Operating Systems HP-UX [Solved] Patching HP-UX 11.31 from DVD vs. ITRC Post 302847719 by lupin..the..3rd on Tuesday 27th of August 2013 03:28:48 PM

[Solved] Patching HP-UX 11.31 from DVD vs. ITRC

Howdy folks, in keeping my servers patched up to date, I normally use the swainv shell script to generate inventory.xml, upload it to ITRC for patch analysis, and then download the recommended bundle.

I have a whole bunch of 11.31 servers that are not internet-connected now, but I do have the latest March 2013 media on DVD (I think the last time I patched these was in early 2012). My question for the group, is whether it's possible to get these servers patched up to date using these DVD discs? Is there some way to do a patch analysis and install any applicable patches or updates that are present on the DVD media?

This would save me a lot of time, vs. manually moving all the inventory.xml files to an internet-connected machine, and then having to move the large patch bundles back onto the isolated servers.
