Problem while booting with SecurePath 3.0D on HP-UX 11.0


I have a problem while booting HP-UX 11.0 with SecurePath 3.0D installed. The problem is i have to interrupt (by enter some keys)fsck & mount process of bcheckrc script that trying to fsck and mount filesystems under SecurePath control. If i did not interrupt, i have to wait for long time untill timeout reach (5 MINS) for each filesystem then the system continue booting. I do not have problem about activate VG or mount filesystem by the script of SecurePath after system bootup. My question is:
How can i skip fsck & mount filesystem that under SecurePath control? (no need to wait at console to send interrupt keys to continue boot process)

Not sure if this is the issue you are running into, but there is a known issue if you have removed one of the vdisks without going through the whole procedure:

To resolve the condition described above, it is necessary
to delete LUNs according to the procedure described in the
following Installation and Reference Guide:

hp Storage Works
Secure Path v3.0D for HP-UX 11i
v1.0, 11i v2.0 and HP-UX 11i
v1.0, 11i v2.0 Workgroup

The following text is taken from the section named
"Deleting LUNs", page 89:

Deleting LUNs

To unpresent a storage device or array from the
Secure Path for HSx configuration, use the
following procedure:

1. Delete the device or array from Secure Path
for HSx using spmgr delete.

2. Remove or unpresent the device from the array.
