Re: IGNITE C.7.8.201

Hakki Aydin I still could not get you.
I have 5 servers.. How will I know which one of them is an Ignite server.

An Ignite server has already beeen setup by someone else and he did not tell me which one is the ignite server.. Now How will I find out which is acting as the Ignite server out of my 5 servers

Also could you tell me how to get the Ignite GUI

Re: IGNITE C.7.8.201

on hp-ux window just issue:

export DISPLAY=host.display
ignite

as far as I know there is no concept for ignite server or client , you can choose whichever you want. .

Re: IGNITE C.7.8.201

# export DISPLAY=host.display
# ignite

The DISPLAY environment variable is set to "host.display", but
the current configuration won't allow ignite to run on that display.

The DISPLAY environment variable may be incorrect, or, if you are
running ignite remotely, you may need to allow the remote system
to access your local X server by typing

/usr/bin/X11/xhost +vmhint04

on your local machine.

Do you want to proceed using the terminal version of ignite?

That didn't work either

# DISPLAY=host0
# export DISPLAY
# ignite

The DISPLAY environment variable is set to "host0", but
the current configuration won't allow ignite to run on that display.

Re: IGNITE C.7.8.201

Hi David,

just to clear a couple of things.
When exporting the display you have to replace "host" with the hostname of your system and not literally with host.

About your question "how to check which is the Ignite-UX server and which is the client" as far as I know there is no a specific way, so I'd verify by some tips: for example check if into /var/opt/ignite does exist a file called machines which lists clients and does exist a directory clients which is populated by clients name. If clients directory is empty I think you can say it's a client, if populated it's the server.
I suppose you'll find just one system with /var/opt/ignite/clients/ not empty.

HTH.

Best regards,
Fabio

Re: IGNITE C.7.8.201

The only way I was able to make out was that... I logged on to each system and checked for /etc/bootptab ... and I found entries on one server... by which I was able to know that X is an Ignite server and XYZ are clients....

I am still hunting to get the ignite GUI.

How to invoke the display andd get into GUI

Hi David,

check the path on ignite server
/var/opt/ignite/archive

there will be the ignite archive for each client.

Re: IGNITE C.7.8.201

Thanks for the responces...

I have the following HP-UX servers in the DC when I have entered new.. and the previous sys Admin ahs not told me anything...

Server A, B, C. D...... Z

Now I am getting a new server AB... in this same network...

I do not want to do a lanboot..

Now I have make my entries in /erc/bootptab..

Is there a single command to which when given on the server will tell me if it it a client or a server...

Re: IGNITE C.7.8.201

With ignite installed, each server can be ignite server or client.

Start the ignite GUI and check if there is a configuration - so you know you found the server.

I would expect the server has some images of clients stored already, check this too.

# ignite

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
