The current boot logical volume /dev/hd5 does not exist on hdisk4
AIX 4.1.2 RISC R30
Customer is unable to create a mksysb, he gets the following
The current boot logical volume /dev/hd5 does not exist on
1. lslv -hd5
LP PP1 PV1
0001 0001 hdisk0
2. ls -l /dev/ipldevice
12,5 are the major and minor numbers for this device
which are the same as hdisk4. hdisk0 which is suppose to
be the boot device has a major and minor number of 12,1.
3. cd /dev
mknod ipldevice c 12 1
change the permissions on ipldevice to crw------
bosboot -a -d /dev/hdisk0
bootlist -m normal hdisk0
4. We then tried to create a mksysb from the command line and
received the same error message.
5. bootlist -m normal -r
initially returned all zeros
6. bootlist -m normal hdisk0
7. bootinfo -b
shows that the system booted from hdisk4.
All the system needs to do now to fix the error messages is a
reboot so the bootinfo -b shows the system had booted now
from hdisk0 instead of hdisk4
