Install HP-UX 11i version 2 on 9000/800/r380

Hi,

I'm trying to install HP-UX 11i version 2 on our server (model 9000/800/r380). It has currently got 11.00 (32-bit) installed.

I am booting from the CD, the boot fails with the following message:
disk(8/16/5.2.0.0.0.0.0;0):INSTALL: cannot open, or not executable Exec failed: No such file or directory.

I have tried this with two different CD's and I am getting the same error on both.

Anyone got any ideas as to what the problem could be?


Thanks,

Ronald.

Ron,

That is true, as R380 was discontinued in Aug 2001, therefore before 11i v2 came out.

The list of non supported platforms for 11i v2 is in the 11i v2 Installing and Updatig guide at:
http://docs.hp.com/en/5990-8144/ch02s04.html

It says, non supported: all R-class

Regards,

Marie.

Hi Ronald,

Check this url below :

http://www.hp.com/products1/unix/operating/public_hp-ux_systems_support.pdf

From this url, the last OS version for R380 is HP-UX 10.20 and obsoleted on 30 June 2006.

So there's no way for this machine to get HP-UX version 11.X.

Hope this information can help you.

Cheers,
AW
