You will use the Ignite-UX terminal user interface
(TUI) to install HP-UX. It will be displayed on the client
console after the client successfully reboots.
Move between menu buttons with the tab key
and select by pressing enter. Help is available from
the majority of these screens.
Select Install HP-UX from the welcome screen by pressing enter.
NOTE: The console
firmware terminal type is currently set to “hp”. If
you are using any other type of terminal you will see “garbage”
on the screen following this message.
If this is the case, you will need to either change the
terminal type set in the firmware via GSP (if your GSP firmware version
supports this feature), or change your terminal emulation to match
the firmware. In either case you will need to restart if your terminal
and firmware terminal type do not match.
Press the 'b' key if you want to reboot now.
Diagnosis: Your console
is not set to the correct terminal type.
Correction: One solution is to run the client
console from an hpterm. Launch it with this command:
You must reboot the client by pressing b after the NOTE above, or if you missed this opportunity, reboot
by cycling the power. Continue from “Boot the Client System from the Ignite-UX Server”
See hpterm(1X) by issuing the command
If the Source Location Options menu is displayed,
leave it at the default selection: Ignite-UX
server based installation. For the User Interface Options,
select Advanced Installation by navigating
to that line with tab and pressing enter, or by pressing a, then select OK.
If there is more than one network interface on the
client system, you will be prompted to select the correct one for
connecting to the server system. Select the LAN interface you entered
in the server's /etc/bootptab or /etc/opt/ignite/instl_boottab file.
Ignite-UX then looks for networking information.
If a DHCP server is found, the NETWORK CONFIGURATION
screen will contain the client's hostname and IP address. If there
is networking configuration available for the server, it will be filled-in
as well. Make sure the NETWORK CONFIGURATION parameters are set so
the client system can contact the server. Then select OK.
Failed to read
“INDEX” file from the install server. Check that the
install server's IP address is correct and the server has the “Ignite-UX”
product loaded and is available via the tftp(1) service.
Press any key to return to the
network configuration menu:
Diagnosis: The client can't find the Ignite-UX server.
Correction: One possibility
is that the wrong LAN was selected from the “LAN Interface
Selection” menu above. Press any key to return to the LAN Interface
Selection menu and make sure the correct LAN is selected.
The Ignite-UX server will then be contacted for installation
configuration information for the client. (A dialog box will be displayed
on the server with information that this client has been found.) The
client configuration information is then displayed in the TUI version
of the client installation configuration interface, also referred
to as itool.
From the Configurations:
data field, select the correct cfg clause. This is the cfg clause
you created in step 2 of “Create the HP-UX OE Configuration Information on the Ignite-UX
Server”, and was named “B.11.23 From
OE Media” in the example.
The currently selected configuration
does not contain any environments. You may want to select another
Diagnosis: The default configuration does not have an OE depot in it.
Correction: This does not
affect the configuration you created. Select the cfg clause you created
as described above.
Configure your client's installation using the Ignite-UX
itool TUI. Modify the fields of the configuration interface at your
discretion. Navigate the TUI using the tab to move
around and by pressing enter to make selections.
You can use shortcut keys (indicated with an underline) to make a
selection, but they do not work when the cursor is positioned at an
input field. Using shortcuts can significantly reduce the time required
to navigate the TUI itool.
Not all fields in the configuration
interface require attention. In fact, a quick installation can be
launched by accepting the default configuration for your version of
HP-UX and then clicking Go!.
At a minimum, you might want to define the root password, set
the time zone, and set the DNS configuration information.
Make sure you read all the preinstall analysis information
on the itool Confirmation screen. If you feel the cold install may
proceed, select Go!.
After selecting Go!, the cold install will proceed. Status information is displayed
on the client console as the installation progresses.
The cold install of the client system is now complete.
