Oracle 9i installation how do I know if my server is HP_IA64 or hp-ux PA-RISC (64-bit) system

I am installing Oracle 9i and I have 2 CDs for 9.2.0.4 patch, one is for hardware HP_IA64 and the other is for HP-UX PA-RISC (64-bit). How do I know which applies to me?

When I do uname -a I get the following answer:HP-UX njes1u87 B.11.11 U 9000/800 2820658193 unlimited-user license

Pleasre reply to Juan-Carlos.Garcia@cic.gc.ca

You can goto SAM-->Performance Monitors -->System Properties -->Processor.

This screen will give you a very detailed information.

3.2 Changes to Machine Identification
For HP-UX 11i Version 1.5 (B.11.20), the uname(1) and uname(2) interfaces are replaced by new confstr(3C) interfaces as a means to obtain a unique machine identification number. The previous uname(1) and uname(2) interfaces are supported in HP-UX 11i Version 1.5 (B.11.20), with limitations, and will be obsoleted in a future release.

The model string returned by the uname(1), uname(2), getconf(1), confstr(3C), and model(1) interfaces on HP's Itanium-based platforms will not begin with 9000/, as has been the case on previous PA based HP-UX systems. Instead, the model string is, or begins with, ia64.

The following command and function return the string ia64 on all IPF platforms.

uname -m

machine field of the utsname structure returned by uname(2)


The model command, per its existing definition, returns the same output as uname -m, possibly with additional information. If available, the additional information can be used to distinguish between different systems. The command getconf MACHINE_MODEL and the library call confstr(_CS_MACHINE_MODEL,...) will return the same output as the model command.
