Re: how to install os in brand new hp server?

As torsten told,

All versions are 11i, but

11iv2 11.12
or
11iv3 11.31

It depends on what you have ordered.

Your server can run 11i v2 or 11i v3, but not 11i v1.

Switch it on and see what you get.

If the disks are empty, you need to look what disk controller you have.

Shell> devices

If you see a smartarray P400, you need to create logical drives using ORCA.

In case disks are connected to the built-in LSI chip, consider to create a hardware mirror.

Now install the OS.

Yes, it should have mp-console after you connect to the serial connector either through a laptop or kvm connection.

The login user name and password will be listed on the screen when you just turn it on.

Go to cm and where you can also get the help to reset the ip and gateway, netmask and etc.

You can reinstall 11v2 with its cd.

I think when connect to MP console, it shows something like admin/admin, oper/oper. Those are the default user name and password. Unless you have modified them they will be kept there all the time.

Re: how to install os in brand new hp server?

If you have online jfs installed in your system, you can increase vg00 on line.

Re: how to install os in brand new hp server?

Correct myself. You can increase vg00 without online jfs. But when you increase logical volume on line then you need online jfs.

New servers from HP will come with 11.31 (11i v3). If you want 11.23 (11i v2), you must order the DVD from HP and reinstall completely. There is no migration backwards, just a cold install.

Re: how to install os in brand new hp server?

Did you read the link I posted?

Once logged on to MP (Admin/Admin), use "lc" to configure IP:

MP:CM> lc

Re: how to install os in brand new hp server?

As said before, you cannot *downgrade* from 11.31 to 11.31 - only cold install.

Insert DVD and boot from.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
