Indispensible Tool for x86 Servers

Oracle's Hardware Management Pack comprises two components: an SNMP monitoring agent and a family of cross platform Command Line (CLI) tools for managing and configuring Oracle Sun Fire x86 servers. The Sun Server Management Agent component provides an in-band SNMP agent for monitoring the server hardware and storage. The cross platform command line tools run on Solaris, Linux (Oracle Enterprise Linux, and current releases from Red Hat and Novell), and Microsoft Windows 2008. The tools. listed below, provide powerful and flexible configuration and update capabilities.

  • ilomconfig, configure the service processor
  • biosconfig, configure the BIOS
  • raidconfig, configure RAID components
  • fwupdate, update firmware
  • All configuration tools are Capable of loading

The Hardware Management Pack saved the day for Peter Tribble, who blogs about his efforts to build a jumpstart profile and to map from the WWN-based device names to physical positions on the chassis of the SPARC T3-1 and the x86-based X4170 M2.

15 Jun 2011 Using Sophos Anti-Virus for Virus Scanning on the Sun ZFS Storage Appliance [24257]
A How-to for Instainstalling and Configuring the Solution on Microsoft Windows, Linux, and UNIX

"Using Sophos Anti-Virus with the Sun ZFS Storage Appliance" is an article by Thomas Hanvey that describes a scalable and reliable virus scanning solution (Sophos Anti-Virus) for protecting valuable data stored on network attached storage devices. Directions are provided for installing and configuring the solution on Microsoft Windows, Linux, and UNIX operating systems for use as a virus scan engine with the Sun ZFS Storage Appliance VSCAN service.Some of the key benefits to using this solution are that users can offload the burden of scanning the files onto the the ZFSSA, thereby reducing network traffic, while taking advantage of the ZFSSA's hardware to perform scanning of files. According to Hanvey, users can move the file scanning task to the Sun ZFS Storage Appliance, reducing network traffic, while taking advantage of the Sun ZFS Storage Appliance’s integrated VSCAN virus scanning service to manage disposition of files based on scan results from Sophos Anti-Virus. He notes that the solution has been certified by Sophos and Oracle to detect viruses, worms, and Trojan horses in files of all major file types, including mobile code and compressed file formats, ensuring fast virus resolution to reduce the risk of financial, data, and productivity loss.

30 May 2011 Oracle Secure Global Desktop Delivers Access to Development Environments [24218]
Oracle's Developers Worldwide Have the Access Required for their Work

As the Oracle white paper "Distributed Development Using Oracle Secure Global Desktop" explains, the Oracle Product Development IT Group (Oracle PDIT) employs Oracle Secure Global Desktop as a gateway to development environments used by Oracle’s software development teams working worldwide on Oracle Fusion, Oracle E-Business Suite, and various other Oracle applications. These software developers use Oracle Secure Global Desktop to access X Windows applications (xterm, fvwm, gnome) running on Solaris OS or Linux servers in the data center, giving them access to various graphical development tools such as Oracle JDeveloper, as well as systems running Microsoft Windows. Oracle PDIT has thousands of concurrent users spread across multiple Oracle Secure Global Desktop arrays around the globe. By this means, Oracle is able to provide its software development teams the access they require to their specific developer environments from any location, reliably and without performance degradation. In addition, administrators can centrally administer access to individual developer environments across multiple locations worldwide.
