Re: How to check primary and secondary boot disk

Shalom,

lvlnboot -v

That will display current configuration.

The only way to be sure you can boot off the drive though is to test booting off the drive.

Full soft boot mirror procedure below (overkill)

pvcreate -B /dev/rdsk/c1t0d0 #use real disk

mkboot -l /dev/rdsk/c1t0d0
mkboot -a "hpux -lq (;0)/stand/vmunix" /dev/rdsk/c1t0d0 # use real disk


# mkboot -b /usr/sbin/diag/lif/updatediaglif -p ISL -p AUTO -p HPUX -p PAD -p LABEL /dev/rdsk/c?t?d?

If you are running 64-bit OS:

# mkboot -b /usr/sbin/diag/lif/updatediaglif2 -p ISL -p AUTO -p HPUX -p PAD -p LABEL /dev/rdsk/c?t?d?


vgextend /dev/vg00 /dev/dsk/c1t0d0 # same thing
lvextend -m 1 /dev/vg00/lvol1 /dev/dsk/c1t0d0

# real disk. repeat for other lvols

lvlnboot -r /dev/vg00/lvol3 # root fs /
lvlnboot -s /dev/vg00/lvol2 #swap
lvlnboot -d /dev/vg00/lvol2 #swap/dump
lvlnboot -b /dev/vg00/lvol1
lvlnboot -R
lvlnboot -v
setboot
setboot -a 52.1.0 # second disk

lvlnboot -v

Example :-

Boot Definitions for Volume Group /dev/vg00:
Physical Volumes belonging in Root Volume Group:
/dev/dsk/c2t6d0 (0/0/2/1.6.0) -- Boot Disk
/dev/dsk/c1t6d0 (0/0/2/0.6.0) -- Boot Disk

Re: How to check primary and secondary boot disk

depending on the system ..
to see which boot disk you booted from:

echo 'boot_string/s' | adb /stand/vmunix /dev/mem
