Not sure if this is much of a secret, but it was elusive to the instructor of my HP-UX training class last spring.
On Integrity servers, you can boot via ignite to a server on a different subnet.
This also doesn’t need dhcp, which is handy.
The server is 10.10.10.22 and client is 10.10.20.20
from EFI Shell
Shell> dbprofile -dn ignite -sip 10.10.10.22 -cip 10.10.20.20 -gip 10.10.20.1 -m 255.255.255.0 -b “/opt/ignite/boot/nbp.efi”
Shell> lanboot select -dn ignite
