4k sector support for HP-UX

Does anyone know if/when HP-UX introduced support for 4k sectors? I am looking for Documentation from HP that shows when this support started.

Re: 4k sector support for HP-UX

Thanks for the reply.  But, sector size and block size while related are not the same concept.  This seems to be referring to block size.

Re: 4k sector support for HP-UX

Last update I saw (which was March 2016), HP-UX did not support 4k sector sizes.  There were a couple of enablement patches released to prepare for 4k sector support, but there are many subsystems that would need updates to fully support this feature.

I have not seen any updates in the past few versions of the 11i v3 releases notes about adding 4k support, so my assumption is it is still not a supported feature.
