Re: Boot problem of rp3410 hp server

[ Edited ]

Now do the same with P1.

 

If you get the same result, interact with ISL and type

 

ISL> hpux ls


to list the contents of /stand.


Hope this helps!

Re: Boot problem of rp3410 hp server

If you cannot access /stand, you have 2 options:

 

1) boot install media and use the recovery shell

 

2) ignite restore

 

 


Hope this helps!

Re: Boot problem of rp3410 hp server

Ignite on local tape?

 

Boot to the menu again, do a search, find the sequential media and boot from.


Hope this helps!
