Ignite recovery error

We recently updated a server to HPUX 11.31 and this server has been added to as client to our ignite server which is running 11.11.

Now the problem is we are unable to run make_net_recovery image from the client as it says the ignite version is higher than the one in the ignite server.Is the only solution is to downgrade the ignite version in the client?If so where could I download Ignite-UX  C.7.2.94.Please help


ERROR:   The version of the tools used for system recovery on "SERVERA" is newer than the version found on the server system "SERVERB".  You need to either
         update the version of Ignite-UX on the server or down-date the version on "SERVERA"

Re: Ignite recovery error


let's start with your 11.11 server.


Check that the required tools for 11.31 installed

# swlist | grep -i ignite

 This should show something like:


  IGNITE                                C.7.12.519     HP-UX Installation Utilities (Ignite-UX)
  Ignite-UX-11-11                       C.7.12.519     HP-UX Installation Utilities for Installing 11.11 Systems
  Ignite-UX-11-23                       C.7.12.519     HP-UX Installation Utilities for Installing 11.23 Systems
  Ignite-UX-11-31                       C.7.12.519     HP-UX Installation Utilities for Installing 11.31 Systems

 Now check if the default depot for recovery is available on the 11.11 server

# swlist -l depot | grep -i recover

 Default would be /var/opt/ignite/depots/recovery_cmds


If it does not exist run 

# /opt/ignite/lbin/pkg_rec_depot [-f]

to create it. 


Now to your 11.31 client - remove everything regarding ignite from it.


Install the recovery commands

# swinstall -s SERVERB:/var/opt/ignite/depots/recovery_cmds IUX-Recovery


Now it should work. You can run your make_net_recovery with the '-u' option to get the clients updated automatically to the current server version.

>>Now to your 11.31 client - remove everything regarding ignite from it.

# swlist -l product|grep -i ignite

Re: Ignite recovery error

Yes, all you need for the recovery is the product IUX-Recovery which can be installed from the Ignite server as described above.
