Re: HP9000 Model 825

The system you refer to is one of the oldest PA-RISC boxes that HP made, there was only one other before it. It was obsoleted many years ago, and does not run modern supported versions of HP-UX.
This would explain why you can find no information regarding the box.

Re: HP9000 Model 825

For history buffs, the 825 was a HP 9000, which was no longer sold by 1993. It initially ran HP-UX 7.0.

Re: HP9000 Model 825

According to this link, the 825S only runs HP-UX versions up to 10.10:

Re: HP9000 Model 825

here's the parts listing for the 825s:

as you can see, most of the parts are no longer available through HP. (probably not widely available used either)

Re: HP9000 Model 825

The 827 and 837 are later models of the series 9000 and they can run HP-UX 11.0. You may find a few docs on the hardware but unless you have some install tapes or CDROMs, the equipment won't be of much use.

Re: HP9000 Model 825

The Model 825 came out in 1987, 14 years ago. It had memory cards of 8 or 16MB. To run later versions (like 10.10) of HP-UX the 16MB had to be installed in the lowest memory slot if I remember correctly. I think the clock rate might have been 12.5MHz, but possibly it was 25MHz for the CPU and 12.5 for the rest of the system. Regardless, it is too old to be useful at this point. It was 32-bit pa-risc 1.0, not even 1.1. PA-RISC is now release 2.0 and 64 bit. Likely even the 32-bit release of HP-UX are based on pa-risc 1.1 and the load likely needs more RAM in the first block than what is in the 825.

Re: HP9000 Model 825

Ted,

Read the link I posted previously. It points to an hp doc that says that 10.10 is the last version of hpux that will support the 825.
