Re: error when installing HP-UX O.S.

unknown processor family?

What is the date printed on the install media?

Too old to support the "i4" blade?


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

IIRC the system came out in 2012, so a version around year 2012 is likely the minimum.


Hope this helps!

Re: error when installing HP-UX O.S.

I have logged into the console via web browser, and mounted the DVD on my pc using virtual media.

Re: error when installing HP-UX O.S.

the "map -r" command shows the following:

and the internal disks LEDs are not lit, do not blink, it seems that the disks have no activity.

Is this the issue?
