How to create bootable CD DVD media

Contents


Abstract

The following article shows how to create an ISO image for Ignite-UX Two-Step media recovery. This procedure has been tested on versions of Ignite-UX C.6.9.193 and newer. This task is normally executed on the Ignite-UX server, but can be done on clients with full Ignite-UX software bundles.

Procedure

1. Verified the current Ignite-UX release.

# swlist -l bundle | grep -i ignite
  IGNITE                C.7.4.157      HP-UX Installation Utilities (Ignite-UX)
  Ignite-UX-11-11       C.7.4.157      HP-UX Installation Utilities for Installing 11.11 Systems
  Ignite-UX-11-23       C.7.4.157      HP-UX Installation Utilities for Installing 11.23 Systems
  Ignite-UX-11-31       C.7.4.157      HP-UX Installation Utilities for Installing 11.31 Systems


2. Use make_media_install command to create the ISO image on temporary directory or mount point, for example /mnt. This mount point or directoy should have at least 512MB of free space, 800MB is highly recommended.

The following options are required for correct utilization of the make_media_install command:

-r <release> build media (LIF volume) for the specified HP-UX OS release; default = OS release of the system where the script is run.
-m <media_directory> path to directory under which to place the media image (for CD or DVD media), Ignite-UX config files, and with the -H option, the boot-image (LIF volume) file; default = /var/opt/ignite/media; see comments in the script about disk space management and file system type issues and how to build a logical volume if desired

Example

# /opt/ignite/data/scripts/examples/make_media_install -r B.11.31 -m /mnt

WARNING: Non-default -m option value specified along with default -p option value; the default directory could run out of disk space, should both options be given?
=== Step 1: Make Ignite-UX config files for golden image archive(s) ===
=== Step 2: Copy SD depot(s) and make config files for them ===
=== Step 3: Make a boot-image (LIF volume) ===
+ /opt/ignite/bin/make_medialif -a -r B.11.31 -f /opt/ignite/data/Rel_B.11.31/config -l /var/opt/ignite/media/pseudo_root/bootvol.lif
+ /opt/ignite/bin/instl_adm -b -F /var/opt/ignite/media/pseudo_root/bootvol.lif
=== Step 4: Make ISO media image ===
+ cp -p /opt/ignite/boot/Rel_B.11.31/EFI_CD_image /var/opt/ignite/media/pseudo_root
+ /opt/ignite/lbin/mkisofs -U -max-iso9660-filenames -no-emul-boot -b EFI_CD_image -R -eltorito-alt-boot -no-emul-boot -b bootvol.lif -o /mnt/image.iso /var/opt/ignite/media/pseudo_root
Warning: creating filesystem that does not conform to ISO-9660.
Warning: ISO-9660 filenames longer than 31 may cause buffer overflows in the OS.

+ Error 83 /opt/ignite/lbin/growisofs failed.
/opt/ignite/data/scripts/examples/make_media_install: ERROR: /opt/ignite/lbin/growisofs failed.

NOTE: The Error 83 /opt/ignite/lbin/growisofs failed error message is normal, since most HP-UX systems are not configured to burn CD/DVD images directly.

3. Verified the size of the ISO image.

# ll /mnt/*.iso
-rw-rw-rw-   1 root       sys        429207552 May  5 18:57 /mnt/image.iso

4. Move the ISO image to a system with burn capacities and create a CD/DVD.

5. Boot from the CD/DVD until you get to the Welcome to Ignite-UX screen. The screen below will show the steps to take to boot from tape after that:

  • Select Install HP-UX

   This screen lets you pick from options that will determine if an
   Ignite-UX server is used, and your user interface preference.

 Source Location Options:
   [ * ]  Media only installation
   [   ]  Media with Network enabled (allows use of SD depots)
   [   ]  Ignite-UX server based installation

 User Interface Options:
   [   ]  Guided Installation   (very basic installs - deprecated mode)
   [ * ]  Advanced Installation (recommended for disk and filesystem management)
   [   ]  No user interface - use all the defaults and go


   Hint: If you need to make LVM size changes, or want to set the
         final networking parameters during the install, you will
         need to use the Advanced mode (or remote graphical interface).

   This screen provides an option to switch the install source
   from the default CD/DVD to a recovery tape.  This is helpful
   for those systems and for tape devices which do not support
   booting from a tape.

If you enter the Help section you will see the following information:

- CD/DVD installation

    This is the default media method of installing a system when
    booting from local media (CD-ROM/DVD).

 - Boot from CD/DVD, recover from tape

    This option is a useful recovery method for IPF systems which do
    not suppot booting from tape or for PA systems with tape device
    which are not bootable. This method allows you to boot from a bootable
    CD/DVD, then switch to a tape drive which contains the recovery archive
    created for this system.
