Re: Boot sequence of Itanium server and integrity server

>>Itanium server and integrity server.

There shouldn't be a difference. "Itanium" and "Integrity" are different terms for the same type of server.

"Itanium" refers to the processor or architecture of the server. You may have seen "IA" which means Itanium Architecture.

"Integrity" refers to the specific models of server HP sells that use the "Itanium" CPUs.

Re: Boot sequence of Itanium server and integrity server

Hi Irshad,

As explained by Patrick, Integrity series uses Itanium processors. So both terms are same.

The below thread discuss the same

==>Also explain MP and GSP mode.procedure to get to the MP or GSP from HPUX booted in multiuser mode.

MP will have an IP adress and you can do a telnet/ssh(if availabale). It doesnt matter how you booted your OS.

If you want to go to console, you need to connect to MP, from MP prompt do

MP>co

This will show you the console of the syste. If the os is booted you can see the OS. Else you can the see the system booting till EFI shell if everything goes perfect.

Re: Boot sequence of Itanium server and integrity server

one way to go would be to compare the administrator's guide for an HP 9000 - for example an rp4310 with the administrator's guide for an HP Integrity - say an rx2660.

You will find that there are many more "features" on the Integrity side, with the Integrity side making a stop-over through uEFI.

To get to the MP or GSP from HP-UX would be like getting to it from any other system - you would telnet/ssh to the MP/GSP (assuming the systems were all new enough to have a lan connected MP/GSP. It was an available option on the first Integrity systems, standard (with iLO) on the current Integrity systems.

Re: Boot sequence of Itanium server and integrity server

Hi irshad

Difference between PA-RISC and Integrity boot

PDC/IODC is replaced by PAL/SAL on Integrity servers which is responsible for initial hardware tests . The BCH on PARISC servers is replaced by the EFI boot manager for the default boot path which is consulted from NVRAM also called as stable storage on Integrity servers. In integrity servers the boot loader is hpux.efi. These are some significant differences. However scripts like /sbin/ioinit, /sbin/bcheckrc, /sbin/init.d/ remain the same. As of my knowledge GSP is the analogous term for MP console on legacy systems (older servers).
