Parstatus - unsupported hardware hp-ux 11.11

We moved an os from an rp5450 to a PA8900 cell on an sx2000. The cell is one npar. Everything "appears" to be running ok except when I do a parstatus I get:
=> sudo /usr/sbin/parstatus
Error: Unsupported platform. Command aborted. (-12)

Here is a list of "par" software on the system:

=> sudo /usr/sbin/swlist -l product | grep -i par

Any ideas?

How did you move?

- Ignite + Restore
- Ignite (Golden Image)
- Moved SAN disks and just booted

It seems the os "belives" that you are still on a rp5450 and not on a superdom.
Share what you know, learn what you don't.

We loaded what drivers we thought it might need on the rp5450, did an ignite backup and did the recovery to the superdome. We then ran a patch analysis and installed all patches.

Re: Parstatus - unsupported hardware hp-ux 11.11

Hi Robert,

you most likely need to update (not only patch) several related packages, e.g. partition manager, cimserver and all the providers.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: Parstatus - unsupported hardware hp-ux 11.11

Torsten,
It was ParMgr that had a problem. When I did the swinstall on it it found 5 modules that weren't installed, Apache, Tomcat and three Parmanager components. Parstatus now works.

Thanks,

Bob

Re: Parstatus - unsupported hardware hp-ux 11.11

ParMgr was installed when the system was on the rp5450. THe only thing I can think of is that it didn't install the 3 missing ParMgr components because of that. Thanks to all for your assistance!
