RP3440 panic after system upgrade from 11v1 to 11v2 update-ux

Hi,

We updated a rp3440 from hp-ux 11.11 to hp-ux 11.23 via update-ux. the update worked ok:

(1904 of 1906).
* Installing fileset "iCOD.ICOD-TCH-E-MSG,r=B.11.23.08.03.00.22"
(1905 of 1906).
* Installing fileset "iCOD.ICOD-TCH-U-MSG,r=B.11.23.08.03.00.22"
(1906 of 1906).
* Running install clean command /usr/lbin/sw/install_clean.
NOTE: tlremove is searching filesystem - please be patient
NOTE: Successfully completed
NOTE: tlinstall is searching filesystem - please be patient
NOTE: Successfully completed
* Building the software file "/var/adm/sw/needs_config" to be
used for post-reboot "swconfig" execution. The information in
this file will be used as input to "swconfig" after the system
reboots.

* Summary of Execution Phase:
* 25 of 1931 filesets were Skipped.
* 1906 of 1931 filesets had no Errors or Warnings.
* The Execution Phase succeeded.

NOTE: Software requiring a reboot has been installed, but the kernel
build, reboot, and configure steps are being skipped because
those tasks are being done by the program that invoked
swinstall.

but after the reboot I get:

Unfortunately this is why it is suggested in the ITRC forums you coldload to 11.23, not use update-ux. :-(

Somehow it is missing drivers for root?

You might want to contact the Response Center to see of they have some non-coldload solution to this update-ux problem?

I'm not sure, if there is a way of getting out of here, it won't boot with -lm nor -is.

Could I try booting from 11.23 Cd and installing a new vmunix kernel?

I assume that's the same as a coldload. So if the Response Center has nothing better, you'll need to go with that.

Thnx Dennis, the problem with this server is that it doesn't have support any more, it's for testing.

What I meant, is boot from the cd go in to the recovery cd and use:

r. Recover an unbootable HP-UX system

al try it out, just in case the problema I am having is that the kernel didn't compile ok

If that allows you to add drivers??

The recovery cd can restore the LIF area or install a default kernel.

IMHO both is not the problem here.

Can you do "hpux -lm" boot?

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
