Mount an AS500 harddisk in Windows or Linux
Is there any application to read the files of a AS500 (HP-UX) harddisk without a running AS500 computer?
I was able to attach the disc to a computer with SCSI card, Windows 7, and even take a raw copy.
But, I was not able to find any system or tool to mount the filesystem inside.
Tried with Windows, some windows tools, Ubuntu, Debian, Solarix....
You could be S.O.L. on this one. Basically, you probably need to boot an old Advant or HP-UX station and read the files off it using Kermit. ( Which is the recommended way if you are upgrading Advant Graphics to 800xA VB graphics )
Edit: You might be able to mount the VxFS disk onto a redhat Linux Distro .... https://community.hpe.com/t5/System-A... But the warning seems to be this could also go horribly wrong and you should mount the disk read only.
and also ....
But the best way is rely on ESXi backup solutions to protect your data and have no problems with extracting files.
