mksysb Restore Hangs with LED C31 on F50 with LFT
OS Level: AIX Version 4.2.1
When running a mksysb restore on an F50 model with a Low Function
Terminal (LFT), the system hangs with an LED C31.
The workaround consists of attaching a tty with the LFT during boot.
Complete the following steps.
- After the keyboard icon appears, press F1 on the native keyboard
or 1 on the tty keyboard. This will present the System Management
Services (SMS) interface.
- Select Multiboot from the SMS menu.
- Select Install from the Multiboot menu.
- Select the CD-ROM drive.
- From the Installation and Maintenance menu select the following
in sequence: maintenance mode, restore mksysb, tape drive, and continue.
The AIX Version 4.1.x fix is to install APAR IX68565.
The AIX Version 4.2.x fix is to install APAR IX68882.
