Cold Installing HP-UX 11.23 on an Interity box with usb dvd

The new machine arrived with no OS installed and no built in dvd and at my current location the machine is stand alone not yet on a network.

I have attached the usb dvd to the front and rear usb ports to try both, and power cycled the unit.
My console is attached via the serial port and the boot process begins. It enters the EFI boot manager and automatically starts the autoboot install from the dvd. I have also stop the process and tried "fs0:", INSTALL same results.

The system begins

Loading Section 0
Loading Symbol Table
Loading ram disk file IINSTALLFS
Launching IINSTALL
Console is on a serial device
Booting Kernel
Memory Class Setup
Then a 1-2 min pause then bad news
Interruption Type Data TLB Fault
Shutdown State 8 type 0x2
Tries to do a memory dump but not configured for it
It then cycles back to EFI Boot Manager and tries it again. Simply press any key to stop it.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

The USB dvd drive must be compatible for hp-ux 11.23.

Depending on your system model you need a minimum release (date) of 11.23 - maybe your version is too old?

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

HP will tell you only about HP branded compatible drives.

See

http://h20341.www2.hp.com/integrity/w1/en/entry-class/rx2660-options.html

Product# AD142A or AD143A

Meanwhile configure MP/Ilo with an IP address and use the virtual media. It may be slow, but working.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
