11iv3 on rp5470

I know that 11iv3 is not supported officially on rp5470, but is it possible to install and run it on this class of server? or will it not boot?

Re: 11iv3 on rp5470

I haven't tried it.

Reading between the lines of the HP-UX
server support matrix doc...

It looks like (with one exception), no
PA-RISC version prior to PA-8700 can
run 11.31 (the one exception is
A5206A, a SuperDome cell based on PA-8600).

But...the matrix also indicates that some
PA-8700 based systems can run 11.31
(i.e., rp7405, rp7410, rp8400), and
that other rp-8700 systems are listed as "no". (I've verified that an rp2470 cannot). The matrix also indicates that some rp5470's are PA-8600 based, and some are PA-8700 based.

The thread at http://forums11.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=1116044
would imply "no".

Have you tried it?

no, I haven't tried it yet, but I will as I got PA-8700 based rp5470. I just thought someone before me already tried it and can share his experience.

BTW, when I tried to install it on my rp2470,
the install hung fairly early in the process
(can't recall exactly what step).

Hi Andy,

as reported in some other threads this won't work because the chipsets of these machines is not supported - no "drivers" included.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: "drivers not included".

The annoying thing, of course, is that the
drivers WERE THERE and were removed,
most likely at marketing's instigation again.
