OS version

Hello,

 

How can I detect the OS version on HP-UX B.11.11 ?

Re: OS version

If you know that the version is B.11.11, you already know the version!

 

If you want to know the silly marketing names, then:

  • B.11.11 = 11iv1 (originally just "11i")
  • B.11.23 = 11iv2
  • B.11.31 = 11iv3

 

The command "uname -r" will display the OS version.

 

"swlist -l bundle HPUX11i-OE" will display the OE version number, whose last digits indicate release year and month.

For example:

 # swlist -l bundle HPUX11i-OE
# Initializing...
# Contacting target "xx"...
#
# Target:  xx:/
#

  HPUX11i-OE    B.11.11.0406   HP-UX 11i Operating Environment Component 

 This would be a HP-UX 11i v1 system, using a June 2004 release (.0406).

Hello Matti,

 

Thank you for your reply.

 

I tried the command on 2 differents machines but I received error messages.

 

# swlist -l bundle HPUX11i-OE
# Initializing...
# Contacting target "xx"...
#
# ERROR: Software "HPUXi-OE" was not found on host :xx:/".
#

 

This is the exact data I need.

Actually, the issue is that I found differences between the shells that running on 2 machines.

That cause some problem, untill I copied the updated shells from the updated machine.

The porpose is to figure out if this was the problem.

Looks like a typo, you forgot "11".


Hope this helps!

># swlist -l bundle | grep HPUX11i

 

You can also use swlist's pattern matching:

swlist -l bundle "*HPUX11i*"
