System Startup and Shutdown Mechanism

Startup and shutdown scripts for HP-UX 11.x are based on a mechanism that separates the actual startup and shutdown scripts from configuration information. In order to modify the way your system starts or stops, you don't have to modify scripts, which in general is considered somewhat risky; you can instead modify configuration variables. The startup and shutdown sequence is based on an industry standard that is similar to many other UNIX-based systems, so your knowledge of HP-UX applies to many other systems.

Startup and shutdown are going to become increasingly more important to you as your system administration work becomes more sophisticated. As you load and customize more applications, you will need more startup and shutdown knowledge. What I do in this section is give you an overview of startup and shutdown and the commands you can use to control your system.
