Hi,

What was the last change? any patching?

This can be happen becasue of multiple reasons.

Probably driver issue/compatibility, card compatibilities,

which is your current consol?

No. This is not a VM. Though it seems weird that this msg "gio: Error configuring root device using EFI hw paths" seems to occur on numerous occasions on VMs. While mine's a physical box.

Yes. Patches were applied. I checked the usual readmes and special installation instructions, though i could have missed out something. So, I broke mirror and patched the primary disk. But as described above, both primary and secondary disk failed to boot up. Besides, after patching, the primary disk managed to boot up and start cluster. Other cluster server after patch, also managed to boot up currently.

I unplucked the Fibre at though network is still on during the tries..
Hmm...

i'm connected via serial from a dumb terminal to the server.
Also, i was unable to boot to single user mode.
You think booting to another kernel config at the HPUX> will help?
This server is part of a db cluster...
