Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you're using HP-UX 10.x, then this is one of the better books that's out there. It's a good reference for a medium-level SysAdmin with a few HP 9000 servers to keep up with, but beginners and experienced SysAdmins can benefit from Jay Shah' clear and concise style here. There are a number of times that I've used it (let's see... when you 'tar' a file, you use the... uh... er... now which switch was that?) as a quick reference for one or another of those commands that we all know but forgot a particular command at the moment. Good, basic coverage of TCP/IP topics as well.
If your primary HP-UX environment is 11.x, then you may wish to consider another book, but for all those still using HP-UX 10.x or earlier versions, this is a gem. I just wish that Mr. Shah would update it to include the newer versions!

Format: Paperback
I'm a Sys Admin for a large corporation and I think this book is WELL worth the money. It is clearly and concisely written, and has the best section on NFS mounting that I have ever read. This book is NOT for beginners, but is rather helpful for those of intermediate to advanced HPUX skill levels. Overall, a great read...and a reasonable price too!

Format: Paperback
I was given this book when I started a new job as a systems administrator. I am new to the computer field, therefore I don't have a huge understanding of certain aspects of computers and their operations. If you don't have years of computer, system administration, experience on a different platform, don't buy this book. This book is for experienced administrators who get the lingo. If you are a person like me who needs a thorough walk through, i.e. first do this, second, etc., then don't buy this book. It is for experienced admins who need to quickly look up something that was forgotten. NOT FOR "TRUE" BEGINNERS!

Format: Paperback
... because it tells you how to boot single user and change the root password (just because you feel like it; a professional genius like me would never forget the root password). A lot more compact than the genuine HP manuals and almost as useful. See my full review at [...]
