it is common situation to encounter this error at the initial cms setup stage. it is not documented anywhere and it seems that all cms systems starting at least with r11 come with this error. here's the fix: 1. log in to cms as root 2. open /etc/system file for editing using your favourite vi editor :) 3. find the line containing words "set md:mirrored_root_flag=1", it's the last line in file 4. remove star in the beginning of this line 5. save file 6. reboot cms machine
after that, you can set up cms with cmssvc. if you don't know how to operate vi, here's the procedure: 1. issue "vi /etc/system" command. vi should open the file and say something like that in the last line on display: "/etc/system" 107 lines, 2914 characters 2. use ":" command to place cursor on the last line of the file, in that case it would be ":107<ENTER>" 3. use "x" command to erase unneeded characters before "set md:mirrored_root_flag=1". do not press "enter" after "x" 4. use ":wq<ENTER>" command to save file and quit vi note that <ENTER> means pressing "enter" key not keying in characters.
