OS boot is failed from alternate disk

Hi All,

As per customer requirement,  I have configured alternate disk from another storage for mirror purpose in original OS. 

Mention that both disk (primary and alternate) presented from different storage(HPE MSA) and OS version is HP-UX 11.31.

After mirror configured , I have rebooted  OS and select alternate path from boot manager during boot time, then OS is successfully boot. But when initially unpresent primary disk and reboot OS, booting is failed  from 2nd disk.

Please check my bellow output which is collect after mirror creation.

bash-4.3# dmesg | grep -i "Boot device"
Boot device's HP-UX HW path is: 35/0/2/2/0/0/1.0x227000c0ff2585a5.0x0

bash-4.3# setboot
Primary bootpath : 35/0/2/2/0/0/1.0x227000c0ff2585a5.0x0 (/dev/rdisk/disk4)
HA Alternate bootpath : 33/0/1/0/0/0/0/2/0/0/1 (LAN Interface)
Alternate bootpath : 35/0/2/2/0/0/1.0x227000c0ff257a8a.0x0 (/dev/rdisk/disk14)

Autoboot is ON (enabled)
Hyperthreading : ON
: ON (next boot)

bash-4.3# cat /stand/bootconf
l /dev/disk/disk4_p2
l /dev/disk/disk14_p2

bash-4.3# vgcfgrestore -n vg00 -l

Volume Group Configuration information in "/etc/lvmconf/vg00.conf"
VG Name /dev/vg00
---- Physical volumes : 2 ----
/dev/rdisk/disk4_p2 (Bootable)
/dev/rdisk/disk14_p2 (Bootable)

 

Please suggest how to solve the issue.

OK, are there some error messages - you're not giving us much to go on here... what actually happens - what do you see on the console? Can you cut and paste the failed boot sequence onto here?
