SCSIraidGURU’s World

My mentor said to be called an engineer you need three things?”

1.) You needed a Bachelor’s degree in Computer or Electrical Engineering.

2.) Experience and the education into the future. We continue our education beyond our Bachelor’s degree. We research new technology to better serve the corporation’s needs. We bring new ideas to the table.

3.) Engineers bring solutions not problems to management.

Cisco VIRL simulations: I have been going through my Cisco Virtual Lab simulations.  I have been adding in IPv4 and IPv6.  They will be able to access the real world.  TFTP to IPv6 is working.   I have been creating IPv6 on my Fortinet 60e and soon will have DHCPv6 working in my entire house. 

I asked Fortinet to  open a NFR for DHCPv6 reservations.   I want the same ability in IPv6 and in IPv4 to take a MAC and statically set a IPv6 address to it in DHCPv6.  I think the most interesting part of working on my Cisco CCNP was coming up with my own IPv6 addressing for the Cisco Virtual Lab and my house.   I could get an IPv6 block from AT&T or WOW.   

Linux: Updating the menus has been a lot of work.   The Conditional menus are great but means each new simulation and page needs to be added to the structure.   It covers Samba, phpMyAdmin, Webalizer, Syslog-ng and other topics.   I added VEEAM backup along with the VMWare 6 Essential Kit license for it. 

 8.2019: I added a section on my Fortinet 60E hardening on main menu.  Part of this project was writing Shell/Bash scripts to parse the Syslog files.  I wrote php code to show the MariaDB tables in the Linux section.

This site is for everything I have done over 30+ years!!

It covers all my awesome workstation builds
It covers programming that I have done
It covers my Cisco CCNP and CCDP work
All my CCNA/CCNP simulations from Packet Tracer and my Cisco Virtual Lab

IT gave me my own page to post my Cisco VIRL simulations to for their users.
