Read hpux(1m):

Basically these modes allow you to troubleshoot problems bringing up the system.

Hi Niceguy,

"What are the difference of various mode in Hp-Unix"

are you refering to "run-level's" ..?

the above mentioned mode's reminds me about trouble shooting

Hpux Single User Mode

hpux -is

lvm Maintance mode
boot into LVM maintenance mode:

hpux -lm

Thanks,
Johnson

Single user mode, used for maintenance, without all file systems mounted, console access only. Useful for retrieving lost root password, or extending vg00 lvol's etc.

Quoram Mode - I assume you mean hpux -lq?
This is used when using mirrordisk. It tells the box to boot even if a mirror is missing. (Ignore Quorum requirements)

Maintance mode - used to do offline maintenance of disks.
