Re: new hardware delivery kit

The link from
seems to be a loser, too.

Perhaps they've decided that there really is
no new hardware now.

You might try feedback to the Webmaster.

Re: new hardware delivery kit

Which patch kit do you need?
I have NHD3 and I can put it on our ftp server.

without having to update your operating system. The New Hardware Delivery
CD-ROM provides only those modules necessary to support the new hardware,
thereby causing minimal incremental change to your operating system


This version of the New Hardware Delivery CDROM contains support for
the following hardware:

3X-DE600-AA: Single-port 10/100 UTP Ethernet Adapter
3X-DE602-AA: Dual-port 10/100 UTP Ethernet Adapter

worldwide names to device target identifiers (IDs) for
the emx device driver

Re: new hardware delivery kit

Hi Khairy,

I would have thought that you should be OK just installing the latest patch kit...

I've just done a fresh install of 4.0F and that did include the emx stuff...

# sizer -v
Digital UNIX V4.0F (Rev. 1229); Wed Apr 2 03:29:14 BST 2008

# dupatch -track -type kit

* Previous session logs saved in session.log.[1-25]

- This dupatch session is logged in /var/adm/patch/log/session.log

Gathering details of relevant patches, this may take a bit of time

Patches installed on the system came from following patch kits:

- DUV40FB22AS0008-20030730 OSF440


When a patch kit is listed, it does not necessarily mean
all patches on that kit are installed on your system.

# man emx

emx(7) emx(7)


emx - Device Driver for the Emulex Fibre Channel Host Adapter


bus emx0 at pci? controller scsiX at emx0
bus emx1 at pci? controller scsiY at emx1

Hope this helps,

Re: new hardware delivery kit

I put it on my VMS ftp server.
You must use command prompt to log on (it is hidden from browser).
1. ftp csalf.cs.hr
2. login as anonymous
3. ftp> cd nhd
4. ftp> get nhd3.iso

Hope it would help.

Re: new hardware delivery kit


You'll also find it on HP's Australian FTP site, which fortunately doesn't appear to have been archived yet !


There's also a emx_bin_v122.tar file on that site which might be of interest...
