Re: new version of hpux

Run "swlist" and search for "operating environment" and you will see the installed version.

Example:

HPUX11i-OE-MC                        B.11.31.1003 HP-UX Mission Critical Operating Environment

 

or

 

HPUX11i-DC-OE                         B.11.31.1303   HP-UX Data Center Operating Environment

 



In this example "1303" means march 2013, there will be a march 2014 release soon (1403).

BTW, the servers firmware is very old too.

It is 4.03, version 4.32 is available!


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: new version of hpux

This is september 2008.

Wait for the march 2014 release, use the installer dvd and run update-ux utility.

Also update the firmware!

Hope this helps!

Re: new version of hpux

Dear Torsten,

 

Thanks for advice

my another query is that this is my production Servers and Cluster enviornment.

 

An Oracle 11g installed on the server.

 

 

If i update the OS.

 

If I install this, then no other services will be affected, as this is my production server.

 

thanks

aamir

Re: new version of hpux

Do this first on your test environment and test if it works.

Hope this helps!

Re: new version of hpux

HP comes out with updates to HP-UX 11.31 once a year. 

 

The latest update is, I believe, from March 2013.  There should be another update due this month, March 2014.

 

You can find some information here:  www.hp.com/go/hpux
