Tru64 Upgrade Path

Hello,

I have a couple 5.1 PK3 systems that I would like to bring up to 5.1B PK5 and I was wondering the upgrade path / procedure... can I go right to 5.1B by doing an upgrade installation from the CD? Or do I need to hit 5.1A along the way? I couldn't find anything official on hp's site.

TIA,
Chris

Re: Tru64 Upgrade Path

Check the installation guide, according to this, you must upgrade from 5.1 to 5.1A and then to 5.1B

If they are clustered systems, you must go to 5.1A first and then to 5.1B. However, for a standalone system, you can go directly from 5.1 to 5.1B.

Did this info come from the install guide for 5.1B or another source?

Thanks

For a standalone system, see the V5.1B Installation Guide at http://h30097.www3.hp.com/docs/base_doc/DOCUMENTATION/V51B_HTML/ARH8SETE/TITLE.HTM. Section 2.3 states:

"The Update Installation process updates your operating system from Version 5.1 or Version 5.1A to Version 5.1B."

For a TruCluster, see the TruCluster V5.1B Installation manual at http://h30097.www3.hp.com/docs/base_doc/DOCUMENTATION/V51B_HTML/ARHGXETE/TITLE.HTM. Table 1-1 states that the upgrade path from V5.1 to V5.1B is a rolling upgrade from V5.1 to V5.1A, followed by another rolling upgrade from V5.1A to V5.1B.

Hope this helps,
Martin
