2.2.3.1. HP-UX Patches

The HP-UX 11i host must have the correct packages and dependencies installed to run Directory Server. The patch list changes daily, so check the HP site regularly to ensure you have the latest releases:
The first package to install is the PHSS_30966: ld(1) and linker tools cumulative patch. The other required patches are listed in Table 2.5, “HP-UX 11i Patches”. Run the dsktune utility to see if you need to install any other patches. dsktune helps verify whether the appropriate patches are installed on the system and provides useful information for tuning your kernel parameters for best performance. For information on dsktune, see Section 2.2.1, “Using dsktune”.
