Re: OS installation issue

Hi David:

Patience, grasshopper.

Most of the filesets are on the first DVD but there are some on the second and there is configuration to be done.

Regards!

Re: OS installation issue

Is there any activity on the DVD #2? How is your console connected to the server? If it is via a terminal server/session your connection may have timed out. Your console session should still be there, try reconnecting to the console and hit (ControlL) to refresh the console screen and you may be able to reconnect to the install session.

Re: OS installation issue

After some 11 hrs I have an error like

NOTE: run_cmd: Process: 13674 (/sbin/mount): killed by signal: 2.

My guess is the dvd is the culprit

>> Please make certain the correct media is in the drive.

Did you? Inspect the media and clean if needed. Insert it into your PC or another server. Can you read it?

Hope this helps!

Re: OS installation issue

Oooops, your other thread has been removed...



Again, it doesn't make any sense to use ** 2 ** different virtual drives - just use only **_1_** and swap the media:

Re: OS installation issue

well if you are using ISO images, you will need one for each DVD.
Then you will need to modify the DVD for the HPVM (it looks like this is what you are actually trying to install to) to reflect this change.
You could simply use hpvmmodify to point the virtual dvd to the second image, then push the return key in your installation window

Re: OS installation issue

example from the course:
Map virtual DVD to an iso file
hpvmmodify â P vm1 \
-a dvd:scsi::file:/vmiso/image1.iso
control media selection on VM Host
hpvmmodify â P vm1 \
-m dvd:scsi::file:/vmiso/image2.iso

substitute your iso image fileand path names

I do not know why it is picking up the drive in the Server and not the iso image

Re: OS installation issue

the suggested method of using the insert/eject of media from the vMP is NOT recommended for OS installs, as it can cause issues.
It is fine for updates/patches/aditional software etc.
All this is covered in the course.
Your safest method would eb to setup an Ignite/UX server and install across the network from that

Re: OS installation issue

I think you started the installation from the drive that is now empty!

The installer cannot switch to another drive during installation.

Insert the ISO2 to the other drive now.

Hope this helps!
