This is the definitive guide to installing and administering HP-UX 11i Version 2 in any environment, on both HP 9000 and HP Integrity server families.
Drawing on 18 years of on-site HP-UX consulting experience, Marty Poniatowski offers unparalleled practical insight into running HP-UX 11i efficiently and reliably, illuminating features even experienced HP-UX sysadmins find confusing. Poniatowski organizes this book around your day-to-day needs and your system's lifecycle. He begins with in-depth coverage of installation and bootup, then walks through everything from LVM and kernel configuration through networking. He especially focuses on the capabilities and tools that make HP-UX unique—and how you can use them to save time and money. Coverage includes
