how to cancel bootsys

Hi,

I entered a bootsys command incorrectly (specifying the server instead of the client) and the ignite server has now rebooted and it wants to reinstall the OS.

How can I cancel this pls!?

Re: how to cancel bootsys

bootsys will change the auto boot string to the install kernel.

To go back to the original kernel, stop the boot process at BCH and interact while booting.

Main Menu: Enter command or menu > bo pri
Interact with IPL (Y, N, or Cancel)?> y

Booting...

Re: how to cancel bootsys

You can also check and set the autofile from tis point:

ISL> hpux show autofile
Show autofile
: disk(0/1/1/0.0.0.0.0.0.0;0x800000)
AUTO file contains (hpux)



ISL> hpux set autofile "hpux -lq"

Set autofile
: disk(0/1/1/0.0.0.0.0.0.0;0x800000)
AUTO file now contains (hpux -lq)

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
