Adding iso to hpvm is seen as a block device

Hi,

I'm running 11.31 on a host and have created a 11.31 hpvm

Attempting to boot from the iso fails and examination at EFI level shows that the iso is seen as a block device rather than an iso

 

host# swlist | grep -i integ

   SG-IVS-Toolkit                B.02.00        Serviceguard Toolkit for Integrity Virtual Servers

hpvmmodify -P hiptc801 -a disk:avio_stor::file:/iso/HPUX11iv3-Mar13.iso

I have tried with several iso ( which have worked on other machines) and all produce the same results

 

On hpvm guest console

Device mapping table
  blk0 : Acpi(PNP0A03,0)/Pci(0|0)/Scsi(Pun0,Lun0)
  blk1 : Acpi(PNP0A03,0)/Pci(0|0)/Scsi(Pun1,Lun0)

Thanks

Re: Adding iso to hpvm is seen as a block device

It should be :

dvd:avio_stor::file:/iso/...

and not

disk:avio_stor::file:/iso/...

 

Also make sure you have the correct ISO image (March 2013 consists of 2 DVDs).

Hi Stan,

 

What a fool I've been!

 

That was the fix

 

Thanks very much
