Just a reminder that the next meeting of SVLUG is Wednesday, 2

This is my last act in the position of SVLUG Speaker coordinator, a
job I took on in December 2000. I'd like to thank the entire staff
and membership of SVLUG for the opportunity to help bring you some
excellent speakers: Your suggestions and support have been invaluable.
As of this meeting, Steve Traugott will be taking up the job of
Speaker Coordinator. (Yes, he's also this month's speaker: What
better way to familiarize himself with the job? :) ) As before,
please contact him via the speakers at svlug.org mailbox with proposals
Now, on with the show...
Automating Linux Infrastructures
Wednesday, 2 January 2002, 7pm-9pm or so.
Managing Partner, TerraLuna, LLC
Steve Traugott is a pioneer in the area of automated administration
of clusters and enterprise systems; his "Bootstrapping an
Infrastructure" paper at the 1998 LISA conference helped lay the
groundwork. Steve will cover the concepts and terminology of
automated systems administration -- why automate, what components
you need, the role of gold servers, CVS, LDAP, kickstart, makefiles
that run at boot, tools like cfengine, file replication, and
related subjects. He'll also talk about technologies like
ARK/Arusha, ISconf and others on the horizon.
Cisco Building 9.
