Updating from HP-UX 11.23 to 11.31 rx7640 with 4 vPars

Dear HP-UX Gurus

We are trying to upgrade HP-UX 11.23 to 11.31 rx7640 with 4 vPars with minimum down time. We encounter the following error message:

The following error occurs which aborts the update of HP-UX.

* Running "preinstall" script for fileset "OS-Core.SYS2-ADMIN".
* Installing files "OS-CORE.SYS2-ADMIN, r=B.11.31" (19 of 2065).
* Running "postinstall" script for fileset "OS-Core.SYS2-ADMIN".
ERROR: Failed to detect an EFI file system on device: Boot If this
device file is not on your root disk, then check to ensure that the
/stand/bootconf file contains the correct information. See the
bootconf (4) man page for details.
* Running "postinstall" script for fileset "OS-CORE.SYS2-ADMIN".
failed with 1 error.
ERROR: The "postinstall" script for fileset "OS-CORE.SYS2-ADMIN"
failed (exit code "1"). The script location was
"/var/tmp/BAAa29575/catalog/OS-CORE.2/SYS2-ADMIN/postinstall".
ERROR: The install phase has suspended.
ERROR: Aborting the install phase.

We took a look at the /stand/bootconf file and the boot disks are all
listed there.

Any help is appreciated.

One of our forum user named Olga successfully upgraded 11.23 to 11.31. Hope you can send me some tips.

Thanks in advance

Hi Johnson,

We are using update ux.
I look at Olga's profile but found nothing about her email address.


Hi HP-UX Gurus

I need to update around 45 to 60 servers from 11.23 to 11.31, some of them are in vPar.

Can anyone send me a procedure how to do it in a short period of time with minimum downtime.

Thanks in Advance
