Failed boot

Hi All!

 

My PA-RISC with hp-ux 11.23 will not boot. I did some basic check and concluded that the primary disk has crashed and the system is not able to boot from the mirrored secondary disk.

 

Kindly help.

Re: Failed boot

Just to start, capture the system output and post.

From boot menu, do

> bo alt

Hope this helps!

Re: Failed boot

Same for "pri" - the primary disk?

Please post

Configuration Menu: Enter command > pa

for the pathes and tell what server model it is.

I assume a rp3440?

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: Failed boot

Looks like the alt path does not exists? The alt path points to an IDE device, but not to the DVD drive ...

 

Is the disk mirrored at all?

 

 



Try maintenance mode.

> bo pri

interact yes

> hpux -lm


Do you got a prompt now?


Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: Failed boot

I would actually boot with the '-lq' option (for low quorum mode) rather than '-lm' (for LVM maint. mode).

Then do a

Re: Failed boot

Yes, do this please!

Whatever the mirrored disk is.
There is only a single internal disk listed.

Hope this helps!
