Phase 3 fails while performing alt disk installation.

Hi All,

I have been trying to perform alt disk installation for AIX 6.1 server.
Phas 3 fails and bosboot is not getting updated.
when i tried only phase 1 and phase 3 by skipping phase 2 for just testing purpose, then boot image was getting updated.

But when i try phase3 after phase 2, boot image is not getting updated.

Please help me out in this as this has been failed almost three times and i still dont want to give up.

Below is the error message i have been getting while doing phase 3.

## Phase 3 ###################
Verifying altinst_rootvg...
Modifying ODM on cloned disk.
Building boot image on cloned disk.

0301-150 bosboot: Invalid or no boot device specified!

Thanks in advance

Somehow this slipped by my radar. I transfer this thread to the AIX board, you probably get better help there.

the alt disk installation or migration needs a valid (last) bootdevice.
Please check that the command bootinfo -b returns a valid hdisk. Is the output empty, the alt disk command will fail.

You can also run the command with the "-D" flag for debug information and check at which point the alt disk install script aborts.
