Working on Patching HP-UX Servers

1) Run the software inventory tool.

[saptst01:root]/ # uname -a
HP-UX sapux20 B.11.31 U ia64 0574715905 unlimited-user license
[saptst01:root]/ # swainv
sh: swainv:  not found.
[saptst01:root]/ # whereis swainv
swainv: /opt/swa/lbin/swainv

This script lists the patches, products, bundles, and filesets found
in a system or depot and packages the information in a file for transfer
to the ITRC or the Response Center.

      * Listing Filesets
      * Listing Products
      * Listing Bundles
      * Inventory written to inventory.xml
[saptst01:root]/ # ls -al inventory.xml
-rw-r--r--   1 root       sys        1067962 Feb 27 14:28 inventory.xml

2) Upload it to https://h20566.www2.hpe.com/portal/site/hpsc/patch/home/ >> Upload new system information.

3) Once the inventory.xml is uploaded click "Find HP-UX patches in a patch set".  Or select from the option on the right side of the site.


4) In my case I chose "Patch bundles for my uploaded HP-UX system - HP-UX: 11.31 - saptst01" and selected Bundle for March 2016.

From here, I can start analysing which patch set I need to install on my system(s).
