Probably the most easy procedure is to copy the DVD to your ignite server, boot and install the vPar from there. See the manual for details.

Hope this helps!

Re: Installation of HP UX 11iV3 VSOE

If you want to run 11iv2 and 11iv3 vpars together then you need to boot A.05.x version of vpmon. Please carefully read :
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c02029116/c02029116.pdf (BSC link updated by admin)

1-) You need to shutdown all your vpars, and boot into npar mode then install your 11iv3 and vpar software
2-) Boot from A.05.x vpmon
3-)As far as i know you need to recreate your (You cant use old vpdb) old vpars from scratch, and boot them.

Shalom,

I would also swcopy the DVD to an Ignite install point on rw shared NFS is a good place to do it.

Once the Ignite server is set up on the same subnet you can boot any compatible system off of it.

Re: Installation of HP UX 11iV3 VSOE

Dear All,

Thankx for reply, I need to try by booting in Npar mode and boot using dvd.

I have ignite server in place, but due to space constraint i can not use this server.

Will let u know all after trying Npar mode booting and installation status.
