Re: Patch Installation by using DRD

You need a kind of direct attached disk or LUN (not NFS or something). The disk device will be the target for cloning.


Hope this helps!

Hi Torsten,

 

If I use a disk from SAN , will this visible in EFI menu , If I wanted to boot the system from this SAN disk .

Because when we activate the drd clone disk its going to boot the server from the clone disk , So it has to go through EFI shell right .

 

Please correct me if I am wrong

Re: Patch Installation by using DRD

if you activate the clone from hp-ux, the systems sets the primary boot bath to the clone, the alternate to the original disks.

 

Without setting the path from hp-ux you need to search the LUN from EFI, this means you need to get into the FC HBA BIOS and toggle EFISCANLEVEL.

 

Better use the activate command.


Hope this helps!

Torsten.
