when you are logged in as padmin in VIOS you are firmly stuck on the
/home/padmin directory. When you FTP to the VIOS with padmin as the user
you alse get thrown into the /home/padmin dir. IIRC it's the only place
where you can create and cd to directories, I do remember having
/home/padmin/FW or /home/padmin/FIX directories for either firmware or
fixes...


Best of luck

Help an idiot out. How do I get into the 'padmin home directory'?
Or, by some other shell are you talking something like oem_setup_env?

VIOS' shell is so closed down that i usually end up either using the aix
shell or (when doing vios stuff like a fix) using the padmin home
directory
and not moving from there... Would that work for you?

I am willing to ftp the stuff here but determining an appropriate
directory is tough. See the following:

/usr: The file access permissions do not allow the specified action.
$ mkdir /viosupgrade
mkdir: 0653-357 Cannot access directory /.
/: The file access permissions do not allow the specified action.
$ ls
53782.082.000.snap.pax.Z smit.log tivoli
config smit. script
ioscli.log smit. transaction
$ mkdir viosupgrade

$ cd viosupgrade
rksh: cd: 0403-019 The operation is not allowed in a restricted shell.
$ rm viosupgrade
rm: 0653-603 Cannot remove directory viosupgrade.

$ ioslevel
2.2.3.3

Opened a ticket on it and so far they've only casually glanced at what I
posted and are suggesting that I edit some shell scripts to fix a known
issue with that.
I'm trying to explain to them that I'm still in the attempting to load
the
fixes on to a work directory phase and haven't started to run any shell
scripts yet.

Weird. Let's me create a directory, but not change into it, nor remove
it. Sounds like some of the ftp exit points I've written. :-)
