LMS 3.0 Install Error in Solaris 9

Unanswered Question
Apr 24th, 2008

Hi Everyone,

I'm trying to install the LMS 3.0 Evaluation Software in a Sparc with Solaris 9 but after answer all the installation questions i receive the following messages :


ERROR: The following base package image is bad: CSCOclsch.

ERROR: The following base package image is bad: CSCOcomon.

ERROR: The following base package image is bad: CSCOdal.

ERROR: The following base package image is bad: CSCOdm.

ERROR: The following base package image is bad: CSCOopmgr.

ERROR: The following base package image is bad: CSCOplr.

ERROR: The following base package image is bad: CSCOstl.

ERROR: The following base package image is bad: CSCOipmutl.

ERROR: The following base package image is bad: CSCOcli.


This happens to all packages...

I download the evaluation zip file from Cisco and create the DVD using mkisofs with Rock Bridge Extensions.

I'm trying to install directy from the DVD-ROM /cdrom/cdrom0 using a telnet session...

Any tip or help ?

Thanks in Advanced

Either your download is bad, or the burn was bad. If you copied the directory structure, make sure you used a tar copy to preserve all attributes exactly. For example:

mkdir /dst/dvd

cd /src/eval

tar cpf . - | (cd /dst/dvd && tar xpf -)

Before creating your IOS, you can run disk1/checkPkgIntegrity.sh to validate the consistency of the packages.

Hi Jclarke, thanks a lot for your prompt reply...

I take a look and appears there is an bug with solaris 9 and pkgchk. Please take a look in this thread


When checkPkgIntegrity.sh is running, there are a lot of erros (modtime). So the install doesn't go on..

I'm trying to find a workaround.

Thanks in Advanced,

My Best Regards

The package bits must have their mtime attributes match with the pkgmap exactly. Under normal circumstances, this is never a problem. We have not seen an issue where customers got these errors when installing on Solaris that could be attributed to a pkgchk bug. The problem was either a bad download/copy, or an issue with what we posted on Cisco.com.

Since I have not heard anyone else complain about a bad eval installation, please detail every step you took to download and create the DVD.

Hi Jclarke, here my steps:

1) Download lms-s_3_0.zip from Cisco.

MD5 CheckSum 05572980d35f40ffc393bc28a3a4d2cc

2) Unzip lms-s_3_0.zip in Windows XP

The directory lms-s_3_ is created

3) I create the CD using the following command:

C:\temp>mkisofs -o ciscoworks.iso -d -l -L -r -R -J -V CiscoWorks C:\lomonaco\CiscoWorks\CD\lms-s_3_

I used Nero to burn the Iso image

4) I put in my Solaris Server in cdrom/cdrom0

5) The install process works fine until the checkPkgIntegrity.sh script

6) Here the errors when I execute pkgchk from console:

sa-corp-ciw1:/cdrom/cdrom0/packages# pkgchk -d . CSCOafd

Checking uninstalled directory format package from


## Checking control scripts.

## Checking package objects.

7) All modtime errors is showing a difference of 4 hours. Can be something related with my timezone (Brazil/East) ???

When you extract the zip file, what are the timestamps on those same files? It may be that your unzip program is modifying the timestamps based on your local time. You might also try downloading the zip file to Solaris, and using mkisofs on Solaris to build the image, then burn it on your PC.

Hi jclarke,

What's the best way to extract the evaluation zip file download from cisco

(lms-s_3_0.zip) in Solaris 9 to keep the atributes and the correct pkgmap and pkginfo informations ?

Thanks in Advanced,

Hi jclarke,

I couldn't create my image but at least I received the disk from cisco and all works as described in the installation guide.

Thanks for all

My Best Regards,

Andre Lomonaco
