boot from shell prompt

Hi,
Can somebody tell me how to boot the server from shell prompt. Its one of the blade servers which is showing in shell prompt

Device Path VenHw(D65A6B8C-71E5-4DF0-A909-F0D2992B5AA9)
EFI Shell version 1.10 [14.62]
Device mapping table
blk0 : Acpi(HWP0002,PNP0A03,200)/Pci(1|0)/Scsi(Pun1,Lun0)
Shell>

Shell> boot /stand/vmunix
'boot' not found
Exit status code: Invalid Parameter

Shell>

Does this mean that the server has to be rebuilt?
Thanks

Re: boot from shell prompt

No, it tells us that your system can't see a bootable partition on any storage - otherwise you would have some devices listed in the device mapping table in the format fs0: , fs1: etc.

How have you got to this situation?

Re: boot from shell prompt

This is an EFI shell. Type 'exit' and you will go to the main menu and choose boot device.

Re: boot from shell prompt

I am not able to see any boot device. The options I see after exiting from the shell prompt are

ILO Virtual Media, Core Lan Port1, 2, 3, 4
EFI Shell (Built-in), Boot Configuration, System Configuration, Security Configuration

Does this mean that there is no bootable partition?

Under Boot configuration add a boot device and look for disk drive(s).

After sucessfully boot update menu with setboot command.

Re: boot from shell prompt

There is no valid boot device visible in the map.

Did the system run before?

I assume it should boot from SAN, so you probably need to adjust the search settings on the FC card.

Please post

Shell> drivers
and
Shell> devices

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
