Hi,

I believe, all the changes made between B.11.23.0409 to B.11.23.0712 should have included in december 2007 bundle hopefully. So no need to go for upgrade from base os.

Normally we will go for OS upgrade if it is one version to another version like v1 to v2 or v2 to v3.
Best wishes,

Ganesh.

Re: HPUX Upgrade

A patch bundle will patch what you have, but doesn't upgrade anything (at least in 11.23 and later).

Do an ignite backup and use update-ux from the latest install media.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: HPUX Upgrade

Hello,

you have to order the media from HP, which you will receive free of charge if you are under a support contract.

Regarding the upgrade procedure, you can check this thread:

Loading the latest QPK bundles alone, as stated above, does not update OS release.

Re: HPUX Upgrade

Dear All,

out of 4 replys all answers are god but quite confusing .As per Mr.Torsten ,it is not possible to upgrade the OS from 11.23.0609 to 11.23.0712 with applying only december 2007 path bundle.....only way to upgrade thorugh 11.23.0712 OS media only

but other few answers saying it is possible to upgrade with applying only dec2007 patch bundle to make 11.23.0609 t0 11.23.0712 ....


pls authenticate ??

Re: HPUX Upgrade

As said earlier, patching will only patch what you have.

See my example:

http://forums.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=1241964

This is 11.31, but applies to 11.23 too.
Previous releases up to 11.11 were different.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: HPUX Upgrade

hi

the steps are as follows:
1) swcopy the new media that you have got to a directory on the server and create a depot on that.

2) for 11.23 download the latest Update-UX bundle and swinstall that.

3) Use the update-ux command specifying the source as depot created in step1 or can start update-ux in the interactive mode

See thw following link for details

Re: HPUX Upgrade

This all depends on what you are looking for.

If you are looking to upgrade the installed version, what I call a Maintenance Release, of the OS then use update-ux using the new media.

(I would only recommend update-ux for sub release updates of OS, not major release updates, those I would cold install )

If you are looking to simply patch your system then simply swinstall the patch bundles.

Typical reason for updating the release is because some software requires the new dated version. e.g. IVM 3.5 requires the OS version to be 0712 or later.

The only way to achieve this is to use update-ux not swinstall.

The update-ux procedures are outlined in the install and admin guide.

Basically.
1) swinstall â s host:/depot Update-UX
2) /usr/sbin/update-ux â f /usr/lib/sw/update-ux.new â s host:/depot HPUX11i-OE-Ent

-modify the package name for your type of OS. e.g. HPUX11i-OE-Ent updates the enterprise version.
-Use of the /usr/lib/sw/update-ux file controls what software is installed. If you do not modify it then you may get more software than you wish.

Re: HPUX Upgrade

Shalom,

1) Just install the December 2007 bi-annual patch set, available at http://itrc.hp.com Installing the patch set leaves you at a state of binary equivalence with a cold install.

2) If you have a support contract for software you can get any release of HP-UX covered by that contract for free. December 2007 FOE from any other FOE. Upgrading to Mission Critical however requires upgrade of software support contract.

Re: HPUX Upgrade

@SEP:

1) is only valid up to 11.11 - not for 11.23 and 11.31

see my example!

Hope this helps!
