offline diags to mirror boot disk ( HPUX 11.31 )

Built new 11.31 server. Mirrored disk and host is working.

I was told to add offline diags to mirror boot disk.

How is that done in 11.31?

thanks,

Re: offline diags to mirror boot disk ( HPUX 11.31 )

hi,

it depends upon the hardware? PA ot IA

if its Itanium you simply can do a dd copy from the original disk to the mirrored to the service partition which you should have created with idisk commands to start with

#dd if=/dev/rdsk/cxtxdxs3 of=/dev/rdsk/cxtxdxs3 bs=1024k

or run the offline diags cd and select the option to install?

if its PA then with mkboot commands

# ll /usr/sbin/diag/lig/updatediaglif*

If you are running 64-bit OS:

# mkboot -b /usr/sbin/diag/lif/updatediaglif2 -p ISL -p AUTO -p HPUX -p PAD -p LABEL /dev/rdsk/c?t?d?


however you probably will never use them anyway?
