First, something useful...we have published two new tech tips submitted by the community (affectionately known as "Commie Tech Tips"):
Tech Tip #1: Upgrading NetApp DFM to Run on Solaris 10
If you're running NetApp's DataFabric Manager (DFM) 3.2R1, you probably know that in spite of having a version number almost as cool as a Porsche's, it does not run on Solaris 10.
If you'd like to run NetApp's DFM on Solaris 10, you'll need version 3.7.1. (Not as cool as a Porsche.) This article by Balasubramanian C explains how to upgrade from version 3.2R1 to 3.71, using Live Upgrade.

Tech Tip #2: How to Avoid Patch Problems When Moving a Local Zone
This tech tip by Victor Feng describes how to avoid problems with incompatible patch levels when moving a local zone from one host to another.

A Gentle Note to Annoying Spammers
You know who you are.
Do you really think that BigAdmin is interested in posting your ads for cheap drugs, the latest gossip about Tiger Woods, and steroids to grow different parts of my anatomy?
Do your homework, you marketing genius, you.
If you're too lazy to do your homework, then go ahead and continue to fill in those BigAdmin forms with all your drivel. You know how many mouse clicks it takes me to delete all that stuff you just filled in? Two: one to delete, and one to confirm.
And I enjoy it. I actually look forward to that moment in my day when I can stop what I'm doing, turn on Tchaikovski's 1812 Overture, and enjoy the music. I put my feet up, close my eyes, and when that glorious finale arrives, I happily plink away at the Delete button.
You? You just suck.
