1. I am geting HPUX prompt but when I am booting from single user mode or maintainance mode, it is not booting there also and giving me the same attached error.

2. I have also tried to boot from HPUX> boot vmunix and also tried HPUX>boot backup still geting same error.

3. Boot from First OS DVD and in the recovery shell running fsck from /sbin/fs/vxfs and /sbin/fs/vsfs5.0 it was showing fsck not found

Attached Errors are after booting from the HPUX OS MEDIA 1 and booting to the recovery shell.

Looks like your media is corrupted. You managed to run fsck at one stage. Can you invoke fsck again to check it fully?

Hi Shamroze,

I am unable to access your attachments. Can you paste the error here. What is your machine's model?

Are your OS HDDs mirrored? If yes, try booting from the alternate path.

Anyway, how you doing man?? This is Yasir Azam here.

Thanks Dennis. I can access the files from the links.



Hi Shamroze,

Try "ls -la" in the /sbin/fs/vxfs5.0 directory. Check to see if execute permissions are given to the file.

Then try "fsck -F vxfs -m /dev/rdisk/disk1_p2". Modify the disk path according to your disk. Let us know the outcome.

Taurian.

Re: HPUX 11.23 not booting

1) If root disk is mirrored then boot from root mirror disk.

2) give a try to bood from old kernel or backed up kernel

3) Try a gracefull shutdown and power on from MP / Console ( Just a try for complete power cycle and booting the server & monitor console logs)

4) Did any changes done like pacthing .. etc. then need to rollback your change.

Hi Shamroze,

Yes, I am still working in Karachi. Alhumdulillah all is going well.

Your fsck is returning sanity check as OK. There could still be hope. Try the following:

"fsck -F vxfs -o full,nolog /dev/vg00/rlvol7"

Let me know the output.
