HP-UX Advice?

Hey everyone,

I'm new to the community in Toronto, and I want to know if there are any companies that are HP-UX heavy environments. The company I represent is looking for someone with extensive HP-UX experience, and I'd like to know what work experience to look for in resumes!

Thanks very much,

HP-UX version including at least 11i (11.11, 11.22, 11.23). 11.0 might be acceptable. 10.20 is OK but would indicate they haven't worked on anything current for a long while.

Experience using the SAM System Administration utility.

Experience with Veritas filesystem (vxfs - a/k/a OnlineJFS)

Experience with LVM (HP's built in logical volume manager).

Experience with Veritas Volume Manager (VxVM - HP supposedly will discontinue support of LVM in favor of this at some point - Depends on the shop they're going to.)

Knowledge of HP Software Distributor (swinstall, swlist etc...)

Knowlege of HP Glance/GlancePlus/Measureware

Experience with HP Mirror-UX. (Not always necessary but nice to have if they don't use HW RAID to boot from.)

Find out if they have done PA-RISC or Itanium. Most large servers still PA-RISC so Itanium might indicate smaller environment.

Of course it mostly depends on the environment such as:

Omniback/Omniback II (now called DataProtector I think) is the Backup tool made by HP. Not everyone using HP uses it. (In fact I've used Veritas Netbackup instead at most of the HP shops I've worked at.)

MC-ServiceGuard = HP's Clustering Product. Some people (like us) use Veritas Cluster software instead.
