AIX versus HP-UX daemons

Hi all,

Can anyone tell me what the equivalent HP-UX deamons are for the following AIX ones :

'/usr/sbin/dpid2','3.1', #AIX
'/usr/lib/errdemon','3.1',#AIX
'/usr/sbin/portmap','3.1',#AIX
'/usr/sbin/qdaemon','3.1',#AIX
'/usr/sbin/srcmstr','0.1',# AIX
'/usr/sbin/syncd','3.1',#AIX should this be /usr/sbin/syncer on HPUX
'/usr/sbin/uprintfd','0.1',# AIX
'/usr/sbin/writesrv','3.1',#AIX
'/usr/sbin/xntpd','3.1',#AIX

Many thanks in advance
I'll allocate points out as neccesary

Cheers

Russ

Re: AIX versus HP-UX daemons

dpid = snmpd
errdaemon = syslogd
portmap = portmap
qdaemon = lpstat (completely different though)
srcmstr = none
syncd = syncer
uprintfd = don't think there is one
writesrv = doesn't exist but not needed
xntpd = xntpd

Please don't be upset if this is not entirely correct, it's been several years since I touched an AIX box

The link that you supplied doesn;t work. It just says 'system unavailble' .....

made me chuckle after reading your replay saying 'this might help' !! ... not much I'm afraid

Any chance of checking it for me? Cheers

Re: AIX versus HP-UX daemons

Mark was almost right, but:

dpid = is a peer snmpd daemon used to talk to old routers. Its a legacy protocol that I bet you won't use, and besides it causes lots of security problems.
errdaemon = syslogd. AIX also has the syslog, but its hardware error reporting is much more sofisticated. There is no HP-UX equivelant.

qdaemon = lpstat (completely different though). AIX printing is based upon the BSD lpd, but it has been greatly enhanced to improve printing. HP-UX only has the "lpd/printer" daemons.

srcmstr is an extension to AIX that lets you handle multiple daemon processes so that they all look and feel the same. In practice it doesn't really do much apart from allow you to deal with processes by catagory/group. In HP-UX you simply use ps etc, and start/stop them like any other process.

writesrv = Is only used if you want to use the write command to send and receive messages in realt time. This is of little practical use, and is a big security hole.

I hope this helps.
