The Question is:
We recently installed a HP storage MSA1000 on our Alpha 4100 and would like to
boot the system from this new disk instead of from old disk (RAID). All info.
were successfully moved to the MSA1000 disks except the system disk.
Our current BOOT command is
BOOT DRA188.8.131.52.1 (old disk)
Our new system device on the MSA1000 is DGA1 and we copied all info. on DRA1 to
Would the command
BOOT DGA184.108.40.206.1 work?
If not, would you tell us the new BOOT command?
The Answer is :
The command is BOOT DRA1 or BOOT DGA1, with the remainder of the
command being determined by and being entirely console specific;
you need only reference the DRA1: or DGA1: or DKA100: or other
such device specification, and allow the console to make its own
determination of the remainder of the device specification.
Should you enter the command into an environment variable rather
than at the BOOT command, the requirement for input solely of the
device name holds true as well.
