Who here is a HPUX admin? HELP!
Posted on 2004-04-29
I'd like all the HPUX admins to give me a straight answer. If you're certified, even better. I've been trying to troubleshoot printing with my less than helpful HPUX admin. Today he's weaseled out of assisting me because of these answers:
"HP-UX does not use an ARP table. You have received erroneous information."
Is this true, or is he got a god complex and refuses to be upstaged by you guys?
"HP Jet Direct is the only interface with HP-UX that we use. No need to worry because you can start whenever you want. I do not need MAC addresses as HP-UX deals only with IP addresses. If you want to make ARP entries containing MAC addresses, it's is a Cisco thing."
I'D LIKE TO KNOW IF THIS IS ALL TRUE. DOES HPUX ONLY WORK WELL WITH HP JETDIRECTS? DOES HPUX NOT USE AN ARP TABLE - ONLY IP'S? HPUX HAS NO RECORD OF MAC ADDRESSES FOR PRINTSERVERS?
This guy is an egotistical pompous ___ and nobody in my company doubt his Unix knowlege because there is no other unix gurus. If you submit any other answer that applies to Linux, SCO, he'll say it's wrong because HPUX is different.
