Re: Ignite recovery

Several possibilities:

- use dbprofile from efi
- use an ignite boot helper
- boot from an install DVD in order to restore from server

Hope this helps!

Re: Ignite recovery

Hi,

You need to configure "boothelper" on your ignite-server.

if you want to reinstall a system (it has already a system load), you can just call the bootsys command on the ignite server, e.g.:
bootsys -avf host

If you have to boot from the network you can simply setup a boothelper:

Install the ignite-ux package at your boothelper, then execute for minimal setup:
instl_adm -b # clean default config
instl_adm -t ServerIP # enter address of Igniteserver

In the setting up a boot helper doc, after it tells you to install, it gives you a file to edit and point to your ignite server and give a temporary address for the boot helper to boot your new machine to. That is all you need to do. Then when you install on the other subnet, you use 'boot lan.ipoftheboothelper install' instead of 'boot lan.ipoftheigniteserver install".

instl_adm -m NetMask # enter your netmask, if not default
edit /etc/opt/ignite/instl_boottab and add one or more ip-addresses for temporal use
Maybe you want to setup additional values like default gateway, if your system does not support proxy-arp.

Take a look at this thread,

http://www.software.hp.com/products/IUX/iux_faq

Look at section 6.10 .

Here is another thread,

http://www.software.hp.com/products/IUX/docs/sysadm.html#Chapter-6

Hope, this will help you to achive your goal.

Re: Ignite recovery

For ignite, to boot the system you need to be in the same subnet, while restore file you don't need to be in the same subnet. What I had done is booting the client from a different system which is in the same subnet. After the system is booted up, then I restore the files from the ignite server.

This is a little complicated but it still can be done easily.

Hi,

The other option would be to get the vlan changed for client temporary with the help of network team.

Re: Ignite recovery

Bonjour Trng,

I do underline Torsten's suggestion : use dbprofile. In a few words you define at EFI, on client side, parameters like IP of the client, IP of the ignite server, gateway, boot file, etc ... Very easy to have it working. Check this page http://docs.hp.com/en/5992-3336/ch07s06.html
