What have we learnt

What Have We Learnt

  • Unix administration is not easy

    • administration shells help but are not a complete answer

    • Unix administrators have to learn a lot about Unix

  • Different systems are administered in different ways

    • RedHat / SuSE

    • SVR4 (Solaris 2, HP/UX, IRIX)

    • BSD (SunOS 4.1)

    • OSF/1 (AIX, Digital Unix)

  • Unix contains lots of sub-systems

    • each sub-system has its own method of administration

    • no consistency between sub-systems


What next

What Next?

  • Concentrate on a small part of Unix

    • learn to administer this part first

    • gradually work with more and more areas

  • RTM (Read The Manuals)
