EFI not finding all Disk drives

Hi,

I have a RX8640 that has 2 nPars and one of the nPars is split into 2 vPars.

On the nPar with the vPars, while the vPars are down and I'n rebooting the nPar I get to the EFI prompt and it only sees 2 out of 4 disk drives, only 1 DVDROM...etc. Once I run "search all", then the EFI sees all 4 disk drives, 2 DVDROM's...etc and I can choose them (for example as fs3:) to boot in to.

Is there any way to configure the EFI to alway do a "search all" so that I don't have to run it each time I reboot the nPar?

Thanks

Andrew

Shalom Andrew,

I have a feeling this is a vpar configuration issue. Disks assinged to the vpar should be visible to that vpar without a search all command.

I would surmise that the vpars have an inconsistency in their configuration and that should be looked at first.

Hi,

Actually it was a problem with the nPar setup. I had to use "setboot -a" to set the alternate boot on the nPar so that the EFI can see it.

Thanks
