updating the s/w from the ignite server on different revisions of HP-UX

Hi I have a HP-UX 11 ignite backup server which backs up all my 11 servers to its disks via a network (make_net_recovery).

I would also like to backup a couple of my 10.20 servers but am a little concerned when the server uses /opt/igntie/lbin/pkg_rec_depot so that it can recover the machine over the network.

Will the 11 server and the 10.20 client be compatible?

Can i use the 11 server to backup the 10.20 clients and will it restore if needed without changing the configuration of the s/w on the 10.20 machines?

Im pretty confident all this will work, just thought i'd ask in case of any gotcha's.

cheers,

mark.

This depends on the version of ignite you have installed. If you go to http://software.hp.com/products/IUX

you can see the supported client versions for each ignite version:

It works for me (tm)

Re: updating the s/w from the ignite server on different revisions of HP-UX

all my systems have the following:

B5725AA B.3.5.62 HP-UX Installation Utilities (Ignite-UX)

Meaning I cant without installing an updated version of ignite!

Thanks for all your help!

I will d/load and install a later version.
Any recommended versions?

I only use Ignite servers to backup about 10 UX boxes 2 of which run 10.20, the rest 11.00 i dont use this product to build new systems and load automatically.

Should I be going for B.4.1?
