>> my DVD Drive as sequantial access media.

Sequential devices are tapes, not DVDs.

Please post the "sea all" results.

Hope this helps!

Hmm, something in the back of my mind is ringing a bell, that the rp8400 was only supported as of HP-UX 11.11
My house is the bank's, my money the wife's, But my opinions belong to me, not HP!

A normal "sea" will search the core cell only, but a

Main Menu: Enter command or menu > sea all

will search the whole nPar.

Hope this helps!

Re: Need to re-install rp8400 with hp-ux 11.0

I'm afraid "this dog is not going to hunt."

rp8400 is a nPar-capable server. That means it uses a chipset that was never officially supported in HP-UX 11.00.

This is not too surprising, as the nPar support was one of the big enhancements of 11.11 after all.

www.openpa.net has a list of server and workstation models supported by 11.00. It even includes "officially unsupported but working" ones. The rp8400 is not there.

See

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&taskId=120&prodSeriesId=2512349&prodTypeId=15351&objectID=c00333981

Operating Environment HP-UX 11i (Basic, Enterprise, Mission-Critical or Technical Environments)

11i means here 11.11 and later.

Hope this helps!

Hi,

I don't see any use of installing 11.00 on RP8400 when it is officially unsupported on this h/w platform.
