 Advisory Information

UPDATED: 26 July 2004

The original 5.1A PK6 (BL24) ERP kit identified in this EA contained a kitting error that prevented the kit from being installed on NHD7. This EA is being updated to include the location of the corrected 5.1A PK6 kit.

A potential problem in HP Tru64 UNIX V5.1B PK3/BL24 and V5.1A PK6/BL24 can cause a premature TCP connection termination to occur when backups or large print jobs are performed over the network.


The following versions are affected:

  • HP Tru64 UNIX V5.1B PK3 (BL24)
  • HP Tru64 UNIX V5.1A PK6 (BL24)

HP is releasing Early Release Patch (ERP) kits to resolve this potential problem.

The fix contained in the ERP kits is scheduled to be available in the following mainstream patch kits:

  • HP Tru64 UNIX V5.1B PK4
  • HP Tru64 UNIX V5.1A PK7
