interrupt the BCH pressing any key from the MP console and boot in Single user mode.

BCH MAin Menu>boot
Inetract with IPL(y/n)?
press here y to interact with IPL

ISL>hpux -is
the system shall boot in Single user mode and root access will be given.

#fsck /dev/vg00/lvol1
#fsck /dev/vg00/lvol3
#fsck /dev/vg00/lvol4
#fsck /dev/vg00/lvol5
#fsck /dev/vg00/lvol6
#fsck /dev/vg00/lvol7
#fsck /dev/vg00/lvol8
#fsck /dev/vg00/lvol9
#fsck /dev/vg00/lvol10

#mount -a
see if FS at which /dev/vg00/lvol8 is mounted full or not.

go into that dierctory and remove the unnecessary files to make that free.

once done reboot the system normally.
#shutdown -ry 00

Reboot the server
#shutdown -ry 0
and login into single user mode, by interppeting the normal startup process.

In PDC menu you will get

Processor is starting the autoboot process.
To discontinue, press any key within 10 seconds.

Press any key and in Main Menu

Main Menu: Enter command or menu > search

Searching for potential boot devices
This may take several minutes.

Main Menu: Enter command or menu > boot pri*
(* - Your bootbale device number)

Interact with ISL (Y or N)?> Y
When you get the ISL prompt, use the following command to boot into single-user mode.
ISL> hpux -is

then mount the file system
#mount /{file system name}

and check the file system & delete unneccesery files & directory from the file system.

and reboot the server
