Insert HPUX CD.

With MP LAN console or serial connected turn on power or reset via MP with RS command.

From BCH, search for devices, select CD drive. Ignite installer will appear. Either follow menus or review installation documentation.

Re: how to install software on rp8640 server

which port on the back should I be connected to? If connected to the mplan which address should my laptop be at?
If I am using serial connected what settings must I have on the xterm session?

I would start with reading the manuals on installing HP-UX at http://docs.hp.com
and read the hardware manual

"One more thing to highlight its not "rp8640" machine it is Itanium based rx"8640"."

There is a rp8440 (PA-RISC) and a rx8640 (Integrity), but the procedures are very similar.

Regarding the connection: you should use a null-modem cable to connect your PC to the upper MP cards serial port and use putty emulator (version 0.6) and select serial connection. Default speed is 9600.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
