I'm having trouble installing HP CIM Extension agent on an HP-UX 11.11. I'm a novice at this so please bear with me.
I went to HP web site and found the agent installation depot, copied the file to a directory on the HP-UX.  Then I run # swinstall -s APPQcime.depot APPQcime in the directory where I copied the depot.  I received an error message "sh: swinstall: not found".

    Try doing 'where swinstall' to see if the swinstall is found in your $PATH environment.

    SWinstall is usually found under /usr/sbin/swinstall

    I have gone a lot further this time, but still received an error when executing the swinstall.  

    $ ./swinstall -s /tmp/se/AppQcime.depot APPQcime

    swinstall needs to be run as either 'sudo' or root.
