vPar reboot or shutdown will not give you the shell prompt. you need to reset the node and during post it will ask you to press "S" to get into the shell prompt.

for "delay set", u can try the help option in shell> prompt

In vPar environment you will see EFI on screen, but you cannot interact - this is normal.

What do you want to do at EFI level?

Hope this helps!

See also the admin guide:

EFI and Integrity Notes

- EFI Shell Accessibility After the vPars Monitor (/stand/vpmon) is booted, the EFI shell
will not be accessible. This includes using hpux.efi and other EFI commands.
If you need to perform any EFI functions, you will need to shut down all the virtual partitions
and reboot the nPartition to access the EFI shell.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
