How to install RamDisc plus on your HP-UX system...
To obtain a license: We need to gather some info about the system that you plan on
installing the RamDisc Plus utility. Download the hp-ux license request executable.
This binary file is only compatible with HP-UX OS revisions 10.x or higher and displays
the information we need to know in order to generate a new RamDisc Plus license key.
Use this file for a demo license as well. Just tell us how many demo days you need.
The executable displays system information as well as company and contact information.
Complete and send all of the information to firstname.lastname@example.org for a license request.
Copy the downloaded ramplus-revXXX.tar file to your HP-UX /tmp directory.
Logged in as root, do the following:
# tar -xvf /tmp/ramplus-revXXX.tar
(If this is a revision upgrade then stop here.)
# /sbin/ramdisc -install (for initial installation)
(Add license and configure storage requirements.)
(The system will reconfigure the kernel and reboot the system if needed.)
(Use /sbin/ramdisc without the install option afterwards for additional configuration.)
(You may want to use the -display option for systems without graphics using X windows.)
