How to Find the OS version Installed

Hi,

I wanted to know how can I get the version of underlying HP-OS installed on a HPUX workstation. The output required is "June 2001" version or "March 2003" version etc whatever OS is present.

Thanx in advance for your help.

Regards,
Pankaj

Do you mean, as an alternative to uname -a?
# 3  
yes bcoz uname -a is not useful as it does not give the OS version in terms of July 20XX or March 20XX.

Hi,

What do you mean by "version" ? The HP/UX version you get with "uname -r", but I see that's not what you want...
You can get the date when the kernel was built with echo "linkstamp?s" | adb /stand/vmunix, and with "swlist" you can get the latest bundle of patches installed... You can get more release information with "what /stand/vmunix"...
