changing vpmon Boot disks path

i booted the rx7640 in npar mode , and issue the following commands
- parstatus -p0 -V - to verify the current path
[Partition]
Partition Number : 0
Partition Name : Partition 0
Status : Active
IP Address :
Primary Boot Path : 1/0/0/3/0.6.0
Alternate Boot Path : 1/0/1/1/0/6/1
HA Alternate Boot Path : 1/0/1/1/0/6/0
--- Made the Change--
(herhxp01 root):/> parmodify -p0 -b 0/0/8/1/0.8.0
(herhxp01 root):/> parstatus -p0 -V
[Partition]
Partition Number : 0
Partition Name : Partition 0
Status : Active
IP Address :
Primary Boot Path : 0/0/8/1/0.8.0
--- boot system in vpar mode---
it is still showing the older path

(herhxp01 root):/> vparstatus -m
Console path: No path as console is virtual
Monitor boot disk path: 1.0.0.3.0.6.0
Monitor boot filename: /stand/vpmon
Database filename: /stand/vpdb

why it is not changed . I need to change to do an upgrade to my vpar which will hpux 11.31 and therefore change the vpmon boot disk poiting to vPars A.05.xx bundle.

please help.

Re: changing vpmon Boot disks path

I would use "setboot" in nPar mode or simply point to the disk you want in EFI (fsx:) and start the boot loader manually.

Running

# ioscan -fneCdisk

will help you to find the disk in EFI.

Hope this helps!

Re: changing vpmon Boot disks path

thanks.
what is meant by starting the boot loader manually. Also why parmodify didn't worked.

Re: changing vpmon Boot disks path

I never did this with parmodify, so I cannot tell.

Manually means, go to EFI shell, select the right disk (e.g. fs0:), go to efi/hpux and run hpux.efi - the boot loader.

You can let it run from there if the AUTO string is set to boot vpmon or stop the loader and force the system to boot vpmon.

Hope this helps!
