Need Help for configuring Boot from San

Hi all,
I am trying to configure my HPUX host 11.31 IA64 to boot from a LUN for EMC clariion CX3-80 (Flaire PNR 26).
I am following the below mentioned steps..

vi /tmp/idf
3
EFI 500MB
HPUX 100%
HPSP 400MB

idisk -f /tmp/idf -w /dev/rdisk/diskxxx
insf -e

pvcreate -B /dev/rdsik/diskxxx_p2
mkdir /dev/vgboot
mknod /dev/vgboot/group c 64 0x020000
vgcreate /dev/vgboot /dev/disk/diskxxx_p2
mkboot -e -l /dev/rdisk/diskxxx
mkboot -a "hpux" /dev/rdisk/diskxxx

lvcreate -L 2000 -n altstand -r n -s y -C y /dev/vgboot
lvcreate -L 2500 -n altswap -r n -s y -C y /dev/vgboot
lvcreate -L 2000 -n altroot -r n -s y -C y /dev/vgboot
lvcreate -L 4500 -n altusr -r n -s y -C n /dev/vgboot
lvcreate -L 5500 -n altopt -r n -s y -C n /dev/vgboot
lvcreate -L 1000 -n alttmp -r n -s y -C n /dev/vgboot
lvcreate -L 4000 -n altvar -r n -s y -C n /dev/vgboot

newfs -F hfs /dev/vgboot/raltstand
newfs -F vxfs /dev/vgboot/raltroot
newfs -F vxfs /dev/vgboot/raltvar
newfs -F vxfs /dev/vgboot/raltusr
newfs -F vxfs /dev/vgboot/ralttmp
newfs -F vxfs /dev/vgboot/raltopt


mkdir /altroot
mkdir /altstand
mkdir /altopt
mkdir /altvar
mkdir /alttmp
mkdir /altusr


lvlnboot -b /dev/vgboot/altstand /dev/vgboot
lvlnboot -r /dev/vgboot/altroot /dev/vgboot
lvlnboot -s /dev/vgboot/altswap /dev/vgboot
lvlnboot -d /dev/vgboot/altswap /dev/vgboot
lvlnboot -v
Output-->


mount /dev/vgboot/altstand /altstand
mount /dev/vgboot/altroot /altroot
mount /dev/vgboot/altvar /altvar
mount /dev/vgboot/altusr /altusr
mount /dev/vgboot/altopt /altopt
mount /dev/vgboot/alttmp /alttmp


echo Now copying / to /altroot... Please wait...

echo Now copying /stand to /altstand... Please wait...

cd /usr
find . -xdev | cpio -pdmux /altusr
echo Now copying /opt to /altopt... Please wait...
cd /opt
find . -xdev | cpio -pdmux /altopt

Changing /stand/bootconf to
1 /dev/disk/diskxxx_p2

Then I change the setboot priority to boot from the hardware path of diskxxx.


But while booting up, my system crashes with the following error message:

I have tried a similar approach on 11.23 PA-RISC machines and it goes through fine.

Please help me solve the problem.

Thanks
