If you have HP support on these systems, ask their help. They have a bootable CD which contains almost all latest firmwares.

You can also check the ITRC patch center and look for latest firmwares.

The latest firmware is actually 42.11. If you have a DAT drive, it's very easy to install firmware yourself.

Hi Robert,

The latest Dx70 firmware is 42.11 & is available here:

http://www2.itrc.hp.com/service/patch/patchDetail.do?BC=patch.breadcrumb.main|patch.breadcrumb.search|&patchid=PF_CULU4211&context=firmware:cpu

Defininitely recommended (probably required) if you're going to 11.11. Also remember that the D-class will only be able to run 32-bit 11.x

HTH,
Jeff

Actually, a D270, because it has a PA-8000 processor, can run either 32- or 64-bit HP-UX 11.x. However, if you need to you ANY EISA cards in your D-box then be aware that any EISA is ONLY supported at 32-bit.
If it ain't broke, I can fix that.
