Debmirror – Be independent on Linux
notesbusters    

ToalSystems has finally decided that we have enough Linux servers to create out own mirror site – for multiple Linux releases. Over the last week we created a new Ubuntu mirror site on our internal network and will be adding a new CentOS mirror site as well. Currently we are still debating whether we want to register either or both sites for public use as the discussion is still going on whether we want to “adjust/change” the mirror site and add things of our own into it.  If we really decide to make the mirror site public I will blog it on this site.

 

Here is a short primer on how to set up a Ubuntu mirror site using DEBMIRROR – as opposed to RSYNCMIRROR which is a total copy/replica of the site you decide to pull from (including any back-version they have).

It is worth i if you want to have more control over what you offer your Linux  servers/workstations for updates and what versions you support. I also believe in having control where your machines go for an update … I dislike out internal machines going to outside sites to get updates if I can keep them inside. Also, having been burnt by the two big storms we had in the North East (Irene and Alfred) and which severely impacted our data center and the network connectivity, I like not having to be relicant on critical updated having to access the Internet but rather being able to pull all data down from an internal site.

Open Mic Webcast : Linux for the IBM Sametime Admin (04/09/2014)
Tue, Apr 1st 2014 6:12a   Victor Toal
Marlon Machado posted this on the Sametime blog (link below) yesterday. Since there is allot of Linux all over the place, I suggest this as a webcast to listen to. If you still live in a Windows only server world, it is only a amtter of time until your boss tells you that there are maybe some Linux machines coming your way …. As you probably know by now IBM’s commitment to the Linux platform is broad and deep. That includes, of course, IBM Sametime. We’re steadily expanding an [read] Keywords: admin connections ibm sametime desktop development linux server

WebSphere – The Basics on Security, Directories and Federated Repositories
Sun, Mar 16th 2014 9:13a   Victor Toal
I had promised earlier this year to post more content (other than opinion and news) so I am now catching up on my promise. This post was inspired by a combined WebSphere – IBM Connections review review I did for a client earlier this year, along with some content from my IBM Connections admin training that I offer and that the same client asked me to give after they read my review of their environment. This is the first in a small series of blog-posts on security and configuration in WebSp [read] Keywords: admin connections domino ibm applications interface linux microsoft openoffice password profile properties security server websphere xml
