Sorry I whacked the return key.

rpm -qa --last | tail

That might work for rhel and suse.

For Red Hat you can also try:

ls -lc /var/log/anaconda.log

or

cat /etc/motd

Re: How to find the installed date of HPUX and Linux

Hi Senthil,

For HP-UX :

# swlist -l bundle -a date | grep HPUX
# print_manifest | grep -i created
# swlist -a install_date HPUX11i-OE

For Redhat Linux:
# rpm -qi basesystem

In the output you can see the installation date:

Install Date: Wed 07 Jan 2009 04:23:27 AM IST

For Suse Linux:

Sorry...no idea. Chek the above replies.
