Task 1: Configuring OE Applications
After updating to an HP-UX 11i v3 Operating Environment (OE),
some OE products need post-installation configuration to make them
functional. This need may be indicated by a message logged in /var/opt/swm/swm.log.
Refer to each product’s installation instructions for
details. The location of OE product documentation is listed in the HP-UX 11i v3 Release Notes, available on the Instant
Information DVD and at the HP Technical Documentation Web site:
Task 2: Migrating to the Agile Mass Storage Stack (Optional)
In HP-UX 11i v3, there are two types of DSFs for mass storage:
legacy DSFs and persistent DSFs. Both can be used to access a given
mass storage device independently and can coexist on a given system.
The new mass storage stack for HP-UX 11i v3 is intended to supersede
the existing mass storage stack. However, in HP-UX 11i v3 they can
exist in parallel. Existing legacy DSFs will continue to work as before;
they are completely backward compatible, and will not be affected
by any persistent DSFs on the same server.
When you update from HP-UX 11i v2 to 11i v3, existing legacy
DSFs are retained, and persistent DSFs will be created. Configuration
files are not updated, so system devices will continue to use the
existing legacy DSFs.
You may choose to migrate to the new agile mass storage stack
or you can continue to use the legacy mass storage stack. If you want
to use the new features of the agile mass storage stack and are not
affected by existing limitations, you may want to migrate to the new
mass storage stack.
For more information on the new mass storage stack and to migrate
from the legacy view to the agile view refer to the white paper called, The Next Generation Mass Storage Stack: HP-UX 11i v3 and
the white paper called HP-UX 11i v3 Persistent DSF Migration
