PDC for HPUX 11i on V Class

a customer has to install HPUX 11i on a V Class 2600. They want to know the PDC level that allow to install this OS release.
By the way, a command to send to customer in order to collect the PDC level?

Thanks a lot

Re: PDC for HPUX 11i on V Class

I think you are talking about PDC firmware revision. If online diagnostics is installed on the system (normally it's installed part of Support plus bundle), then:

# cstm
cstm> map

(now find out the device number for CPU and then issue the follwing command)

cstm> sel dev Device_number
cstm> info
cstm> il

This will list the PDC information. 'q' will exit from cstm.

thans for your reply.
You showed the stm use for collecting data.
A command line to redirect to cusotmer would be better

Hi Rob,

Here you go:

echo "selclass qualifier cpu;info;wait;infolog" | cstm | grep "Processor 0 HPMC" | awk '{print $7,$8,$9}' | mailx -s "V2600 PDC version" username@company.com

If you just go to the most current - 4.3.2 - you'll be good to go to 11.11. Note the dependencies & read/follow the install instruction carefully. Here's a link to it:
