Can someone help me from step 1 to install Ignite on 10.20?

I know I've asked several Ignite questions... but here is my dilemma.

I need to install it ASAP on my HP9000 server running 10.20. I have the CD with the software on it. I can bring it up in SAM in the install window. I can't put it in /opt because I'm at 93% capacity and really can't get rid of much. It was poor planning from the beginning as to the size of the volumes. I have plenty of space on other volumes however. I tried putting it in /users4 - and I was getting errors... How do I go about putting it in a different location then somehow pointing /opt/ignite to that location? Or will that even work?

Hi,

Try this

rm /opt/ignite
mkdir /users4/ignite
ln -s /users4/ignite /opt/ignite

Reinstall ingite-ux

Hi Andy:

I assume that you cannot expand '/opt' for anyone of several reasons.

The '/opt/ignite' directory is fixed, but you can create a separate mountpoint (on any logical volume on any volume group) and then install to that.

Regards!

You guys ROCK! I got a successful Ignite tape! w00t!

Anyway, now that I got it created - is there a way to verify that it is good and possibly see the contents?

Hi Andy,
I would test before all to see if you can boot from the tape:
1) Boot from the tape and cancel operation when it prompts for the "Press within 10 seconds to cancel batch mode installation"...

Then
See what is on tape...
2) Copy the 1rst part of tape:
# dd if=/dev/rmt/0mn (or whatever device) of=/tmp/LIFfile bs=2k

Now you can:
# lifls /tmp/LIFfile -l
and see some of its files using lifcp:
# lifcp /tmp/LIFfile:CONFIG /tmp/config; vi /tmp/config
...
Rewind and go to next lot:
# mt -t /dev/rmt/0mn rew
# mt -t /dev/rmt/0mn fsf 1
and see whats on tape
# pax -vf /dev/rmt/0mn
or
# tar -tvf /dev/rmt/0mn
...
Dont forget to rewind and eject and put to read only the DAT if its good...

All the best
Victor

Thanks again all! I have verified my tape and I'm going to make a 2nd copy right now.
