vPars A.04.04 for HP-UX 11i v2 – June 2007

Requests for this release are due back to Hewlett-Packard by: 
December 31, 2007

ATTENTION: If you request HP-UX 11i v2 Virtual Partitions – June 2007 (vPars A.04.04), please note that this is for the following servers, assuming they are running at least the June 2007 HP-UX 11i v2 Operating Environment (Fusion 0706) (the OS version this was certified on):

·         Select HP Integrity cell-based servers based on the HP sx1000 or sx2000 chipsets including:  HP Integrity Superdome, HP Superdome with sx2000, HP rx8640, HP rx8620, HP rx7620, HP rx7640

·         Select HP 9000 cell-based servers based on the HP sx1000 or sx2000 chipsets including: HP 9000 Superdome, HP 9000 Superdome with sx2000, HP rp8440, HP rp8420, HP rp8400, HP rp7440, HP rp7420, HP rp7410, HP rp7405, HP rp7400/N4000, HP rp5470/L3000

HP-UX 11i Virtual Partitions is software that divides a physical server into multiple virtual servers, each with their own HP-UX Operating System, and CPU, memory and I/O resources.  By using vPars, customers can utilize unused server capacity, increase overall server utilization, and increase flexibility of those resources.

The main new capabilities provided by HP-UX 11i v2 vPars - June 2007 (vPars A.04.04), on HP-UX 11i v2, are:

        HP 9000 rp8440, rp7440, Superdome sx2000 server support

        Pre-enablement of SCSI tape boot and recovery support for vPars environments running on HP Integrity servers with HP-UX 11i v2. (Note: the firmware required for this feature is currently planned to be released in 4Q CY 2007.)

HP-UX 11i v2 Virtual Partitions (vPars) version A.04.04 software will be released concurrently with the June 2007 HP-UX 11i v2 Operating Environment Update Release (B.11.23 OEUR), although vPars is ordered separately, and distributed on a separate DVD. 

If the vPars software for the given HP Integrity or HP 9000 servers is on an HP upgrade support contract, this release would be covered by that contract.

Please be aware of the firmware requirements and end of support dates for vPars releases, listed in the “HP-UX Virtual Partitions Ordering and Configuration Guide” @: http://docs.hp.com/en/oshpux11iv2.html#Virtual%20Partitions.
