Re: boot lvm

Off the top of my head, I'd say that the /usr filesystem is not mounted. Perhaps a disk went.

mount /usr

Try again.

check /etc/rc.log

strings /etc/lvmtab

Re: boot lvm

You'll need to activate the vg, mount /usr, then run your mkboot. Verify boot info is correct with lvlnboot -v. After complete, umount /usr, deactivate the vg then reboot.

Re: boot lvm

Hi Jairo,

I assume you mean you booted in lvm maintenance mode ("hpux -lm" from ISL). In this case lvm is not activated for recovery purposes. You need to run :

# vgchange -a y vg00

Then you need to mount the relevant filesystems, i.e. /usr for mkboot.

cheers,

James.
