Shalom,

To boot clients from outside subnet you will need to build boot helpers.

I am providing links but the procedure is the same as for 11.31 as for prior releases of the OS.

Re: How to configure Ignite-UX server on hp-ux itanium 11iv3

Hi,

Set up Ignite-UX sever
========================

1) Install the product
#swinstall -s
2) Verfiy the installation and note down the versions
#swlist -l product|grep -i ignite

3) Modify PATH and MANPATH variables
PATH=$PATH:/opt/ignite/bin
export PATH
MANPATH=$MANPATH:/opt/ignite/share/man
export MANPATH

4) Create software depots
#mk_depots -r B.11.31 -s
#mk_depots -r B.11.31 -s /dev/dsk/c0t0d0

The software depot is normally created in the following directory,
but can be placed in a common deployment location on another server:

/var/opt/ignite/depots/Rel_B.11.31

5) Create Ignite-UX configuration file

#mk_config -c -s
eg.
#/opt/ignite/bin/make_config â c /var/opt/ignite/data/Rel_B.11.31/core_cfg
-s 192.168.112.231:/depot/HPUX-11.31

6) Create Index

#manage_index -a -f /var/opt/ignite/data/Rel_B.11.31/core_cfg -r B.11.31

7) Verify and examine the configuration file for following parameters.
(/var/opt/ignite/data/Rel_B.11.31/core_cfg)

source_format= SD

sd_server=

sd_depot_dir=
====================================
sw_source "core" {
description = "HP-UX Core Software"
source_format = SD
sd_server = "192.168.112.231"
sd_depot_dir = "/depot/HPUX-11.31"
source_type = "NET"
load_order = 0
===================================

8) Verify and examine the Index file(/var/opt/ignite/INDEX) for following parameters.

Check for the entry, cfg "HP-UX 11.31 Default"
==================================================
cfg "HP-UX B.11.31 Default" {
description "This selection supplies the default system configuration
that HP supplies for the B.11.31 release."
"/opt/ignite/data/Rel_B.11.31/config"
"/opt/ignite/data/Rel_B.11.31/hw_patches_cfg"
"/var/opt/ignite/data/Rel_B.11.31/core_cfg"
"/var/opt/ignite/config.local"
========================================================


9) Check the entry in /etc/dfs/dfstab and ensure that
NFS is running
.
share -F nfs -o anon=2 -d "Ignite Clients" /var/opt/ignite/clients
share -F nfs -o anon=2,ro -d "HPUX 11.23 Depot" /depot/HPUX-11.23
share -F nfs -o anon=2,ro -d "HPUX 11.31 Depot" /depot/HPUX-11.31

#ps -ef|grep nfsd


10) Check the entries in /etc/inetd.conf for tftpd,bootpd

tftp dgram udp wait root /usr/lbin/tftpd tftpd\
/opt/ignite\
/var/opt/ignite

bootps dgram udp wait root /usr/lbin/bootpd bootpd



11) Collect Client MAC address.

Shell>lanaddress

Shell> lanaddress

LAN Address Information

LAN Address Path
----------------- ----------------------------------------
*Mac(001B787AF2EA) Acpi(HWP0002,PNP0A03,100)/Pci(1|0)/Mac(001B787AF2EA)
Mac(001B787AF2EB) Acpi(HWP0002,PNP0A03,100)/Pci(1|1)/Mac(001B787AF2EB)
Mac(001B787AF2E6) Acpi(HWP0002,PNP0A03,200)/Pci(2|0)/Mac(001B787AF2E6)
Mac(001B787AF2E7) Acpi(HWP0002,PNP0A03,200)/Pci(2|1)/Mac(001B787AF2E7)

12) Edit /etc/bootptab and enter client inforamtions

#vi /etc/bootptab
ignite-defaults:\
ht=ethernet:\
hn:\
bf=/opt/ignite/boot/nbp.efi:\
bs=48
:\
tc=ignite-defaults:\
ha=001B787AF2EA:\
ip=192.168.112.177:\
sm=255.255.0.0:\
gw=192.168.114.252:\
ds=190.1.48.11
