Platform Kits

Maybe you can help!

I don't see any documentation for platform kits, secure path, hba's that specifically say HPUX on itanium. Can i assume thoughout the configuration process that if HPUX is supported, it applies to both PA risc and Itanuim?

I need to configure a two node itanium cluster for Oracle 9i with the following specs:

Itanium CPU's
2 way processor capable of 8-way
8 gigs of memory per node
Dual 1000baseT networks
High-speed cluster interconnect
Latest Version of HPUX
MC Service Guard
Oracle RAC9i
Dual 2gb Fiber hba's

The two boxes will be clustered and connected to an EVA3000 w/~2TB useable
Business Copy will be listed as an option.

Thanks for your help! CLint

Re: Platform Kits


just some info:

until to HP-UX 11.11 (HP-UX 11i v1) is on PA-RISC
HP-UX 11.22 (HP-UX 11i v2) and HP-UX 11.23 (HP-UX 11i v3) are on Itanium.

Also for server models that support HP-UX 11.00 and HP-UX 11.11:

Re: Platform Kits

Do not assume Itanium support == PA-RISC
support! Ask all your vendors if they
support Itanium HP-UX machines.

A slight clarification:

11.20 is HP-UX 11i v1.5
11.22 is HP-UX 11i v1.6
11.23 is HP-UX 11i v2.0
There is no 11i v3.0 yet. It appears to
be scheduled for late 2005.

11.2x is currently for Itanium only, though
11.23 on PA-RISC seems to be on tap for
late 2004.
