Incorrect...

 

HP-UX11iv3 Update Releases (i.e. those releases that include new product versions and are installed using update-ux) have moved to annual release schedules, with the next update release coming in March 2014.

 

HP-UX Patch bundles (usually referred to as quality packs, and installed using swinstall) remain on a 6 month cadence. The September 2013 quality pack should be available any day if it isn't already available via the support centre.

Hi Dunkan,

 

do you mean   sep-13  quality pack bundle/sep-13 patch bundles  for hpux 11.31 will be avl any time soon  ?...ideally  it should be released sep  itself   ,i think HP is delaying that ....pls  help to clarify  as i was speaking one of the HP ASM and he said no  patch bundle (sep-13) this year  for hpux11.31 ...

Yes thats the case - QPK 1309 should be available soon - its not unusual for the March/September patch bundle to not be released until April/October - you need to get your ASM to check his facts - there is no September 2013 Update Release, but there will be a set of patch bundles.

I should add, I can already see the bundle (QPK B.11.31.1309) on some internal servers - just not released into the wild yet...
