Re: Installing HP-UX + SUPERDOME

First connect to the switch and create a (port based) zone. Then boot from the installer dvd. After the initial scan done by the installer, the eva is aware of your server. Create a vdisk and present. Now let the installer scan the hardware again.
The installer will now see the disk - ready to proceed with installation...

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Hi MSN,

I suppose you have not followed the 'crystal clear' steps suggested by Torsten.

Once you configure Switch(note: u would need WWN no of HBA on SD, which you can find from shell), by zoning or otherwise, the disks are seen by server on which the OS will be installed when you boot from your CD/DVD.

Re: Installing HP-UX + SUPERDOME

Hi MSN,

Try using another DVD as it clearly says
'Load of DVD failed: Not Found'.

Check if you can read DVD on another server or PC, if so, try changing Drive.

Re: Installing HP-UX + SUPERDOME

The EVA will need to know the WWID of your HBA. You can get this from your SAN Switch. Also The EVA may well auto detect the WWID.

Add the host to the EVA using the correct WWID then add some LUN's and present them to the host. This is all done on the EVA.

It is also possible that the DVD option in your EFI boot menu is not pointing to the correct location. When your system powers up you should see output similar to the following. (this was done on an rx8640 so it will be somewhat different).

Note where your DVD drive is then drop into the EFI Shell from the boot options menu. In this case the DVD is fs2.
