Incorrect tools version[edit]

WARNING: The version of the tools used for system recovery on "<server_hostname>" is 
         older than the version found on the server system "client_hostname". It is 
         recommended that you update Ignite-UX to the same version. You can do 
         this by using the command: /usr/sbin/swinstall -x 
         mount_all_filesystems=false -s 
         <server_hostname>:/var/opt/ignite/depots/recovery_cmds "*" 

This warning is issue because the client Ignite-UX recovery software version in the client is older that the version currently installed in the Ignite-UX server. Update the version of the IUX-Recovery bundled published on the Ignite-UX server on /var/opt/ignite/depots/recovery_cmds depot.

1. Remove the IUX-Recovery or any older Ignite-UX software from the client.
2. Check that /var/opt/ignite/depots/recovery_cmds depot exists on the Ignite-UX server


# swlist -l depot -s <server_hostname> | grep recovery_cmds

# swlist -l bundle -s <server_hostname>:/var/opt/ignite/depots/recovery_cmds
# Initializing...
# Contacting target "<server_hostname>"...
# Target:  <server_hostname>:/var/opt/ignite/depots/recovery_cmds
