WHich RHEL os/update is for HP IA 64?

Hi,
i wanted to install IA 64 RHEL in one of my IA machine.
Can you all please suggest which upgrade version will be good as I have heard that some RHEL upgrades does not perform good in hp IA 64 machines.

Please suggest.

If there is good options with RHEL 4 then also it will do but I need a stable RHEL upgrade (RHEL 4/5) so that I can use this for a long time.

Hello Narendra,

Check the Documentation for specific model in www.docs.hp.com

p.s. You have an option to have HPVM Guest if capacity of the box permits and you have HPVM Software.

Happy Installation!!

# model

I checked the list but it says RHEL4/5 both will do but I have read that we have some issues with some upgrades of RHEL4/5.

Narendra,

I have successfully installed RHEL4/5 on one of rx2660 machines.
So give it a try and let us know if you have any issue.

Good Luck!!

I have just upgraded my rx3600 to RHEL4 U8

This is the last update to contain hardware
support upgrades. So why not start with this?
