Bootrap Failure

Hi

I am using Tru64....when I try to boot the O/S......the system complains about the bootrap failure.....How do I check if the system is booting from the right disk and how do I change to the right disk if I found out that the system is booting from the wrong disk.

The actual message might be helpful.

The system hardware type might be helpful.


The system should tell you from which disk it
boots when it starts to boot. Also, the
default boot device may be shown, so:

>>>show bootdev_def

and changed, so:

>>>set bootdev_def

To see all the available disks:

>>>show device

You can also specify a device in the "boot"
command.

>>>help boot

Re: Bootrap Failure

You should check that the following SRM variables are correct:

show os_type

It should be set to unix

And to check your boot disk:

show bootdef_dev

You can use:

show dev

To identify the disks on your system. To change the boot device use:

set bootdef_dev
