Installing hppa 11.23 from ignite

Hello there.

you need to register the depot in INDEX file /var/opt/ignite/INDEX:
cfg "HP-UX B.11.23 Default" {
description "This selection supplies the default system configuration that HP supplies for the B.11.23 release."
"/opt/ignite/data/Rel_B.11.23/config"
"/opt/ignite/data/Rel_B.11.23/hw_patches_cfg"
"/var/opt/ignite/config.local"
}

This is done by:
make_config -r B.11.23

or

make_config -s server:/depot -c /var/opt/ignite/data/Rel_B.11.23/core
and
manage_index -a -f /var/opt/ignite/data/Rel_B.11.23/core

The make_config will create a config file that you can edit to you liking and the manage_index will put info into INDEX file that ignite use for installation.

Hello again.
All of this is done by Ignite setup, and seems to be in place.
I am able to install a itan box from the setup, but on hppa it is not an option in the list.
There must bee some kind of error in the files, since i cannot se them from hppa?

Thanks

Re: Installing hppa 11.23 from ignite

maybe 11.23 OS version is not configured in the ignite version that you use.
You could register the 11.23 core version in 11.11 that may work for hppa. I hope you will inform us about the outcome.

Are you using the newest version of Ignite.

That do HP think?

I solwed the problem !
Because you hawe to boot on 11.23 kernel to install 11.23, you hawe to trick ignite.
My old client had recorded that they ware on 11.11, so i was unable to install 11.23.
The trick is to change the file:
/var/opt/ignite/clients//host.info

The variables:
_hp_ikernel_os_release="B.11.11"
_hp_current_client_release="B.11.11"

id changes to:
_hp_ikernel_os_release="B.11.23"
_hp_current_client_release="B.11.23"

and now it is possible to install 11.23 from the ignite interface.
