rx-1600 shows no disk installed

I'm tring to install HP-UX 11i v3 on a rx1600. Using network install from another server with ignite-ux goes fine, untill when reaching install menu and it shows no disk.

The server has an Ultra 320 parallel scsi. The diagnostics shows the controller and it seems to be o.k.

I tried other disks with the same result, so it seems to be a problem between controller and disk but don't know how I can diagnose or solve the problem.

Any help or direction will be very apreciated.

Could you please send the output of

Let's see if the server can see the disks.

Hope this helps!

Re: rx-1600 shows no disk installed

2 problems:

I can't see a disk - the server too.

Are the disks internal?

you have only 1GB memory - 11.31 requires 1.5 GB minimum.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: rx-1600 shows no disk installed

The disk is pluggable, is attached to an scsi slot in the front of the server.

About the memmory issue, I tried to install with 512 MB (the default configuration) and installation failed telling me it needs 900 MB to run. As far as I could get in the installation process, memory is not an issue.

I ran ODE tests and controller seems to be OK, the disk is firmly attached and everything seems to be OK. Can't figure what's happening.

Does the ODE mapper show the disk?

Hope this helps!

Re: rx-1600 shows no disk installed

During the selftest/booting to the start menu the system should also list devices like this:

Loading 'SysROM:Floating-Point Software Assistance Handler'...
-- 'SysROM:Floating-Point Software Assistance Handler' returned Success
1 0 0x00020B 0x0000000000000006 EFI Launching Boot Manager
0 0 0x0015B2 0x0000000026798738 boot time event
Scsi(Pun1,Lun0) HP 36.4GMAP3367NC HPC6 ( 80 MBytes/sec)
Scsi(Pun1,Lun0) HP C7438A V312 ( 40 MBytes/sec)


Does it list the HDD?

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: rx-1600 shows no disk installed

No, nothing about a disk.

I tried with various disks with no success, so there's no problem with the disk. I also tried using the other slot (there are two on the front of the server) with the same result.

The wires and connections look good.

When I changed disks, the status led of the disk blinked during boot only the first time the disk is attached, after the firs time lights never blinked again.
