What is a HP-UX S700 IA syatem?

Hi All

Does anyone know what is a HP-UX S700 IA system.
and how to check whether the machine you are working on is similar.
I have never seer and/heard this model number before.
model command on IA machine show something like "ia64 hp server rx1620" and on PA it shows "9000/800/rp3410" but I have never seen "S700" or "S800"

Thanks
Sri

Re: What is a HP-UX S700 IA syatem?

S700 and S800 are somewhat old designations for HP PA-RISC workstations and servers, respectively.

For HP-UX 10.20 and older there were different releases of HP-UX depending on your platform, S700 (Workstations) or S800 (Server).

You will still see the S700/S800 designation on a lot of patches, but for HP-UX 11.0 and newer the designation is relatively meaningless.

On some machines, if you do a 'model' command you could still see something like "9000/800/rp5470" or "9000/700/C3000".

No - this has no meaning for Integrity servers.

*All* current PA-RISC servers would fall under the classification S800 if it were still of any significance... really you shouldn't worry about this at all unless you have some old HP-UX workstations kicking around.

Re: What is a HP-UX S700 IA syatem?

hi,

while 700 and 800's are the older naming convention, some people still regard workstations as 700 series and servers as 800 series.

these came from the 712/715/725 names and 827/847 type names of systems.

can itanium be 700's, well not really but hp did do an itanium workstation which ran hpux

The ZX2000 and ZX6000

Re: What is a HP-UX S700 IA syatem?

I have found one such machine in our lab,
faced some issue in booting it, pulling out and re-inserting the power cable did the magic. :-)
Now I have to look for 11.23 Sep04 Media and install it.

Thankyou all for your help

Are you sure that a zx2000 is supoprted for HP-UX 11.23 ? I don't think so ...

Re: What is a HP-UX S700 IA syatem?

The zx2000 is an itanium II based workstation (has nothing to do with 700 series).

http://www.openpa.net/systems/hp_zx2000.html

Even if it is no longer supported, it will run 11.23 (IMHO even a cuurent version).

Do you already know the software/firmware download site?

Hope this helps!

Re: What is a HP-UX S700 IA syatem?

I don't know how supported it is, but:

dyi # model
ia64 hp workstation zx2000

dyi # uname -a
HP-UX dyi B.11.31 U ia64 4235313755 unlimited-user license

> Are you sure that [...]

Installing 11.23 (and up) on a _PA-RISC_
workstation may be expected to fail.

Where that "S700" (nonsense) came from is a
mystery to me.

I actually had 11.23 running on a C3000 workstation, until the workstation died.

The one caveat was that it was very picky about the video card.

As I recall, I got it to run on my c3700,
too, unless no graphics counts as not
running. 11.31 refused to boot. I decided
to stick with 11.11.

There was one it liked?

Re: What is a HP-UX S700 IA syatem?

IMHO the main difference between such workstations and servers is the AGP based graphics card (e.g. rx2600 vs. zx6000), so I would assume that a PCI based graphics (e.g. the Radeon 7x00) would work.

I got 11.23 to work with CDE loading successfully with a Visualize fxe graphics card. IIRC that is a very low end graphics card.

I had a higher-end card working with 11.11, but 11.23 did not like it at all and I had to revert to the fxe card.
