Hi Sadat,

No it is not possible to install a 32bit OS on a Itanium based server.

http://h20338.www2.hp.com/hpux11i/downloads/public_hp-ux_systems_support.pdf

If you look at above mentioned support guide you will find that all Itanium based systems are supported for 11.iv2 (11.23) and 11iv3 (11.31). Both v2 and v3 are per definition 64bit OS installations.

Re: Can we install 32-bit HPUX OS on Itanium based hardware.

For Itanium hardware, only HP-UX 11.23 or newer is supported.
Both 11.23 and the currently latest 11.31 are only available in a 64-bit version.

However, a 64-bit HP-UX can run 32-bit *applications* with no problems.

Please see this thread:

... and this page on the Installation and Update Guide for HP-UX 11.23, listing the supported hardware:

http://docs.hp.com/en/5991-5526/ch02s03.html

If you're asking "does it work even if it isn't supported?" the answer is still "no". It does not work at all.

Why would you want that? All HP-UX versions now only come in 64 bit. There are very few PA systems (11.11 only) that only support 32 bit.

32 bit apps work fine on PA and Integrity.
