1. Interrupt at Boot Sequence.
(Press any key to interrupt within 10 seconds)\
2. Main Menu: Enter Command>> COfiguration
3.Configuration Menu: Enter Command >> FastBoot OFF

Shao ,

What are you seeing when you press "ESC" ????
it must be the main menu, with prompt witing for your commands ..
be sure you press ESC quickly after power on

Hi Shao,
After the System is booted you can set the FAST-BOOT off as follows:

# setboot -t FASTBOOT=off
# setboot -v
This display's the changed value.

HI,
After changing the Value of FASTBOOT you will see the current setting as ON only but the NEXT-BOOT will show it as OFF. So you need to reboot the system and the change will take effect.

Re: A question about install hp-ux

Hi,

I'm afraid the B2600 firmware does not support setboot -t or -v.

You will have to stop the boot at the BCH (boot console handler).

If you cannot interrupt the boot at BCH, in order to go to COnfig menu, chances are that the system is set to "SECURE" mode. In that case you need to physically disconnect the disk. Then you will be set to BCH where you can set SECURE off.

Bernhard

Re: A question about install hp-ux

What Bernhard is saying is that you need to disconnect the actual disk drive from which the system boots. When the workstation is in SECURE mode, interrupts to the boot process are not allowed. This is to keep unauthorized people from compromising a workstation by rebooting in single-user mode and gaining priveleged access to the system.

With the boot disk disconnected, you will be able to access the Boot Console Handler (BCH) once the boot process times out.

The B2600 is probably booting from an internal LVD SCSI disk. In order to disconnect this boot disk, you will need to remove the cover and disconnect the SCSI cable connecting the disk to the controller. Better yet, just disconnect the power cable from the disk. The effect will be the same and you won't risk damaging the SCSI cable.

Best Regards,

Dave
