Force reboot from other disk with DCL commands

Hi, I am working on an image backup procedure. For this procedure I would like to reboot the system, but after the shutdown the system should not boot from the disk where it booted from before, but another disk (disk or CD). I want to do this without any action on the bootprompt, so all with DCL commands before the reboot starts.
Can this be done ??
Thanx in advance.

Hans,

I think it is not posible using DCL commands only.

Re: Force reboot from other disk with DCL commands

I wonder why changing boot prompt variables is not supported by HP.

Even on Sun it is possible.

Hans,

if you think that DEFAULT_BOOT.C (see other thread) would do what you need, you can certainly give it a try. It's unsupported, but may just do what you need...
