Re: Error while installaling OS on rx2660 integrity server

Hi,
Thanks for your reply.

Do we need to have 11i v2 media with the minimum release date of june 2007?
Is it the minimum requirement for this server?
Can'nt we have OS ver 11. V1 on the server?

Is that possible?

No. There may be no patches for the issue and any fixes delivered with the June 2007 update.

Re: Error while installaling OS on rx2660 integrity server

So its clearly means that we can't install OS on integrity server rx2660 with the OS CD(HP-UX v2i December 2006 release)??

We need HP -UX v2i with release of june 2007 or later??

Re: Error while installaling OS on rx2660 integrity server

Which type of SAS controller is installed in your rx2660? Core SAS controller or P400?

Re: Error while installaling OS on rx2660 integrity server

If it is AD248A#106, you have HP internal RAID1 controller.

If it is AD248A#130, you have HP Smart Array P400.

Re: Error while installaling OS on rx2660 integrity server

Hi,

I have tried the installation with HP-UX 11i ver3 but still i am getting the same error.

HP Smart Array P4000 failure.
Does it seems to be some hardware issue?

burn the CD, boot the server from this CD, and upgrade SAS firmware to version 1.23.42.00.

What is the release date of your HP-UX 11i v3 media?

Re: Error while installaling OS on rx2660 integrity server

Load CD, boot the server to EFI Shell, you will see the fs0: prompt, and issue the command

cd \efi\hp\tools\io_cards\sas

If you can't change to this directory, change to different device by issuing the command

fs1:

If you can't find directory again, change to the next device.

After successfully changing directory, issue the command

sasflash -listall

and send me the output.

Re: Error while installaling OS on rx2660 integrity server

Hi,

I have downloaded the daigonistic tool as suggested by u from the site.Its name as IPF1012.Its in rar format.
Can u pls tell me the full steps for firmware upgradation like after sasflash -listall , what next command i need to fire.

Actually server is at different location and its far away from here. So its not possible to go there again & again.Thats why i am asking you complete steps and there is no internet connection as the server is in Data center.
Appreciating your reply.

Re: Error while installaling OS on rx2660 integrity server

In rar format?

Normally it is always a zipped ISO file.


Burn it to a CD or copy it to a USB thumb drive or use vMedia with the ISO, boot from this media and follow the steps written in the README.


Should be in

\EFI\HP\TOOLS\IO_CARDS\SmartArray


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
