How to install the OS (HP-UX 11i v3) on HP integrity server (host) by using ISO images of DVDs

Hi All,

I am able to connect ILO2 MP using console and web interface.

How to mount ISO images of DVDs and install the OS (HP-UX 11i v3) on HP integrity server (host) by using ISO images of DVDs?

Is it possible?

I might be mistaken but I think it is possible to use Virtual Media to do this if you have an iLO2 Advanced Pack licence (or whatever it is called -- I don't remember the exact marketing name). If you're on a blade, then it will be included. In other cases, it is a licence that needs to be purchased seperately.

There's actually a free trial licence that could help you if you only need a one-shot.

Go here:

The scroll down to "Multi-OS" to have licence keys that should enable Virtual Media for 10 days.

Hi,

For installing OS in ur server as follows,

1. Insert your DVD in ur cd rom
From MP>CO

Booting Your Itanium-based System
Step 1. Make sure any external devices that need to be configured at cold-install
are connected to the target system and are turned on and operational.

Step 2. Insert the HP-UX 11i v2 DVD into the drive.

Step 3. Turn the system on, reboot, or cycle power.

â ¢ If the system boots automatically, the kernel scans the system for I/O
devices.

â ¢ If the system does not boot automatically, it goes to the boot menu. It
is a timed menu; press any key to stop the timer. Then, you can run
the install manually from the EFI shell using the following steps:
a. From the boot menu, select EFI Shell (Built In).

b. At the EFI shell prompt, specify the device name (for example, fs1:)
for the DVD-ROM and then enter the EFI install command, as in the
following example
If the device is not automatically selected, select the device name for
the DVD-ROM and then execute install. For example, from the EFI
shell prompt, you may see something similar to the following:
Shell> fs1:
fs1:\> install
If you do not see the DVD-ROM device, use the map command to list
all device names from the EFI shell prompt.
The list of devices is displayed automatically, and the install process
selects the device for you.

Your DVD device may not always be fs1. Make sure you verify the ID
appropriate to your DVD device.
After the kernel has booted, it scans the system for I/O devices.
