Specific Software Package Installation Errors

WARNING: filename <not present on Read Only file system>

Reason Error Occurred 

How to Fix the Problem 

This error message indicates that not all of a package's files could be installed. This usually occurs when you are using pkgadd to install a package on a client. In this case, pkgadd attempts to install a package on a file system that is mounted from a server, but pkgadd doesn't have permission to do so.

If you see this warning message during a package installation, you must also install the package on the server. See Chapter 20, Managing Software (Overview), in System Administration Guide: Basic Administration for details.
