Ignite-UX Server Requirements

Hardware and software requirements for an Ignite-UX server.
Content starts here

HP-UX Versions

An Ignite-UX server must run 11i v1 (B.11.11), 11i v2 (B.11.23), or 11i v3 (B.11.31).


Ignite-UX runs on HP Integrity server blades and systems, and PA-RISC systems.

Disk Space

Ignite-UX servers must have at least 2 GB of free disk space available in /opt/ignite to support installation of all three HP-UX 11i releases. To save space, support only those HP-UX versions you plan to install or recover.

Ignite-UX servers typically require significant space in /var/opt/ignite to support client systems, store software depots, and save recovery archives. Default file system sizes are unlikely to be sufficient for an Ignite-UX server.

NOTE: If you are installing HP-UX 11i v3, your client boot disk must be at least 9 GB. HP-UX 11i v3 requires more space on the HP-UX boot disk than prior HP-UX releases.


Client installation and recovery performance is typically limited by network throughput. Normally, no special consideration for server system memory is needed.

NOTE: See the Ignite-UX Release Notes for client systems' memory requirements.
For more information on Ignite-UX requirements, see the Ignite-UX Administration Guide.
