Solaris Unix vs HP Unix, Could someone point out the major differences.
I have been performing Support to Solaris Unix for about 6 years, now I am interviewing for a HP Unix position. Could someone point out the major differences? Should it be an easy transition?

solaris and HPUX

I have been a DEC admin for 2 1/2 years and am now a HPUX admin for 2 years.

I did notice some small differences from DEC to HPUX, but no major differences except for some proprietary commands.

Go to this link below and go to the search page and type in +solaris +comparision.

There are some differences like some proprietary commands which may be different but perform the same functions. HPUX uses a different naming convention for disk devices.

The filesystems are fairly similar as well.
