i am installing HP-UX (11.31) on my vPAR (v6.0) through the VSP (physical server) ILO Virtual Media.
Whenever the process request for the 2nd installation DVD and i try to disconnect the DVD(1) to reconnect for DVD(2), the installation does not proceed againg. It gives I/O errors. When i execute IOSCAN through the VSP HP-UX, there is no "CLAIMED", rather there is "NO-HW" (NO HARDWARE) at the Virtual Media hardware path, mainwhile the DVD (2) remains reconnected with even green light at the ILO VMedia level.
Please help! I have about 20 vPARs on which i have to install HP-UX.

Installing over vMedia is not flexible anyway, how would you install things in parallel?
Make a dd copy of the media to a file and install from that. Or setup Ignite server if you do not have one and upload the media there and install over network from the server.
Hopefully you are not installing vPar V6.00 (which is some 5 versions behind the latest and greatest)

It is not supporting, but still you want to install multiple vPars you may use Ignite server it is easy.
Follow these quick step,
Ignite ux server configuration
/etc/opt/ignite/inslt_boottab } set up temporary ip address for boot clients
Setup tftp & instl_bootd services in /etc/inetd.conf
Change tftp line changed
Inslt_boots line changed
Verify tftp user
Pwget –n tftp
Setup /etc/exports or /etc/dfs/dfstab
Used SAM TUI
#showmount –e } if shows nothing enable nfs server using SAM
Ignite settings and ignite parameters
#inslt_adm –d > /tmp/instl.cfg
Done following changers
#inslt_adm –f /tmp/instl.cfg
#inslt_adm –d to verify the applied settings
#/opt/ignite/bin/manage_index –a –f….. –c….
Configure system as a ignite server
Verify following files
Restart NFS server
Add lanMAC address of clients
Then boot the client and create boot loadr
