CEC: Certification

Blowing my own horn!

Sunday took and passed the Solaris Certified Network Administrator exam!

Monday took and passed the Solaris Certified Security Administrator exam!

(This one I was really worried about but passed with a 79.7 (or so) score)

I would go take more tests but I already have the S10 admin and I have serious doubts that I could do anything with the Java or Cluster exams.

It is currently my understanding that only two people have taken the Security exam so aside from me, Glenn Brunette (of Glenn Brunette's Security Blog) who wrote the exam.

This score is very close to what I got on the practice exams (74% and 75%) Not a surprise here,

IPv6 is still something that I deal with infrequently. If you are looking to take

this exam you would benefit from being familiar with IPv6. Also pntadm and dhtadm it helps if your method of

doing DHCP doen't commonly include "oops, wanted the other one."

You passed the exam.

I did a bit better on the practice exam but I am fairly happy with this score.

The test was harder than I was expecting, priv.  management is good to know. Keeping straight

auth/user/prof whatever attr and what you need to do to add/modify privs was a bit dicey. I normally

find myself looking at the man pages or in the files to remind myself of exactly what I am doing when I am making

modifications. Testing is harder when you can't use man! Also important defaults values, security concepts, not surprisingly

just about everything in the goals statement for the testing/training.
