Stand-alone start-up of HP-UX11i

I have a HP-UX11i machine on the network and that works fine.
But, now i want to start this machine without network connection?
How must i do this?
Because, if i pull out the network cable it will not boot.

We need to know why you would want to start without network:
New configuration as stand alone?
Without knowing what you are trying to do it will be difficult to give a satisfying answer...

we would like to try our software (own program) in stand-alone.
In the past with HP-UX 10, if we changed something in the etc/rc.config.d on the nis and it worked.
This we did now also but now we don't get the login screen. From the moment we put in the network cable again it goes further.

What do you have in /etc/hosts? and in /etc/nsswitch.conf?
In order to work without NIS you would have to have is IP and name in /etc/hosts and in /etc/nsswitch.conf:
something like:
passwd: files
group: files
hosts: files [NOTFOUND=continue UNAVAIL=continue] dns
services: files
networks: files
protocols: files

instead of:
hosts: nis [NOTFOUND=return] files

Then in /etc/inittab set the default level at 2

And give it a try...

Good luck

Boot the system into single user mode.

When the system is up, bring your network interface down and unplumb it.
