DEKO 37 | San Antonio Video Production | 210-573-7386 | https://www.deko37.com

If you need high quality, high impact, compelling media content that is emotionally engaging and visually evocative, then you are recommended to seek out Danny O-K at DEKO 37, 210-573-7386.

I know Danny as the hardest working videographer in San Antonio, but he might be best known for delivering positive media for exceptional clients.

Danny is most proud of the work he does that benefits the local civilian, military, and veteran community in the San Antonio area. A few that come to mind are his recent projects working with the San Antonio Housing Authority (SAHA), the United States Air Force (USAF), and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). (The work that Danny has done with the USAF and the VA has not yet been released for public consumption, but expect to see it in the near future.)

The San Antonio Housing Authority (SAHA) competed in the Wireless Innovation for a Networked Society (WINS) competition. The competition, sponsored by the National Science Foundation and Mozilla, was …

VetsInTech CyberSecurity Training at Palo Alto Networks in Santa Clara, CA (August 6-10, 2018)

The course: The Palo Alto Networks Firewall 8.1 Essentials: Configuration and Management (EDU-210)The instructor of the course was Mitch Densley. I am not sure that it is possible to request the instructors by name, but if I could, I'd request Mitch for every class. He provided an abundance of resources that went above and beyond the core curriculum, to the point that there wasn't enough time to review them all. I am still perusing materials days after the class is over. Mitch was not alone in delivering the course. He was accompanied by what I would best call subject matter experts: Sandro (Professional Services Architect) and Tom (Content Developer) also brought their weight of experience to bear during the course, helping to translate classroom activities to real-world applications. One thing I won't forget about Tom is that he finds his work fun because he gets to tinker for a living. One thing I remember about Sandro is that he said "The Network is King" mo…

Setting Up Dynamips with Linux Central, and Windows Remote

I posted this on some guy's blog, here: http://chasingmyccie.wordpress.com/2012/01/28/how-to-build-a-ccie-rack-with-gns3-dynamips-part-4-connect-the-switches-to-the-gns3-server/

(Then, I realized, hey, this could be an article here!)

Here’s the topology file I used, might give you some ideas:(I noticed I said to turn something off, but I put the setting on “true” hah, disregard)How it works:
(1) stage directories, image files, and install dynamips/gns3 as required
(2) have script on Linux server to start the dynamips processes
(3) have script on Windows machines to start the remote dynamips processes
(4) run this topology file on the linux hostIf you’ve enabled remote connect, you can remote to the box, and connect to the process there, OR … if you know the IP/port number combination, you can just telnet into the routers remotely.Do … whatever works for you.## Access server in GNS3

Sixth Update: Certification: 642-617 FIREWALL v1.0 Deploying Cisco ASA Firewall Solutions (FIREWALL v1.0)

I decided to get back on this horse, so here it is. I'm basically starting from scratch, as I have not really touched the text for this one since September 2011, except for a time a few weeks ago when I re-organized my study room, and had to relocate the shelving unit :D. I got side-tracked by a lot of my Master's program work, which is ongoing, I got sidetracked by the Certified Ethical Hacker I had to do for school as part of my degree program, I was looking through the CCNP R&S materials for a change-of-pace from day-to-day work, but it just makes sense right now to get down into this stuff, and to do it really well, and complete this one. I'll be re-setting the counters, and will just explain everything again from scratch.

Also, I realized that I hadn't updated my blog since September 2010, when I ... actually went through a lot of life-changing experienc…

6418 - Deploying Windows Server 2008, Day 2

On Day 2 of the class, we covered the following topics:
Windows Deployment Services
Microsoft Deployment Toolkit
Upgrading and Migrating Active Directory.

With regards to Windows Deployment Services, we covered how the deployment of windows systems has changed, and we have a new methodology, whereby it is more suited to imaging systems that may have underlying different hardware. Now, there are methods for updating drivers and patches on an image, while the image file is offline.

While covering the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit, we dug in and looked at some of the excellent utilities that Microsoft provides for modifying a .wim file (the new base file format for a system), such as imagex, which can be used to modify an image without first mounting it.

Also covered on day 2 was the GUI, as well as command line, methods for Upgrading and Migrating Active Directory.

The training so far has been top notch at New Horizons, of which I attribute a good portion of that credit to Mr. Kirk McArdle.

Real Time Publishers ... Great Resource for IT Information

I have to hand it to Kirk McArdle, of New Horizons www.newhorizons.com) again, he's dishing out more good information. He showed us this web site during class wrap-up yesterday: Real Time Publishers, www.realtimepublishers.com, is a great site for downloading white papers about various IT topics. I am most interested in the ones about service management right now, but they appear to have tons of information there. For the price of giving up your work mailing address, you get access to download lots of nice content.

If you're anyting like me, you probably shred tons of vendor mail throughout the week.

If you'd like to reach me, Lewis Lampkin, III on linked in, I am available at the following address:

Chris Riling, CCIE#25581

Chris Riling is one of my contacts on www.linkedin.com. His linkedin page is available here: www.linkedin.com/in/criling.

I first met Chris during a 2006 training course at American Interactive, www.americaninteractive.com. The course at the time was the CCNA/CCNP bootcamp, all-inclusive deal. If you ever need Microsoft or Cisco training, I'd always suggest American Interactive first. Toby (Cisco) and Jay (Microsoft) were excellent! OK, that's enough free advertising for American Interactive.

During the bootcamp, Chris was obviously the youngest person in the class. However, another thing readily apparent was that he was one of the most experienced and knowledgeable people in the class.

Here's an anecdotal story ..there was one person in the CCNP course, made the remark that he wouldn't trust Chris to touch his equpment, since he was too young. Of course, this miffed me, as you can judge a person on experience, and skills, but dismissing someone based upon age…

6418 - Deploying Windows Server 2008, Day 1

Well, I had a nice first day of class. The instructor was very knowledgeable. His name was Kirk McArdle. I believe that he said he was from Jersey. By the accent, I would have guessed he was from the New York/Boston region, so that much did fit.

I figure some of you might be wondering how the class itself went, and the class went fairly well. There was the initial "case of the Moooondays" (If you've seen Office Space, you get this reference.).

The class was in the online live learning format (OLL). This means that the class is held across the internet, and you use your mic and headset to communicate during the class. I can understand if this does not work for some. To me, it makes sense to the training company, as they can offer training classes more often than if they had to have the trainers on-site. Also, it helps the students, as they can have more scheduling options for the classes. By the way, this also cuts down on transportation costs, for people needing …
