Re: Ignite Booting Problem

This looks like you are trying to boot an Integrity server using the PA-RISC method.

Better read the chapter

"Ignite-UX, the LAN, the LAN card, and vparboot -I"


"Installing vP ars with Ignite-UX on Integrity"

in the admin guide.

Consider to use "vpardbprofile" or use


# vparboot -p <target_partition> -I [ [-d dbprofile_name]| [-s
ignite_ux_server_ip [-c client_ip -g gateway_ip -m subnet_mask] -b boot_file [-o



vparboot -p keira2 -I -s -c -g -m -b /opt/ignite/boot/nbp.efi -o




# vparboot -p keira2 -I

Hope this helps!
