new release of ignite

I installed a new release of Ignite-Ux (3.2), and I discovered that make_recovery (obsolete) command is repleced by make_tape_recovery, then I need to tell me which the arguments that match -AvC, I mean : make_recovery -AvC

Thanks for your help.

Here is the make_tape_recovery command that I use:

/opt/ignite/bin/make_tape_recovery -a /dev/rmt/0mn -I -v -x inc_entire=vg00

You can do a man make_tape_recovery for more info.

The newer versions of Ignite are vastly improved. The 'make_tape_recovery' command for vg00 looks like 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 the old 'make_recovery'. '-I' causes the Ignite process to be interactive when booting from tape.

It still has -A and -v option but it does not have -C option anymore for creating the system status file.

Is photography a hobby or another way to spend $

Re: new release of ignite

This is how I modified my script to use the make_tape_recovery command

/opt/ignite/bin/make_tape_recovery -a /dev/rmt/0mn -A -I -v -x inc_entire=vg00 -x inc_entire=vg01

On my machine vg01 has links to some dirs in var & opt.


Take it as it comes.

I use make_tape_recovery -AvI. The advantage when I want to reinstall the system it will let me use GUI and I can make chanes to my configuration.

Hi mostefai,
make_recovery still works at the 3.2 release, only it gives you a message that in a future release make_tape_recovery will be called if you use the make_recovery command. I continue to use make_recovery because the C option for check recovery is not available for make_tape_recovery yet, and HP tells me that it will not be available until sometime in 2002.
