D380 CPU Firmware upgrade

After interrupting boot process, then doing alternate boot system starts reading tape with firmware file on it
then gives the following error message.

IPL error: bad LIF magic
error reading IPL

This is on a D380(2) running HP-UX 10.20, The firmware is version 37.28. Was told that firmware had to be updated to 42.11 in order to run HP-UX 11.0. Firmware file cksum command sizes are correct.

Thanks

Re: D380 CPU Firmware upgrade

When you created the tape using dd did you specify bs=2k?

When you downloaded the file (and possibly transferred from PC to D-box) did you make certain that all transfers were binary? If the cksums were done on the D-box, the transfers were ok.

Finally, known good tape and clean drive?


If it ain't broke, I can fix that.
