Ignite hangs at save_config

Hi all,

I have N-4000 rp7400 running HP-UX 11.00.

When I run "make_tape_recovery" command it hangs at "save_config" for Ignite-UX B.3.7.

Recently I upgrade with Ignite-UX c.7.2 but, the status of make_tape-recovery is same.

# make_tape_recovery -x inc_entire=vg00
* Creating local directories for configuration files and archive.

Hello shreekanth.

do an ioscan on your hardware to see if anything is in a NO_HW state that could be one reason.

check you /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log file for any error messages.

Re: Ignite hangs at save_config

Hi Srikant,

The save_config command is used to validate the hardware configuration and disk
layout of the system. One of the commands it uses is /usr/sbin/lssf.
The lssf command is linked to /sbin/mksf, and (in this case) was
found to be defective, so a working version was copied over from another 11.0
system and relinked to /sbin/mksf, rmsf and insf commands. The symbolic link
to /usr/sbin/lssf was also verified.

To see exactly where save_config is failing, this command can be used:

# sh -x /opt/ignite/bin/save_config > /tmp/save_config.out 2>&1

if we cannot see anything from this save_config.out file, my suggestion please log case to HP for help.

Problem never ends, you must know how to fix it
