Re: unable to boot the tru64 unix server from the SRM prompt

You may have hardware problem (disk) or somebody deleted some files from your boot disk (kernel vmunix).
Give more details such as when did it happened and what have been done on your system before that.
And send output of:
>>> show
Did you try to boot generic kernel?
>>> boot -file genvmunix

Re: unable to boot the tru64 unix server from the SRM prompt

Hi Imran,

In addition to Vladimir's suggestion, you might also want to try booting into single user mode...

>>> boot -flag s -file genvmunix

I'll guess you might have a corrupt or damaged system disk... Getting into single user, may enable you to fix it.

Failing that you might have to boot off and installation CD, drop to the Unix shell, and see if you can repair things from there.

Cheers,

Rob

So you have corrupted or damaged system disk.
You will need boot CD.
Do you have backup?

Re: unable to boot the tru64 unix server from the SRM prompt

Very strange output of disklabel!
Only partition "a" marked as advfs???
Did someone play with this server?
As I can see from hwmgr output you have SWXCR RAID controller configured with 7 LUNs, probably JBODs.
Is everything OK with hardware (any amber lights?)
Were you able to mount "old root" or not?
What is the output of:
# df

Re: unable to boot the tru64 unix server from the SRM prompt

Hi,

Can you post as much detail about the hardware as you can please... The output of "show dev" from the P00>>> prompt would be useful.

Going through the previous posts, I suspect that you are not booting from the correct disk. If you have got a SWXCR card, then I'll guess that your boot device should be a DR* device rather than DK*.

The output of "show boot*" would also help.

Cheers,

Rob

Re: unable to boot the tru64 unix server from the SRM prompt

Dear Vladimir Fabecic,

Thanks for the reply.

As i concerned no one plays with the server after it goes down.

And today we got the right media V5.1

and df command shows the cd partition and the new / partition nothiong esle.

As we have sysbackup...

please give the steps to perform the restoration and how to install it.
