Zones on an E25K
By John Clingan on Dec 21, 2004
I got an email from a Sun customer asking if I am interested in zones on a fully configured E25K he has. That's like asking me if I want a free Starbucks, or asking a kid if they want candy, or asking a 15 year old boy if he wants a free game of Halo 2. I'm sure you get the point. I get about 5-10 minute stints to work on the updated zones script. Ironically I spend more time blogging about the dang thing than I do coding it! Thanks to a bit of Dan's logic, the script parallelizes zone installation (one install per CPU). The script is "done" from the "it works" standpoint, but I want to make a few "robustness" tweaks before I post it on The Clingan Zone.
I am still interested in how The Clingan Zone readers are thinking of utilizing zones in their environment. Feel free to comment. I wouldn't mind documenting some of them here.
