Unable to load OS1.6/1 with Netstation, Glance and Ignite options
- Load the OS1.6/1 with Netstation and Glance options first
One machine in the QA Lab was never able to load OS1.6/1 with the Netstation, Glance and Ignite options selected. The station would get about 10-15 minutes into the load and fail on the load of patch HPKL_10025. The install will continue and ultimately fail on the kernel build at the end of the load phase. If you look at the /var/adm/sw/swinstall.log file, you will see an ERROR that states something to the effect of a corrupt ar (archive) command.
This has only happened on one machine (B132 with 256 Mb RAM, 2 2Gb disks), but it happens everytime. Other machines of like architecture work fine.
The workaround is to load the OS1.6/1 with Netstation and Glance options first. When that has successfully completed, go back and install Ignite.
Remember, when Netstation is selected, it doesn't really load anything, it just sizes the LVMs so when the product is loaded later it will fit.
