Additional Information

The customer had copied the support pack to a shared volume. During the installation process one of the actions of the support pack is to unload/stop all services that id doesn't not require or that need to be stopped in order to apply the patch, this includes Novell Clustering Services. Once the shared volume is no longer available the support pack installation routine is unable to access the data it needs and throws up this error message.
