Re: add new server to IG-UX server

If you have Ignite server installed then you have the ignite gui ( It also runs with a TUI if you have no X-window manager ). type in ignite.

You can also execute make_net_recovery from the client system, although you will not have any ability to control defaults.

There could very well be a long command line string to do an initial client setup.

Why not just read the man pages ?

Shalom,

1) Install Ignite Server on a system with access to plenty of space for images.

2) The Ignite system includes both a motif (X windows) based GUI and a text based version. You DO NOT need the GUI to do this configuration, It can all be done text based.

Re: add new server to IG-UX server

Check in /opt/ignite/share/doc/ directory for add_newclient manpage

OR

Run below command
/opt/ignite/bin/ignite
This will open text GUI to add the client.

Thanks

You can start GUI just by typing /var/ignite/opt/ignite.
Pls specify your system type i.e PA-RISC or IA ? the config files differ based on processor architecture. So let me know the architecture .

I'll go with Tim's recommendation, just use make_net_recovery command on the the client to get things started.

But if you already have have many vpars doing it, there is probably a cron job/script that does it, get the new machine included in that script.

Thank you all.
I was able to do a test net ignite backup & restore.
