OS - HP-UX 11.23 based on the two disks in RAID-0. One day ago, one of the disk has broken down.
We backup our systems using EMC networker.
How can I correctly restore from backup? Because, after having istalled new system and networker clinet, i recovered all files. then i rebooted os but os failed to be booted.
I think, problem is in the discrepancy between LVM settings of the new OS and previously backuped files.
Help me, please, to solve this situation.

HP-UX OS should be backed up with Ignite-ux.
I dont know how you used Networker to restore the OS files.
The idea should be a cold isntall, and make the configuration accordingly if you dont have a Ignite backup.

Let's see ...
You have an rx2620 with an smart array sa6400, so only a RAID 0? Bad idea!
The you cold-installed the OS and restored all (!) the data?
Look at this
/sbin/rc2.d/S131ipfboot: ps: not found
/sbin/rc2.d/S131ipfboot: grep: not found
/sbin/rc2.d/S544cfservd: hostname: not found
/sbin/rc2.d/S546syslog-ng: hostname: not found
interpreter "/bin/sh" not found
file link resolves to "/usr/bin/sh"
Something went really wrong during restore.
Consider to boot into single user (if possible) and check (vgdisplay, etc - if vg00 is OK or not) or better start over with cold-install and restore.
Better use ignite to backup your OS next time!
Hope this helps!

Maybe you are right. Because i recovered files in multi-user mode.
