9780131400009: Linux on HP Integrity Servers: A System Administrator's Guide

This is the only book on the market that covers Linux on HP Itanium systems.HP plans to replace all of their high end, precision architecture systems withItanium systems within the next two years. According to IDC, HP continues tomaintain its long-standing No. 1 position in the rapidly growing Linux servermarket across all server platforms with 31.7 percent customer revenue shareworldwide.This book is divided into two parts. Part 1, Linux System Administration,begins with extensive coverage of booting HP Itanium-based systems. This iscrucial as these systems can run Linux, HP-UX, and Windows Server 2003simultaneously, and because the boot process is substantially different than onprevious systems. Poniatowski also covers the HP Enablement Kit for Linux, aset of tools that provides a framework for installing, configuring, andrecovering a Linux distribution on HP Itanium 2 systems. Finally, Part 1 coversmany additional system administration topics such as startup, backup,networking, kernel, and so on.For those coming to Linux on Itanium from a non-UNIX background (such asWindows, MPE, and VMS sysadmins), Part 2 provides coverage of Linux tools,the Bash shell, shell programming, and many others. This section provides allof the basics on using Linux for those who don't have Linux experience.

From the Back Cover:

The Expert Guide to Installing and Running Linux on HP Integrity Itanium® Systems

Companies are increasingly turning to Linux on HP Integrity systems for high-performance computing, large enterprise and database applications, and 64-bit application development. However, Linux administration in the HP Integrity's Itanium® 2-based environment is significantly different than on conventional IA-32 platforms. Now, there's a comprehensive guide to administering HP Integrity systems running Linux. HP Solution Architect and Linux/Unix expert Marty Poniatowski walks you through every essential tool and technique, from installation and bootup, compiling kernels to building clusters. Coverage includes:

  • A primer on basic Linux system administration for those migrating from other environments
  • The HP Integrity boot process: EFI, POSSE, and the Management Processor
  • Using the HP Enablement Kit for Linux to install, configure, and recover Linux on HP Itanium 2 systems
  • Using Red Hat Package Manager (RPM) and LILO
  • Working with the GNOME and KDE user interfaces
  • Adding and partitioning SCSI disks on HP Integrity Servers
  • Maintaining file systems with fsck, e2fsck, inodes, and Superblock
  • Compiling and tuning Linux kernels
  • Linux system startup and shutdown scripts for HP Integrity systems
  • Understanding, configuring, and using Linux networking
  • Working with netstat, route, ipconfig, iptables, nslookup, and other key commands
  • Managing users, groups, processes, backup/restore, and other basic system administration tasks
  • Running Samba to deliver Windows file and print services
  • Running Linux, HP-UX and Windows Server 2003 concurrently on the same HP Integrity system
  • Shell programming with the Linux bash shell

HP co-developed the Itanium architecture, and HP Labs scientists maintain the Itanium Linux kernel. This is the only book to leverage HP's unique knowledge about administering Linux on Itanium platforms. It will be indispensable for every sysadmin running Linux on HP Integrity or other Itanium systems -- regardless of their experience with Linux, HP-UX, or other UNIX systems.
