You might be able to pick up a used PA-RISC server that will run 11.31.

Something like a used rp3440, rp4440, rx2620, rx1620 or similar would be ideal. All can run hp-ux 11.23 and 11.31. The rx-series can even do virtualization (virtual machines).

Hope this helps!

Re: Any simulator for learning HP-UX

if you have HPUX systems in your environment you could consider a VM as a testbed and learning system assuming you have a Integrity VM host.

Re: Any simulator for learning HP-UX

No, you dont have any HPUX simulators for other OS. I have already searched about it very badly but could not find.


Your old integrity server can just do the thing you want .
