You need the DVD!

Use a PC based burning program or "dd" from hp-ux to create the ISO file.

Hope this helps!

Shalom,

No senthil, you will need to take the DVD install media and use dd to make the iso yourself.

Assuming you have a software contract, you can use your DVD as a the source and create your own iso.

I don't know what you are going to do with it. HP-UX has a very hard time mounting iso files.

> [...] in ISO format.

ISO is a standards organization.

http://www.iso.org

When you get there, search for "9660".
ISO-9660 is a CD-ROM file system standard.

> Use a PC based burning program or "dd" from
> hp-ux to create the ISO file.

"dd" can create an image of the CD/DVD. It's
an ISO-9660 image if the CD/DVD contained an
ISO-9660 file system. If an HP-UX CD/DVD
contains some other file system, then "dd"
can create an image of it, but it will not
be an ISO-9660 image.

Calling a CD/DVD image "an ISO" is common,
but it is misleading.

The cdrtools package also includes a
"readcd" program, which is a bit more
convenient than "dd".

> I don't know what you are going to do with

One could make a DVD from it.

Of course, this whole discussion may have
little to do with the real problem, about
which we know approximately nothing. If the
real question is, "Where can I download an
HP-UX installation DVD image?", then the
answer has little to do with which format is
used on the DVD.

HP-UX is not available for download. You need to buy media kits from HP.

Re: How to get the latest version of hpux B.11.31 in ISO format

Based on other threads from senthil_kumar I'm sure he will use the ISOs to install virtual machines. This is many tomes faster than using real media. "dd" copies work fine, so I suggest to use this.

Hope this helps!

You're in India, right? Did you note the part where it said "US only?"?

You might state *exactly* what it is you are trying to do, as I don't believe the standard distibution media is in ISO format either (but I could be wrong)....

E-Delivery and Requirements

Otherwise you can use Software Update Manager (set the links above left) to request physical media. This may NOT be in ISO format.

Re: How to get the latest version of hpux B.11.31 in ISO format

Hi All,

I have linked my service aggrement id with my login, so i am able to access "software update manager".

I used following steps:

Software Update Manager --> request updates -->all service aggrement (selected) --> release (selected) -->Then i have selected particular release "HP-UX 11i v3 OE Update Release 09/2009"

Here i have doubts, actually i want to install HP-UX 11i v3 on Integrity server (rx3600). but here the available platform is "HP9000", so can i use this for Integrity server?

Re: How to get the latest version of hpux B.11.31 in ISO format

with a valid software maintenance contract, I'd *assume* not or, if there is a charge, that it's minimal (as in the cost of the media plus shipping).

Further, I believe it will *tell* you what it costs when you actually get to the part where you order it, but I'm not certain.

But, I'm not HP, so I don't know that for sure. You could always call, open a ticket or ????
