  • creation of ISO9660 ISO image of Commvault client for Linux shortens filenames
    Posted: 07-30-2020, 4:42 PM



    I am trying to create a Commvault client packages for Linux DVD, which has proper permissions so that I can simply mount the DVD and execute cvpkgadd command to install commvault packages.

    I see that filename are large, so filenames are getting shortened when I create ISO image.


    Any hints on this or this is something product development should fix?


    This is what I did.

    1. Downloaded CV packages for Unix (version 11 SP 20), size of download is 5.7G.

    2. I uploaded to a Linux host and changed file ownership to root and gave execute permissions to all.

    # chown -R root:root Unix

    # chmod -R a+x Unix

    3.  Now I am creating ISO image and I get the warnings below stating that filenames are truncated.


    root@primecollect:/data/newlinuxDownloadPackageLocation# genisoimage -o CV_Linux_11_20.iso -R Unix
    I: -input-charset not specified, using utf-8 (detected in locale settings)

    I am afraid you won't get anywhere with a ISO9660 (nor Joilet by the looks of it), it will need to be UDF - or a USB image.
