OPENVMS boot problem [Bugcheck code = 0000019C: INCONSTATE, Inconsistent I/O data base]

Dear community., I'm in trouble with HP RX3600 server previously connected to MSA1000 storage. I performed the image backup, and replace the MSA1000 storage with 3par 7200. I restored the backup on 3par and now OpenVMS is not able to boot anymore.

If I boot from internal disk where I installed OpenVMS 8..4 I can see the fibre disks and I cas mount them, but if I try to boot from 3par I got the below error.

Could someone help here? Thank you,

Lucas.

Re: OPENVMS boot problem [Bugcheck code = 0000019C: INCONSTATE, Inconsistent I/O data base]

Lucas,

make sure you have the most recent V8.4 FIBRE_SCSI patch installed. The 3PAR OpenVMS Implementation Guide requires:

VMS84I_FIBRE_SCSI-V0600 or higher !

Thank you Volker for reply,

I don't know how to check if I have VMS84I_FIBRE_SCSI-V0600 or install it, since OpenVMS OS doesn't start from 3par.

I have an internal disk on server where I installed OpenVMS 8.4 and where I can boot from. From that installation I can see the disk from 3par and I can ,mount it. BTW, as I wrote, how can I check/install patch on a system that doesn't start?

Thank you

To check for the installed patch, use the PRODUCT SHOW HISTORY command.  If the patch has been installed, it should be on the list.

You can check for the release notes files ( DIR disk:<VMS$COMMON.SYSHLP>VMS84*.RELEASE_NOTES ) of the installed patches on the other system disk.

To install patches on another system disk than the one you've booted from, use PRODUCT INSTALL/REMOTE. See $ HELP PRODUCT INSTALL /REMOTE

Volker, please, could you drive me here? I'm stuck at:

       When you use /REMOTE, the following logical names must be
       defined:

       o  PCSI$SYSDEVICE must specify the physical disk name of the
          target system disk. This disk must be mounted and allocated to
          the process executing the PRODUCT command.

My disks are the following, where DKA200 is the internal disk where I boot and DGA100 is the disk on 3par :

XX11:SYSTEM> sho dev d

Device                  Device           Error    Volume         Free  Trans Mnt
 Name                   Status           Count     Label        Blocks Count Cnt
SMXX11$DKA200:          Mounted              0  SMXX11_54E   132969452   352   1
$1$DGA100:    (SMXX11)  Mounted alloc        0  IA64VMSSYS   330342816     1   1

So, what's the command I need to do for install the  VMS84I_FIBRE_SCSI-V0600.ZIPEXE patch??

Thanks a million.

Re: OPENVMS boot problem [Bugcheck code = 0000019C: INCONSTATE, Inconsistent I/O data base]

Create a directory with $ CREATE/DIR $1$DKA200:[KITS] and copy the VMS84I_FIBRE_SCSI-V0600.ZIPEXE  into that directory. Then set your default directory with $ SET DEFAULT $1$DKA200:[KITS]

You need to unzip the VMS84I_FIBRE_SCSI-V0600.ZIPEXE  first by just executing it with $ RUN VMS84I_FIBRE_SCSI-V0600.ZIPEXE.

Then mount the target 3PAR system disk with:

$ MOUNT/OVER=ID $1$DGA100:

$ DEFINE PCSI$SYSDEVICE $1$DGA100:

$ DEFINE PCSI$SPECIFIC PCSI$SYSDEVICE:[SYS0.]     ! assuming your system root is $1$DGA100:[SYS0]

$ PRODUCT INSTALL /REMOTE  VMS84I_FIBRE_SCSI/SOURCE=$1$DKA100:[KITS]

This should install the patch on the 3PAR system disk. Consider to run @sys$MANAGER:BOOT_OPTIONS to configure $1$DGA100: as a boot device for your rx3600. This should then allow you to boot from that device.
