Hello Experts ,
Need your inputs on ignite recovery on PA and IA system.
I have setup new Ignite server and added clients for recovery and able to take the ignite backup @ Ignite server . All the clients and server having saame version of ignite software C.7.16.283.
Now I have challenges during recovery ,
I have observed , while running make_net_recovery , it takes the first LAN interface’s MAC address irrespective we give the MAC address of PRI Interface while adding client to Ignite server . many times first MAC / interface might be not having physical connection or it is in different subnet than ignite server and due to which we cannot perform recovery .
Our ignite server and clients are not on same subnet / vlan and due to which I cannot run the bootpquery
Client# /usr/sbin/bootpquery MAC_of_cleint ether -s server
bootpquery: Bootp servers not responding!
>> Ignite server and clients should be on same subnet/Vlan is that condition for recovering PA-RISC ? also applicable for IA-Itanium architecture ?
>> How to recover system in case if server and clients are on different subnet ?
>> while searching doc , I got “ Boot HELPER “ we can set to client’s subnet and that way we can recover the client. For which we have to install “Ignite-UX.MinimumRuntime “ followed by
#instl_adm -t Ignite-UX_server_IP
>> what are exact steps to configure BOOT HELPER on HPUX server ?
>> Steps to configure boot helper on Non-HPUX like LINUX and how does it works.
>> In case , if we do not have Boot helper and client is on different subnet and due to some reason client get crashed ? then can we just recover the system after requesting network team to change the subnet/Vlan of client to same as server , followed by recovery procedure ? Can this be a work around ?
Thanks in advance !
