Dealing with system problems—from user login failures to server crashes--is a critical part of a system administrator's job. A down system can cost a business thousands of dollars per minute. But there is little or no information available on how to troubleshoot and correct system problems; in most cases, these skills are learned in an ad-hoc manner, usually in the pressure-cooker environment of a crisis. This is the first book to address this lack of information. The authors (both experienced Tru64 UNIX support engineer for Compaq) systematically present the techniques and tools needed to find and fix system problems. The first part of the book presents the general principles and techniques needed in system troubleshooting. These principles and techniques are useful not only for UNIX system administrators, but for anyone who needs to find and fix system problems. After this foundation, the authors describe troubleshooting tools used in the UNIX environment. The remainder of the book covers specific areas of the Tru64 UNIX operating system in detail: listing common problems, their causes, how to detect them, and how to correct them. Each chapter includes a "Before You Call Support" section that details the most important things to check and correct before it's necessary to call Compaq technical support. The authors also include decision trees to help the reader systematically isolate particular problem types. · "Before You Call Tech Support" sections · Tables and diagrams for quick access to precise data · Decision trees to help choose the best way to troubleshoot a particular problem
But what has made this book the guide system administrators turn to over and over again is not just the sheer volume of valuable information it provides, but the clear, useful way the information is presented.

Since its first printing in October 1991, Essential System Administration has been the definitive practical guide for Unix and Linux system administrators. The book talks about all the usual administrative tools that Unix and Linux provide-and also shows how to use those tools in smarter and more efficient ways. Author AEleen Frisch expands coverage of networking, electronic mail, security, and kernel configuration-topics of increasing importance to administrators. It also includes coverage of services such as LDAP, PAM, DHCP, and DNS, and discussions of many important open source tools, including SSH, Cfengine, Amanda, RRDTool, and Cricket. The latest versions of all major Unix platforms, including Red Hat Linux 7.3 and SuSE Linux 8, Solaris 8 and 9, FreeBSD 4.6, AIX 5, HP-UX 11 and 11i, and Tru64 5.1, have been thoroughly reviewed and tested. You will find this book indispensable whether you are responsible for a large, shared computer system or a network of workstations, or you use a standalone Unix or Linux system and have found that the fine line between a user and an administrator has vanished. And even if you aren't directly or solely responsible for system administration, you'll find that understanding important administrative functions will greatly increase your ability to use Unix effectively.
