HP-UX 11.31 cold install failed on rx2660

Hello all,

 

I have been trying to cold install a rx2660 machine. Installation is failed with below Error message screen at /opt/ignite/bin/itool screen.

 

========

itool must exist. because the /var/opt/ignite/INDEX file is missing. One possibility is the server setup is not complete. To finish it, run the make_config(1M) command.

========

 

Could somebody explain me what it is all about and how to resolve it?

 

Here are few details and procedure I've followed.

 

machine model : rx2660, IA64

Media used : HP-UX 11.31 September 2008

 

Installation Method selected:

 

*media only installation

*Advanced Installation - to change LVM information

 

Thanks in advance,

Nagesh

Your OS release should be OK.  Do you happen to have a later version to try?  Are you booting an actual DVD or are you using an Ignite server?

 

Check the system firmware.  Update it if needed.

Thanks Bob, Yes, I'm using original shiped DVD. I've upgraded SFW, BMC, MP firmware to latest.

 

I'll try with later relased shipment.
