MPE - Instalation

Hi there
I have an HP -3000 server, the disk has been wiped and I'm not familiar with installation of MPE.

Where to get an installation files, how to start etc.

Bets regards

If you have HP support, now would probably be an excellent time to open a call with them.

Do you have any tapes - a full backup or a tape labelled SLT perhaps?

How long ago was the system up and running?

I'm using this system only for training purposes.
I have a tape labeled as iX 6.0.
But have no idea how to start.

Hello Piotr,

It looks like you'll have to start from scratch.

I recommend you follow Chapter #2 "Checklist K - Install a new system" of the "HP 3000 MPE/iX Release 6.0 System Software Maintenance Manual (Release C.60.00)" available right here :

You may choose to use "Checklist J - Reinstall using a CSLT" should you have a current IO configuration & CSLT tapes.

Hope this helps. Good Luck.
