Hi Nejad.


jsut few points:

1) make sure that the system is running the latest firmware(Hardware is supported on 11.23).
2)make sure that the latest update-ux (#swinstall -s /dvdrom Update-Ux)bundle is installed from the 11.23 DVD. here at /dvdrom the MC-OE 11.23 Media is mounted.
3)also that TUI or install is invoked for the update like

#/usr/sbin/upate-ux -s /source HPUX11i-MC-OE

no typo

or just invoke TUI using

#/usr/sbin/update-ux -i -s /Source

Re: Problem during the upgrade to 11.23

there,s one corretion however

#/usr/sbin/upate-ux -s /source HPUX11i-MC-OE

reads

#/usr/sbin/upate-ux -s /source HPUX11i-OE-MC



also please go trough the update notes.

Re: Problem during the upgrade to 11.23

hi Nejad,


I am sorry, might sound silly but the command that you are using is

#/usr/sbin/update-ux -s /dvdrom HPUXi-OE-MC


can this be tried :

#/usr/sbin/update-ux -s /dvdrom HPUX11i-OE-MC


Perhaps missing "11" in the command a typo.

or
