how do I install it from the tar file?

any one with insight... I downloaded Ignite for 10.20 and have it in /tmp/ignite/ and expanded it.. the FAQs are convaluded and talk about NFS and all that other stuff. I am interested in Using Ignite in my BCP scheme to get a flash copy of the OS to tape so in the event a drive goes south I can boot from tape and restore.
Everyone says to use ignite. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: how do I install it from the tar file?

Hi Rex:

You use 'swinstall' to install the Ignite product. Simply download it to your server and specify the ".tar" file as the source depot. No reboot is necessary for the installation.

To make a 'make_tape_recovery' of vg00 use this:

# make_tape_recovery -x inc_entire=vg00 -I -v -a /dev/rmt/0mn

The '-I' option of make_tape_recovery is the *same* as the '-i' option of make_recovery. '-I' means cause the Ignite process to be interactive when booting from tape.

Note, too, the "no-rewind" option used with the tape.

Re: how do I install it from the tar file?

You probably have a .depot file for Ignite and you need to "swinstall" that product on your machine the same as any other HP software.

You may have to do a "swreg" first to see the depot as an allowed software source from "Local Directory".

Once Ignite is installed, you can look in /opt/ignite/bin and do a "make_recovery" to tape that includes the entire vg00 and is bootable for recovery use.

Change path hp1:/path/.depot

Re: how do I install it from the tar file?

Hi Rex:

Your Ignite file will probably be named "ignite_10.20.tar". Use that name. If this file is in the /tmp directory, then the full depot path would be "/tmp/ignite_10.20.tar".
