If I do the following:
am I creating the SLT from, CONFIG or TESTCFG?
Jon Ose replies:
Remember, docs.hp.com is your friend:
The command for
the SYSGEN utility is SYSGEN. SYSGEN has four positional
[basegroup] [,newgroup ] [,inputfile] [,outputfile]
parameter specifies the group in the SYS account that contains the
configuration data file set to be used or changed. The newgroup
parameter specifies the group used to store data. If you do not
specify newgroup, SYSGEN stores any configuration changes in the base
group by default. If the group specified by newgroup already exists,
SYSGEN asks, at keep time, whether or not it should overwrite that
group with new information. At keep time, if the user does a KEEP
with no parameters, SYSGEN keeps the current base group unless
newgroup was specified, in which case the group given is
replacing my old Model 10 with a Model 20 on MPEXL_SYSTEM_VOLUME_SET,
this will of course require a Re + INSTALL. Whats the best way
to re-instate my network config files? Just restore NMCONFIG and
NPCONFIG? Can I use my old CSLT to re-add all my old non-Nike drives
and mod the product IDs in Sysgen, or do I have to add them manually
after using the Factory SLT?
Gilles Schipper replies:
- using your CSLT to
install onto LDEV 1
- modify your i/o to
reflect new/changed config.
- use volutil to add
non-LDEV1 volumes appropriately
- restore directory
or directories from backup
- preform system
reload from full backup - using the keep, create, olddate,
partdb,show=offline options in the restore command
- reboot again
No need for
separate restores of specific files.
We had another
hard drive fail this weekend. It was in an enclosure of old 2GB
drives that we really did not need, so I just unplugged them and
rebuilt my volumes without them. However, when I boot up I get error
messages that path 10/4/0.20-26 cant be mounted. How do I get
rid of these messages?
Gilles Schipper replies:
safely ignore the messages, but if you want them not to reappear,
simply remove those devices from your IO configuration via SYSGEN,
keep the new configuration to config.sys and reboot with a start
norecovery. When youre back up again, you should create a new
Paul Edwards adds:
Use SYSGEN with
DOIONOW or IOCONFIG to delete them. No reboot is required.
I am trying to put
together a 4/40 tape library. It came with one tape drive. When I add
the second it says I need to update the firmware. There are two
passwords on a 4/40, one is the administrator password, the other is
the service password. I cant seem to get the
service password. I would think that I need that password
to update the firmware. Has anyone ever reset the service password on
a Surestore 4/40?
Bob J replies:
You do not
need a password to update the firmware. That admin password can be
changed, but most folks just leave it at 1234.
programs in a job stream, is there some way to prevent the page eject
that is generated each time a RUN <prog> is used? Seems to me
that I read something about this long ago, but I cannot find anything
on it now.
XEQ for RUN.
