make_tape_recovery: make_medialif failed creating boot LIF

This is Ignite-UX version C.6.8.152 on hpux 11.0 (I am not sure if it's the latest version available for 11.0)

What does it mean and what can I do about it?


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

make_medialif: ERROR: Unsupported local system OS release value ("B.11.00"); no "/opt/ignite/boot/Rel_B.11.00" directory exists on this system. Either that release is not supported by Ignite-UX or the needed install kernel and RAM file system files are not installed on this system. Invoke "make_medialif -?" for a usage summary.

It looks like your ignite s/w was not installed properly.

I would recomend to swremove the existing version and download and swinstall it again.

Re: make_tape_recovery: make_medialif failed creating boot LIF

Hi Mike,

You will need to install the complete Ignite product, i.e. the product marked "IGNITE" (C.7.x) or marked "B5725AA" (B.6.x). This will allow ignite images for all versions, though C.7.x does not allow before 11.0, and B.6.x will not do 11iv3.

If you only ever want to ignite 11.0 then use the subset marked "Ignite-UX-11.00". You may do well to swremove any previous versions of Ignite first.

Hope that helps

Mike.

Re: make_tape_recovery: make_medialif failed creating boot LIF

There is a new bundled version for all Os's out now. They just updated it again for September.

http://docs.hp.com/en/IUX/download.html

You can download the entire bundle or just your version for a specific OS type.

Remember to swremove your old version first.

Mike,

I tried to check for latest copy of 11.00 ignite-ux

Ignite-IA-11-22 B.5.2.124 HP-UX Installation Utilities for Installing 11.22 IPF Systems
Ignite-IA-11-23 B.5.2.124 HP-UX Installation Utilities for Installing 11.23 IPF Systems
Ignite-UX-10-20 B.5.2.124 HP-UX Installation Utilities for Installing 10.20 Systems
Ignite-UX-11-00 B.5.2.124 HP-UX Installation Utilities for Installing 11.00 Systems
Ignite-UX-11-11 B.5.2.124 HP-UX Installation Utilities for Installing 11.11 Systems

It is in March 2004 CD. Where you C.6.8.152 from? i think it is for 11iv1 version.

Can I please recommend that you read:

http://www.docs.hp.com/en/5992-1977/5992-1977.pdf

It discusses the various issues you can encounter when installing different Ignite bundles, how to update, dealing with mismatched filesets, etc.
