Sorry, HP-UX 11.31 only runs on Itanium (and old PA-RISC) CPUs.

 

There is no version of HP-UX for x86 processor architecture, so AMD Opterons and Intel Xeons cannot run HP-UX.

 

If you want to run HP-UX, you'll need something like a BL870c i4 (4 CPUs * 8 cores/cpu * 2 for hyperthreading = 64 "cores", with a maximum memory capacity of 768 GB).

Remember, the BL860c i2 and i4 can only run 11.31, but not 11.23.

 

It's time to upgrade from 11.23 to 11.31 anyway ...


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Answer is no. Unix OS can not be installed. Other comparable hardware choices are BL860
