From the Inside Flap:

PrefaceAbout The Book

The change in name from HP-UX 11 to HP-UX 11i (i for Internet) reflects the intense focus of HP-UX on the Internet. Whether your HP-UX-based application is directly connected to the Internet or not, chances are the the Internet has made it more critical. Some of the most "traditional" applications that are many layers deep within companies have still been affected by the Internet. For example, it used to be that human resources information was kept under lock and key and was totally inaccessible from the outside world - now we're posting job openings on-line. Pricing information was shared only between sales people and their valued customers - now we have Internet-based auctions. I'm sure you've seen the impact the Internet has had on your HP-UX applications, making them more critical to the success of your business and making your knowledge as an HP-UX system administrator more valuable as well.

The paradox of the Internet age is that you need printed books more than ever to get your system administration job done. Athough system administrators use the Internet to obtain a lot of useful information, books are more essential than ever to keeping up with advancements in operating systems. The HP-UX 11i System Administration Handbook and Toolkit is here to give you the information you need to get your HP-UX systems up and running quickly.

As in all of my books, I cover what my customers tell me are the most critical aspects of HP-UX system administration. You can cover a lot in 1500 pages - but not everything. I carefully decided what material to cover in this book. Most of the material in the book is new or updated information from previous books. There are many advancements in the area of system administration that are new in HP-UX 11i.

One of the requests I received since my last book was published was to cover more on system setup before booting the HP-UX operating system. I now cover the boot process (PDC, ISL, hpux), Secure Web Console setup, Guardian Service Processor (GSP) setup, and other important setup topics in the first chapter.

As with my other books, this book includes a blueprint from which you can work. Many tips and recommendations are included in the book from my experience of working with HP-UX, as well as what I have learned working with many HP-UX system administrators over the years.

No matter how detailed a training course or manual, it always leaves out some of the specific tasks you'll need to perform. Instead of getting mired down in excruciating detail, I'll provide the common denominator of information every HP-UX system administrator needs to know. I'll provide you with all the essential information you'll need so that you'll be able to take on new and unforeseen system administration challenges with a good knowledge base.

You may very well find that you need additional resources as your system administration challenges increase. No matter what anyone tells you, no single resource can answer everything you need to know about HP-UX system administration. Just when you think you know everything there is to know about HP-UX system administration, you'll be asked to do something you've never dreamed of before. That's why I'm not trying to be all things to all people with this book. I cover what everyone needs to know and leave topics in specific areas to other people. You may need training courses, manuals, other books, or consulting services to complete some projects. In any case, I'll bet that every topic in this book would be worthwhile to know for every HP-UX system administrator. HP-UX 11i System Administration Handbook and Toolkit covers tasks all system administrators need to perform: It shows you how to perform each task, tells why you are doing it, and explains how it is affecting your system. Much of the knowledge I have gained has come from the fine HP-UX manual set and the concise on-line manual pages. Some of the procedures in the book are based on those in the HP-UX manual set and some of the command summaries in the book are based on the on-line manual pages. I am grateful for all of the hard work my HP associates have put into both the manual set and the on-line manual pages.

Speaking of examples, there have been many new HP 9000 hardware advancements made since my last book was published. Most of the examples have been updated to include new hardware, however, there are hundreds of thousands of existing systems that will be upgraded to HP-UX 11i so you will see examples on some older systems as well. There are also many system administration aspects of HP-UX that haven't changed since HP-UX 10.x, so the examples would apply on any hardware.

I hope you enjoy reading the book and learning the material as much as I did writing it.Marty Poniatowski
marty_poniatowski@hpOrganization of the Book

The HP-UX 11i System Administration Handbook and Toolkit is composed of the chapters shown in the Table of Contents and on the inside cover of the book. This book is divided into the following three sections:

Section 1 — HP-UX

Section 2 — UNIX

Section 3 —

Windows and HP-UX Interoperability

I have Section 2 due to the many requests I received to provide UNIX background for those readers with limited exposure to UNIX. Thus, this is a complete HP-UX system administration book, including this UNIX background. Relevant URLs

There are many Web sites that can assist you in your HP-UX system administration endeavors. I have listed some of the more prominent HP-UX-related Web sites below as they existed at the time of this writing:

IT Resource Center

(This is essential for every HP-UX administrator): itrc

Technical documentation, including most all HP-UX documents:

docs.hp

Software depot home page:

software.I have received a great deal of positive feedback on the inclusion of manual pages in my previous books. Many readers find it helpful to have the manual pages in the book to refer to when reading it when there is no system available to check on a command (apparently a lot of people are reading my books while not at the office).

The manual pages included in the book are for HP-UX 10.x. This is done only for formatting reasons - the 10.x manual pages looked much better when inserted into the book. There are minimal differences between the manual pages of 10.x and 11i for the commands I have included in this book.

When a command is used for which there is an online manual page included in the book, the following information appears in the margin:

This is a "man page" block, which includes the man page icon, the command name, in this case isl, and the chapter number in which the online manual page appears, in this case Chapter 1.

The Table of Contents contains a complete list of the man pages appearing at the end of each chapter. The man pages for a command appear in the chapter to which the command is most applicable, even if it is not the first chapter in which the command is used. Commands pertaining to performance, for instance, have their man pages in the performance chapter, even if those commands are mentioned in an earlier chapter.
