Migration from AIX 4.1.5 to 4.2.1 Hangs when 15% Complete


OS Level: 4.1.5
Type/Model: c10


An attempted migration from AIX Version 4.1.5 to 4.2.1 hangs when it is 15% complete.


When the system is at 4.1.5, look at the file /etc/objrepos/CDiagDev. If it is too big, fix it as follows:

export ODMDIR=/etc/objrepos
mkdir /tmp/hugo
cd /tmp/hugo
odmshow CDiagDev >CDiagDev.cre
odmget CDiagDev >CDiagDev.add
mv /etc/objrepos/CDiagDev /etc/objrepos/CDiagDev.save
odmcreate -c CDiagDev.cre
odmadd CDiagDev.add
rm /etc/objrepos/CDiagDev.save
cd  /tmp
rm -r hugo

The migration should now work fine.
