Hi,

Use this command.

#getconf KERNEL_BITS

Best wishes,

Re: 32 or 64 bit HP-UX 11.11

# getconf KERNEL_BITS - existing kernel
and
# getconf HW_32_64_CAPABLE - whether the server is capable of running
# getconf HW_CPU_SUPP_BITS - for CPU

Hi Paul:

# getconf KERNEL_BITS

...will tell you the "bitness" of your current kernel, e.g. "64"

# getconf HW_CPU_SUPP_BITS

...will tell you the "bitness" your hardware will support, e.g. "32/64"

Regards!

Hi again,

You can also use this command..

#file /stand/vmunix

if PA-RISC 2.0 and above, then it is 64 bit
Best wishes,
