Booting Issue !!

I am facing the booting issue in one of the system.

It stuck at the position at /sbin/ioinitrc and sits for more then 1 hour.

This is rx machine.

OS - 11iv2

Thanks in advance

Re: Booting Issue !!

I don't know what server it is and what is connected, so I would suggest to give either more information or try to get close to a minimum configuration (remove external cables, I/O cards, etc.).

Hope this helps!

Hello Titu,

Try booting the server in LVM Maintenance mode.

Break boot sequence when asked:

HPUX> boot vmunix -lm
Don't fix what ain't broke

Re: Booting Issue !!

ioinitrc would actually try to create hardware tree, so seems you have some hardware issue or some currupted files.

As above try booting in single user/LVM and if nothing works raise a hardware call.

I am in this small bowl, I wane see the real world......

Try to boot into Single user mode.
hpux -s
If you are able to login into single user then do a "init 3" for multiuser.

Re: Booting Issue !!


As stated, get to your single user mode.
a) check /etc/inittab, first line, 2nd fragment for 3 or 4. Paste in the inittab file for review.

Here's the I/O Recovery Handbook:

I/O Configuration (ioinit)
The ioinit command maintains the consistency between the kernel I/O data structures and file /etc/ioconfig, where the systems IO configuration is saved.
