To media boot an HP-UX client, do the following.

To restore an HP-UX client with media boot

  1. Prepare to restore the client using the SRT you created on the bootable media.

    See Preparing a client for restore

  2. Insert the bootable CD or bootable DVD into the CD-ROM drive.

  3. Turn off the client, then turn on.

  4. When you are prompted, press the Space bar to stop the normal boot process.

  5. Search for the location and name of the CD-ROM drive.

    The search utility may be useful to determine this information.

  6. Find the CD-ROM drive from the list of devices and boot the computer using that device with the boot command.

  7. In response to the Interact with IPL prompt, type No.

  8. In response to the Run a Recovery Shell prompt, type Yes.

  9. In response to the Start Networking prompt, type Yes.

  10. In response to the Choose the Network Interface prompt, type the default LAN device to boot from.

    You must enter the default LAN because the firmware uses this address for booting from the Ignite server. Note that any network interface card can be used for accessing the SRT or backups, but the default LAN must be used for booting.

  11. Enter the following information when prompted:

    • Hostname

    • IP address

    • Default gateway

    • Subnet mask

  12. At the Is this network information temporary prompt, type No.

  13. Use the arrow key to scroll to OK and press Enter.

  14. Enter the required information at the following BMR process prompts:

    • Client name (for a discovery boot, enter the client's name as it appears in the Tasks view from the prepare-to-discover operation)

    • NetBackup master server name

    • NetBackup master server IP address

    • NetBackup master server gateway IP address

    The restore begins.
