  the	 command
			line  or  the  SD-UX  interactive   user
			interface to enter the codeword.

			This  default  stores  the  codeword for
			future reference; it needs to be entered
			only  once.  If a new HP product is pur‐
			chased	and  a	previous  codeword   has
			already	 been  entered	for that CD-ROM,
			just enter the new codeword as usual and
			the codewords will be merged internally.

			NOTE:  For  HP-UX B.10.10 and later sys‐
			tems, SD searches the file on the server
			that  is providing protected software to
			other hosts.  It looks	for  valid  cus‐
			tomer_id/codeword  pairs.   In doing so,
			SD eliminates the need	to  enter  code‐
			words  and  customer_ids  on  every host
			that is "pulling" the software.

			To properly store the  customer_id/code‐
			word  for  a  CD-ROM, run or on the host
			serving the CD-ROM.  After the	codeword
			has  been  stored, clients installing or
			copying software using that host and CD-
			ROM as a source will no longer require a
			codeword or customer_id.

	      For cumulative source depots, this  option  allows
	      consistent software
			selections  over time by and The default
			of zero includes all bundles,  products,
			subproducts,  and filesets in the source
			depot as candidates for	 selection  (and
			autoselection	 of   dependencies   and
			patches), based on the	software  selec‐
			tions  and other options.  When set to a
			time (specified as seconds from	 epoch),
			only  those bundles, products, and file‐
			sets (and the subproducts in  the  prod‐
			uct)  with  a  less than or equal to the
			specified value are available for selec‐
			tion (or autoselection).  To list the of
			bundles, products and filesets, use:

	      This number, also printed on the Software Certifi‐
			is  used  to "unlock" protected software
			and restrict its installation to a  spe‐
			cific  site  or	 owner.	  It  is entered
			using  the  customer_id=  option  or  by
			using  the  interactive	 user interface.
			The customer_id can be used on any HP-UX
			10.X or later system.

	      Defines the default location of the target depot.

	      Defines  the  directory  path  where the Installed
	      Products Database (IPD)
			is stored.  This  information  describes
			installed  software.   When  set  to  an
			absolute path, this option  defines  the
			location  of  the IPD.	When this option
			contains a relative path,  the	SD  con‐
			troller	 appends  the value to the value
			specified by the option to determine the
			path  to  the IPD.  For alternate roots,
			this path is resolved  relative	 to  the
			location  of  the  alternate root.  This
			option does not affect where software is
			installed, only the IPD location.

			This  option  permits  the  simultaneous
			installation  and  removal  of	multiple
			software  applications by multiple users
			or multiple processes, with each  appli‐
			cation	or group of applications using a
			different IPD.

			Caution: use a specific to manage a spe‐
			cific  application.  SD does not support
			multiple descriptions of the same appli‐
			cation in multiple IPDs.

			See  also the and options, which control
			SD's nonprivileged mode.  (This mode  is
			intended  only for managing applications
			that are specially  designed  and  pack‐
			aged.	This mode cannot be used to man‐
			age  the  HP-UX	 operating   system   or
			patches	 to  it.  For a full explanation
			of nonprivileged SD, see  the  available
			at the web site.)

	      Specifies the POSIX
			to  which  the	SD commands conform when
			writing distributions and output.   Sup‐
			ported	values	are  "1.0" (default) and

			SD object and attribute syntax	conforms
			to  the	 specification	of the standard.
			SD commands  still  accept  the	 keyword
			names  associated  with the older layout
			version, but you should use only to cre‐
			ate distributions readable by older ver‐
			sions of SD.

			See the description  of	 the  option  in
			sd(5) for more information.

	      Specify the
			level of the object to list.

			The supported software levels are:
			Show  all  objects  down  to  the bundle
			Show all objects  down	to  the	 product
			level.	Also use
					  to show bundles.
			Show  all objects down to the subproduct
			Show all objects  down	to  the	 fileset
			level.	Also use
					  to show subproducts.
			Show all objects down to the file level.
			Show   all  objects  down  to  the  con‐
			trol_file level.
			Show   all   categories	  of   available
			Show all applied patches.

			The supported depot and root levels are:
			Show  only  the	 depot	level  (that is,
			depots which exist
					  at the specified  tar‐
					  get hosts).
			List all alternate roots.
			List  all registered shared roots (HP-UX
			10.X only).
			List all registered private roots (HP-UX
			10.X only).

