0506-322 error on "bosboot"
Env: AIX 3.2.5.
Desc: The command "bosboot -a -d /dev/hdisk0" fails with:
mount: 0506-322 Cannot determine log device to use for /dev/hd5
0301-155 bosboot: mkfs failed for /var/tmp/blv/disk.fs.
0301-165 bosboot: WARNING! bosboot failed - do not attempt to boot device.
The customer is mirroring rootvg, and has set up an alternate
boot device called hd5x.
Action: We checked /etc/filesystems and found that there was only one
/blv entry, that appeared as such:
dev = /dev/hd5x
vol = "spare"
mount = false
check = false
free = false
vfs = jfs
log = /dev/hd8
There needs to be a SEPARATE /blv entry for each boot device
We added a SECOND entry, identical to the above, with the line
"dev = /dev/hd5", and the above bosboot command ran successfully.
As hd5x resided on hdisk1, we were also able to run the
following command to rebuild the boot image on that drive:
\# bosboot -a -l /dev/hd5x -d /dev/hdisk1
