Unable to boot after Ignite


I ignited a rx2620 Ita machine with a 11.23 image from another 2620 but now it's unable to boot. Why is that? This is the message when I try to boot in EFI boot manager.

Loading.: HP-UX Primary Boot: 0/1/1/0.0.0
Load of HP-UX Primary Boot: 0/1/1/0.0.0 failed: Not Found

Re: Unable to boot after Ignite

Hi,

Check with the settings and ensure that your disk from which you try to boot is on the same path as you mentioned.

You can go into the shell and do a map -r to see the disk and change to that using

fsx: <-----x is the number that you see after map -r

and try to boot the server manually. If it boots , set the boot path from there using setboot.

If not booting , possibly your ignite would have not completed as expected.

This is what I get, how I am supposed to boot off another disk?

Re: Unable to boot after Ignite

Navigate to fs0 and check if the dirs/files available and do as below.

shell> fs0:
fs0:>dir

fs0:>hpux

Re: Unable to boot after Ignite

Hi,

please type , fs0: and enter. Do a DIR there and see what all the directories there. If it shows you EFI and all there try to boot from there by typing "hpux".

Else do the same on fs1:

I will try it -


fs0:\> dir
Directory of: fs0:\

01/18/10 12:23p 296 STARTUP.NSH
1 File(s) 296 bytes
1 Dir(s)

Re: Unable to boot after Ignite

It doesn't look good, doesn't boot from either fs0 or fs1

It's here:

fs0:\EFI\HPUX> ls
Directory of: fs0:\EFI\HPUX

04/17/08 07:24p 4,096 .

04/17/08 07:40p 24,576 nbp.efi
04/17/08 07:40p 12 AUTO


Simply select your file system (e.g. fs0:) and run "hpux.efi"!

Hope this helps!

Re: Unable to boot after Ignite

You have boot loader installed. But looks like issue with the kernel.

Do an 'ls' from HPUX> prompt and see the files under /stand.
Also do a boot backup to see if any backup kernel exists and can be booted.

Re: Unable to boot after Ignite

Shalom,

I wasn't aware that EFI configuration was included in an Ignite backup.

I do not think it is.

Once you configure EFI to boot HP-UX, you should be able to boot, or at worst restore Ignite anew and be in business.

Re: Unable to boot after Ignite

Problem is, there is no kernel (vmunix) and even no backup!

Have a look into

last_install/

but there is something wrong with your ignite image!

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: Unable to boot after Ignite

Hello,

I strongly believe it to be an ignite issue. Can you try to reignite it. I would recommend to have another ignite image on a tape from the working server. Once it finishes, see the logs to ensure your image is perfect. Then install it on ther server you desired. Are there any option left behind ???

drwxr-xr-x 5 root sys 8192 Nov 7 2006 last_install/

I think somebody play around with the kernel on the system from which you took ignite backup...I believe there is a valid kernel in the last_install directory
As Torsten suggested , boot from that..



HPUX>ls /stand/last_install



if you are finding vmunix in last_install directory, boot from that kernel



HPUX> boot /stand/last_install/vmunix
