mkboot error while mirroring boot disk

Hi experts,
Hi use hpxu 11V3, I try to mirroring my boot disk and after partitioning my second disk according a template file containing the following line:
3
EFI 500MB
HPUX
HPSP
I try to populate the new efi partition with the following command line: mkboot -e -l /dev/rdsk/.
But I get the following error message:
statvfsdev: I/O error
unable to stat device /dev/rdsk/
What does it mean and how can I correct it.

Thanks for your help

Re: mkboot error while mirroring boot disk

The file must contain:


3
EFI 500MB
HPUX 100%
HPSP 400MB



After running idisk+insf, do

efi_fsinit -d /dev/rdsk/c1t0d0s1

mkboot -e -l /dev/rdsk/c1t0d0




Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
