Database cryptographic functions

Eloquence uses the OpenSSL product for cryptographic functions. To use the current database password encryption method or the database encryption functionality, the HP-UX OpenSSL software must be installed.

The HP-UX OpenSSL software may be obtained from the HPE Software Center at HP-UX openssl product. At the time of this writing openSSL version 3.0 is current. (In case that the link becomes invalid, go to https://myenterpriselicense.hpe.com/ and search for OPENSSL11I).


Eloquence is available as a depot package and is installed with the HP-UX swinstall utility.

Eloquence installation files available for download from the Eloquence web site are compressed with gzip and must be uncompressed before installation.

This Eloquence depot file should be used for HP Integrity systems (Itanium platform). It installs both 32 bit and 64 bit components. This build requires HP-UX 11.31 or later.

The asterisk (*) denotes the version of the installation archive. Higher numbers indicate a newer installation archive.

Installing the depot file

As "superuser" (root), follow the steps below to install the Eloquence software.
  1. Unpack the archive at a temporary location, such as /tmp or /var/tmp.
    /usr/contrib/bin/gzip -d Eloquence-B0840-*.depot.gz
    This uncompresses the depot file Eloquence-B0840-*.depot.gz to Eloquence-B0840-*.depot. The compressed archive file is deleted.

  2. Run "swinstall" by typing:
    /usr/sbin/swinstall -s /tmp/Eloquence-B0840-*.depot \*
    where /tmp/Eloquence-B0840-*.depot is the absolute path of the Eloquence-B0840-*.depot file.

Automatic startup of Eloquence server processes during system boot is configured in the /etc/rc.config.d/eloquence84 configuration file.

Uninstalling Eloquence B.08.40

To uninstall Eloquence B.08.40 from your system, please make sure the software is not currently used. The following command may be used to shut down the Eloquence background processes.

The software is removed using the HP-UX swremove utility. Please login as root and run swremove as below
