Equivalent of prtvtoc, dd, ufsdump in HP-UX

Hi,

Need the equivalent commands for HP-UX in Solaris :

a) prtvtoc /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0s0 > c0t0d0s0.vtoc
   In HPUX, is there a "prtvtoc /dev/vg00"  (suppose raw device
   needed instead of /dev/vg00 because in Solaris we use  .../rdsk/...)

b)ufsdump 0uf /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0s0  output_device_or_file
    where output can be /dev/rmt/0  or  filename

c)dd if=/dev/rdsk/c0t0d0s0 of=output
   where output can be tape device or file

For prtvto (Solaris) the close you can get in HP-UX is pvdisplay -v /dev/dsk/C#t#d#
man pvdisplay
to learn more details
Solaris (ufsdump) ==> HP-UX ( fbackup)
man fbackup
to learn more details.
Please have a look at "HP-UX Solaris command mapping":

Thanks yuzh.

Just last few questions  to get the equivalent HP-UX syntax/commands :

What's the equivalent in HP-UX for
a) "ufsdump 0uf dumpfile  /"    (ie backup root)
    (using dump & fbackup)
b) "ufsrestore -ivf dumpfile"   (to do selective restore via ufsrestore)
c)"prtvtoc /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0s2 > partinfo.txt" (to get the partition info for c0t0d0 disk)
d)"prtvtoc /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0s2 < partinfo.txt" (to partition the disk)


Thanks

For backup and recovery, please have a look at the example in:
http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/hpux-data-backup-restore-commands/
also:
 http://docs.hp.com/en/5991-6552/ch04s03.html
BTW, you can also use "cpio" to perform the backup and restore to/from tape/file etc
the usage is the same as Solaris.    It is not 100% equivalent between HP-UX and Solaris.
