Problem during installation Unix Compact Tru64 UNIX V5.1

Hello,
I have server DS20E and I want to install tru64 Unix Compaq Tru64 UNIX V5.1.
Recently the server was working fine, but there was a RAM failure and we replaced it with a new one.
I started to boot from CDROM and go ahead with instillation,but the instillation stopped in the middle
and went to prompt console and gives me some errors like the following :-
- device translate: device cannot be translated scsi 1 7 0 0 0 0 0
- cp-save_term exited with hlt_req=1r0= 000000.0000000
- prom_getenv: unable to convert scsi 1 7 0 0 0 0 0
- cdisk_ioctl: xpt_Get_log failed
I don't know that because of the new RAM or some configurations need to be done in order to go ahead in the instillation.
please could you help me.

Hello,


Check to see if any *dev* variable is incorrectly set.

>>>show *

Note or dump the most important values if needed.

And try the following and test to boot CD:

>>> set bootdef_dev ""

( >>> set dump_dev "" )


>>> init
>>> boot dkXXXX

Hope it helps,

Hello,
I have done whatever you told me about, and the following errors are solved :-
- device translate: device cannot be translated scsi 1 7 0 0 0 0 0
- prom_getenv: unable to convert scsi 1 7 0 0 0 0 0
- cdisk_ioctl: xpt_Get_log failed


after I started to boot from CDROM and go ahead with instillation,the instillation stopped suddenly in the middle
and went to prompt console and gives the following error:-
- cp-save_term exited with hlt_req=1r0= 000000.0000000
The provided error does not give me a chance to dignosse the problem.
how can I get more details about what going on during the installation?

please could you help me.

Re: Problem during installation Unix Compact Tru64 UNIX V5.1

Hello,

 

The last only message you reported( i.e. cp-save_term exited with hlt_req) is not enough to have an opinion.

I suppose that some other error messages were logged too like HALT code, panic, Machine check etc....

So the full footprint may help. ( may be a hardware issue  or a compatibility issue )
