Hi:

To answer what's different/new in release N and release N+ is to examine the release notes for release N+. In this case, look at each update release for 11.31 beginning with:

http://docs.hp.com/en/5991-6469/index.html

For the most recent update release, read:

http://docs.hp.com/en/5900-0578/index.html

As you peruse this documentation you will find links to other in-depth documents too.

Regards!

Shalom,

More dynamic kernel parameters, once properly configured, 11.31 has given us a 20% performance improvement on similar systems.

Also note from the docs you were given. If making a choice between 11.23 and 11.31, the End of life date is December 31 2013 on 11.23 and December 31 2017 on 11.31

There is better virtualization support on 11.31

Start here:

Before you start anything, download this program. It is mandatory to run this check program to verify that your hardwarte and firmware will run 11.31. Note that *NO* PA-RISC systems will run 11.31 unless they are cell-based (such as rp7410, rp7420, rp8400, rp8420, and SuperDomes). rx models (Itanium/Integrity) are OK but look at the results of installing and running the msv2v3check program:

Unfortunately, 11.31 is a lot more complicated by the existence of several updates. Here are the notes for all of them:

http://h20338.www2.hp.com/enterprise/w1/en/os/hpux11i-v3-overview.html

Look at the notes at the bottom of the page.

Also checkout the QuickSpecs page:

Not completely true. The rp34xx and rp44xx (non-cell based) systems are supported with 11.31.

> Patrick: Thanks for the clarification. I should have looked at the list more carefully. It is still a fairly exclusive list for older hardware.
