What kind of HA? HP sell something called MC/Serviceguard. Is that what you have purchased? –  davey Jan 16 '10 at 8:25
another possibility might be using oracles rac for ha. –  Christian Jan 16 '10 at 12:21

1 Answer 1

You do HA in HP/UX using Serviceguard or Veritas Cluster.

There is no software to automatically install the OS, configure cluster, define backups and all the things a sysadmin is supposed to do.

You don't need extra hardware except for heartbeat and standby interfaces.
