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:/
IUX-Recovery C.6.10.97 Ignite-UX network recovery tool subset

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 198.152.232.1
* Reading configuration information from server...

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)
service.

Re: Problem installing from ignite.

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."
"/opt/ignite/data/Rel_B.11.23/config"
"/opt/ignite/data/Rel_B.11.23/hw_patches_cfg"
"/var/opt/ignite/config.local"
}

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 ..

Thanks
