vpar boot fails

Hi Experts:

I have created a new V-par form a running V-par & issued vparstatus new vpar it's fine.

2. Next i booted the new v-par with the ignite tape taken from the running v-par.

3. To see the booting mode, when i logged into the GSP it shows the following:

MP MAIN MENU:

CO: Consoles
VFP: Virtual Front Panel
CM: Command Menu
CL: Console Logs
SL: Show Event Logs
FW: Firmware Update
HE: Help
X: Exit Connection

[rp7440_1] MP> co

Partitions available:

# Name
--- ----
0) Partition 0
Q) Quit

Please select partition number: 0


Connecting to OS Console: Partition 0

(Use to return to main menu.)


- - - - - - - - - - Prior Console Output - - - - - - - - - -

If this is the case, you will need to either change the terminal type
set in the firmware via GSP (if your GSP firmware version supports
this feature), or change your terminal emulation to match the
firmware. In either case you will need to restart if your terminal and
the firmware terminal type do not match.
Press the 'b' key if you want to reboot now.

Re: vpar boot fails

The complete message is likely


NOTE:
The console firmware terminal type is currently set to "hp". If you
are using any other type of terminal you will see "garbage" on the
screen following this message.
If this is the case, you will need to either change the terminal type
set in the firmware via GSP (if your GSP firmware version supports
this feature), or change your terminal emulation to match the
firmware. In either case you will need to restart if your terminal and
the firmware terminal type do not match.
Press the 'b' key if you want to reboot now.





What terminal emulator do you use?

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: vpar boot fails

Tortsen : am using a laptop, in that i check in the hyperterminal its auto detect it says.

In the GSP now if i press b it will reboot the new v-par alone or the entire N-par0?

@ Iqbal: I have only tape option to get it done, previous running 2 v-pars are create from tape image only.

Still its in the boot phase only for past 1 hrs, whether it will take time to boot up, but as far as its not a normal behaviour,

Re: vpar boot fails

I always had problems with hyperterminal, so I usually use putty.


hyperterminal may produce problems with various settings.
