Cold-install means installing system software on a new (uninstalled) or existing system by completely rebuilding the root volume group, erasing the existing operating system and data on that volume, and installing the new operating system and specified software and data.

You can choose two different methods to cold-install HP-UX 11i v3 on a supported system: 1) by direct installation from the DVD media; 2) by creating depots on servers using SD-UX or Ignite-UX and installing it over the network.

An advantage of cold-install is that supported software can be installed without regard for the software currently on the system, or concern for cleaning up old software.

Supported versions of HP-UX that can be configured as Ignite-UX servers include HP-UX 11i v1, HP-UX 11i v2, and HP-UX 11i v3. Ignite-UX servers installed on any of these HP-UX systems can be configured to cold-install HP-UX 11i v3.

NOTE: HP-UX 11i v3 is not supported on workstations. HP recommends that PA-RISC Workstation customers use HP-UX 11i v1 and Itanium Workstation customers use HP-UX 11i v2.
