32 bit HP-Unix OS over Itanium Machine

Hi friends and Seniors,

I have one question that is very silly but can anyone please answer me that "would Itanium architecture's rx6600 support 32 bit Hp-Unix OS or not"?

Thanks

Itanium servers only run hp-ux 11.23 and 11.31 which do not come in 32 bit versions.

You can run 32 bit IPF and PA applications on Integrity. Why would you want to run a 32 bit OS?

Hi TTr,

Yes you are absolutely right but as we know that ITANIUM supports LINUX, Windows along with HP-UNIX then please tell me is it possible that it can support any of the above mentioned OS of 32bit.

Thanks,

No, your Linux, Windows, OpenVMS and HP-UX must all be 64 bit.

Hi Dennis,

--> You can run 32 bit IPF and PA applications on Integrity. Why would you want to run a 32 bit OS?

Answer is one of our application is running over PA-RISC server is of 32-bit support and we are now planning to migrate this application over itanium server that's why.

But Plz tell me how we can run 32bit Application of PA to ITANIUM because somewhere i have read that it can be done with the help of "arena software" that can interpretes accordingly but not very much sure.Can u please explain it??

Hi Dennis,

Now one thing is clear to me that OS should be of 64bit.

Your PA server is likely running a 64 bit OS, unless it is obsolete. And 64 bit HP-UX OS will run 32 or 64 bit applications.

>how we can run 32bit application of PA to Integrity ... Can you please explain it?

Yes, Integrity has Aries to run PA executables. See:

The software is called 'Aries' and comes with Itanium :
