efi_cp error: Invalid EFI partition:

In my mirror script in ITA (11.23), the following blows up, any idea why?

I am attaching the complete mirror script. It worked before many times so what's going on now.

# efi_cp -d /dev/rdsk/c2t1d0s1 -u /EFI/HPUX/AUTO /tmp/AUTO.pri Invalid EFI partition: /dev/rdsk/c2t1d0s1
efi_cp: open device failed(errno = 2)

Is this disk device present on the target system:

Re: efi_cp error: Invalid EFI partition:

This line will ask you somethink like "sure to proceed?" - you need to answer "yes", "y" only will fail.

idisk -wf $PARTITION_FILE /dev/rdsk/$MIR_DISK



This line is behind the "echo"

efi_fsinit -d /dev/rdsk/${MIR_DISK}s1


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

It's not.... I just realized, the system I have is 11.31, so something must have changed between 11.23 and 11.31, this script no longer works.

Is there a current mirror script for 11.31 Itanium?

Never mind, it _is_ 11.23

Why is that device file missing?

This is the problem. There is a missing device file for the primary disk.

Re: efi_cp error: Invalid EFI partition:

I found out what the problem is, there was confusion between primary and mirror disk. Just because the disk is the first one in the ioscan list, doesn't mean it's primary.

I swapped them and the script runs nicely.
