When I am trying to boot the server through lan, getting the following error.

PXE-EI: Time out.Server did not respond.
Load of core lan port1 failed: Not found.
Press any key to continue.

======
What I have done so far in ignite server is..
1. edit bootptab file and put the entry for lan1 mac addrees ,gateway,client IP ....etc.

I am getting the below information also when I am trying.

Mac Add -
Cleint IP :-
Subnet :-
Bootp server IP :-
Gateway :-
DHCP Server IP :-
Boot File Name : -
Retrieving file size

After that only I get the error as said above after few min.

Please help me on this.

Hi

Check out your /etc/hosts and .rhost file.

Re: Ignite problem

hi
on the ignite server
in /etc/inetd.conf


check that


tftp
instl_boots
instl_bootc


are uncommented


then give
inetd -c


check /etc/services so that the services are not blocked
tftp
instl_bootpc
instl_bootps


make sure that you are choosing the correct interface from the server that you are choosing to boot from and make sure that that entry is there in the /etc/bootptab of the Ignite server.

i assume that the client that you are willing to install is 11.23

Thanks Sujit.

Apologising for the mistake that I wrote as HP UX 11.23 instead of 11.31.


I am trying to install HP UX 11.31 ONLY

Re: Ignite problem

Hi Sujit,

I have checked the entries you said. All the entries are there except instl_bootc on /etc/inetd.conf file.

Re: Ignite problem

Hi

first step is to check if the ignite server is working correctly catering to the tftp requests.

From some working server try doing tftp to the ignite server and see.

tftp
tftp>get /opt/ignite/boot/Rel_B.11.31/IINSTALL
tftp>get /opt/ignite/boot/nbp.efi


if successful, then test the server for bootpquery.

On a running server say server1 that can reach the ignite server do
#bootpquery -s


if both the above are correct that means that the ignite server is correctly handling the tftp as well as bootp requests.


you can also need to use the dbprofile command from the EFI shell of the server that you are wishing to ignite.

assuming that the server you wish to ignite is integrity server, go to the EFi shell and give the command

Shell>dbprofile -dn test -cip -sip -gip -m -b "/opt/ignite/boot/nbp.efi"



-cip --- this can be given as the IP address for the client as mentioned in /etc/bootptab of the ignite server.

then to boot using that profile

Shell> lanboot select -dn test

select the apprpriate LAN card if you have many in the system.

the ignite server should be reachable by this client on the network.

if successful, then test the server for bootpquery.

Re: Ignite problem

Finally I am done by reconfiguring the ignite server.
