Need to backup and then replace a RAID array that is failing - before it fails completely.

To speed the process I will shutdown the servers and copy within the NAS. And I will also try upgrading the NAS firmware again - see how that works, or does not work.

Thank you for your patience and undertanding.

Note: 15 February is my expected downtime.

Can RPM and INSTALLP work side-by-side?

INSTALLP and RPM - can they co-exist?

Historically - common practice would seem indicate the answer is yes. However, I would say history has proven they cannot for short or long term.

Found my examples!

Visiting a customer this week - I rediscovered examples of why I starting "rolling my own", i.e., downloading, configuring and installing OSS independently.

At this customer the command rpm -qa returns a list of about 20 rpm packages installed. Most of these have never been updated since being installed between 2010 and 2012.

Note: RPM packages are not part of the standard TL-SP updates - the exception being the occaisional update to the fileset rpm.rte

Getting started with OpenSSL and self-signed keys

 This is a DRAFT article - LIKE/RT on twitter to indicate interest (or RT a down vote). Or - respond at "draft-articles " - Thanks!

a) The one command way
b) the multi-command way - because you want to make multiple keys - all signed by a common key (i.e. self-CA)

Show how step b) compares to using "commercial" CA with using "self-signed" CA.
