root disk mirror 11.11 PA-Risc

Hello,

 

I have just installed 11.11 on a PA-Risc server and I have the need to mirror the boot disk. Can someone please let me know the exact syntax for this process?

 

I have been looking round the interweb and each process I find is different to the other hence me posting this post :-)

 

Cheers

 

Nick

(see appendix)


Hope this helps!

Re: root disk mirror 11.11 PA-Risc

Hello,

 

I'm just going through the mirroring process and so far so go!

 

Just to be sure, do I need to add the boot mirror disk to /stand/bootconf ?

 

It mentions this in the guide but I want to be 100% sure as another one of out HP servers that has been mirrored has not got the boot mirror disk in that file!

Re: root disk mirror 11.11 PA-Risc

Whenever there is a patch for the bootloader, the installer will look into this file to find all the boot disks and update the loader.

 

You should insert the mirror disk there.


Hope this helps!
