[Veritas-bu] HP-UX Media Server to boot up....

Of course it depends a lot on the age and class of the equipment. My
RP8420 with over 10 TB attached boots much faster than one of my old N
Class machines with only 2 TB attached. Also he says "HP-UX" without
mentioning version. 9x? 10x? 11? 11i?. Itanium box or PA-RISC?
Many variables can affect this including how one has zoned storage
(assuming a SAN). I recall one of the original EMC Symmetrix arrays to
which we attached an HP-UX box (probably 10.20) took forever to do
initial boot and errored out for the load because it actually scanned
all the disk drives in the array not just the ones we were going to use
on the particular host via the SCSI connections we'd made.

We are a large hpux customer. But I don't have any 10TB systems yet...
But almost!! One of our media server have about 6 TB and I haven't seen
any time delay in boot time after adding more disk to the system. The
boot time now is the same as it was before the 6 TB.
If you look at the console when then server boots, what does it
delay/hang on? I would also recommend you to look at itrc.hp.com (if you
have a user). Often problem with DNS/NIS causes long boot time..

I have a question for the group. I have an HP-UX Media Server
with 10TB of disk storage attached to the SAN. When we reboot this
system it can take up to 90 minutes for it to come up. Is anybody out
there experiencing this same issue? If so, Is there anything that can
be done to speed this process up?
