RX6600 install HP-UX 11.23

Good day to all!

I have a problem and i don't know what to do... I got a new RX6600, made Express setup (create ESP partition only), after that I tyed to boot from HP-UX DVD-Disk.

During boot I got this:

Press Any Key to interrupt Autoboot
\EFI\HPUX\AUTO ==> boot vmunix
Seconds left till autoboot - 0
AUTOBOOTING...
AUTO BOOT> boot vmunix
> System Memory = 2040 MB
loading section 0
................................................ (complete)
loading section 1
............ (complete)
loading symbol table
loading System Directory (boot.sys) to MFS
....
loading MFSFILES directory (bootfs) to MFS
...........
Launching /stand/vmunix
SIZE: Text:24254K + Data:5873K + BSS:5200K = Total:35328K

Console is on a Serial Device
Booting kernel...

HP-UX will call firmware in physical-addressing mode

Memory Class Setup
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Class Physmem Lockmem Swapmem
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
System : 2040 MB 2040 MB 2040 MB
Kernel : 2040 MB 2040 MB 2040 MB
User : 1694 MB 1474 MB 1480 MB
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

And stoped there... I waited long time, but nothing... What to do and how can I solve problem?

Shalom,

I suggest you check that the firmware on the box is current. They often ship not so current.

You will have to re-install the OS. That should be done to boot off of local disk and take care to leave room in /usr / opt /stand for some growth.

Hi,

forget about the firmware.
You should check the console settings:

Hope this helps!

Re: RX6600 install HP-UX 11.23

Thank for reply!

Problem still exist...
New thinks about problem:

RX6600 -- SAS Controller P600, after HP-UX install disk boots (load kernel), disk drivers in SAS starting flashing by activiti LED like RAID-rebuild starting... I didn't see that starnge flashing When I installed W2k3.

May be my HP-UX too old to support SAS and if so how can I install drivers to install HP-UX?

You need the september 2006 media release of 11i v2 to install HP-UX.

Hope this helps!
