Hi Dr's

When I allocating mksysb and spot to the client using smitty nim_bosinst, getting the error "unable to access the "/tftpboot/53_spot.chrp.64.ent" file".

Any one has faced this type of error.

 

Error:

========

Command: failed        stdout: yes           stderr: no

Before command completion, additional instructions may appear below.

0042-001 nim: processing error encountered on "master":

   0042-157 c_alloc_boot: unable to access the "/tftpboot/53_spot.chrp.64.ent" file

 

tftpboot:

=========

-rw-r--r--    1 root     system          512 Sep 14 08:08 53_spot.iplrecord.ent
[/tftpboot]#

 

Spot:

# lsnim -l 53_spot
53_spot:
   class         = resources
   type          = spot
   plat_defined  = chrp
   arch          = power

   prev_state    = verification is being performed
   location      = /export/spot/5.3/53_spot/usr
   version       = 5
   release       = 3
   mod           = 11
   oslevel_r     = 5300-11
   alloc_count   = 0
   server        = master
   if_supported  = chrp.mp ent
   Rstate_result = success
   mksysb_source = 53_mksysb

    Hi 


    Problably you're trying to create an spot/mksysb from AIX 5.3 in a AIX 6.1 NIM Server.

     

    Try to check your spot:  nim -Fo check 53_spot

    Try to change your kernel netboot ( NETBOOT_KERNEL ) from 64 to MP.

     

    Regards
