OpenVMS on HP Integrity servers

You can manage HP Integrity server devices by using the OpenVMS Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI) utilities.

Managing HP Integrity server devices by using the OpenVMS EFI

You can use the following OpenVMS EFI utilities to manage devices for an Integrity server from the EFI console; for example, if you are using SAN boot.

The VMS_SHOW EFI utility shows all bootable devices that are mapped by the EFI console, and their corresponding OpenVMS device names. In the following sample output, the first line shows the OpenVMS device name and more device information. If the device is a disk, this line includes vendor identification and product identification. If the device is a network device, this line includes a MAC address. The second line shows the file system designation (fsx) and its corresponding EFI device path.
VMS: DQA0 IDE Drive 
EFI: fs0: Acpi(HWP0002,0)/Pci(2|0)/Ata(Primary,Master)  

VMS: EIA0 00-30-6E-F3-F2-52 
EFI: Acpi(HWP0002,0)/Pci(3|0)/Mac(00306EF3F252)

If specified, the utility matches the specified OpenVMS device name to the EFI console mapping. For multipath Fibre Channel devices, the utility shows all paths that are associated with the specified OpenVMS device name and several more options:
  • The debug_dev option shows the selected OpenVMS debug device.
  • The dump_dev option shows the selected OpenVMS dump device for the dump-off-system-disk (DOSD) function.
  • The -fs option shows the names of OpenVMS devices that have only the system disk.
The VMS_BCFG EFI utility adds an entry to the EFI Boot Manager by using a specified OpenVMS device name. The following sample output from the utility shows a boot option list entry:
fs3:\efi\vms> VMS_BCFG.EFI boot show 
The boot option list is: 
01. VenHw(D65A6B8C-71E5-4DF0-A909-F0D2992B5AA9) "EFI Shell [Built-in]"
