Obtaining Patches

Hello All,

I have an old HP-UX C3000 workstation with 11.11 (11i v1) OS. I brought this from eBay a few years back. With HP changing their policy of getting patches for it, how do I go about obtaining patches (I am trying to install Oracle on the box). I am an individual and not affiliated to any company and use this as a learning tool. I sent an email to ITRC support and have not heard back from them if I could purchase a contract if it is reasonably priced. Thanks and looking forward to hear from you.

Srinivas.

>>purchase a contract if it is reasonably priced.

That probably entirely depends on your definition of reasonable priced. I suspect the cost of a software contract would be a few hundred dollars per year.

In my opinion HP really screwed up when they instituted this policy. I think all they are looking at is trying to get more $$$$ on the bottom line but did not consider the ill will of their user base.
