vpar crash on upgrading 11i v3

Hi Guru's,

I am upgrading my 11i v2 to v3 on itanium superdome.

I am having virtual partion A.04.05
I used "update-ux -s /cdrom" command to upgrade it.

My upgradation was almost completed and then suddenly its rebooted. After reboot I got below error message and from that point of time I am not able to get the OS.

The error I m getting after reboot is :

==============================================

Also, I m not able to get EFI shell prompt too. May be the "Autoboot Delay" is set to 0 sec. Not able to reach to EFI Boot Manager too.

How should I change this delay parameter in this case?

Appreciate your help and suggestions. Right suggestions will be awarded asap.

Re: vpar crash on upgrading 11i v3

You need to stop all vpars, switch (reboot) to npars mode, upgrade this os instance, upgrade vpars software, repeat this on all vpars and finally then switch back to vpars mode and boot the vpmon.

Did you do this?

Not possible to upgrade (like you did) while other vpars are running.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
