How to install a .sd.bz file on an HP UX 10.20 9000/800 server

New to HP UX and not sure how the installation process works for this type of file.  I need to add openssl and openssh to one of the servers that is running HP UX 10.20.  I am tasked to get this server operating.

Thanks;

Where did you get it from?

Maybe it is part of a depot, so you cannot install it, you need a complete depot.


Hope this helps!

A '.bz' file is typically a 'bzip' file.  First you need bunzip to uncompress the file.

  

You might be able uncompress it on your PC with something like 7zip, which should yield a .sd file. 

 

You can then transfer that file to your HP-UX server and install with 'swinstall'.

   Typically, a file compressed using "bzip2" (the current program)
would be named ".bz2", not plain ".bz".  I'd worry about how old this
",bz" file might be.  I have no idea whether a modern "bzip2" program
can deal with a file which was compressed using an old "bzip" program.

      https://sourceware.org/bzip2/

   "bunzip" is (or should be) equivalent to "bzip2 -d", so an actual
"bunzip" executable is not required, only "bzip2".

   "bzip2" (and perhaps plain-old (old) "bzip") should be available on
many operating systems, including HP-UX (many versions).  It comes with
the OS on a Mac:

      mba$ type bzip2
      bzip2 is /usr/bin/bzip2

   Or even what is its actual (whole) name?
