Author Biography: David Miller

David Donald Miller is currently employed at Raytheon Systems in Tucson, AZ, as a Principal Software Engineer. For more than 15 years he was a computer science professor at Bemidji State University (in Bemidji, MN), where he created and managed an OpenVMS cluster laboratory. Mr. Miller also has 20 years of aerospace experience in various software engineering positions. He is the author of OpenVMS Operating System Concepts from Digital Press, and is currently at work with Steve Hoffman on the second edition of Lawrence Baldwin’s OpenVMS System Management Guide, forthcoming from Digital Press.

Book Synopsis

Getting Started with OpenVMS System Management gives new VMS system managers a jumpstart in managing this powerful and reliable operating system. Dave Miller describes the essentials of what an OpenVMS System Manager will have to manage. He defines areas of OpenVMS System Management and describes why each is important and how it fits into the larger management task. Even though some OpenVMS management concepts are unique (for instance quotas), many concepts (such as account creation) have counterparts in UNIX and Windows NT. So, wherever possible, Miller points out to his readers the parallel to other systems.

The book is intended as a precursor to Baldwin's OpenVMS System Management Guide and various OpenVMS documents. Thus it refers the reader to other books for the detailed management steps. Getting Started with OpenVMS System Management is a great introduction to the material Steve Hoffman and Dave Miller are revising for the OpenVMS System Management Guide, 2E.