	      Controls	the  time in minutes to cache and re-use
	      the results of hostname
			or IP  address	resolution  lookups.   A
			value  of  0  disables	the  facility to
			cache and re-use  lookup  results.   The
			maximum	 value allowed is 10080 minutes,
			which is one week.

			A value of:
			disables the lookup caching mechanism.
			is the maximum value allowed.

	      Defines the attributes which will	 be  listed  for
	      each object when no
			or    options	are   specified.    Each
			attribute included in the definition  is
			separated  by  <tab>  or  <space>.   Any
			attributes may be included in the  defi‐
			nition.	  If a particular attribute does
			not exist for an object, that  attribute
			is  silently  ignored.	For example, the
			attribute is valid  for	 products,  sub‐
			products,    and   filesets,   but   the
			attribute is only valid for products.

	      Specifies the attributes displayed for each object
	      listed when the
			option	is invoked and when no or option
			is  specified.	 The   default	 display
			attributes are and

	      This  option  controls  the  exit code returned by
	      SD's controller commands.
			This option is	applicable  only  for  a
			single	target	operation,  and	 ignored
			when multiple targets are used.

			When set to the default value of  swlist

			0  If  there  were  no	errors,	 with or
			   without warnings.

			1  If there were errors.

			When set to swlist returns :

			0  If there  were  no  warnings	 and  no

			1  If there were errors.

			2  If there were warnings but no errors.

	      Defines  the  protocol sequence(s) and endpoint(s)
	      on which the daemon
			listens and the other  commands	 contact
			the  daemon. If the connection fails for
			one  protocol  sequence,  the  next   is
			attempted.  SD supports both the tcp and
			udp protocol sequence on most platforms.
			See  the  sd(5)	 man  page by typing for
			more information.

	      Relative length  of  the	communications	timeout.
	      This is a value in the
			range  from 0 to 9 and is interpreted by
			the DCE RPC.  Higher values mean  longer
			times; you may need a higher value for a
			slow or busy network.  Lower values will
			give  faster  recognition on attempts to
			contact hosts that are	not  up	 or  not
			running	  Each	value  is  approximately
			twice as long as the preceding value.  A
			value  of  5 is about 30 seconds for the
			protocol sequence.  This option may  not
			have  any  noticeable  impact when using
			the protocol sequence.

	      This  option  controls  SD's  nonprivileged  mode.
	      This option is ignored
			(treated as true) when the invoking user
			is super-user.

			When set to the default value  of  true,
			SD  operations	are  performed normally,
			with permissions for  operations  either
			granted	 to a local super-user or set by
			SD ACLs.  (See swacl(1M) for details  on

			When  set to false and the invoking user
			is local and is not super-user, nonpriv‐
			ileged mode is invoked:

			·  Permissions	for operations are based
			   on the  user's  file	 system	 permis‐

			·  SD ACLs are ignored.

			·  Files  created by SD have the uid and
			   gid of the  invoking	 user,	and  the
			   mode	 of created files is set accord‐
			   ing to the invoking user's umask.

			SD's nonprivileged mode is intended only
			for  managing applications that are spe‐
			cially designed and packaged.  This mode
			cannot be used to manage the HP-UX oper‐
			ating system or patches to  it.	  For  a
			full  explanation  of  nonprivileged SD,

   Session File
       Each  invocation	 of defines a task session.  The command
       automatically saves options, source information, software
       selections,  and	 target selections before the task actu‐
       ally commences.	This lets  you	re-execute  the	 command
       even  if	 the  session  ends before the task is complete.
       You can also save session information from interactive or
       command-line sessions.

       Session	information  is	 saved	to the file This file is
       overwritten by each invocation of the command.  The  file
       uses the same syntax as the defaults files.

       From  an interactive session, you can save session infor‐
       mation into a file at any time by selecting the Save Ses‐
       sion or Save Session As option from the File menu.

       From  a command-line session, you can save session infor‐
       mation by executing the command with the option.	 You can
       specify	an  absolute path for a session file.  If you do
       not specify a directory, the default location is

       To re-execute a saved session from  an  interactive  ses‐
       sion, use the Recall Session option from the File menu.

       To  re-execute a session from a command-line, specify the
       session file as the argument for the option.

       When you re-execute a session file,  the	 values	 in  the
       session	file  take  precedence over values in the system
       defaults file.  Likewise, any  command-line  options  and
       parameters take precedence over the values in the session

   Environment Variables
       The environment variables that affect the command are:

			   displaying dates and times in and

	      Determines  the  time zone for use when displaying
	      dates and times.

