Hi,
When I try and use the setboot command I get the following:

setboot -v
Primary bootpath : 8/4.5.0
Alternate bootpath : 8/16/5.0.0

Autoboot is ON (enabled)
Autosearch is ON (enabled)

setboot: error accessing firmware - Operation not supported
Unknown error 1 encountered by setboot(1M)
Unknown error 1 encountered by setboot(1M)
#

setboot -t FASTBOOT=on
setboot: error accessing firmware - Operation not supported
Unknown error 1 encountered by setboot(1M)
setboot: error accessing firmware - Operation not supported
Unknown error 1 encountered by setboot(1M)


Any ideas??

You should collect the informations you alraedy have!
Also I can't help you in this case ... :-(
Also maybe it's better to remain in the server forum ....

I hope someone can help you,
good luck

Re: Error running setboot on 11.,11 64bit

nick,

it just sounds like your on an older server?

setboot wasnt configurable in hpux on the older systems, not like the newer ones.

You need to reboot to PDC and you can change it there

Hi again,

RJ always find something in the 'Technical knowledge base' :-))

Please check also:

The firmware you've posted '42.10' is for the D390 class, it seems like you would need:
Patch Name: /firmware_patches/hp/cpu/PF_CULU4211
Description: HP 9000 Dx70/Dx80/R380 Firmware revision 42.11
Date : 02/03/21
Patch Size : 1455 KBytes

I don't know the differences, but maybe it helps.

Oops, I did realise the other day that I'd missed one of the fundementals by not assigning points. I;ll go through my forums and assign points.
