How do determine which disk the server booted from.

I have an N4000 class server running HPUX 11.0 and it has Mirror Disk UX set up to the root, boot, and swap LVs as well as the the other unix file systems. My questions is how do I determine which disk the system booted from. Since I have two bootable disks, the primary and the mirror copy, I would like to know which one was used at boot time.

echo "boot_string/S"|adb -k /stand/vmunix /dev/kmem

will also tell you that.

Hi,

Be careful that using setboot or lvlnboot -v or any such command will only give you the default boot disk, but I don't know any command to find out if you've interrupted the boot process and used another ISL or another kernel.
