Shalom Erez,

HP seems to be changing the way they refer to the major releases. The Term 11i v3 Update 4 seems to be more like the way Red Hat refers to its releases.

About every six months, HP comes out with a bi-annual update. This includes a new set of Applications such as Glance etc, A new Core OS, and a QPK patch set.

If you have a Update 3 system, Which is September of 2008, applying the QPK is all you need to be at update 4. Re-installation is not needed.

The old timers like me use the date system, March 2009. I guess we'll have to adjust.

No SEP, we keep having this conversation - for 11.23 and 11.31, applying a QPK doesn *not* get you to the update level the QPK came with. You need to use update-ux from the install & update DVDs to get to the new level.

Re: HP-UX 11i v3 Update 4

Hi:

Torsten actually provided an empirical comparison of an 'update-ux' versus the application of standard patch bundles. The results underscore (of course) Duncan's statements. SEP, you are dead wrong.

Torsten's tests can be seen in this thread:

Re: HP-UX 11i v3 Update 4

Read the thread.

Never said the applications did not require update.

We are talking about the Core OS and the kernels and patching.

Do not believe I am dead wrong.

Re: HP-UX 11i v3 Update 4

SEP,

From Torsten's example:

Starting from a 0709 version of 11iv3...

After applying thye patch bundle only:

HPUX11i-OE-MC B.11.31.0709 HP-UX Mission Critical Operating Environment

After running update-ux:

HPUX11i-OE-MC B.11.31.0803 HP-UX Mission Critical Operating Environment
