The uname, model, and swlist commands can help you determine information about your system, including its hardware type, machine model, operating system version, and operating environment update status. See uname(1), model(1), and swlist(1M).

For OS naming conventions, see “HP-UX 11i Release Names and Operating System Version Identifiers”.
