Next OTN Sysadmin Day is on January 18

Our next OTN Sysadmin Day will be held on January 18 in Salt Lake City, Utah. As usual, we will have two tracks of hands-on-labs:

Time Session
8:00 am System Shakedown
9:00 am Oracle's Dual OS Strategy / Overview of OTN
 

Oracle Solaris Track

Oracle Linux Track

10:00 am HOL: ZFS HOL: managing packages, configuring services
11:30 am HOL: Exploring OS, network, and storage virtualization HOL on Storage Part I: managing storage and file systems
1:00 pm Lunch Break
2:00 pm HOL: Managing software with IPS HOL on Storage Part II: Device Mapper, BTRFS
3:00 pm Presentation: Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center 11g
4:00 pm Discussion: What are the most pressing issues for sysadmins today?
5:00 pm We all go home

Participants of previous OTN Sysadmin Days found the hands-on labs particularly valuable. You get to learn by doing. And what you get to do is install, configure, and manage the technologies of Oracle Solaris 11 and Oracle Linux in the same way as you would in the real world.

OTN Sysadmin Day in Salt Lake City is free, but you must register. Please stay for the feedback session at the end. They tend to be pretty spirited, and you might win a neat prize. Address:

Salt Lake City Marriott City Center
220 South State Street
Salt Lake City, UT 84111

Back Page: Content Collections on OTN




Rough coupla weeks, here. Mostly for those of you who rely on our docs to do your jobs. But also for those of us who care about making your life a little easier.




This doesn't come close to solving the doc problem, but it's a small step in the right direction: The Back Page of OTN Systems (Sysadmin and Developer Community of OTN) re-creates the Collections of BigAdmin. If you need to find content related to, say, security, go to the Security Collection. It lists all security-related content we've published, whether in a blog, a technical article, or a web page.

Speaking of security, don't forget to keep an eye on our new Solaris Security forum, moderated by Alex Barclay.)

Unfortunately, our OTN Collections don't include the content we published previously on BigAdmin or SDN. That content as migrated to OTN, but we don't have the resources to go back and reorganize it by topic. (If you have a particular favorite, let me know, and I'll hunt it down.)

Regarding the docs, we're not going to be able to solve the entire problem right away. The docs team is working on improving Search, which may be the most helpful. I'll hunt down hidden docs and broken links when we hear about them, and a few of us may put together some online index cards to help you find the docs, too. I hope we can be a little more helpful in the coming weeks.

But don't forget that it's Friday, And sometimes you just gotta take your mind off your troubles.
