Problem installing from ignite.


Problem installing from ignite.

Hi gurus, I'm having some issue here trying to ignite an hpux 11.23 on an itanium.

I already troubleshoot tftp but now i'm kinda in a loss ... so I'm looking for ideas on how to solve it.

Thanks all for the time!

ignite server is an n4000 hpux 11.11
# swlist | grep -i ignite
# Contacting target "ignite"...
# Target: ignite:/

Ignite-UX-11-23 C.6.10.97 HP-UX Installation Utilities for Installing 11.23 Systems

I'm trying to install a hpux 11.23 on an itanium ... and I'm getting this error:

* Bringing up Network (lan1)
add net default: gateway
* Reading configuration information from server...

* tftp error log follows:
tftp> tftp> tftp> tftp> tftp> Error code 2: Access violation

Failed to read "INDEX" file from install server. Check that the
install server's IP address is correct and the server has the
"Ignite-UX" product loaded and is available via the tftp(1)

Forgot to paste inetd.conf configuration regarding bootpd and tftp

# grep tftp /etc/inetd.conf
# Before uncommenting the "tftp" entry below, please make sure
# that you have a "tftp" user in /etc/passwd. If you don't
# have one, please consult the tftpd(1M) manual entry for
tftp dgram udp wait root /usr/lbin/tftpd tftpd -l\
# grep bootpd /etc/inetd.conf
bootps dgram udp wait root /usr/lbin/bootpd bootpd -d 3

Re: Problem installing from ignite.

To boot from ignite & install any image we need the required os versions`s configuration files to be present & indexed.

Please check the content of /var/opt/ignite/INDEX file. It should contain at least someting like :

cfg "HP-UX B.11.23 Default" {
description "This selection supplies the default system configuration that HP supplies for the B.11.23 release."

If not it could mean that Ignite for 11.23 has not been installed on the server.

Secondly we need to check that whats the model of the Ignite server PA /IA.

So far looks like a indexing issue to me ..
