Network install on SP2 causes a disk to go defined
SP2 Node 39H
DISK: 2.2gb 16bit
ADAPTER: Fast and Wide Adapter
Customer is doing a network boot then installs from a
mksysb. Upon reboot hdisk0 goes from a Available state
to a define state, then is reconfig. at hdisk1.
The problem is the network boot image does not have
the support for the ENHANCED SCSI 2 ADAPTER, so the disk
shows up as a Other Scsi Disk in service mode. When the
system boots to normal mode hd5 has the support for the
ENHANCED SCSI 2 ADAPTER so the disk then shows up
at the next available number as a 2.2gb 16bit and the
hdisk0 (osd) shows up as defined.
FIX use sysback/6000 since it builds the network boot
image with all the current device support
FIX apply this APAR: IX54303 (currently not available)
WORKAROUND: Run the dsksync fax (available from 1-800-IBM-4FAX,
fax \#1910) to get the disk to the correct order.
Closing with customer approval
