steps for updating your system with update ux-34

Mount the DVD onto the new directory as a file system.

Follow the instructions to create a network depot from the following link: [1] Prior to updating your system, you must install a supported version of the update-ux command from the Operating Environment DVDs.DVD HPUX11i-OE-Ent T1335CC When using Update-UX to update v Pars, you must update in this manner, in which case you are updating both the OS and v Pars version with the same command line.After the all updates for the above virtual partitions have completed, use Update-UX to install the latest OE and v Pars bundle to the first virtual partition. Example: keira1 # update-ux -s depot1:/release/1131/HPUX11i-OE-Ent. DVD HPUX11i-OE-Ent T1335CC Although you can do all the updates in parallel, you need to make sure that all of the other virtual partition updates have successfully performed the updating to the point of halting.Otherwise, if you wish to have the alternate boot disk up dated, after updating the OS on the primary boot path disk, boot the virtual partitions from the alternate path boot disk and repeat the update-ux procedure.For example, if keira2 has an alternate boot disk that is not a mirror of the primary boot disk, and you wish to update the OS on the alternate boot disk, boot keira2 from the alternate boot path using: If needed (depending upon how your n Partition’s autoboot configuration is set up), interrupt the n Partition boot process and load the v Pars Monitor.To convert the base memory to float memory, see “Memory: Converting Base Memory to Float Memory”.

During an update from HP-UX 11i v2 to 11i v3, existing legacy DSFs are retained and persistent DSFs will be created.

Configuration files will not be modified, so system devices will continue to use the existing legacy DSFs.

Although you can update all the virtual partitions, including the first virtual partition, in parallel, by leaving the first virtual partition up until all the updates for the other virtual partitions are complete, it allows you to use the first virtual partition to verify the processing and status of the other virtual partitions.

Example: keira2 # update-ux -s depot1:/release/1131/HPUX11i-OE-Ent. DVD HPUX11i-OE-Ent T1335CC keira3 # update-ux -s depot1:/release/1131/HPUX11i-OE-Ent.

In the next step, the entire n Partition will be rebooted; if the other virtual partitions are still in progress of updating, the OS instances may be in an unknown state.
