When doing a new install on a tru64 box it does not recognise the OS and installation cannot continue.
The shareplex installation scripts in v4.0 and v4.5 call the UNIX uname command and returns the OS as P5.1 rather than V5.1 which we are expecting:
Uname output :
# uname -r
# uname -s
OSF1 aukshpat P5.1 1644 alpha
Go to the directory where the shareplex installation scripts are (the top directory containing the splex-install script).
Then run grep to find all occurrences of V5.1
grep V5.1 *
This will list 5 or more occurrences of the tru64 V5.1 OS version which we are looking for to allow the installation to work.
keep a copy of the files containing the pattern V5.1 and then edit the originals changing all references for V5.1 to P5.1
