I have question, my systems come with 11i v2. I'm thinking why I shouldn't I upgrade to 11i v3 ??
But I'm wondering about the MirrorDisk Lic + Online JFS Linc + the OS Support. What will happen to my Lics ?

I'm checking if I can upgrade and one of the steps is to check the FW of our HBA.
I have :
HP AB379-60001 4Gb Dual Port PCI/PCI-X Fibre Channel Adapter
HP-UX SW :
# swlist FibrChanl-01
# Contacting target "repsrv"...
# Target: repsrv:/
# FibrChanl-01 B.11.23.1003.01 FibrChnl;SupptdHW=A6826A,A9782A,A9784A,AB378A,AB37
FibrChanl-01.FC-FCD B.11.23.1003.01 HP PCI-X/PCIe FibreChannel Driver(FCD)
But the FW is not as HP recommend. It should be 4.2

if you have a software support agreement, all your licenses are transferable.
The reason you don't want to upgrade, eg use upgrade-ux is because that process is not reliable. You want to cold install the OS and then do your applications fresh.
