ioconfig_dump is an internal HPE tool which generally should only used by customers under instruction from an HPE support person. However it's not uncommon for customers to end up with a copy and use it, regularly becasue it is fairly useful, but its not an "officially supported" part of the OS, so the first question is do you have the correct ioconfig_dump for the OS release and hardware architecture you are on? What's the output of: 

uname -a
what ioconfig_dump

hi:

    Here  is ouput:

client1#[/tmp/hpce]uname -a
HP-UX client1 B.11.31 U ia64 2238983359 unlimited-user license
client1#[/tmp/hpce]what ioconfig_dump
ioconfig_dump:
         ioconfig_dump $Revision: 5.15 $  $Date: 2007/12/18 14:16:51 $ bruno_vidal@hp.com
         ioconfig_dump.h $Revision: 5.13 $  $Date: 2007/11/21 14:17:18 $ bruno_vidal@hp.com

Maybe the ioconfig_dump software version is too low?

                Thanks!

Re: I can't execute ioconfig_dump for clean ioconfig?

That's pretty old! ioconfig_dump was actually deprecated and its functionality moved into another tool called iodebug as long ago as 2012. If you want to make changes based on that, you are best logging a call with the support center, describing what you want to do and asking if they can provide iodebug together with instructions for how to accomplish this. There may also be newer versions of ioconfig_dump that would work as well.

Re: I can't execute ioconfig_dump for clean ioconfig?

hi duncan:

             I got it ,thanks.

             I have iodebug software on my host,but I found that the functionality of this software is different from that of ioconfig_dump. So Can you give me some suggestion of iodebug or give me the lastest version ioconfig_dump?

Re: I can't execute ioconfig_dump for clean ioconfig?

I've never used the tool before - I would have hoped the support center would have given you instructions for use! Anyway, from the little I know, you should be using the -read_ioc and -gen_ioc options to manipulate ioconfig (and ext_ioconfig) file as a replacement for the ioconfig_dump tool.

iodebug -read_ioc help

and

iodebug -gen_ioc help

Should tell you more...
