make_net_recovery warning message

After having to restore our OS last week due to disk failures, the make_net_recovery is issuing the following Warning message:

* Preparing to create a system archive
lifls(open): No such device or address
lifls: Can't list /dev/dsk/c11t6d0; file not opened
WARNING: /dev/dsk/c11t6d0 is not a lif volume.
No LIF files on the boot disk will be archived.
Check /stand/bootconf, man bootconf(4), and /dev/dsk to
make sure that the bootconf file is set up correctly.
* The archive is estimated to reach 3407400 kbytes.
* Free space on /var/opt/ignite/recovery/arch_mnt

The disk it is referenceing, although seen by this server, is on the SAN network and used by another server.

How do I eliminate the WARNING message from this servers make_net_recovedy ??

Re: make_net_recovery warning message

What does

# cat /stand/bootconf

give you?

Which is your actual boot disk?

What does

# setboot

give you?

Re: make_net_recovery warning message

/stand/bootconf is incorrect, and setboot shows the correct boot devices:

cnprtam1[/osg1/log] # cat /stand/bootconf
l /dev/dsk/c11t6d0
cnprtam1[/osg1/log] # setboot
Primary bootpath : 1/0/0/3/0.6.0

Mike,

Edit your /stand/bootconf to the correct boot disk (check the doc below).

make_net_recovery is receiving warning messages regarding the lif DocId: UIUXKBRC00011961

Re: make_net_recovery warning message

As Robert says, you need to manually edit /stand/bootconf and put in /dev/dsk/c6t6d0 instead of /dev/dsk/c11t6d0
