how to access all the HP-UX patch details.

Hi,

We were using some perl script for download all the HP-UX patch details using the xml file ftp://ftp.itrc.hp.com/export/patches/patches.xml. But from last month onwards this file location is not accessible. Is there any location or file which is having similar kind of data which we can refer for patch details in automation ?
if its not available, then which is the link for having all the HP-UX patch details ?


Thanks in advance,
Chanthu

Re: how to access all the HP-UX patch details.

For a particular patch you can use something like:
http://www.itrc.hp.com/service/patch/patchDetail.do?patchid=PHSS_41178

I assume swa can get a listing of patches, not sure how much detail it has.

Hi,
HP has changed the way patches are accessed in October. Patch access is now through the itrc.hp.com. You need also a valid
hp support agreement.

Re: how to access all the HP-UX patch details.

I am having a valid HP support agreement and I register with it. Now I can access the details also. Now I am using the following link to download all the HP-UX patches.
https://www13.itrc.hp.com/service/patch/releaseIndexPage.do?BC=main|

My question is that is this contains all the Hp-UX released patches or is there any more links which I have to refer ?

No, you cannot access all the patches available in that link, for example if you need OV specific patches, you have to go:

http://support.openview.hp.com/downloads.jsp

and select software patches to go on..

But I do not know it is temporary arrangement OR permanent by HP ?

This is the "standard HP-UX patch bundles index". This only has patches that have been recommended and have the appropriate quality and download lifetime.

To get the info, you must download all of them patches there, then you can look at the README file for each.

If you just want the patch details, you are going to get lots of extra info. :-)

Though of you follow the links, you may be happy with the details on this page:
