Using setboot - 11iv2/v3

Just a basic question.

 

setboot -v shows a primary and alternate boot path.

I broke all mirroring and removed the alternate device from VG00.

Now I have just a primary boot device and reboot still works fine BUT setboot -v still shows alt path set to the old alt hw path. How do you (or the system) clear the "setboot -a" to null?

IMHO you don't need to do this.

In case the system will boot from the alternate for any reason, the boot will just fail.

Hope this helps!

If you want the old alt hw path to disappear from setboot, just make it primay device also as alternate...

setboot -a primary_hwpath
