help to create the Windows host on hpux11.31

Hi,

First am trying to create windows guest on HPUX11.31 server. while starting the 1st step am getting error like below.:

"bash-4.0# ./hpvmcreate -P win1 -O windows -c 1 -r 2G -a disk:scsi::disk:/dev/rdsk/disk2 -a network:lan::vswitch:edunet
HPVM guest win1 configuration problems:
Warning 1 on item /dev/rdsk/disk2: '/dev/rdsk/disk2' backing device does not exist.
These problems may prevent HPVM guest win1 from starting.
hpvmcreate: The creation process is continuing.
bash-4.0# "

Please let me know solution and how to proceed this.

Regards,
B.Suresh

Well here is your indication iof the problem:
Warning 1 on item /dev/rdsk/disk2: '/dev/rdsk/disk2' backing device does not exist.

You have mixed Legacy and Agile addressinf, it should read:
./hpvmcreate -P win1 -O windows -c 1 -r 2G -a disk:scsi::disk:/dev/rdisk/disk2 -a network:lan::vswitch:edunet

Note the device file is /dev/rdisk/disk2 (with the i in it !!)
