If you have the working hp-ux server somewhere near, you can temporary install an Ignite-UX there, and install hp-ux via network.

Re: unable install rp7420

If you do a "sea" only, the master cell will be searched only.
Devices on the other cell will NOT be found.

With "sea all" all cells will be searched.






Main Menu: Enter command or menu > he sea

---- SEARCH Help -------------------------------------------------------------

SEARCH is used to search for potential boot devices in the system.

SEArch Search for potential boot device attached to the
core cell. (Default)
SEArch Search for potential boot device attached to the
cell.
SEArch Search the specified path for potential boot devices
SEArch ALL Search for potential boot devices attached to any
cell within the partition.

[0-1] Cell must be in partition
is a module path defined in I/O notation, such as 1/2/3.4.5.6

The first 20 devices found will be displayed.

The devices found will have a path label such as P0, P1, ... P19
that may be referred to in the BOot command.

Short Command for SEArch: SEA

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: unable install rp7420

Because of the hardware path.

1/0/0/3/0.6 - upper left internal disk
1/0/0/3/1.2 - DVD
1/0/1/1/0/1/1.6 - upper right internal disk


with cell 0 and a second core I/O installed:

0/0/0/3/0.6 - lower left internal disk
0/0/0/3/0.5 - lower right internal disk

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
