server documentation

Hello All,
I am in the process of putting together documentation on our HP-UX servers (1-N class, 2- K class, and 1- L class) for disaster recovery and general maintenance and need to make sure that I do not miss anything that should be included.

I would appreciate any input on the best method to compile this data and if there are any templates available to use.

Thanks,
Jason

Re: server documentation

Hi Jason:

Since I'm sure you run regularly Ignite's 'make_tape_recovery', you have a gratuitous "manifest" which is part of an excellent documentation foundation. See:

/var/opt/ignite/recovery/latest/manifest

Regards!

Re: server documentation

2 methods I use for documenting a system:

1) /opt/ignite/bin/print_manifest - If you don't have this, download and install the latest version of Ignite/UX

2) cfg2html - you can get that here: http://members.tripod.com/rose_swe/cfg/cfg.html

Re: server documentation

Yes print_manifest is great . You can also get the sysinfo script from this site :
http://hpux.asknet.de/hppd/hpux/Sysadmin/alpha.html

and it will give you all the system information .
