Re: Not able to find DVD mapping in EFI shell

Hi All ,


I am not sure what I did exactly , But Now its showing only the cdrom

i issued drvcfg -s  and enabled all primary master , sleve and secondary master and sleve ..and then I stopped the controller . after i issued map -r .. then I could find the cdrom .. but its not showing any disk ..

is this something related to raid controller ?

Re: Not able to find DVD mapping in EFI shell

Hi Binu,


Could you please confirm, what is the release  of the HPUX 11i v3.

Is it a ISO image or HP media


Please try to use the latest release of the HPUX11i v3 DVD media from HP.


I hope the new media will resolve your issue.
