IUX - Setup Network Booting Ignite-UX

Return Ignite-UX_Handbook

Set Up or Update the Software Source (SD-UX)

1. To create a depot from CD/DVD Core OS media use the "make_depots" command. For example, to create the necessary disk depot that corresponds to the HP-UX 11.11 core operating system CD/DVD that is connected at /dev/dsk/c0t0d0, enter:

make_depots -r B.11.11 -s /dev/dsk/c0t0d0
  • Notes:
  1. One or more depots are created in the /var/opt/ignite/depots/Rel_B.11.11 directory.
  2. Standard SD-UX hostname:depot can be use to copy remote depots.

2. If you used make_depots as described in step 1 to create your depots, use the "make_config" command to create Ignite-UX configuration files for each of the depots you plan to use. For example:

make_config -r B.11.11

This command creates configuration files for all depots found in the /var/opt/ignite/depots/Rel_B.11.11 directory. It also adds these configuration files to all /var/opt/ignite/INDEX entries for the HP-UX 11.11 release.

3. If you did not use make_depots to create your depots, run "make_config" and point it at a specific depot. For example:

make_config -s server.com:/depot_11_11 \
-c /var/opt/ignite/data/Rel_B.11.11/core_cfg

Now add a reference to the /var/opt/ignite/INDEX file:

manage_index -a -f /var/opt/ignite/data/Rel_B.11.11/core_cfg

Integrity Registered Client

  • Add to "/etc/bootptab" the register client definition.
IADEF:\
ht=ethernet:\
hn:\
bf=/opt/ignite/boot/nbp.efi:\
bs=48:\
sm=255.255.0.0:\
gw=16.118.112.1:\
ds=16.110.135.51:
rx260-03:tc=IADEF:ip=16.118.112.129:ha=00306E4A497D

Obtain the network configuration information from the client

There are two options to gather the required client network configuration.

1. Check "/etc/rc.config.d/netconf" general network configuration file.

INTERFACE_NAME[0]="lan1"
IP_ADDRESS[0]="192.168.112.129"
SUBNET_MASK[0]="255.255.0.0" <--- Network subnet mask

2. Using network configuration commands
