Re: boot hpux

Sounds like it's dead.

Do an 'lvlnboot -v' to show the boot disks and then do an 'ioscan -fnC disk' and see if both boot disks show up. If they don't, one is probably dead.

You could also do a 'vgdisplay -v vg00' and see if all disks in VG00 are available.

Re: boot hpux

Hi

Use ioscan -fnC disk and look any unclaimed disk is there or use dd command on the primary disk.

Re: boot hpux

The path 0/1/1/0... points to internal disks connected to the built-in SAS controller.

What do you get by running

Shell> map -r

Any fs_ entries there?


Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: boot hpux

Hi..

Try the following options:

- Run mkboot on the primary disk
- diskinfo and dd on primary disk
- Check if mirroring is proper else try mirroring the disk if alternate is good.

Regds..
Don't fix that what ain't broke

Re: boot hpux

So, if the primary drive is detected by the OS and does not produce any lbolt errors (check the output of the "dmesg" command) it might be a configuration problem.

Maybe whoever installed the OS on the system did it on the alternate disk first and then missed a bootloader installation step while setting up mirroring?

Please run these commands and show the output:

efi_ls -d /dev/rdsk/c3t1d0s1 /EFI/HPUX
efi_ls -d /dev/rdsk/c3t0d0s1 /EFI/HPUX

efi_cp -d /dev/rdsk/c3t1d0s1 -u /EFI/HPUX/AUTO /tmp/autofile1

efi_cp -d /dev/rdsk/c3t0d0s1 -u /EFI/HPUX/AUTO /tmp/autofile0

cat /tmp/autofile1 /tmp/autofile0
