Solaris patch cluster installation error

Hi Admins,

I came across an error while installing patch cluster on solaris.

# ./installcluster --s10cluster
ERROR: Another instance of an install script is already running for target
boot
environment '/'.

I did killed the related processes. Now there is no any process running from ps -eaf | grep -i cluster. Then I tried again to install but still getting the same error..

Any suggestion?

Thanks

reboot solved the problem... But any other solution other than reboot?

the process might have created a pid file when it run. when you restarted the script, this pid file still exists and was found by the script thus it assumes there are still instances running. rebooting the machine clears the /var/run since its a tmpfs filesystem. the folder usually contains the pid/lock files.

All programming languages have automatic garbage collection that monitors the dynamically allocated pieces of memory and determine if any variable in the program still references it. If the memory is no longer referenced, it is 'garbage' and becomes eligible to be 'collected'.
True or False?
