What is UNIX 11i? and is it yet certified with Oracle 8i?

Our UNIX SysAdmin has informed me of a new HP-UX operating system version 11i. Is there a real version number like 11.11? When will it be certified with Oracle 8i products? Will it run on N, T and K class servers?

Hi there.
HP-UX 11i will be thrown on the market by midth of next year.
There is no Oracle certification for it yet.
It will be the OS for HP-UX going Internet with some fancies supported like Apache or so.
That is the latest news i heard from HP support in Germany.

Hi Pascale,

HP-UX11i is, for now, only available for SuperDome.
You'll have to wait for a few more months (approx mid-2001) to use it.
There's no Oracle certification yet, as far as I know.

Best regards,

Dan

I'd love to know where everyone gets there information from. If you want to know about 11i, why not speak to you friendly HP account manager?

11i is available. I have had 10 servers delivered in January, all with 11i pre-installed. Oracle (at least according to my DBAs) is also supported.

There HAS been a shipment hold recently, but that is due to be released on Friday 2nd Feb. However, as I say 11i is orderable now - not mid year.

My Account Support Engineer was on-site 2 weeks ago and we began talking about installing 11.11. He had it in his brief case. I believe it is General Availability now.

FYI,
I just saw this on the ITRC:

"The Software Application Release 12/00 and 11i Operating System Release are currently on hold due to order-creation problems. We're targeting a shipment date of January 29. We will notify you of any changes.

Hewlett-Packard regrets the delay in shipments and appreciates your patience."

Since we are past January 29 you would expect that 11.1 is available.
