Next MSOSUG Meeting

March 9th, 2008 by Andre van Eyssen

Just a reminder that the next meeting of MSOSUG, the Melbourne Solaris / OpenSolaris User Group is coming up,  Wednesday, March 19th.

Usual time and place – 6pm,  Level 7, 476 St Kilda Road, Melbourne.

This time Richard Smith will be talking about Solaris Performance Counter Observation – Richard is one clued in guy about performance tuning, so this alone makes it well worth the visit. In addition,  Richard Spindler will be discussing troubleshooting Jump Start – should be a lively and interactive session there.

Cassini Ethernet & IP Instances on Solaris 10 (at last!)

February 21st, 2008 by Andre van Eyssen

During last night’s MSOSUG, the fact that Cassini (ce) is now working with IP Instances on Solaris 10 popped up. Since there hasn’t been a whole lot of publicity surrounding this I thought I’d drop a quick post here. The patches are 137042-01 and 118777-12, so head over to sunsolve.sun.com and grab it. I know this will be a popular patch for those performing consolidation operations on existing UltraSPARC infrastructure.
