Install O/S on L3000

I am trying to install HPUX 11i on an L3000 server and I am running into a problem. I can enter the service console but cannot get the system to boot from the dvd drive. I have tried to turn on autoboot to no avail. For some reason I cannot find the command in the help files in the console to boot from the dvd drive. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Kevin.

Re: Install O/S on L3000

Hi Kevin,

I assume you are using the internal dvd drive.

You need to stop the boot process and put the path in:

---- Main Menu ---------------------------------------------------------------

Command Description
------- -----------
BOot [PRI|ALT|] Boot from specified path
PAth [PRI|ALT] [] Display or modify a path
SEArch [DIsplay|IPL] [] Search for boot devices

COnfiguration menu Displays or sets boot values
INformation menu Displays hardware information
SERvice menu Displays service commands

DIsplay Redisplay the current menu
HElp [|] Display help for menu or command
RESET Restart the system

Main Menu: Enter command or menu > bo 0/0/2/1.2
Interact with IPL (Y, N, or Cancel)?> n


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: Install O/S on L3000

How would i get to the menu, I am using the db25 connected to the console port and I can get into the GSP prompt and the console login, which being a used system has a login and password. I am not able to see that menu at all right now. Any suggestions. Still pretty new to unix and servers so things are different. Thanks for the help. Kevin.
