Integrity BL860c i2 - Installing HP-UX 11.23

[ Edited ]

Hello!

 

I am having an issue installing HP-UX 11.23 on Integrity BL860c i2. I have mounted the CD that I have on my laptop through virtual media.

 

When the blade is booting to "HP-UX Boot Loader for IPF - Revision 2.029", it allows me to go into UEFI Shell. I enter the command to run ":IINSTALL" but it keeps looping back to the boot screen.

 

Was there a way for me to explore the CD and run the install file from there? I was able to do that on a hprx2600 system.

 

Thank You!

Jeremy

No way, this blade is supported with 11.31 only (cannot remember the minimum release version at the moment, sorry.).


Hope this helps!

I'm not familiar with HP-UX but regarding your question,

 

IS there a way for me to explore the CD and run the install file from there...?

 

Once the virtual media mounts your local copy of the HP-UX media,  you should be able to see a new FSx device from the uefi shell of the BL860C i2 .  Use the uefi shell command map-r  to get a listing of the FS devices.  These are the devices that have a uefi file system (FAT32). One of these devices will be your HP-UX distribution on the virtual media.

 

You can use the cd command to change your directory to this new FSx device that corresponds to your virtual media.

 

example

 

shell> cd fs2:

fs2> 

 

Now you can use the ls and cd commands to explore the HP-UX media.  I assume the program you will be looking for will be install.efi . you can execute this command by typing install.efi

S_Logan - I believe the serial console is at default for me, but I did change it.

 

Shell> conconfig

Re: Integrity BL860c i2 - Installing HP-UX 11.23

The serial console is still the primary - don't change.

As said, 11.23 CANNOT run on this blade (except as a virtual machine guest - maybe).

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
