network interface failover

December 24, 2013 12:17 a.m.

Ever run into a situation where a server has multiple nics that need failover if one fails or load balancing without switch or router level redundency? Or you have one nic with multiple ports distributed between two switches and the same needs? Linux network interface bonding can be your saviour!

nagios and network monitoring

November 3, 2013 1:03 a.m.

Ok, every smart sysadmin should monitor their network. This way the clients and staff do not have to inform you if something is down before you know yourself. Common sense, right? Hopefully so!

Although, production servers were linux. And I use that term loosely since most of them were on Cobalt servers. Back then, Cobalt did not mean linux/redhat truly, but a form of a redhat based OS was there. The directory structure of where things lived were not necessarily in the standard places. Although, it was still linux and fairly easy to adapt.

transferring domains to a new registrar

August 5, 2010 1:01 p.m.

Transferring a domain from one registrar to another is something that can happen for multiple reasons. Maybe you found another registrar that is cheaper, you're changing hosting companies and they would like to use their registrar, the management interface is easier to use or less confusing, or maybe another registrar has features and products that you need.
