Cloud-Init for AIX - not an RPM - coming soon! PDF Print E-mail
Written by Michael Felt   
Last week I was in Cannes, France - attending (and presenting) at the POWER TechU (Tech University).
Lots of the usual stuff - but I also expanded my network. In particular - I am going to mention
@chmod666 who has requested (read challanged) me to port cloud-init to AIX. Not because cloud-init
does not exist already - but because it requires so very very many RPM's to get it loaded.

I am on my way - the first problem was getting a better python package built. Why better? Because the
one I have used myself for the ./configure scripts that need it has been sufficient. But not sufficient
for cloud-init. So, better means it has more python modules actually built - and included in the packaging.

In short, not done yet (only been one day) - but much closer!

Service Bulletins PDF Print E-mail
Written by Michael Felt   

One of those areas on IBM's portal that has moved. The old one was still there, but it did not provide any information for TL8 and TL2, so finally got around to updating all that and added the new links in the menu on the right.

The new name is: Power Server Bulletins

Very useful to find information about recent updates and their impact! Visit every now and then and keep your AIX systems healthy.
