Maintenance of Tru64 unix

Hi I am going to do a software maintenance of Tru64 5.1B and 4.0f system .

I always do a:

# cd /var/adm

# cd /

# find / -name crash -print

cd /var/cluster/members/member0/adm/crash

remove crashes if are present

Some other file that I can clean with security with out that damage the system.

Thank you ..

One that I can think of are the 'core' files. Application could leave behind core file if they exit due to unexpected error. So, you could do a 'find' and look for these files and get rid of them.

Re: Maintenance of Tru64 unix


do not do > on open files. This may bring problems, if the process having the file open writes again. You will get a file with the old length but the rest is garbage.
Use cat /dev/null > logile
Under 5.1 you can force the binary error logger to switch the file, save the old one and start a new one by sending it an USR1 signal.
kill -USR1 `cat /var/run/`
See man binlogd.
