Things To Have Done Early in 2015

Happy New Year! I wanted to provide you with a checklist of things you should do early this year. Here’s the list and then I’ll dive deeper into each item:

  2. Review or configure syslog.
  3. Review or configure audit.

Manage PTFs With Navigator

I’m sure you’ve heard that Navigator for i added support to manage PTFs in the 7.2 release. This functionality is now also available on 7.1 and 6.1 via the December 2014 Navigator PTFs. I thought it was about time to review the PTF management capabilities you can now do from the browser.

vtmenu and Life's Little Annoyances

Recently a friend asked me about vtmenu:

You know when you run vtmenu and you exit using ~. and it disconnects your ssh session to the HMC. Do you remember the keystroke combination which will just return me to the vtmenu or HMC command line? Can't find it anywhere.
