Unfortunately not. You need real hardware.

Hope this helps!

Shalom,

My HP-UX simulator is an old HP-UX box.

I suggest: Ebay.

Re: Need HP-UX simulator

If you do not have access to the hardware, regardless how good the simulator is, you can not gain any real world experience. For instance, if someone put an hpux server, accessible over the internet via ssh (or god forbid telnet) where you can have root access, it won't do you any good if you can not see the cards it carries and pluggng in and out different cables while you practice your commands specific to hpux. If all you need is to practice UNIX commands, not necessarily hpux, then I'd suggest googling the term "free shell accounts". There are plenty of them out in the wild.

Re: Need HP-UX simulator

Hi Kumar,

1) no simulator seen around
2) Depends on what do you expect :
a) purchase hp-ux supported hardware
b) Linux etc
c) Install unix simulator for basic/interm, like Cygewin, even comes with Xwin support,Apache and other goodies

I suggest to use Linux. You can run it on a PC, you don't need to have anything very powerful. It's easy to install and although not identical in command syntax to HP-UX, it's a reasonable start to get into Unix commands and shells and has LVM etc. Once you get used to one system, it's not too difficult to pick up commands specific to other platforms. If it really annoys you, you could get used to the "alias" command :-

alias bdf='df -k'

Re: Need HP-UX simulator

Hi Kumar,
This was a major problem i also had when i started UX. I even asked this same question from a HP instructor when i had a training @ HP, but the answer is NO.
The reason for this is UX is designed for special hardware design (Which HP call Cell Based Computing). So its tightly coupled with Hardware. This is the reason that we have to follow different methods when installing different OS.
So only option is to buy at least a B9000 or less workstation.
If you really planing to buy
consider to go with 9.0 GB X 2 atlest
and GSP card.

Good Luck..!
