Error installing HP-UX 11i v3 on Integrity rx1600

When I try to install HP-UX 11i v3 on a Integrity rx1600 I'm getting this error, after kernel boot

Stored message buffer up to system crash
MFS is not defined
krs_read_mfs: Error 5 opening MFS
Found adjacent data tr. Growing size 0x2131000 -> 0x6131000
Loaded ACPI revision 2.0 tables.
MMIO on this platform supports Write Coalescing.
krs_read_mfs: Error 5 opening MFS

and the message before reboot

bad_kern_reference: 0xfff31.0x10, fault = 0x8
Panic: Fault when executing in kernel mode

I can't find any information about MFS. Any clue or reference about what's happening?

Hi,

MFS (Memory File Storage)
On Integrity machines, this allows the boot loader to load all of the files required to boot HPUX in memory before it properly accesses the disk.
It loads the specific system files required to boot the server, eg drivers, and then once they are loaded it hands over to the disk HPUX to manage the system.

So, Have you tried to re-install HPUX?
What version of EFI do you have?

You may have just been unfortunate with your installation, and reloading it may cure it.
This may also be an EFI problem, so it may be worth upgrading to the latest version if you aren't already.

Also, from you MP, can you check to see if you have any Memory Dimm errors?

Regards,
Phil

This server has 512 MB Ram. I tried several times to install HP-UX with the same results I stated above.

I downloaded System, BMC $ MP firmware and upgraded it. EFI version is 1.10 revision 14.62
System firmware version is 4.27
BMC version is 4.01

I run Itanium diagnostics IPF 0806 and memory is fine. I don't get any fail.

I'm checking disk, and don't get any activity. Don't know if it has any relationship with my MFS error.

IMHO your problem is here:

System Requirements
1.5 GB memory, minimum


http://docs.hp.com/en/5992-3364/ch02s01.html

you need 1GB more at least.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

I think Torsten maybe right.
MFS uses a "chunk" of the memory, but 512MB isn't very much.

Adding more memory solved the problem.
