Use of other cables can result in significant problems with system operation. The NSE SCSI definition limits the total cable length of NSE SCSI cables to 6 meters (19.6 feet).

    Ultra, wide-SE SCSI Narrow-SE SCSI Bus Configuration Constraints For the narrow-SE SCSI bus, HP-UX supports only one of each type of removable disk drive and two of the same type tape devices per system. Table 19 shows configuration constraints for each NSE SCSI device type. If the system has an internal CD-ROM drive, tape drive or hard disks con- nected to the SE SCSI bus, you must count them as SE SCSI devices.

    Boot Console Interface Features There are times when you want to interact directly with the hardware of your workstation before it boots the operating system. Your workstation provides a menu-driven boot console interface that allows you to perform special tasks, display information, and set certain system parameters, even if the operating system is unavailable.

    NOTICES: There is no need to manually shut down the HP-UX operating system on your workstation before powering it off. When you turn off the power switch, your workstation automatically shuts down the operating system before terminating the power.

  • Page 215: Booting Your Workstation

    Booting Your Workstation Usually, you start your workstation by turning it on and waiting for HP-UX to boot automatically. However, you may not always want the usual sequence to occur. For example, you may want to start your workstation from an operating sys- tem that is stored on a device that is different from your usual boot device.
