Re: Exec failed: Cannot find /stand/vmunix or /vmunix.

From ISL> try "hpux ls"

Example:

ISL> hpux ls
.kc.lock backup bootconf bootfs current
ext_ioconfig ioconfig krs last_install lost+found
nextboot rootconf system
vmunix

If you see "backup", try to boot from there.
For a mirrored disk, try to boot the mirrored disk and do the same there.


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
