HPUX Cheatsheet?

I'm starting a new job where I'm going to need to work with HPUX again. Haven't done much with it since about 11.0 and haven't touched a UNIX system in about 4 years.

I still remember the basics but would like a short list of useful admin commands to refresh my memory (and so I don't look like a total idiot the first time I log on).

Can anyone point me to a good site?

Hi Ron:

I think you will find the Managing Systems and Workgroups guide a useful review:

Re: HPUX Cheatsheet?

I have attached a doc I inherited from another sysadmin. I have made updates to it here and there. Feel free to do with it as you will. Some of the info maybe 10.20 specific. Anyway, I hope it provides some info for you.
"The difference between me and you? I will read the man page." and "Respect the hat." and "You could just do a search on ITRC, you don't need to start a thread on a topic that's been answered 100 times already." Oh, and "What. no points???"

Hi Ron,

See this thread:
http://forums1.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=1034507

When it comes to learning new commands, I like to do an 'ls' on '/usr/bin', '/usr/sbin', or another directory in ${PATH}, choose an unfamiliar command, and look up the relevant man page.

Yogeeraj,

Have you got one for HPUX 11? That one just talks about 10 and I'm sure they are running the latest and greatest or close to it.

Re: HPUX Cheatsheet?

hi,

Geoff:
Better post them on a shared location. You could talk to SEP, Bill Hassel or even HP and arrange for a location where they can be posted and made available to the whole community here.

Just some thoughts!

kind regards

Hi Ron,

Unfortunately, i dont have the updated version.

If you have a close look, you will see that they are conceptual and unlikely to have changed in the newer versions of the document (if any)
