It has been a rough stretch for Itanium. HP and its customers were startled after Oracle abruptly announced its intent to discontinue software development on HP's Itanium servers. But neither HP nor Intel has backed away from Itanium, and last week's announcements appear to affirm that.
The next-generation Itanium chip for Unix and Linux dedicated servers, code-named
Poulson will be launched later this year, according to Intel. It will succeed the current Itanium chip code-named Tukwila, which
was released in 2009 after many delays.
I just had this problem where suddenly I cannot ssh into my HP-UX itanium, but still can ping. Few hours before that, I was still able to so. I tried to force reboot (Pressing the power button). Then, I cannot ssh or ping to the server anymore. My only available option now is to use a serial monitor.
I'm trying to run a test program that will display the process of a requested pid. If the pid is not inserted, it's suppose to get the process for pid 1 which is init. Somehow when I run it on hp-ux itanium, it cannot display the process. This only happens on hp-ux itanium for pid 1. For other pid and platform, it works just fine.
I have installed RHEL 5.5 Itanium on HP integrity rx2660 server for virtulization testing purpose. I have found that KVM is not built for itanium, Thus I switch over to XEN virtulization. Now another issue has came while creating VM on XEN that it gives hvmloader missing error below is error detail:-
Sure, HP and Oracle are locked in the Itanium legal feud. But it’s time for the media to state the obvious — yet again: Itanium was dead (or at least doomed) long before Oracle killed development for the 64-bit HP-Intel chip. So why did Oracle (NASDAQ: ORCL) and HP (NYSE: HPQ) wind up in court over a dead, er… struggling, microprocessor?
