"This book covers not only included OpenVMS commands and utilities, but also automation tools that are not supplied as part of OpenVMS. Users new to system management will find the sections on console details, startup, shutdown, software installation, and licensing particularly helpful. Even experienced system managers can use this book to check against their own practices or as a reference." --Michael D. Duffy, OpenVMS software engineer

"This book is much more than a technical guide to managing OpenVMS systems. It covers key OpenVMS system management concepts in a form that describes what operations need to be performed, why they need to be performed, and the commands used to perform them." --Gaitan D'Antoni, Technical Architect for Application Development Technology , HP OpenVMS Systems Group
