I am posting this on behalf of Steve Davidek and others (including
myself) who have tried to put together a simple MPE survey. Your
responses will make a difference in our patching approach.
Many thanks in advance,
Jeff Vance, vCSY
Working with HP and Interex, the HP User Advocacy Steering Committee has
put together a survey on MPE, specifically aimed at MPE 9x7 and other
issues regarding an understanding of your MPE/iX patching and/or
updating plans and requirements over the next 1-2 years.
Please take a few minutes to follow the link below to fill out the
This survey was put together after comments on this issue were seen on
the 3000L and in the annual World Wide Survey of HP Customers that was
completed last month. Thanks to Jeff Vance & Debbie Lawson-Kirkwood
from HP for their support in getting the survey together.
Please note that you will need to create a login to the HP User Advocacy
site to fill out the survey. This allows us to capture your
demographics once and validate the survey for HP. It also allows you to
post issues and also to vote on existing issues with out the need to
fill out demographics again.
Note, there is an open comments box at the end of the survey where you
can provide additional information to HP.
After you fill out the survey, take time to look around our newly
designed web site. The HP User Advocacy Steering Committee offers a
quick voice into HP. FYI, the Interex HP-UX SysAdmin SIG has moved
their SIB balloting to the site for the past two years. They have had
great success getting items looked at by HP and also getting answers to
the requests and also other issues that have come up over the year. In
fact, you can submit and issue today and if 5 other people "vote" for
the same issue, HP has made a commitment to look at the issue and
respond within 30 days (even if it is to say they are looking into it!).
Also, feel free to e-mail or call me with questions on the site, etc.
We've just launched the newest version of the site this past Monday and
we hope we've gotten all the kinks out :)
