Also looking for the best way to boot from another system's drive over ethernet...those machines "lan devices" are listed as bootable devices but won't boot. Basically I have an old HP9000 750/66 tower that has a corrupted /etc/passwd file...hpux hell. This makes it impossible to even boot to a single user mode. I don't know of any other way to selectively replace that file or edit that file with the options I have available booting to the "scsi.6.0 isl" level. I guess an option I will try is to build a system recovery tape from another system and boot from that tape, attempt to get to single user, and then attempt to mount the offending disk with the corrupted /etc/passwd file. I would like to use one of the other systems I have on the "lan" instead (I have a HP720, another PA7000 based system thats has virtually the same processor and unix configuration) . A convenience factor. What shows on the list of bootable devices is simply the "lan" device IP address. I need to figure out how to get one of the other systems drives....ie. instead of something like the scsi.6.0 entry on the problem systems list, a unique name for those drives on one of the other working systems on my little network, with a bootable image.
I wait your opinions on:
