Hewlett Packard HP-UX Download Instructions/Requirements

  1. Read the operating requirements for this software:
    • HP-UX 11.0 or 11i
    • Appropriate patches applied to operating system. For patches required to run Java 1.4.2, see:
    • Common Desktop Environment (X Window System)
    • TCP/IP network protocol
    • 100 MB of free disk space on the partition where MultiLink will be installed (during installation, the /tmp directory must have 200 MB free)
    • A mouse or other pointing device
    • 512 MB of RAM
    • A minimum of 90 threads per process. This is the kernel parameter max_thread_proc, which can be viewed or modified using SAM.
    • HP recommends mid-range N class and low-end L-class systems and PA-8500-based workstations to obtain optimal performance when running Java applications. The recommended minimum system for running Java applications is a PA-RISC 2.0 system or a PA-RISC 1.1 system with a floating-point coprocessor. For information on setting important system parameters required for correct execution of Java programs, go to:
  2. Log on to the host as root. You may need to add "execute" mode to the saved file (chmod +x ML_35_xxx_HP-UX_PA-RISC.bin).
  3. Extract the *.bin file from the GNU zip file to a location of your choice and begin the install process.
  4. If you intend to connect your Liebert UPS to a serial port on the computer on which MultiLink will be installed, you will need to make or purchase a custom cable for the software to work. ORDINARY SERIAL CABLES WILL NOT WORK! Some UPS models ship with a MultiLink cable. Please refer to the APPENDIX B of the Liebert MultiLink Advanced; User Manual; (REV03_08/12) (SL-53625) for detailed instruction on "Making Your Own MultiLink UPS Cable" from parts available at most electronics parts stores.

If you decide to purchase a cable instead of building one, you can contact your local Liebert Representative, Value-Added Reseller, or distributor and ask to purchase a MultiLink UPS cable.
