Related Issues/Questions:

Using $SPECROOT/SS-Tools/packtool.pl -no_notifier -no_event_alarms with SPECTRUM 9.1 on Solaris or Linux returns the following message:


newtar: can't open SS-Tools/config_file_install_script.exe: No such file or directory


successful pack.



Problem Environment:
SPECTRUM 9.1
Solaris
Linux
packtool.pl


Causes of this problem:

The problem is just, that the file to be sourced under solaris/Linux is "config_file_install_script"


and NOT config_file_install_script.exe as in packtool.pl (line 178).




Additional Information:

This is known as swbug022633:


Symptom:

The packtool.pl script will fail to package up a file on solaris and linux
because it's expecting a .exe extension on the file when there isn't one on
those platforms.

Resolution:

The packtool.pl script should not report any errors packing up files on solaris
and linux.


This bug will be fixed in a next hot fix for 9.0/9.1.
