I haven’t had a chance to write a new post in a while because I’ve been busy working at Orange. I am mostly involved in managing and maintaining Microsoft Windows 2k and 2k3, however we still have some of the legacy WinNT 4.0 nightmares every now and then. I have been working on HP Open View Operations version 8 involving some auditing on our servers.
I have finally become Expert in configuration of iLo Management Boards for the HP Bladservers also have had training by HP for HP BladeSystem Administrator
I am also quite keen on learning to use the magic of BladeLogic, ( running jobs for package deployments)
Apart from that I’ve been playing with VM Ware ESX server and also the VM Ware Infrastructure 2.0 managing quite a lot Virtual Machines, should admit Virtualization is really good fun. I am looking forward for training on VM Ware which will give me an insight how this technology mingles with the physical hardware.
In my spare time I have started working on Linux Administration, I have recently build a CentOS Server which is the exact binary of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Not to forget that this is a free distribution unlike RHEL, the good thing about this Linux version is this is quite robust unlike Fedora family.
My next experiment on another famous brand of Unix system called FreeBSD, Although it took me considerable amount of time to figure out the terminology of the Operation system itself.
Yes how can I forget to mention! just creating a simple user is also a nightmare on this Unix flavor. Thus I have decided that I will be loyal to Mr Red Hat. J
In addition to this, I have few trainings lined up which I am looking forward for.
