Problem loading 11.31 OS on 11.23 VM guest via ignite ?

Hello All,

I have a rx6600 11.23 VM server. I created a guest ( hovm230 ) with (1) disk (c2t0d1)assigned. When I utilized ignite to load 11.23 OS, it scans the i/o and finds the disk,
and loads the 11.23 OS just fine,

but when I select the 11.31 OS via ignite, it is unable to locate the disk ? What am I doing wrong?. Do I have to define the local DVD , and load 11.31 onto the "vm guest" via the DVD ?

Re: Problem loading 11.31 OS on 11.23 VM guest via ignite ?

This is the same virtual machine, right?

What HPVM version are you using? Version 2 does not support 11.31 guests.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Yes, it's the same VM machine.

Re: Problem loading 11.31 OS on 11.23 VM guest via ignite ?

Look again at your VM.

Am I missing something. It shows 1 lan;8G mem;4 CPU. But 0 for disk.

Did you add disk to your VM to accomodate loading an O/S?

I'm new to this VM world, but once I added more disk to my VM and retried to install the O/S it had enough and took off fine using the DVD loading 11.31 EOE guest (Host server 11.23 iA64)

Just a thought,
Rgrds,
Rita

Re: Problem loading 11.31 OS on 11.23 VM guest via ignite ?

Where is your disk?

Is it compatible with 11.31?

Example EMC CX without current firmware doesn't support 11.31.

The only issue we had with igniting vm's was that lan isn't a boot option by default...so you have to add it manually...

Re: Problem loading 11.31 OS on 11.23 VM guest via ignite ?

Hello All,

I'm going to attempt to configure the DVD for VM-guest ( hovm230 ), and see if I can load the 11.31 OS from CD. If this works, it points to Ignite. Keep you posted.

Re: Problem loading 11.31 OS on 11.23 VM guest via ignite ?

Tip for DVD's:

Create ISO images of hpux install media if needed:


Disk 1:
dd if=/dev/rdsk/c0t0d0 of=/var/opt/hpvm/ISO-images/hpux/HPUX11iv3Sep07-OE-Ent-D1.iso bs=64k


Disk 2 (after removing disk 1 and mounting disk2):

dd if=/dev/rdsk/c0t0d0 of=/var/opt/hpvm/ISO-images/hpux/HPUX11iv3Sep07-OE-Ent-D2.iso bs=64k




Add User-specified directory of ISO images:


hpvmmodify -P pcvm0105 -F -a dvd:scsi::file:/var/opt/hpvm/ISO-images/hpux/HPUX11i-OE-Ent-D1.iso



Add local storage:

hpvmmodify -P pcvm0105 -F -a disk:scsi::lv:/dev/vgpcvm0105/rlvdisk1


Go to the console:

hpvmconsole -P pcvm0105 -fi

Go to "Boot option maintenance menu"

Do a "Cold Reset"



Let system boot - it should find the install media.

When it prompts for disk 2, on the vm host:

hpvmmodify -P pcvm0105 -m dvd:scsi:0,1,1:file:/var/opt/hpvm/ISO-images/hpux/HPUX11i-OE-Ent-D2.iso

NOTE: To get the Hardware address (0,1,1) run a hpvmstatus -P VMGUESTNAME -d

# hpvmstatus -P pcvm0104 -d

Re: Problem loading 11.31 OS on 11.23 VM guest via ignite ?

Hello All,

I'm not sure how to attempt to boot directly from DVD? From my "EFI Boot Maintenance Manager" What are the following volumes? I reconize :

Load File [Acpi(PNP0A03,0)/Pci(1|0)/Mac(025919940970)]

This is the mac for my lan card, but the others I'm not sure. I know for pa-risc I could "search IPL" to locate a bootable device, but not sure for ia64.

The image looks fine - same size as mine:

-rw-r--r-- 1 root hpvmsys 1218330624 Oct 19 15:17 HPUX11iv3Sep07-OE-Ent-D2.iso


Boot:IINSTALL?

You shouldn't have to do that...

After assigning the DVD and storage...go to the vm guest console..

Go to "Boot option maintenance menu"

Do a "Cold Reset"

Let system boot - it should find the install media by itself.

Re: Problem loading 11.31 OS on 11.23 VM guest via ignite ?

yes, Geoff, I did a cold reset. I will try it again, and send you the output. How do you tell if your iso file is good ?

When i execute the "hpvmstatus -P hovm230 -V" , and it shows :
version label & version number as 1.20 is this correct?

I located this isoinfo cmd. I think this indicates the iso file created was good ?

Re: Problem loading 11.31 OS on 11.23 VM guest via ignite ?

Do you have the latest firmware installed on that rx6600?

If not - then I think you need it.

I would place a call with HP if I were you.

Re: Problem loading 11.31 OS on 11.23 VM guest via ignite ?

Hello All,

I just wanted to follow-up, and let you know we reloaded the 11.23OS with Dec.07, and all works fine. The 11.31 vmguest are fine. I believe there were some VM sets missing. Thanks for all your help........ :>)
