Re: Not able to boot the PA-RISC server through Ignite.
[ Edited ]

The SEA command in some older PARISC servers cannot identify LAN cards as bootable -- it was originally designed for disks and tapes. The command:

 

boot lan.12.34.56.78 install

 

This will work as long as your Ignite network server is on the same subnet and it has been properly setup as an install server. As suggested, you can use your Install DVD to boot from or create a CD that will boot your server to the Ignite menu where you can enter the server address and gateway/router information.

 

 

>> boot 10/0/5/1/0/6/0 install

 

This will not work as the IP address is required to boot.

 

What is the model of the client you are booting, and what does sea return?

Have you ever been able to boot from this Ignite server before?