       The command catches the signals SIGQUIT and  SIGINT.   If
       these  signals  are  received,  prints a message, sends a
       Remote Procedure Call (RPC) to the agents to wrap up, and
       then exits.

       Each  agent will complete the list task (if the execution
       phase has already started) before it wraps up.

       The output from follows this rule with all options:  only
       the  lowest level listed (product, subproduct, fileset or
       file) will be  uncommented.   Among  other  things,  this
       allows  the output from to be used as input to other com‐
       mands.  The one	exception  is  the  list  that	contains
       files;  file-level  output  is not accepted by other com‐

       The types of listings that  can	be  selected  are  given
       below.  Some of these listings are not exclusive choices,
       but rather ways to view the objects while controlling the
       amount of output.

	      ·	 Default Listing
	      ·	 Software Listing
	      ·	 Root Listing
	      ·	 Depot Listing
	      ·	 Multiple Targets Listing
	      ·	 Verbose Listing

   Default Listing
       If  is  invoked	with  no software_selections and no tar‐
       get_selections, a listing of all	 installed  products  on
       the  local  host	 is produced.  This listing contains one
       line for each product.  The line includes the product tag
       attributes  and	all  other  attributes	selected via the

       If target_selections (that is, target hosts)  are  speci‐
       fied,  this  same  format  listing  is  produced	 for the
       installed software at each of the specified hosts.

   Software Listing
       A listing of software objects is controlled by the speci‐
       fied  software_selections,  and	also by the option lists
       the contents of each software  object  specified	 in  the
       software_selections.  For example, if you specify product
       selections,  the subproducts  and/or  filesets  contained
       immediately  below  each	 product will be listed.  If you
       specify fileset selections, the files contained	in  each
       fileset will be listed.

       The  depth  of  objects	listed	is  controlled	with the
       option.	This option can expand or restrict the depth  in
       concert	with  the  specified  software	selections.   By
       default, the contents of a specified  software  selection
       are  always  listed (as described above).  The option can
       defeat this listing by specifying a level  equivalent  to
       the  level  of  objects	in the software_selections.  For
       example, if you want to list specific product  selections
       but  not their contents, use If you want to list specific
       fileset selections but not their contained files, use The
       software_selection  options  only  apply	 if the level is
       bundle, product, subproduct, fileset, file, or patch.

   Depot Listing
       Another class of objects that can  display  are	software
       depots.	 For  example,	the user can list all registered
       depots on a given host.	A combination of the option  and
       target_selections operands can produce a variety of depot

   Multiple Targets Listing
       Multiple target_selections (that	 is,  root  filesystems,
       alternate roots, or depots) are listed sequentially: list
       all the requested objects and attributes from  the  first
       target_selection,  followed  by	the second target_selec‐
       tion, etc.

   Verbose Listing
       The option causes a verbose listing to be  generated.   A
       verbose	listing	 includes  all attributes defined for an
       object.	The command prints the	keyword	 and  value  for
       each  attribute.	 The attributes are listed one per line.
       The user can post-process (filter) the output with and/or
       to get the fields of interest.

       The  depot's  attributes	 are displayed if is called with
       the and options, and a specific depot target_selection.

       Attributes for a particular software level are  displayed
       based  on the depth of the specified software_selections.
       For example, swlist -v product1.fileset1	 will  give  all
       fileset	attributes  for fileset1.  If the option is used
       with the the different listing are:

	      ·	 To display attributes for all products, use

	      ·	 To display attributes for all products and sub‐
		 products, use

	      ·	 To  display  attributes  for  all  products and
		 filesets, use

	      ·	 To display attributes for all	products,  file‐
		 sets, and files, use

       The command returns:

	      The software_selections  and/or  target_selections
		  were successfully listed.
	      The list operation failed on
		  all target_selections.
	      The list operation failed on
		  some target_selections.

       The command writes to stdout, stderr, and  to  the  agent

   Standard Output
       All listings are printed to stdout.

   Standard Error
       The  command  writes  messages  for all WARNING and ERROR
       conditions to stderr.

       The command does not log summary events.	 It logs  events
       about  each read task to the logfile associated with each

       You can use the interactive interface to view the file.

   swagentd Disabled
       If the daemon has been disabled on the host,  it	 can  be
       enabled by the host's system administrator by setting the
       entry in to and executing
