HP Integrity BL860c i2, unable to install HP-UX 11i v3

Hi,

 

I am installing new HP Integrity BL860c i2, while installing I am getting following error;

 

WARNING: Could not find Q_BOOT device.  Cannot determine what the boot device was.

 

I also notice following error;

 

krs_read_mfs: Error 5 opening MFS

 

I am using externelly powered, USB DVD ROM via front SUV port on server blade.

 

I have tried different media also, in order to isolate this issue but no luck. Please find detailed output;

Re: HP Integrity BL860c i2, unable to install HP-UX 11i v3

As a workaround you could try the iLO Virtual Media:

 

  1. Stick the DVD into your PC.
  2. Open iLO in your Browser.
  3. Navigate to "Virtual Media".
  4. Click on the "Launch" button in the top right corner (easy to miss).

This is for iLO 01.41.01 (I'm not on 01.51.03 yet)

Re: HP Integrity BL860c i2, unable to install HP-UX 11i v3

SAME ISSUE!!!!! Over and over...NO rescan doesn't help! NO rebooting doesn't help! NO it doesn't matter what device I pick, same error: could not find q_boot device...blah blah {esoteric} nonsense.

 

 

HP needs their feet held to the fire for making garbage like this - it's 2013 HP - dvd roms have been around for awhile.

Today is different and tomorrow the same.

Re: HP Integrity BL860c i2, unable to install HP-UX 11i v3

This was a known problem with older installation media (bad driver, IIRC).
Some more details would be useful - FW versions, install media release, etc ...

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: HP Integrity BL860c i2, unable to install HP-UX 11i v3

Before, we also encountered issues and difficulty installing 11.31 using external DVD drive and always ending up failed.


It happened because we are using NON-HP model of external DVD drive. Upon purchasing and using HP model DVD drive, then it just worked everything perfectly. Now onwards, I still preferr to use any HP DVD drive model when it needed.

 

Cheers!
