HP-UX System Configuration Collection Script.

Hi,

I am looking for a script that collects system config information for future reference. It should collect information such as "swapinfo", "vgdisplay"...etc.

Ignite-UX has a command called print_manifest. But the info it collects is not comprehensive enough.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Re: HP-UX System Configuration Collection Script.

A good place for such scripts I've found (apart from ftp.hp.com) is this one:

http://www.introcomp.co.uk/hpux/index.html

It has scripts already written, so no need to write your own.

Hope this helps.

Scott.

Hi,


I'd also recommend the sysinfo utility - available at:

http://hpux.cs.utah.edu/hppd/hpux/Sysadmin/sysinfo-3.3.1/

Get the pre-compiled version. Highly recommended. Gives complete details on firmware, disk pathing, LVM info, etc.

HTH,
Jeff
