Re February Meeting

Ok,
Time to apologize yet again, but due to the aggressive time schedule
I am currently under to complete a ridiculous number of tasks before
Feb. 25th, plus the fact that I can only work on some of my servers now
before 9am and after 5pm I am going to have to postpone again. Good news
is.. Feb. 25th was a date set back in December, and after that I am back
to regular working hours (like I believe that)

So…. as for topics
Seems that I have been involved in some of the more convoluted network
infrastructure designs for the past couple of years, so I will probably
talk about the different methods of network redundancy on Solaris
servers. Network redundancy the cheap hard way or the easy, more costly
way :) If your interested in any other aspects of putting a light out
data center together, let me know and I will try and put together a bit
more.

So .. my tips for tonight
1. If you are running Solaris Servers with the UltraSparc IIe processor
(64bit only cpu) make sure you have applied the latest patch bundle.
There is a nasty bug that was not addressed in the Solaris 10/01 release
of Solaris 8 (guess what Im doing tonight)

  1. If you have enabled SNMP on any of your network devices that is
    accessible from the internet… You may be at risk.
