The failure will go along the lines like below;

[root@lcoss90 remote]# ./cvpkgadd

Preparing and updating installer ...

*** Wrong version of ksh: /mnt/remote/linux-glibc2.3-s390/CVGxBase0/ksh

Reason is due to the following;

[root@lcosx86v58-3 CVGxBase0]# file ksh

ksh: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.2.5, statically linked, not stripped

You’ll notice that the ksh binary hasn’t been compiled for the architecture correctly, it’s going to be fixed on a future SP release and media update.

The correctly compiled binary would like below for this architecture;

[root@lcosx86v58-3 ~]# file ksh

ksh: ELF 32-bit MSB executable, IBM S/390, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.6.0, statically linked, not stripped

In the meantime, you can obtain an update version of the linux-glibc2.3-s390 directory from Commvault Support, so open a ticket with them and request it.
