VIOS LPAR Error 0518

I am trying to install AIX 5.3 on one of the LPARs through VIOS but I get this error 0518

Doing a little research on google, i got these results

518 Remote mount of the root and /usr filesystems failed during network
boot.

Possibilities:
1. Is this related to version of AIX 5.3 which is not recognised by VIOS ?

2. Is it related to virtual ethernet adapter ?

What are you trying to boot from? The DVD installation media or a virtual CD from the VIO server?

I am trying to boot from the physical optical media -- that is -- i have assigned the optical media CD/DVD to the LPAR Partition and it boots from the CD-ROM expect that it gets stuck at the led 0518 which is something very strange !

In the Installation and Maintenance menu, obviously you can see the DVD drive, but do you see the disks? Maybe you should check your disk assignments on the VIO servers; make sure your slot numbers line up and make sure you assigned the disks to the right vhost number.

well, i can see the virtual disk, and if i attach a bootable disk it will boot from it.

However, the problem is with installation of AIX 5.3 on virtual disk.

I have not tried assigning a physical disk and then trying it but it should work with virtual disk ?

My guess is that AIX 5.3 DVD image does not support the system you are trying to install AIX 5.3 on. AIX 5.3 can be installed on most Power7, and certainly Power6, Power5, and Power4, etc..

If you have a nim server I would suggest creating nim installation resources from the DVD - first the LPP and then update to latest service pack, and then create the SPOT.

If you do not have a nim server I recommend making one. There is an example on unix.com and one I wrote and published elsewhere (I have been asked not to put up links to my old articles so you will have to search for it IF you want to compare.) Anyway, once you have the nim server: use recommendation above.

I will try and update here so everyone can benefit. Thanks.

By the way, I am using AIX 5.3 CDROM. I will create NIM on VIOS itself and from there let us try and see what happens.
