  • January 2009: Enterprise Wide Unique Identifiers for Business Continuity A discussion of "Enterprise Wide Unique" (EWU) identifiers as they are needed in supporting a business continuity environment. These identifiers provide a mechanism of ensuring a single value for a parameter that must be unique across an entire enterprise. The purpose of this article is to show the value of generating or calculating these values on an as needed basis rather than recording and maintaning these values in spreadsheets and databases. ()
    November 2008: Naming Standards for Business Continuity - In today's partitioned and virtualized computing environments, the requirement for naming standards is more apparent than ever before. Unfortunately there is a wide spread lack of understanding between the different categories of names used to identify managed systems, LPAR's, profiles, node names, host names, and aliases. This article defines naming categories and provide standards for creating enterprise wide unique names associated with each category. This article also explains why it is important to distinguish between the different naming categories and how they are an integral part of data center automation projects and an overall business continuity plan.

    September 2008: KornShell 93 Auditing - New features of the Korn Shell provide system administrators and management with the ability to monitor, track, record, and audit every command executed by any user of a system. This is different from normal the normal shell history, and provides detailed information that includes date, time, tty, user, and the command. This information can be stored locally or transmitted in real time to a remote logging system. (url)
    Mar 2008: Shell Curses Function Library - Provides the shell programmer the ability to perform text-based cursor movements to specified locations on the screen. This ability permits the creation of menuing and data-entry systems using shell scripts without the need for compiled binaries. These functions are similar to the "C" language "Curses" library. (url)
    Sep 2007: AIX disaster recovery - Resolving resource conflicts - This article identifies resource conflicts that typically occur during a disaster recovery implementation and provides suggestions for resolving these conflicts. (url)
