HP-UX 32bit & 64bit OS on Ianium Architechture

Hi All,

I have HP-UX (IA64) B.11.23 U ia64 1330726962 unlimited-user license on Itanium architechture machine.
Can I able to convert this 64bit OS in 32bit or else let me know is there any HP-UX 32bit OS on Itanium Architecture ?

Thanks in Advance.

Hi Varian,

If i'm not mistaken there is no 32 bits OS version for Itanium servers.

Best regards,

Itanium Processor Family (IPF) is Intel's next generation 64-bit architecture for microprocessors. It contains the 64-bit Instruction Set Architecture (ISA) developed jointly by Hewlett-Packard Company and Intel Corporation, as well as an IA-32 compatible component. (IA-32 is Intel's 32-bit architecture, also known as x86. IA-32 chips include the 486, Pentium®, and Pentium II®.)

The 64-bit ISA is based on the EPIC architecture technology, also jointly defined by HP and Intel. EPIC stands for Explicitly Parallel Instruction Computing.

IPF supports both 32-bit and 64-bit computing environments and is compatible with HP's existing PA (Precision Architecture Reduced Instruction Set Computing) architect

Re: HP-UX 32bit & 64bit OS on Ianium Architechture

Hi,
Thanks a lot for your reply.

Now my problem is that my development team requires "HP-UX 11iV2(IPF32)" OS & I have got OS version as mention below,
# uname -a
HP-UX SCORPIO B.11.23 U ia64 1330726962 unlimited-user license


How can I able to get required OS version.
Is there is any patches ?

Thanks

There is no possible way to run a 32bit OS kernel on Itanium. The requirement may be misleading as several applications state that they are IPF32 but I believe that this refers to the compilation of the program and not the kernel. All HP-UX 64bit kernels since 11.00 (Nov 97) run 32bit applications.
