Hi,

This is an BL870c blade server. It will go to the shell> prompt. then I need to specify the "boot from file" option manually to boot the system.

Re: HP-UX 11iv3 server fail to auto boot

From running hp-ux use

# setboot

to verify and set the config.

Hope this helps!

Re: HP-UX 11iv3 server fail to auto boot

Hi

boot the system as now you are doing. Once booted use the setboot command with -p , -h and -a options so as to set the Primary path. HAA path and Alternate boot paths and make autoboot ON. Also use setboot -b on to set the autoboot on once the boot paths are set.
use setboot without options to check the setiings.

Please find the output of setboot command. It shows autoboot on. Please suggest.

# setboot
Primary bootpath :
HA Alternate bootpath : 0/1/1/0 (LAN Interface)
Alternate bootpath : 0/1/1/1 (LAN Interface)

Autoboot is ON (enabled)
Hyperthreading : ON
: ON (next boot)

Re: HP-UX 11iv3 server fail to auto boot

Hello Aungshu,
looks your hpux box boot from a specific path.

do you have any idea is this remote path? from anywhere in SAN/NAS?

i believe you need to set this path somwhere to make it autoboot. thanks,

No this is local boot. No SAN/ NAS path boot.

HA Alternate bootpath : 0/1/1/0 (LAN Interface)

Re: HP-UX 11iv3 server fail to auto boot

I need your help how to identify the primary boot path and set it in the system ? Because my primary bootpath shows no path .

# setboot
Primary bootpath :
HA Alternate bootpath : 0/1/1/0 (LAN Interface)
Alternate bootpath : 0/1/1/1 (LAN Interface)

Autoboot is ON (enabled)
Hyperthreading : ON
: ON (next boot)

Re: HP-UX 11iv3 server fail to auto boot

Hi Aungshu,

run : lvlnboot -v ( Only for LVM)to check the boot disk.

and set it with setboot command:

#setboot -p -a

run setboot again to confirm if its set properly.


You would have similar entries like below for lvlnboot:

lvlnboot -v
Boot Definitions for Volume Group /dev/vg00:
Physical Volumes belonging in Root Volume Group:
/dev/dsk/c2t0d0 (0/1/1/0.0.0) -- Boot Disk


Cheers!!

Re: HP-UX 11iv3 server fail to auto boot

Use

# lvlnboot -v

to get the path to the disk and set it after this, e.g.

# setboot -p /dev/disk/disk1_p2

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
