Re: General

"machinfo" does not work on PA.

Just run "uname -m". Itanium should say
"ia64".

Re: General

> B.11.11

This is also a giveaway. IA systems do not run 11.11.

Re: General

Hi,

# model
# 9000/800/L3000-6x

9000 - HP9000 family (always PA-Risc)
800 - server
L3000-6x - L3000 model (aka 5470) with 650 MHz CPUs

on an Integrity (Itanium2) it looks like this:

# model
ia64 hp superdome server SD16B

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Hi Indrajit,

 

We have got plenty of answers from other to check whether your server is PA-RISC or Itanium.

 

1] Using model command.

 

There is one other command to differentiate PA RISC with Itanium.Below command only works on Itanium servers.

 

#machinfo

I don't see a reason why to answer a 4 years old thread again, but

>> Below command only works on Itanium servers.

#machinfo



is simply wrong!!!



"machinfo" works on both, Itanium and RISC, if you run 11.31:
