Re: Boot Order in Tru64 UNIX

At the console prompt (SRM) you can use multiple devices for BOOTDEF_DEV variable that is used to select the boot device. On some systems (mainly the ones using FibreChannel) you may also need to enable the FFAUTO and/or FFNEXT variables.

For Fibre Channel systems it could look like:

octo1>>> wwidmgr -show reach

Disk assignment and reachability after next initialization:


6005-08b4-0001-4eb9-0001-d000-0122-0000
