bootptab Ignite-UX

Hi, all !!

 

I have read many docs, but can't find ask to question.

 

I have:

1) Some IA-64 servers with HP-UX using APA (LB_MAC)

2) if disaster take place, I don't know from which LAN adapter I shall recover. 

3) DHCP pool of non-productive addresses for recovery isn't an option. All IP in DC are static, security rule of ministry's object.

 

I want to know how to do it:

1) Two records with same hostname and different ha?

2) Ignite allow two ha in bootptab config?

 

Sorry for bad English.

Re: bootptab Ignite-UX

I understand that you would like to know if it is possible to use different LAN mac address for the same hostname in /etc/bootptab.

 

Ans: Yes, you can use more than one hardware address for the same hostname in /etc/bootptab. 

 

Refer the below example for details:

*************************************************************************************************************

# vi /etc/bootptab

 

ignite-defaults:\

ht=ethernet:\

hn:\

bf=/opt/ignite/boot/nbp.efi:\

bs=61

 

IgniteClientA:tc=ignite-defaults:ha=00d009000000:ip=190.40.101.22:sm=255.255.248.0:gw=190.1.48.1:ds=190.1.48.11

IgniteClientA:tc=ignite-defaults:ha=00c0a0000000:ip=190.40.101.22:sm=255.255.248.0:gw=190.1.48.1:ds=190.1.48.11

*************************************************************************************************************

 

In the above example the client "IgniteClientA" has 2 entries for different MAC addresses namely 00d009000000 and 00c0a0000000
