Once you have successfully booted the client system from the Ignite-UX server using one of the previously discussed methods, the following screen will appear on the client console.

Figure 9-3 Welcome to Ignite-UX!

Welcome to Ignite-UX!

Select Install HP-UX. (Move between menu buttons with the Tab key, and select by pressing Enter.)

TIP: As an alternative to using the Tab key to navigate, simply type the shortcut key (the underlined letter) of the item you wish to select. For instance, press B to reboot.

Figure 9-4 User Interface and Media Options

User Interface and Media Options

Leave the selection for User Interface Options at the default: Advanced Installation.

TIP: Similar to the previous screen, you can use shortcut keys (indicated with an underline) to make a selection.

Selecting Cancel will return you to the Welcome to Ignite-UX! screen.

For a network boot, Ignite-UX will then look for networking information.

Figure 9-5 Searching for a DHCP Server

Searching for a DHCP Server

If no DHCP server is found, the following NETWORK CONFIGURATION screen is displayed.



If a DHCP server is found, the NETWORK CONFIGURATION screen will contain the client's hostname and IP address. If there is networking configuration information on the server, the parameters regarding contacting the server will be filled-in as well.

Set the NETWORK CONFIGURATION parameters so the client system can contact the Ignite-UX server. When the parameters are set, select OK.

The server will then be contacted for its installation configuration information for the client. (A dialog box will be displayed on the server with information that this client was found.) The client configuration information is then displayed in the terminal user interface (TUI) version of the client installation configuration interface (itool).

NOTE: The NETWORK CONFIGURATION screen has input fields. Typing a shortcut key, such as O for OK, while the cursor is positioned at an input field will result in an O being entered in the field instead of selecting the OK button.

Figure 9-7 The TUI Version of itool

The TUI Version of itool

The TUI itool has the same functionality as the GUI itool that runs on the Ignite-UX server. Navigate the TUI using the Tab to move around and by pressing Enter to make selections. See “The Client Installation Configuration Interface” for detailed information on using the client installation interface to configure a client's installation.

TIP: Shortcut keys also work in the itool TUI, but similar to the NETWORK CONFIGURATION screen, you cannot use them when positioned at an input field. Using shortcuts can significantly reduce the time required to navigate the TUI itool.

When the installation has been configured, select Go! to start the installation.
