My original query:
==>One of our users has an IPX SunOs 4.1.1, 32M ram, I internal Quantum 207M dr
==>two external 1G disks. He shutdown his machine gracefully, (sync, fasthalt
==>that kind of stuff, and then turned the power off.) Now it does not
==>boot. It gives a checksum error
==> Booting off sbus@..........sd@3,0
==> Checksum 68bb5692 != 5f583357
==> Trying to boot anyway.
==> Instruction access exception.
==>I booted it as a diskless client over the net and it booted just fine.
==>I'm lost. Any idead or suggestion will be appreciated and I will summarize.
The answer, as all the respondents pointed out was that somehome (I don't know
how) the file /boot was missing. An installboot fixed it.
The process I used:
Booted it as a diskless client.
# mount /dev/sd0a /mnt
# cd /mnt
# ftp'd /boot from another IPX to /mnt/boot
# cd /usr/kvm/mdec
# installboot -v /mnt/boot bootsd /dev/rsd0a
Booted it of its internal disk, and everything worked fine.
