Re: hardware problem

You should try to boot from the second

menu> boot alt

then stop and do

ISL> hpux -lq

Does it work?

Hope this helps!

Re: hardware problem

Hi Manal,
1)while severe started booting it will ask sever is going to autoobot.that press any buution to
interrupt the boot process.
2)menu> boot alt
3) It will ask interact with ISL (y/N) Y
4)isl> hpux -lq
then system will boot
after that you can trouble shoot the faulty disk using below coomands. cinsider your device path here.
i have choosen /dev/rdsk/c0todo
1) ioscan -fnC disk
2) diskinfo /dev/rdsk/c0todo
3) dd if=/dev/rdsk/c0/t0/d0 of=/dev/null bs=1024

For success, attitude is equally as important as ability
