INSTALL HPUX on HPVM 4.3 VM "vm01" using ISO from remote location.

Hello

 

I am new to HPUX 11.31, I want to create a vm says ‘vm01’ with HPUX 11.31 installed in it.

 

I have a Server on which HPVM 4.3 is install with all the patches and it is running fine.

 

I am not physically in front of that server(I am at some remote location), I an connected via telnet.

 

Now for your reference I have shown some commands which are essential for you to help me ;)

 

I have follow the process, you can find it as attachment.

 

Please let me know where I am wrong, I got stuck out here and I want to proceed further and install HPUX B.11.31 in vm host.

 

Lease let me know if additional info required.

 

Thanks in advance.

The fact that EFI shell seems only block device (blkX), but no filesystem (i.e. no fsX:) suggests that you do not have a bootable DVD. HPUX 11.31 comes on 2 DVDs and the name of the file that you have ...11.31_2.ISO most likely

means that you are using the 2of2 DVD and not the bootable one (1of2).

Thanks for the quick response.

 

I added disk 1 and disk 2
named "B.11.31_1.ISO" and "B.11.31_2.ISO".

 

Now what should I do next?

 

Thanks in advance

Well, short answer is - follow HPVM Admin manual, chapter 8, Installing HP-uX guest...
