Install HPUX11.23 on rx8640 boot from SAN

Hello,

We are trying to install HP-UX 11i V2 on rx8640 connected to EVA8000. We want to boot the partition from SAN.
Problem comes when server boots. EFI driver for the AD194A 4GB dual FC - 2port Gig Ether are not loaded automatically. However when command "reconnect -r" is executed at EFI shell. FC Devices are shown in "devices" output and Drivers are listed in "drivers" output.

I need your help so that drivers are loaded automatically during boot of the partition. Once we manually execute "reconnect -r" we able to install the OS and present disk to the partition.

Thanks in Advance

You may need to change the EFIFCScanlevel with the Fibre Channel Driver Configuration Utility to a value other than 0. You can run this utility with the drvcfg command something like below.

drvcfg â s driverhandle controllerhandle

Shell> drvcfg -s 1c 1f
Set Configuration Options
Drv[1C] Ctrl[1F] Lang[eng]
Fibre Channel Driver Configuration Utility
-> 4. Edit Boot Settings
-> 5. EFI Variable EFIFCScanLevel []

More detail about the utility is written in the eficfg.pdf which is available in the IPF ODE CD-ROM.

Thanks to both of you. We were able to resolve the issue. When we booted the server with the OS DVD and installed the HP-UX. We got the Boot option created automatically in the boot manager and now server boots from SAN.

Thanks,
