How can I determine whether a disk is bootable?
To display the different bootstrings for a disk:
# lifls <rawdevice>
# lifls /dev/rdsk/c0t6d0
A bootable disk reports something like:
ISL AUTO HPUX PAD LABEL
While a non bootable disk reports:
lifls: Can't list /dev/rdsk/c0t6d0; not a LIF volume
To show the content of the bootentries:
# lifcp <blockdevice>:<STRING> -
# lifcp /dev/dsk/c0t6d0:AUTO -
For further information on LIF, refer to lif(4).
