Hello,

you can use update-ux to have this done. Check out this document:

http://docs.hp.com/en/5992-1978/5992-1978.pdf

However there are several threads in this forum where experienced users do not recommend using update-ux due to high rate of unsuccessful runs. If you want to be 100% sure that nothing goes wrong, use a cold install process.

I have successfuly updated between different releases of the same OS version (11.23) using update-ux but have not tried to go up between different versions. So my recommendation for your situation would be to cold-install the system with 11.23 and migrate the data.

Shalom,

You should NOT do the upgrade.

You should do a cold install of 11.23 OS, followed by re-installation and configuration of all critical applications.

update-ux is unreliable and often fails.

Many application vendors do not support its use.

Hi:

Updating from 11.11 to 11.23 _IS_ a SUPPORTED path.

My personal preference is certainly a cold-install as it it the cleanest build. Updates from old 10.20 to 11.0 releases often failed or were virtual nightmares. Transitions accross current releases are generally successful if you have a clean starting point and plan accordingly.

See the most current guide, however:
