Re: remove swap

Only if you are on HP-UX 11iv3 / 11.31. I There is a swapoff command with that version.

On all previous version, you must reboot.

Hi:

To add, you may need to install the 'swapoff' product on your 11.31 server:

If I recall correctly, this will require a reboot. Of course, once installed you will not have to worry yourself about future reboots to remove swap devices :-)

Regards!
