View Full Version : 10.3.3 update failed, need to retry
03-16-2004, 04:24 PM
When I installed 10.3.3, using server admin update util, my machine went to auto reboot. Unfortunately there was another user logged into the server so it hung. After waiting a reasonable amount of time for this blue screen to clear, I had to force reboot. Now no remote users can authenticate to the server. I can log in as any user locally (with correct userid and passwd)
How can I force a re-install of 10.3.3 server update?

Delete the Receipt of MacOSXUpdate10.3.3.pkg in /Library/Receipts and you should be able to re-install 10.3.3
Hope this helps

Thanks for the help, but I had already moved the receipt out, and was still unable to install.
I did manage to solve this though, as Apple posted the a new pkg, 10.3.3 server update complete. While being much bigger and re-installing many of the previously installed security patches, it did work to reinstall the pkg and now my users can get back in.
Now the question is why did I think that doing this on a Monday night was a good idea? Friday, Friday, Friday, always update servers on Friday.

Ok, so after reinstalling everthing worked fine for ther first log in, but after users log out, they can't log back in. I get an odd host key error if I try to ssh or sftp in, so I think it is something in that realm, but not sure how to fix it. Any urls, or place I should start to hunt?

If you are using netinfo still you may want to consider backing it up and importing it again. If not you may have an issue with the LDAP, which I have come across. There are ways of saving it but you do have to watch out, you can lose your data. If worse comes to worse you can pull a power reinstall, which in cases like these seem to be the best way to do things(I hate being a purist).
