Re: IPL menu

Do you try a "man 1m isl"? I would also do a "man hpux". That should tell you all you need to know; perhaps the most common (other than the default boot, of course) use of isl is to bring the machine up in single-user mode for maintenance (or because you've forgotten the root password).
If it ain't broke, I can fix that.

Re: IPL menu

By the way, the terms isl and ipl are used interchangeably depending upon the platform/firmware version.

Manuales,

Also if you take a look at this page it will show you with some examples the startup process in an hp-ux system

# man 1m isl
# man 1m boot
