Problem:

Trying to install COBOL Server on the same machine as Visual COBOL dev Hub in rpm formatted files resulted in errors:

rpm -i --prefix=/opt/microfocus/COBOLServer cobol_server_4.0_redhat_x86_64.rpm

error: Failed dependencies:

Micro_Focus_visualcobol_devhub conflicts with Micro_Focus_cobol_server-4.0.0.0-186407.x86_64

Micro_Focus_cobol_server conflicts with (installed) Micro_Focus_visualcobol_devhub-4.0.0.0-186407.x86_64

 

Resolution:

To have two RPM products installed at the same time. "nodeps" needs to be added to the following command.

 

rpm --nodeps -i --prefix=/opt/microfocus/COBOLServer cobol_server_4.0_redhat_x86_64.rpm

 

The “--nodeps” command allows two RPM products to be installed on the machine when the –prefix option is used. Otherwise it is blocked as seen.
