HPUX 11.11 - Model RP5470 Not booting.

Hello, can you please help me on this.

The machine got mirrored boot disk. we never booted from alt path.
I had to reboot the machine and not booting from primary path. Folling error appeared.
/stnd/vmunix - not readalbe or not accessable.

I tried with ALT path and gives the following messages.
Alert level 6 - boot possible pending failure
source 8 = I/O

The question is, I have the ignite backup which was taken, when the machine was up and running using PRI path.

Can I use this tape to setup the ALT disk?

or What is your suggestions please?
Thanks

The system may have a hardware problem. The GSP logs may have more information.

You may try to stop at ISL> prompt and do

ISL> hpux -ls

to check if vmunix is there.

However, you can restore the image to another disk for testing.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Boot from tape, select the destination disk and start recovery.
