A year in the making... and finally the code is pushed. Hooray!
I've just pushed 2964 into illumos, which adds support for a bunch of new libc calls for thread safe and thread-specific locales, as well as explicit locale_t objects. Some of the interfaces added fall under the BSD/MacOS X "xlocale" class of functions.
Oracle VM 3.3 was
providing substantial enhancements to Oracle's server virtualization product family. I'll focus on a few enhancements to Oracle VM Manager support for SPARC that will appeal to SPARC users:
Delphix customers include top companies across a wide range of industries, most of them executing around the clock. Should a problem arise they require support from Delphix around the clock as well. To serve our customers’ needs we’ve drawn from industry best-practices while recently mixing in an unconventional approach to providing the best possible customer service regardless of when a customer encounters a problem.
Several years ago, I gave a presentation on corporate open source anti-patterns. Several of my anti-patterns were clear and unequivocal (e.g., don’t announce that you’re open sourcing something without making the source code available, dummy!), but others were more complicated.
Sometimes the Windows uninstall program leaves orphan files after a removal event. Here were the error messages and some background information.http://www.shouldiremoveit.com/iWebar-91441-program.aspxhttp://www.shouldiremoveit.com/Sense-102076-program.aspx"Windows cannot find 'C:\users\myuser\AppData\Local\Temp\iwebar.exe""Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again.""Windows cannot find 'C:\users\myuser\AppData\Local\Temp\sense.exe""Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again."
Following on from my last blog about "Setting up SSL for Solaris 11 LDAP client (changing AD password from Solaris)" I thought I would finish it off by changing my name service from LDAP to LDAPS. Hopefully your system is already talking to Active Directory over LDAP for all your authentication ("Solaris 11 Authentication Login with Active Directory").
A new Solaris update dramatically improves performance for virtual disks on Oracle VM Server for SPARC.
Prior enhancements improved
virtual network performance,
and now the same has been done for disk I/O.
Now, Oracle VM Server for SPARC can provide
the flexibility of virtual I/O with near-native performance.
