9780131448544: HP-UX CSA: Official Study Guide and Reference (HP Professional)

Following HP's merger with Compaq, HP has redesigned their certification program with a scheduled re-launch of early 2004. As part of this, the existing HP-UX exam is being updated for HP-UX 11i and will contain about 15-20% new material. The name of this exam is now Certified System Administrator (CSA): HP-UX. This book maps directly to this course, divided into the following three sections. UNIX Fundamentals - Covers the basics of UNIX. The information is not specific to a particular UNIX version, but rather includes general concepts and commands, file manipulation and security, shell and awk programming, vi editor, and other topics. HP-UX System Administration - Covers the first level of HP-UX-specific system and network administration concepts and topics including management and administration of user accounts, devices, disks, file systems, backups, restores, system recovery, automated jobs, swap space, printers, etc. It also covers the system boot process, kernel reconfiguration, software/patch management, OE installation, etc. HP-UX Network Administration - Covers advanced HP-UX system and network administration concepts and topics like TCP/IP, IP routing, IP subnetting, UNIX network troubleshooting tools, system startup services, NFS, AutoFS, NIS, DNS, NTP, ARPA/Berkeley services, software depot management, etc. This book is a great study guide for those seeking certification as well as a handy desk reference for after the exam.
