HPUX 11.23

Hi there,

I am primarily a 9000 Hardware Engineer but aim to increase my Sys Admin/Scripting skills to look after some IA64 boxes. Does anyone know of any decent books I can follow in order to learn Posix shell scripting/ HPUX 11.23 Sys Admin?
Thanks and Best Regards,

~L~

I have "HP-UX 11i Version 2 System Administration: HP Integrity and HP 9000 Servers" by Marty Poniatowski.
Its pretty good.

Thanks I've got that on order :) Does anyone know any good online tutorial pages for programming in the POSIX shell? I'm starting out from the bare basics!

Re: HPUX 11.23

Best bet is to dig around google, until you find what you are looking for, also search for ksh scrips rather than posix. I've had more joy with this.

A few I have used are:

AND
http://b62.tripod.com/doc/docksh.htm

practice practice practice, The problem I have is getting motivated. I need a real life problem to solve to be able to create a script. I find it hard to simple write a script to learn scripting.

Hi:

There are many good books. A Google search for "shell scripting" will return a multitude of free tutorials.

A quick-read, free book can be found here on HP's web:

http://www.docs.hp.com/en/B2355-90046/B2355-90046.pdf

An excellent site for scripts, in general, is:

http://www.shelldorado.com/

The site hosta good tutorials, guides to sound practices, and a fair number of scripts that allow you to see how someone else attacked a problem. Of course, there is also this Forum :-)

Regards!
