Installing Ignite-UX

Get the latest Flash Player to see this video.

1. Verify for previous installed Ignite-UX software:

# swlist -l fileset | grep -i ignite

2. Verify depot content:

# swlist -s `pwd`/Ignite-UX-11-ALL_C.7.6.100.depot

3. Install software:

# swinstall -s `pwd`/Ignite-UX-11-ALL_C.7.6.100.depot \* @

4. Verify software installation:

# swlist -l fileset -a state IGNITE

5. Check that installation script added the tftp service at /etc/inetd.conf file

tftp dgram udp wait root /usr/lbin/tftpd tftpd /opt/ignite /var/opt/ignite

6. Check that installation script added the instl_boots service at /etc/inetd.conf file

instl_boots dgram udp wait root /opt/ignite/lbin/instl_bootd instl_bootd

Configure Ignite-UX with B.11.11 SD-UX Depot

Get the latest Flash Player to see this video.

1. Verify previous installed Ignite-UX software:

# swlist -l fileset | grep -i ignite

2 Backup /var/opt/ignite directory

# cd /var/opt
# tar -cvf /var/tmp/ignite.tar ./ignite

3. Provide additional storage for /var/opt/ignite clients and recovery archives

# vgdisplay /dev/<vgname>
# lvcreate -L <MB> -n <lvol_name>
# newfs -F vxfs -o largefiles /dev/<vgname>/r<lvol_name>
# rm -rf /var/opt/ignite
# mkdir /var/opt/ignite
# chown bin:bin /var/opt/ignite
# echo "/dev/<vgname>/<lvol_name> /var/opt/ignite vxfs largefiles,delaylog 0 2" >> /etc/fstab
# mount /var/opt/ignite

4. Recover /var/opt/ignite backup data into /var/opt/ignite

# cd /var/opt
# tar -xvf /var/tmp/ignite.tar

5. Verify B.11.11 Dec06 depot

# swlist -l depot
# swlist -l bundle -s /depot/oscores/11.11/Dec06.MC0

6. Configure Ignite-UX with B.11.11 Depot

# /opt/ignite/bin/ignite

Register Client Ignite-UX SD-UX Installation

Get the latest Flash Player to see this video.

1. Identified client MAC Address using the GSP/MP Interface

# IN
# LA

2. Add MAC Address reservation to the Booting IP Address using the Ignite-UX Interface.

# /opt/ignite/bin/ignite

3. Verify entry on "/etc/opt/ignite/instl_boottab".

# cat /etc/opt/ignite/instl_boottab

4. Boot client from the Ignite-UX Server

Main Menu: Enter command or menu > bo lan.<ignite-ux_ip_address> install
  • Choose operating system release
  • Select "Install HP-UX"
  • Select "Advanced Installation"
  • Choose boot nic.
  • Interrupt DHCP scanning, configure set network configuration
  • Use itool to select HP-UX 11i OE-64bit installation and change file systems size
  • Confirm installation
  • Examine SD-UX based installation

Using make_net_recovery

Get the latest Flash Player to see this video.

1. Verify Ignite-UX server version and network information.

2. Verify Ignite-UX client version and network information. Configure system for "files" hostname resolution.

3. Create recovery_cmds depot.

# /opt/ignite/lbin/pkg_rec_depot

4. Install recovery_cmds depot on the client.

# swinstall -s <ignite-ux_server>:/

5. Run make_net_recovery in preview mode to verify installation state.

# /opt/ignite/bin/make_net_recovery -p -v -s <ignite-ux_server> -x inc_entire=vg00

6. Add latest "pax" commulative path

7. Run make_net_recovery in preview mode to verify installation state.

8. Run make_net_recovery to create the archive, identified errors.

# /opt/ignite/bin/make_net_recovery -v -s <ignite-ux_server> -x inc_entire=vg00

9. Identified required NFS mount points, add entry on /etc/exports in the Ignite-UX server

# echo "/var/opt/ignite/recovery/archives/<hostname> -anon=2,access=<hostname>" >> /etc/exports
# exports -av
# mkdir -p /var/opt/ignite/recovery/archives/<hostname>
# chown bin:bin /var/opt/ignite/recovery/archives/<hostname>
# exports -av

10. Run make_net_recovery to create the archive, check flist file and archive creation.

# /opt/ignite/bin/make_net_recovery -v -s <ignite-ux_server> -x inc_entire=vg00

11. Verify make_net_recovery archive

# cd /var/opt/ignite/recovery/archives/<hostname>
# gunzip < <archive> | tar -tvf - | more

12. Monitor the archive creation on the NFS server. Check the completion of the process.

Using make_net_recovery with non-default NFS

Get the latest Flash Player to see this video.

1. Verify Ignite-UX client version.

2. Verify Ignite-UX server version.

3. Check that the client is accesible from the server using rlogin / remsh protocol.

4. Add recovery client in the Ignite-UX server using remsh connection.

5. Verify the NFS storage server, in this case, a Solaris 10 x86 using NFS 4 to share /export/home/archives/crc8000 directory.

6. Run make_net_recovery in preview mode to verify interaction.

7. Run make_net_recovery to create the archive.

8. Monitor the archive creation on the NFS server. Verify archive final status.

System cloning with make_net_recovery

Get the latest Flash Player to see this video.

1. Copy the /var/opt/ignite/clients/<MAC_ADDRESS> directory from the source server recovery archive to the MAC address of the bootable network card on the target server

2. Link the new <MAC_ADDRESS> to the target host name.

3. Change the hostname clause on client_name file.

4. Ignite the config.sys file, this is an error on the video. The is no need to update it.

5. Edit host.info file to reflect new client configuration, specially the HW model, boot disk HW path and host name.

6. Trim hw.info and io.info files.

7. Correct the remote archive configuration file.

8. Edit control_cfg file MODEL clause. This steps is optional. Is the hardware is too different, it's better to let the file as is.

9. Edit system_cfg file, correct boot disk path, go to the end of the archive and change the network configuration to reflect the desired values. Changing the lan card HW path is optional, but it removes some warnings from the Ignite-UX interface if the source and destiny server don't have the same LAN cards HW paths.

10. Boot from lan and install the recovery archive.
