Re: true64 installation date

Hmm, why would yo want to know that?
Anyway, I don't think there is a specific command for that.

I woudl look at the date&time for /vmunix as well as : /sys/conf/SYSTEM_NAME

hth,
Hein.

You will see something like:

Re: true64 installation date

Hi Hein,

I need that information since we have ~1000 servers in an development environment with all platforms and os versions. since the servers are reused and reinstallated many times we need that info for statistics purpose.

I could not get the info from the solution you gave me .
thanks anyway .

regds,

Re: true64 installation date

Look at the timestamps on /cluster/member or other /cluster/member CDSLs for the date. These links are created at the time of system installation and are normally not changed by any system activity after that.

If you have a lot of Tru64 UNIX systems, then a Perl script that dumps the ctime or mtime value for the link would be worth the investment in time for you to create. It shouldn't take more than 2 or three lines of Perl to dump the date.
