Troubleshooting/Maintenance of HP-UX
Where to get information about problems:
dmesg --> provides a finite list of diagnostic messages
/var/adm/syslog/syslog.log --> system log
/opt/resmon/log/error.log -->
/etc/shutdownlog --> shutdown information
/etc/rc.log --> system startup log
/var/tombstones/ts99 --> crash analysis file
cstm - command line support tool manager 
mstm - menu based support tool manager 
<alt><underlined letter of command>
<tab> --> to move to another portion of the screen, such as the dropdown menu area
Service Processor 
<ctrl> <b> from a serial console
he - help
co - return to console mode (exits the program)
sl - show log
Panic Reboots
Check these files for clues:
Bad disk 
1. Check the syslog (/var/adm/syslog/syslog.log) looking for disk errors.2. Check the ioscan (ioscan -fnC disk), looking for NO_HW rather than Claimed.3. If diaglogd is running then check STM logs (/var/opt/resmon/log/event.log)4. Check the volume group to see if the disk is listed and whether there is any problemwith it's status (vgdisplay -v | more)5. Check lvmtab to see if the disk is supposed to be in a volume group (strings/etc/lvmtab | more)
Filesystem do not mount after a reboot
1. Reactivate the Volume Group --> vgchange -a y /dev/<volume group>2. Remount the filesystems --> mount -a
3. If still no success then perform a filesystem check --> fsck /dev/<volumegroup>/<logicalvolume>4. Remount the filesystems --> mount -a5. Check to see if all the filesystems are there:a) bdf b) compare with /etc/fstab
Filesystem full
du -kx / | sort -rn | moredu -akx | sort -nr | moreShows directories on the local filesystem and how much space they are taking up
NFS mount - Permission Denied
1. Check to see if the format of the /etc/exports file is correct on the server that is the nfsserver.2. exportfs -av to export the filesystem3. Check the /etc/fstab file on the client to make sure that it is correct4. /usr/sbin/showmount -e <server> on the client to show what is being exported5. To bypass the /etc/exports file execute the following on the nfs server:
exportfs -i -orw <filesystem>.NFS Server
