Crash Recovery

Could someone please point me to documentation for restore/recovery in the event of hardware crash. Not emergency yet, but there is no recovery plan in house at this time. Pretty scary.
Thank You. Tim.

Re: Crash Recovery

If you're talking about file system backup and recovery, there is a chapter on "Backup and restoring Data" in the "HPUX System Administration Tasks" document. It basically describes the use of fbackup and frecover.

Re: Crash Recovery

Hi Tim,

Try Ignite/UX, which normally is available
via, but seems to be
unreachable today.

Ignite/UX lets you create a so called recovery tape, which is bootable and
can be used to (even unattended) recover
your system.

Hope this answer your question

Kinds regards,

Re: Crash Recovery


I would advise to look to LVM (disk crash).
Make sure to have every part of your system in duplicate.

For very high availability systems I would recommend working with clusters and using MC/ServiceGuard. (See HP Education)
