Re: ignite-UX

Hello Gany.
1. pa-risc: boot of a dvd or tape or LAN boot., once this is done follow on screen instructions.

2. Itanium boot of a DVD or LAN boot, boot of tape is not supported on itanium (as far as I know), boot of a DVD has to be configured in EFI shell.

3. I never had the need to recover an itanium server, but I suppose it's the same.

4. try the following path for log files

Hope this helps. Have a great day.

Re: ignite-UX


To restore an entire system the procedure is different.

To extract a single file, its just a tar command.

Note: You can not restore an HP-UX 11.11 Ignite backup, which is a PA-RISC only OS to a IA-64 Itanium based system.

Some applications like Oracle for 11.23 have different versions for PA-RISC versus IA-64 and therefore software reinstall might be needed.

More details would assist in getting you better help.
