DVD Burning in HP-UX

Hi all,

I have a rx8620 server with HP-UX 11iv2.
I want to install a DVD Writer and take the OS image in a DVD.
Can you help in getting the correct procedure which is tested before. The server is very very critical and customer does not wants to do R&D on that. He wants the job to do with a tested procedure.
With thanks in advance...

Ajith.

Shalom,

Excellent links above, same ones I would have used.

Note that HP's current choice in DVD writers only supports RW+ media. Other formats creat coasters.

Re: DVD Burning in HP-UX

Hello Sameer,

Thank you very much for the links provided by you.
I would like to ask one more clarification.
The procedure is clear for making the bootable OS image.
In the final step it says to Burn the ISO-Image to CD/DVD media with any burning software.
Can I use the growisofs command for writing the DVD..? What should be the syntax for that...?

Regards,

Ajith.

Jayasuntar,

Yes, you can use growisofs to write the ISO image created using "mkisofs" before.
Be aware & as Steven mentioned already, you should use the DVD RW+ media and HP DVD RW drive.

# growisofs -dry-run -dvd-compat -Z /dev/rdsk/c1t2d0=

You can refer the online man page of "growisofs" as well.

Hello Nirmal,

Thanks for your quick response.
Let me try these steps in a test machine ( except burning the image as i dont have a dvd writer on the same).
I will come back to you with the result.
Thank you once again...

Re: DVD Burning in HP-UX

The discussion above is from 13 years ago.
hp.com is now a consumer printer and laptop company.
HP-UX and related hardware is now hpe.com

The links have not been consistently transferred so use Google to try and locate them.
HP-UX does not any official way to burn CD/DVD media.
You will save a lot of time and frustration by transferring the ISO image to a PC and burning it there.
