The Question is:
I have a new ES45 and am getting the invalid Boot Block erroor but I am
absolutely positive that the disk is correct. The boot command from the
factory is B DYB0.0.0.2.3 Flags(0,0)
What does the 0.0.2.3 mean ?? HELP
The Answer is :
Please confirm the target device as being appropriate for your
configuration, and please confirm that your system hardware
is correctly installed and operational.
The OpenVMS Wizard would generally assume a DK- or DG-class
disk device, for a SCSI or a Fibre Channel disk. DY device
prefix would tend to indicate that one or more SmartArray
controllers are present. (DYB would be the second.)
Please ensure you have followed the SmartArray installation
and configuration, followed by (if necessary) the installation
of OpenVMS on the target disk device.
There are potentially other disk devices available, check your
local hardware configuration. Various SHOW commands are available
at the SRM console, as is HELP.
If you are getting an invalid bootblock error, then the bootblock
is very likely invalid, or the device specification is incorrect.
(You do not indicate how you know the bootblock is valid.)
The digits after the device name are SRM console housekeeping, and
are strictly informational.
