Hi,

No Answers at all, no problem I manage to find out the answers which are near to accurate,

FIRMWARE:
For RX,

Code:
#usr/contrib/bin/machinfo | grep "Firmware revision"
Firmware revision:  04.04

For RP,

Code:
#/usr/sbin/diag/contrib/pdcinfo -no_banner | grep Version
-----------------  Processor 0 HPMC Information - PDC Version: 46.34  ------
-----------------  Processor 1 HPMC Information - PDC Version: 46.34  ------
  Format Version  : 0x1                   Language Code : 0x0

The values we are getting For
RX:4.04
RP:46.34

are same values when we run sysrev at MP


Code:
MP:CM> sysrev


SYSREV

Current firmware revisions

 MP FW     : E.03.30
 BMC FW    : 03.52
 System FW : 46.34

We can consider this value as System Firmware Version.

KERNEL VERSION:

In HP-UX there is no separate kernel version like linux and solaris, here the kernel version is same as OS version. Which can be simply retrieve by

Code:
# uname -r
B.11.23

PATCH VERSION:


Code:
#swlist HPUX*OE*
# Initializing...
# Contacting target "xxxxxx"...
#
# Target:  xxxxxx:/
#

# HPUX11i-OE                    B.11.23.0609   HP-UX Foundation Operating Environment Component
  HPUX11i-OE.OE                 B.11.23.0609   HP-UX OE control script product
  HPUX11i-OE.PRM-Sw-Lib         C.03.02        Process Resource Manager PRM-Sw-Lib product
  HPUX11i-OE.PRM-Sw-Krn         C.01.04        Process Resource Manager PRM-Sw-Krn product
  HPUX11i-OE.PAM-Kerberos       C.01.24        PAM-Kerberos Version 1.24

  HPUX11i-OE.CIFS-Client        A.02.02        CIFS Client
  HPUX11i-OE.PAM-NTLM           A.02.02        HP NTLM Pluggable Authentication Module

# /usr/sbin/swlist -l bundle | grep -Ei 'GOLD|QPK'
  QPKAPPS               B.11.23.0609.053a Applications Quality Pack Bundle for HP-UX 11i v2, September 2006
  QPKBASE               B.11.23.0609.053a Base Quality Pack Bundle for HP-UX 11i v2, September 2006


if we need to answer that what is the patch version of your HP-UX system, then we can answer as B.11.23.0609

If you have machinfo command available, it should show you desired FW information in one go (among cpu/mem count, serial numbers).

For patches, operating environment version
Code:
 swlist HPUX*OE*

This should give you an initial version of HPUX v2 installed e.g(11.23.0409), which you can reference further in HP docs for any action that needs to be taken regarding same.

You also want to check make and model if you plan upgrading to higher release (11.31), if it is supported to run that OS.

From your swlist output i see the machine has been patched with so called QPK bundle (quality pack patch bundle), which is fine. They are quite old tho, from 2006.

In my experience, applying QPK patch bundle is a low risk operation, and it should be done at fairly regular intervals. It will require a reboot or two.

If you apply the latest QPK bundle, you can consider your 11.23 HPUX fully patched.
Be sure to read release notes carefully and apply things in right order if required.

There is also a client utility called 'hpsum' which will connect to any HP server, provide information regarding FW levels and apply them on all equipment if wanted.

Check out 'HP-UX Software Assistant' as well, as it is a handy set of command line tools to generate reports about patches, download them via proxy and similar.


Hope that helps
Regards
Peasant.

cfg2html for HP-UX

Hello,

some years ago using HP-UX (RISC).

I know, there's a tool "cfg2html" for HP-UX available.

Here :

cfg2html - Config To HTML Collector (external mirror for beta versions) by ROSE SWE - free download and use!

Regards
