Re: Auto file Edite

The AUTO file for automatic boot?
You may have to use the EFI function to copy the file so you can edit it.

Hi,

You can do

example

echo "boot /stand/vmunix -lq" >> /tmp/AUTO.lq

efi_cp -d /dev/disk/disk_s1 /tmp/AUTO.lq /EFI/HPUX/EFI

Re: Auto file Edite

Hi,
For PARISC servers,
To edit the AUTO file,
#mkboot -a hpux /dev/rdsk/c#t#d#

In place of hpux you can mention "hpux -lq" for autoboot without quorum enforced.

To check the contents of the AUTO file,
#lifcp /dev/rdsk/c#t#d#:AUTO -
