Challenges Building IT Solutions for Clients

This is the second of two posts in this series on the approaches and challenges associated with planning, designing and estimating IT solutions for clients. If you are a technical solution architect in an IT department or work for an IT service company then you’re probably in the business of creating IT solutions for your clients.

OpenSSH-6.8p1 With LibreSSL (LibreSSH) Is Now!

OpenSSH with LibreSSL is now available. I have tested LibreSSH on AIX 5.3 TL7, AIX 6.1 TL7 and AIX 7.1 TL3 and it works on all of them. The starting point in each case is that openssl.base and openssh.base were also installed. The special behavior is that aixtools.libressl.openssh copies the config files and keys from /etc/ssh to /var/openssh/etc and "downgrades" the ciphers and Key Exchange Algorithms (KexAlgorithms) so that they are equivalent (more on that later). This is to be sure you have connectivity with your current clients after installation. Note: the SRC subsystem for sshd is also modified to start "LibreSSH".

IBM i 7.2 Improved Temporary Storage Tracking (Part 6)

The IBM i Temporary Storage Service allows you to use SQL to retrieve information about the temporary storage buckets. You can view the temporary storage buckets in Navigator for i, but there is no command interface to display that information. If you need a text-based interface to display the buckets, this temporary storage service is how you do it.
