Re: how to find patch level in my HPUX server?

'swlist -l patch' will list all of the patches installed. Is that what you are looking for?

There is also a patch assessment which works pretty well you can run here:

Re: how to find patch level in my HPUX server?

I mean is there any way by which we can find ok my system patch level is X. Something like that or it is according to individual package?

Re: how to find patch level in my HPUX server?

ah, i see what you mean. i think you might have to look at sim. i'm pretty sure there is a patch management component that might be close to what you want.

Shalom,

swlist -l product

Its definitely a swlist command. Which one you use depends on what you mean by patch level.

Re: how to find patch level in my HPUX server?

I didn't get the answer of my question. In AIX there is technology level. So if we are at TL 4 means we are at patch level 4 for the system. Is there any way by which I can find at which patch level my system is.

Thanks

2) Updates to those versions:
swlist -l bundle
HPUX11i-TCOE B.11.23.0409 HP-UX Technical Computing OE Component
(This is the Sept 2004 update.)
HPUX11i-DC-OE B.11.31.0803 HP-UX Data Center Operating Environment
(This is the Mar 2008 update.)
3) Patch bundles
swlist -l bundle
FEATURE11i B.11.31.0803.318b Feature Enablement Patches for HP-UX 11i v3, March 2008
HWEnable11i B.11.31.0803.318a Hardware Enablement Patches for HP-UX 11i v3, March 2008

In HP-UX we have specific bundles which contains list of patches

The standard bundles could be found at

Re: how to find patch level in my HPUX server?

Hi:

For the base operating system version as originally installed, do:

# swlist -l bundle HPUXBaseAux

You will see something like:

HPUXBaseAux B.11.23.0712 HP-UX Base OS Auxiliary

The date string is "0712" which is in YYMM format, so this one is December 2007.

For the latest applied patches, assuming you use the standard bundles (you should):

# swlist |grep -Ei "qpk|gold"

...which on an 11.11 server might show:

GOLDAPPS11i B.11.11.0712.475 Applications Patches for HP-UX 11i v1, December 2007
GOLDBASE11i B.11.11.0712.475 Base Patches for HP-UX 11i v1, December 2007

...and on an 11.23 server:

QPKAPPS B.11.23.0806.072 Applications Patches for HP-UX 11i v2, June 2008 QPKBASE B.11.23.0806.072 Base Quality Pack Bundle for HP-UX 11i v2, June 2008

Re: how to find patch level in my HPUX server?

Hi (again):

> I didn't get the answer of my question. In AIX there is technology level. So if we are at TL 4 means we are at patch level 4 for the system. Is there any way by which I can find at which patch level my system is.

I meant to add that AIX marks things differently --- as TL or formerly ML such that a simple 'oslevel -r' returns a simple string that gives you the a simple marker point.

My answer above is about the closest analogous answer, I believe.

Regards!
