Not a very complete description of the
system.

> Can anyone help [...]

Anyone who has read the manual or the on-line
help probably can. If your system works the
way my system works, then you might try:

Shell> help

Shell> help shell

Shell> help cd

[...]
* To change volumes with cd will not work!! For example:
fs0:\efi\tools\> cd fs1:\ !!!! will not work !!!!
must first type fs1: then cd to desired directory

Re: Erro while changing directory on EFI shell prompt

For installing and managing OpenVMS I64 on Integrity servers, you are expected to have access to and to have read through this document:

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/openvms/doc/BA322-90077.PDF

Within that document, search for "Shell>" and for "General Notes About Using EFI", among other sections you will want to read.

To wit:

Example 1 â From Top Level
fs0:\> \efi\vms\vms_show device . . .
fs0:\> \efi\vms\vms_set dump_dev dga3730 Example 2

â First Moving to \efi\vms
fs0:\> cd \efi\vms fs0:\efi\vms> vms_show device . . . fs0:\efi\vms> vms_set dump_dev dga3730

fs1:\EFI\VMS> VMS_SHOW.EFI device dka5:
VMS: DKA5 HP IR Volume HP01 V8_3_1H1
EFI: fs1: Acpi(HWP0002,400,PNP0A03)/Pci(1|0)/Scsi(Pun5,Lun0)
