Re: How to restore Ignite via Network from EFI

Go to EFI, create a dbprofile (see "help dbprofile") and boot using this profile.

For details see the ignite admin guide

http://www.hp.com/go/ignite-UX

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

A better URL for the Admin manual is:

http://bizsupport1.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c01942571/c01942571.pdf

Refer to page 115. Blades support dbprofile so you can create the boot profile like this (use the appropriate IP numbers for your system).

dbprofile -dn myboot -sip 192.168.2.1 -cip
192.168.1.20 -gip 192.168.1.1 -m 255.255.255.0 -b "/opt/ignite/boot/nbp.efi"

Then from an EFI shell, use the command:

lanboot select -dn myboot

The "select" option will show all the network cards - pick the one with a connection to the Ignite server. The rest of the steps are shown in the Admin Manual following the dbprofile deetails starting on page 115.

dbprofile -dn testbprofile -cip 172.25.52.XXX -sip 172.25.52.62 -m 255.255.255.0 -gip 172.25.52.1 -b /opt/ignite/boot/nbp.efi


Shell> dbprofile
Profile List

Profile Name: testbprofile
Network Type: IPv4
Client IP address: 172.25.52.XXX
Gateway IP address: 172.25.52.1
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Server IP address: 172.25.52.62
Boot File: /opt/ignite/boot/nbp.efi
Optional Data:

Shell>lanboot -dn testbprofile


The parameters can be obtained by using the â help â option, but â -cipâ is for client ip, which is a temporary address assigned to the server your are building. â -sipâ is the address of the Ignite server, while â -mâ and â -gipâ is mask and gateway. â -bâ is just the image.
