This book contains 36 chapters and is structured to facilitate readers to grasp concepts, understand implementation procedures, learn command syntax, configuration files and daemons involved, and understand basic troubleshooting. The 36 chapters are divided into three key areas: UNIX Fundamentals, HP-UX System Administration and HP-UX Network Administration. These chapters cover topics that are on HP’s recommended certification courses – UNIX Fundamentals, System and Network Administration I, System and Network Administration II, and HP-UX for Experienced UNIX System Administrators – as well as on official exam objectives list. 1. UNIX Fundamentals (chapters 1 to 6, and 22) covers the basics of UNIX and HP-UX. Most information is not specific to a particular UNIX flavor, rather, includes general UNIX concepts, file manipulation and security techniques, vi editor, shell and awk programming, basic commands and other essential topics. Unlike many other similar books, a chapter on shell scripting is presented after covering HP-UX System Administration area. This is done purposely to provide readers with practical examples based on the knowledge they gain from UNIX Fundamentals and HP-UX System Administration chapters. 2. HP-UX System Administration (chapters 7 to 21) covers the HP-UX-specific system administration concepts and topics including server hardware information and mass storage stack; virtualization technologies and HP-UX installation; software and patch management; user and group administration; LVM and file system administration; EVFS and swap management; system shutdown and startup procedures; kernel configuration and management techniques; backup and restore functions; printer and print request management, job automation and process control; and system logging and performance monitoring. 3. HP-UX Network Administration (chapters 23 to 36) covers HP-UX network and security administration concepts and topics such as OSI and TCP/IP reference models; network hardware overview and LAN interface administration; IP subnetting and routing techniques; basic network testing and troubleshooting; internet services and sendmail; time synchronization (NTP) and resource sharing (NFS, AutoFS and CIFS) services; naming (DNS, NIS and LDAP) services and automated installation techniques; and high-availability concepts and system security tools and practices.
