Using make_net_recovery

Command syntax

The basic make_net_recovery sintaxis is:

# make_net_recovery -v -p -s <Ignite-UX Server> \
-x inc_entire=vg00 -n #
-v = verbose
-p = preview
-s <Ignite-UX Server> = hostname, full qualified domain name or IP Address
-x inc_entire=vg00 = save all bootable volume group
-n # = Number of copies to save, default is 2, 1 is recommended
# make_net_recovery -v -p -s crc8000.cri.hp.com \
-x inc_entire=vg00 -n 1

PAX Patch Warning

         be patched with one of the following patches or later.
         If you do not load the pax patch, some files will not be
         correctly archived (see the Ignite-UX release notes for
         details):

Warning indicates system must have installed at least the recommended or higher PAX patch.

The patch family tree browser shows the lineage for a specified patch and it can be used to determine if you have installed the latest version of an specific patch.

To look for the PHCO_32438 patch family tree just go to:

http://www11.itrc.hp.com/service/patch/patchTree.do?patchid=PHCO_35998&sel={hpux:11.11,}&BC=main|search|patchDetail{PHCO_35998,{hpux:11.11,}}|

The next command line will shows if a patch is already installed and configured or not. If patch is not present swlist will not return an output.

Even when the make_net_recovery preview finish succesfully, it does no means Ignite server is properly configured to create the archive. The make_net_recovery preview will not check the nfs mount point inclusion on the Ignite server, so you may still have errors in the image creation proccess.

.                       User Interface and Media Options
 
   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 - setup basic networking, use defaults and go
   [   ]  Remote graphical interface running on the Ignite-UX server
 
   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).
