Can't install HPUX

Hello all,

My server can't boot from a power shutdown.

So I try to re-install the OS from DVD or ignite server, but both can't work.

The system message stops from console in following message,


Downloading file AUTO (224 bytes)
1. target OS is B.11.23 IA
2. target OS is B.11.31 IA
3. Exit Boot Loader

Re: Can't install HPUX

It doesn't look this bad. I assume this is an Integrity server. How about your console? What are you using? Serial line or VGA?

From EFI check

Shell> conconfig

Hope this helps!

Re: Can't install HPUX

I connect my console from MP card, it should be a serial console.

There are 3 consoles, I disabled the other two.

Shell> conconfig

CONSOLE CONFIGURATION

Index Primary Type Device Path
----- ------- ----- ----------
1 P Serial Acpi(PNP0501,0)
2 NC Serial Acpi(HWP0002,700)/Pci(1|1)
3 NC VGA Acpi(HWP0002,700)/Pci(2|0)

Should I try with index 2 as primary

Re: Can't install HPUX

What server model is it?

You should try entry (2) as primary.

Hope this helps!

Re: Can't install HPUX

I assume this is a rx2620, so entry 1 is the COM1 port, not the MP port. Entry 2 is the MP serial port. Configure only 1 entry (2) as primary.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Thanks a lot.

It did be a rx2620, ia serial server.

Re: Can't install HPUX

1 P Serial Acpi(PNP0501,0) => COM1/serial1/console on chassis (not MP)
2 NC Serial Acpi(HWP0002,700)/Pci(1|1) => MP
3 NC VGA Acpi(HWP0002,700)/Pci(2|0) => MP

Hope this helps!
