Re: Boot failure on L2000 server

Looks like you either have a disk problem or an internal SCSI problem. Does the system still boot? If the system is still operational, place a hardware call with HP. There will be more of the message that has some hexdecimal numbers that a hardware engineer should be able to interpret as to what the real problem could be.

Re: Boot failure on L2000 server

From the BCH menu, run the 'SEA' command to see what boot paths are available. If you interact with IPL/ISL you can't just type in 'bo p0'.
The command string is 'hpux ....'
If you still don't understand try this:

control B
press the return until you get the GSP> prompt.
RS
start the boot process again, interrupt the boot sequence and then run the 'SEA' command to see the boot paths that the system sees.
