Re: Version Upgrade

Hi,

it always depends on the model of the system, you can see it by model.
11.23 can be upgraded to 11.31 on the following Itanium machines (let me say on all of Itanium machines):

Re: Version Upgrade

Hi:

To install the 'msv2v3check' use 'swinstall' like:

# swinstall -s /tmp/MSV2V3Check_B.11.23.0907_HP-UX_B.11.23_IA_PA.depot \*

Manpages come with the utility and will be installed too.

Regards!
