I just recently upgraded my VCSA from 6.5 to 6.7 U 3m, I am trying to patch it to U 3n because security issue.
i log into the shell with root and whatever command i try it alwasy fail stating that command not found.
i did the su ~ to no avail
it probably is a super easy think but i am not very versed in shell command so any help sould be apreciated.
here is the command tried and the output for reference
root@xxxxxxxxx [ ~ ]# software-packages stage --iso
bash: software-packages: command not found
Seconding this. I'm working with a system administrator who is having a similar problem, and I'm not entirely sure what's causing it. It doesn't help that I can't touch or log into the server myself, I can only see screenshots he shares with me.
Can anyone think of what might be causing this?
The software packages command failed for me, too. I had already run the shell.set and shell commands to enable the bash shell.
The update commands have to be entered in the appliance shell, not in a bash shell (https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/2100508).
Run them in the appliance shell and not in a bash shell.
Run this from bash : chsh -s /bin/appliancesh root
Restart the SSH session to VCSA. You will reach the Appliance Shell.
Run software-packages from here.
Thanks, Ajay. Switching back to the appliance shell fixed the command.
Thanks. Switching back to the appliance shell worked.
