Re: Hp9000 827s/837s

I have never heard of this server.

Assuming it has a cd-rom, insert a core OS cd-rom in the cd-rom drive.

boot the box from the console.

interupt at the 10 second prompt

sea

Try and guess which item is the cd-rom(usually the last)

if the cd-rom is P4 then

boot p4

N On Interact.

You may get a choice or go direct into the Ignite install interface. When you get there, tallyho, install away.

Re: Hp9000 827s/837s

these are from before the "nova" servers, E,F,G,H,I, which were released about 1990.
you might be able to get 10.20 to run on one of these systems, but 11.x certainly isn't.

Re: Hp9000 827s/837s

Apparently 11.00 supports these old models. First shipped with 8.00 tho.

Have not found a manual. Best bet would be to check with refurbishers that are still selling them on the net.

Re: Hp9000 827s/837s

Probably no docs exist for these. I do know that the 827s was upgradable to:
847S, H-class, I-class

While the 837s was upgradable to G-class

I assume that they are similar to the Nova systems. I have worked with a couple of the Novas before, as have many on these forums, If you tell us exactly what you're trying to find out, perhaps we can help you.

Re: Hp9000 827s/837s

All right, first things first. do you have a terminal, or a PC with a serial connection?

do you have a MUX panel for the server? you will need to connect a MUX panel to the server VIA proprietary cable. then connect the terminal or serial port to port '0' on the MUX panel.

The serial connection should be set to:
8 data bits
1 stop bit
no parity
flow control off
9600 baud

power it up and see what you see.

Re: Hp9000 827s/837s

more info:

this is for the 827s, but i'm pretty sure the 837s is very similar.

The cable that goes in the Core I/O card is the 5062-3074. This connects to a 5062-3054 panel, and the console (terminal or PC) connects to port '0' as I had mentioned.

Re: Hp9000 827s/837s

The 827 and 837 were two of th eorigional NOVA series 800 servers, launched many years ago. They will run 32bit HP-UX 11.00

Re: Hp9000 827s/837s

Hi Lorenzo,

I can see that 827 is H20 and F30.

You can connect a console and install HP-UX 10.20.

You can refer
Installing and Updating HP-UX 10.x Guide
http://docs.hp.com/hpux/os/10.x/index.html

hth.
Everything is possible

Re: Hp9000 827s/837s

Dear all ,

I have connected the ADPII to the MUX port.
The console is connected to ADP with serial cable to port 0.
The ADP has 2 led (twice on) one green (for power) and another one for link, but the cursor is blinking on top of the screen .
I have already reset the console (ctrl D) without result.

What I can do now (????)

Thanks in advance

Lorenzo
