BigAdmin Articles

Here are the top four articles on BigAdmin right now, thought this might be of interest to a few of you:

  1. How-To on Installing Solaris 10 10/08 OS
  2. Updated for Solaris 10 10/08 OS: Solaris Containers (Zones)
  3. Using the Solaris OS on IBM and Dell Servers
  4. Solaris 8 OS Entering End Of Service Life (EOSL)

12/23/08 Update: I've been informed that these articles are actually the top four for the December Newsletter, not the overall BA site. Slight misreading on my part.

Messaging Server: New MTA Technical Note

What started as a blog discussion here has resulted in the following technical note, published to BigAdmin:

Preferred Practices for Deploying Sun Java System MTA

Synopsis:

Typically, a Sun Java System Messaging Server deployment consists of front-end and back-end services. The front-end services enable users access to the system, while the back-end services store and provide access to data. In the past, we've heard disputes about how to deploy the MTA on the front end: either as an entrance gateway to the system, or “behind” an anti-spam/anti-virus service that also provides an MTA functionality. This article describes the recommended way to deploy your MTA with respect to anti-spam/anti-virus services.

Patches?!? - We Don't Need No Stinkin' Patches!!

Cool development on the Communications Suite BigAdmin Hub: I'm readying the Downloads > Updates tab to include actual patch numbers. (Which means, of course, I'll have to keep this up-to-date going forward.) I'm starting with the upgrade patches for Communications Suite 5, for each component. As base patches become available for Comms 5, I'll start listing those as well. Note that for Messaging Server:

Upgrade patches will be available in May, 2007. If you need to upgrade sooner, please contact Support. Support will contact Engineering and work with your schedule to see if early access to the upgrade patch is feasible.
I just this morning requested to have this hub tab updated by the BigAdmin gatekeeper, so it should be visible to the external world in a day or so.

Sidebar, per Wikipedia:

"Badges? We ain't got no... stinking badges!" is one of the most frequently quoted, misquoted and parodied movie quotations in history. In 2005, it was chosen as #36 on the American Film Institute list, AFI's 100 Years... 100 Movie Quotes.

Communications Suite BigAdmin Hub Shamless Plug

In marketing, it's about capturing eye-balls, getting traffic to your site, and so on. So, with that in mind, how's about a little shameless plug for the Communications Suite Hub, your one-stop shop for everything you need to know about Sun Java Communications Suite.

If you read this blog, you already know that we launched the Communications Suite Hub in Oct '06, so this is not news. However, you might not be checking back regularly for new content, so here's a quick recap of some of the new items:

  • On the Tech Articles tab:
    • Sun BluePrints Article: Migrating Sun Java System Messenger Express Personal Address Book Using the pab2abs.pl Utility
    • Technical Article: Configuring Sun Java System Messaging Server 6.3 and Solaris Cryptographic Framework on Systems With UltraSPARC T1 Processors
    • Technical Article: Email-Forwarding Behavior in Sun Java System Messaging Server 6 2005Q4
  • On the Community tab, recent threads from the Support Forums.
  • On the Support tab, information about the new Sun Gathering Debug Data program to help you to more quickly resolve problems when opening tickets with the Sun Support Center.

The Communications Suite Hub is also a chance for our customers and partners to submit content as well. If you're interested, you can either drop me a direct line at joseph.sciallo@sun.com, or go through the BigAdmin Submit form.
