Installing hpux 11.31 on bl860ci2

Hi,

 

I'm trying to install 11.31 on a bl860ci2. The installation process creates vg00 and the lvols's and installs the mini-system. But if gives an error when trying to make the disk bootable:

 

* Installing boot area on disk.

efi_mkdir: Invalid argument.

Error creating directory / on /tmp/ign_configure/RAMFS/dev/rdisk/disk1_pl

ERROR: /usr/sbin/efi_mkdir returned 25

ERROR: command "sbin/mkboot -e -l /tmp/ign_configure/RAMFS/dev/rdisk/disk1" failed.

 

I'm trying to get the latest firmware, but the site is extremely slow.

 

Does anyone has an idea?

 

Thanks, Michel

Sure you have a support 11.31 release for your blades?

 

(need to look up the minimum)

 

 

 

Hint:

 

Create a hardware RAID across the internal disks before installing the OS!

 

This will make disk replacements much, much easier in future!


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

That might be the problem! I'm using sep 2009 dvd. I will try it with a later release.

 

Thx.
