Re: hp ux 11iv1 mirroring disk on rp 4440

I would do some things different:

3) # mkboot -l /dev/rdsk/c3t15d0
4) # mkboot -a "hpux -lq" /dev/rdsk/c3t15d0



This is an external disk, but where is the primary?



What is the exact message when booting from the primary? Where it stops?

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: hp ux 11iv1 mirroring disk on rp 4440

You say you took this from ioscan:

0/2/1.15.0

This points to a disk connected to a HBA in slot 7, SCSI ID of 15.



Internal disks start with 0/1/1/... and have SCSI ID of 0 or 1.



Please post an "ioscan -fn".

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
