IBM Information Server - File names with colons are a pain in the ... colon
Following on from an earlier post: -
I hit the same issue today, and was able to mitigate it with a little bit of hacking ….
It seems that the problem is with the character conversion of the filename from the original extract: -
ls -al /Volumes/DaveHaySSD/Repo/IIS/is-suite/payloads/Shared/ODBCDrivers/payload/help/odbc
-rwxr-xr-x 1 davidhay staff 9569 10 May 2017 :RJDIC00
and the way that files with the colon ( : ) character are seen within the guest RHEL VM.
I "proved" this by creating a similarly named file, on the VM itself: -
cd /mnt/IIS/is-suite/payloads/Shared/ODBCDrivers/payload/help/odbctouch ":FOO"
which, in the guest, appears thus: -
-rw-r--r-- 1 501 games 0 Sep 10 20:37 :FOO
but on the host, appears as this: -
-rw-r--r-- 1 davidhay staff 0 10 Sep 20:37 &%FOO
Therefore, I cheated ….
On the host, I did this: -
cp ":RJDIC00" "&%RJDIC00"
Now, on the host, I see this: -
-rwxr-xr-x 1 davidhay staff 9569 10 Sep 20:39 &%RJDIC00
BUT on the guest, I see this: -
-rwxr-xr-x 1 501 games 9569 Sep 10 20:39 :RJDIC00
More importantly, the IIS installation proceeds normally ……
