Re: how to get info for server architecture hpux 11.11

hi,

ok combination of model + uname -a

model will get you if the servers is a

Itanium or PA-RISC

Itanium rx

PA-RISC rp

uname -a will give you an information about OS

for example :

PA-RISC

kmsapsdv:/>model
9000/800/rp3440
kmsapsdv:/>uname -a
HP-UX kmsapsdv B.11.11 U 9000/800 2769987561 unlimited-user license


Itanium :

kmsr3dev:/>model
ia64 hp server rx4640
kmsr3dev:/>uname -a
HP-UX kmsr3dev B.11.23 U ia64 3649126617 unlimited-user license

Re: how to get info for server architecture hpux 11.11

It's a PA-RISC machine, because it is a 800 series machine running 11.11.

Hope this helps!

Re: how to get info for server architecture hpux 11.11

so in conslusion

the server which belongs to PA-RISC = rpxxx
the server which belongs to Itanium = rx

correct?

Re: how to get info for server architecture hpux 11.11

Hi,

Just run command "model" to know which architecture your server have.

if output is having string

rp - Server architecture is PA-RISC
rx - means Server architecture is Itanium.

Re: how to get info for server architecture hpux 11.11

Several indicators:

- from "model" command you sea "rx...." for most Integrity servers, "rp..." for most RISC servers.

- from "uname" command you see
"9000/800" for RISC servers, "ia64" for Integrities

- only RISC servers can run hp-ux 11.11 (this is what you have)

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: how to get info for server architecture hpux 11.11

hi,

yes but on some PA-Risc models could be the HP-UX 11v2/3 installed.

check this links

PA-RISC

Integrity - Itanium

Re: how to get info for server architecture hpux 11.11

hi,

yes i is a PA-risc

from this site :

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HP-UX

#========================================

10.20 (1996)
This release included support for PA-RISC processors that support PA2.0, including 64-bit data registers. Pluggable Authentication Modules (PAM) were introduced for use within CDE. The root file system could be configured to use the Veritas File System (VxFS). For legacy as well as technical reasons, the file system used for the boot kernel remained Hi Performance FileSystem (HPFS; a variant of UFS) until version 11.23. 10.20 also supported 32-bit user and group identifiers. The prior limit was 60,000, or 16-bit. This and earlier releases of HP-UX are now effectively obsolete, and support by HP ended on June 30, 2003.

Re: how to get info for server architecture hpux 11.11

Your system is probably older than every Integrity machine.

Its a 700 series PA-RISC workstation, hence you see 9000/7xx string (9000 family, 700 series).

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Does it say "ia64"? That's really all you
need to know.

Re: how to get info for server architecture hpux 11.11

Ignoring for the moment 11i v1.5 (11.20) and 11i v1.6 (11.22) (both of which were Itanium-only releases :) the first OS rev to support Itanium processors was 11i v2 (11.23).

So, any OS revision 11.11 or earlier is by definition running on a PA-RISC system. (Ignoring for the moment the really old history of Motorola 68K based workstations and the like :)

As pointed-out, if the output of `uname -m` is ia64 then it is Itanium. Otherwise, it is HP-UX

A few typos:
If you have ia64, you have an Integrity server, otherwise you have PA-RISC.

Re: how to get info for server architecture hpux 11.11

Well, in that case, I'll see your nit and raise you :)

"If you have ia64, you have an Integrity server with Itanium processors, otherwise you have an HP 9000 with PA-RISC processors :)"
