With no background information this is impossible to guess. Is this a cold build, a newly upgraded system, or a reliable system which failed?

The error messages suggest a blank, corrupt or missing boot device.
Suggest you contact your support agency and get a complete hardware map drawn highlighting the primary boot device and any mirrors of that device. Check that the boot parameters point to a valid working device and consider changing the boot parameters to point to a known good device.

Good time to review your backups.

It's a fresh install of hp-ux11iv3 we did kernel tunning to it for oracle RAC we did many successful reboots after tunning

Unfortunately I have no experience of v3...
But based on old issues I had to deal with, two things come to mind:
a new kernel (but too big to boot...)
someone got the disks puzzled (conflicting, you know like 2 devices with same SCSI ID...)

My 2 cents

Good luck...
I will keep you informed if I can think of anything else, but I am in a big porting phase and should be in production next week so have not much time to spare...

Looks like the kernel registry is corrupt. Oracle RAC is known to do that.

The following might help you: IT Resource Center forums - HP-UX 11.23 not booting

Possibly a mirror disk is missing

Using the EFI shell, what is the output from "search all" and "map -r"?
