removing a failed update

removing a failed update

removing a failed update

Is there a way to remove a failed update from the server (S8400).  I tried both the 5.2.1 service pack 6 update and the 5.2.1 security patch update today, and both failed.  Now, it won't let me do anything with them.  The following was the results I got when trying to unpack the security update, but the service pack 6 update said the same thing:

dadmin@S8400-7> update_unpack

The following update files were found ...
Please select which one you want to unpack:
2) PLAT-rhel4-1010.tar.gz
#? 2
unpacking file PLAT-rhel4-1010.tar.gz

gzip: stdin: unexpected end of file
tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
Failed to un-tar PLAT-rhel4-1010.tar.gz.
Update not unpacked, rc=512

RE: removing a failed update

If you have downloaded the files from support webpage, they were probably not fully downloaded.
Has happened to me a few weeks ago.
There is no way to remove the files with dadmin, because of user rights.
You have to open a ticket and Avaya techs will remove them for you.
