HP-UX BL860c Installation Error

Hello,
I have some HP Integrity BL860c servers which I'm installing HP-UX 11i V3. After selecting the language and the terminal (VT100 for my case)the next step is to "Install HP-UX". At this point I get the following output. I have tried different media and even a different blade but same model but still no success.
Could anyone assist me on what I could be doing wrong?

I have attached the whole file just in case.

Re: HP-UX BL860c Installation Error

IMHO, two possible reasons:

1) the DVD drive does not support this server to boot from

2) you are not using the 11.31 september release

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: HP-UX BL860c Installation Error

Hi ,

I think BL860c will not support 11.31.

BL860c OS Support:-



HP-UX 11i v2 Mission Critical Operating Environment
HP-UX 11i v2 Enterprise Operating Environment
HP-UX 11i v2 Foundation Operating Environment
HP-UX 11i v2 Technical Computing Operating Environment
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS & ES v4
Novell SUSE Enterprise Linux v10
Windows Server 2003, Enterprise and Datacenter (64-bit)
OpenVMS I64 Foundation Operating Environment for Itanium Servers
OpenVMS I64 Enterprise Operating Environment for Itanium Servers
OpenVMS I64 Mission Critical Operating Environment for Itanium Servers

fyi:-

Re: HP-UX BL860c Installation Error

Hi,

You need to use 11iv3 update 1 CD.


HP-UX 11i v3 Update 1 delivers incremental functionality for graceful growth, constant uptime, and optimized performance

Now run HP-UX 11i v3 on HP Integrity server blades.
Mass Storage Stack, delivering elegant storage growth with expansion to 100 zettabytes. Storage reconfiguration takes a fraction of the time older systems require.
Online memory and partition reconfiguration eliminates related downtime and facilitates workload optimization.
Dynamic Root Disk keeps users running while system managers upgrade and maintain systems.
For software developers: enhanced compilers increase application performance 5% to 10% while optimizing multi-core performance.
PCI-E devices in entry-class HP Integrity servers are supportedâ increasing options choices.

Re: HP-UX BL860c Installation Error

The page includes this note:

"NOTE: For a more complete and up to date information on HP-UX 11i support, please visit the HP-UX11i website at http://www.hp.com/go/hpux11i "

This page says:

"HP-UX 11i v3 and Integrity BL860c Server Blade: the ideal combination! "

The HP-UX quickspecs lists this blade too as supported hardware, see

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12079_na/12079_na.HTML#Supported%20Hardware




Also the the september release notes - what's new:

http://docs.hp.com/en/5992-1996/ch04s02.html

"The Hardware Enablement Patch Bundle (HWEnable11i) for HP-UX 11i v3 provides patches required for new systems and for add-on hardware supported on HP-UX 11i v3, including I/O adapters and devices.

...

The HWEnable11i bundle includes patches for the following server models:

HP Integrity BL860c blades with zx2 chipset and C-class enclosure
"

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: HP-UX BL860c Installation Error

Hi all,
Thanks a lot for all the input. I've just come from the client's site.

Mohan,
I tried 11i Ver2 but got some errors that I've attached.

Torsen and Oviwan,
I will have to look for the September release of HP-UX 11i V3 and give it another try. I will give a full update once I do this.

Again, thanks a lot.
Torsten.

Re: HP-UX BL860c Installation Error

It's the same for HP-UX 11.23, release notes for June 2007 lists the HP Integrity BL860c blades, but if your media too old you will see errors like you did.

http://docs.hp.com/en/5992-2872/5992-2872.pdf

page 105

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: HP-UX BL860c Installation Error

Hi all,
I have finally installed the blade servers.
I used 11i Version 2.
Thanks so much for the assistance.
