MPE - Instalation

Hi there
I have an HP -3000 server, the disk has been wiped and I'm not familiar with installation of MPE.

Where to get an installation files, how to start etc.

Bets regards

Re: MPE - Instalation


If you have HP support, now would probably be an excellent time to open a call with them.

Do you have any tapes - a full backup or a tape labelled SLT perhaps?

How long ago was the system up and running?

Re: MPE - Instalation

I'm using this system only for training purposes.
I have a tape labeled as iX 6.0.
But have no idea how to start.

Re: MPE - Instalation

Hello Piotr,

It looks like you'll have to start from scratch.

I recommend you follow Chapter #2 "Checklist K - Install a new system" of the "HP 3000 MPE/iX Release 6.0 System Software Maintenance Manual (Release C.60.00)" available right here :

You may choose to use "Checklist J - Reinstall using a CSLT" should you have a current IO configuration & CSLT tapes.

Hope this helps. Good Luck.
