Re: vms boot

You need to explicitly configure the boot device in the SRM console.

First, prevent automatic boot after INITIALIZE:

>>> set auto_action halt
>>> initialize

>>> wwidmgr -clear all
>>> wwidmgr -show wwid -full
(check that all paths are available)

>>> wwidmgr -quickset -udid 1

>>> initialize

>>> show device
(you will have multiple paths...
>>> set bootdef_dev dga1.?,dga1.?,dgb1.?

(sometime this can be optimized:
>>> set bootdef_dev dga1.*,dgb1.*

(set the original value for "auto_action"

>>> set auto_action ...

>>> boot

Depending on your configuration and on which controller the unit is currently active, you might see one or more "not connected" paths - don't worry, that's ok.
