Subject: How to find out HP-UX Version Information

I am trying to install patches on Tru64 Version 5.1 Rev 2650 however I have patches for 5.1B2 and 5.1B3 I want to know how to find this out. Sizer does not give me anything beyond Tru64 Version 5.1 Rev 2650.

Please help!!

Re: Subject: How to find out HP-UX Version Information

sizer will give you the version, versions cluld be:

5.1
5.1A
5.1B

5.1B-2 or 5.1B-3 depends of the patch kit level that you have installed. If you have PK5 installed then you are in 5.1B-3.

In your case, you must find patches for 5.1.

If you are getting a output like this:
# sizer -v
Compaq Tru64 UNIX V5.1B (Rev. 2650)

Then, you are running the V5.1B version of the OS.

Also,
5.1B2 = 5.1B with Patch Kit version 4
5.1B3 = 5.1B with Patch Kit version 5 (this is the latest one as of today).

The hyphenated versions (like V5.1B-3) appear
to be strictly marketing names, and I've not
seen a simple way to get that string from the
OS itself.

With the current intensity of Tru64
development, I'd be a little amazed if the
real version string ever rises above "V5.1B".
I've been amazed before, of course, but for a
clue, count the Tru64 systems at:

Around here:

urtx# sizer -v
Compaq Tru64 UNIX V5.1B (Rev. 2650); Sat Jan 28 11:47:04 CST 2006

which says "V5.1B", not "5.1". (And nowhere
does it say "HP-UX".) Actual program output,
accurately quoted, can help get you better
answers, too.
