Happy SysAdminDay!

I'm kicking myself for nearly letting this one sneak by without my notice! But how can I let the day pass without giving a shout out to all the Connect members to toil away and don't get nearly enough recognition?!

This day isn't as widely known as International Talk Like a Pirate Day but it's still a day that's dear to my heart because it's one day out of the year that recognizes YOU! Without you, I wouldn't have a job, so keep up the good work!

Go ahead, take tomorrow off!

In the table below are the references to the release notes of the IT Management Suite 7.0 MR releases:

The "Symantec Management Platform MR4" was release to SolutionSam yesterday via an update of the Symantec.pl.xml files [1].

This SMP MR4 comes on top of the current SMP SP5 release and includes numerous fixes provided in HOWTO36013 (the SP5 pointfix rollup).

Here are some important information's on the file itself:

  • MD5 hash: 5672d657e841f474eb54dc6edbf4f606
  • Modified Date: 2011-04-29 12:32
  • File size: 36,980,345 (36MiB)
  • Version: 7.1.10

Using CreateSolnSamMirror [2] we can see the changes in the package repository with a new addition of 7 directories and 75 files.

Note that the extracts below are extracted from the pl.xml file itself, and that the package files extensions are appended the "_info" to avoid any confusion with the real files (the _info files actually contain the file name, file hash (SHA256 used in SIM) the file size and full url).

The SolutionSam tree now contains...

Update: I have attached source for aila release 0.5.0, the first feature complete release of the tool [release notes here]!

As it turned delivery binary versions of aila for Cygwin is not working so we must take a couple extra steps from the article [1] "Using Cygwin and aila together on a Windows System".

These steps are described here for the reader convenience:

  1. Add packages needed to build from source:
  2. Get the sources

So, you're all registered for Vision and you're wondering who else from Connect will be there.

We're gonna make it easy on you! Add your name to the comments section in this blog posted in the Vision Community, and Leslie will print you out a nifty sticker with your username and avatar. Then, stop by the Internet Lounge at Vision and pick your sticker up. :)  That way, one of us from Connect will have the opportunity to meet you. And soon, all your fellow Connect users will realize that YOU are the one with all those fabulous comments.

 

DEADLINE: You have to add your name by April 25 to this thread. That way I'll have time to create the stickers and print them in time for the event.

Remember, comment on the blog post in the Vision...

You've seen the post in this community about the #Altiris chat - manned by volunteers who are Altiris Admins like you and willing to answer your questions. But have you ever wondered what goes on, without actually wanting to wander into that great unknown? Or worse yet, have you wandered in and no one is there?! We don't always have answers to the questions that are asked, but we do our best.

One of the #Altiris regulars GaurhothW put this report together showing what times are most active (times listed are EST) and who is most active. You can also see some of the random comments - thus we will be watching what we say so we aren't randomly quoted saying something embarrassing!

The information on this report updates periodically #...
