HP 9000 827S

I have an HP 9000 827S server running
HP-UX A.08.02 and I need to do some
things I don't know how to do:

1 - Check the IP address currently
assigned to the network card

2 - Change (if necessary) the IP
address assigned to the card

3 - Delete some files off of one
of the volumes

If I run a bdf I get:

/dev/dsk/c3d0s10 125743 123103 109% /
/dev/dsk/c1d0s7 73319 46864 71% /u4
/dev/dsk/c1d0s8 1090990 485468 49% /u2
/dev/dsk/c2d0s7 73319 24257 37% /u3
/dev/dsk/c2d0s8 1090990 898373 91% /u1
/dev/dsk/c3d0s0 23447 9 0% /u5
/dev/dsk/c3d0s8 1090990 231092 24% /usr

I can't tell if I have a disk that
is over capacity, or a disk that has
failed to some degree. The kbytes says
125743, the used says 123103, the avail
says -9903 and the capacity says 109%.

I would appreciate any help I can get.

Someone gave me the following command
to get the network config:


This doesn't work on my server. There
is not rc.config.d in the /etc directory.

Re: HP 9000 827S


Believe you can find the ip in the /etc/netlinkrc but this a long ago :-)

For your second question. Run a find command in the root and search for large files.

# find / -type f -syze +10000 -xdev -exec ll {} \;

Hope this helps,

Re: HP 9000 827S

I got the IP address assigned,
I had to use ifconfig.

I have run the command you
suggested, but I'm not finding
any large files that meet the
parameters of that command.

Re: HP 9000 827S

Do you still run DOS on your PC's? HP-UX 8.x is so old, it is not at all year 2000 safe! Long ago, it had support discontinued from HP. HP-UX bdf lies to you about real disk utilization (at least in that release), as by default only 90% of the real space is available to non-root users, this 90% is reported as if it were all the space available. Only root can access the last 10%. So if you divide 100 by 90, you get 111%. That is the limit you can reach if you are root and start filling up a disk. I know, I've done it, and the system gets very, very slow. Anytime an HFS file system gets a anywhere near this full, it gets slow.
You might try sam to configure the network, but I can't remember enough about HP-UX 8 and have no CD's to load to play with it to provide commands. Read the man page on ifconfig if it is there.
