HP-UX 11i v3 download question

Anyone knows where to download HP-UX 11i v3 OE?  I have a valid support contract.  Thx in advance.

Login ("sign in") to HP Support Center:


Then you can select Download options -> Software updates and licensing.


If you are using this for the first time, have your support contract at hand: the page will request some information from the contract first.


If the contract has already been registered to your user profile, select the appropriate Support Agreement ID and it will give you a list of all the software covered by that Support Agreement. If the appropriate HP-UX 11i v3 OE is covered, you can select it. The next page will allow you to download the software you selected, or (in the case of OE media) request that HP send you a physical installation media.


Note: when I downloaded the 11i v3 installation media, it came as a single .iso image that was bigger than the capacity of a regular DVD-R. I had to find a Dual-Layer DVD burner in order to create a useful installation media.

You can download a copy from :

or get into patch and software download from  :


Or it will be easier to contact your Account service manager to get a optical Drive.
