vgLog - Michael in the Morning
Written by Michael Felt   

Back in the old days - media came in the box with the system - and you unpacked it yourself. These days - there might be media in the box - but who ever sees it?

And how about the media refreshes and/or new technology levels?

PassportAdvantage you say? And you are (almost) absolutely right. PassportAdvantage should be considered a must. However, read probably, all you will see is "stuff" from SWG (software group).

To get to the AIX and POWER virtualization media follow this link: https://www-304.ibm.com/servers/eserver/ess/ProtectedServlet.wss for the "UserServices" you are looking for.

Hope this helps!

  • Maintenance
  • Third-Party Security Tools

What system you are using NTP on?

The discoveries of openings in the NTP protocol for hacking into systems is pervasive into all operating systems - including AIX. One announcement in 2014, one in 2015- and 4 or 5 announcements (depending on how you want to count them) in the first 6 months of 2016.

In short, this year, the number and rate of discoveries have increased dramatically. So, thinking you are not affected is just putting your head in the sand - unless you are not using NTP at all.
