March 5th P1 User Group Minneapolis – Update

Greetings MDM’ers,

I come in peace.

Well once again we had our P1 user group and it was well attended. Topics this time:

– P1 Best Practices
– GAIA demos

Things that I can recall from memory:

– GAIA will NOT run MDM/P1. This is VERY disappointing because this is where we need it the most. Enterprise P1’s take huge amounts of memory.
– DLP will finally tag file systems and look for files that transit the sensor
– GAIA command line looks like VAX VMS, Cisco, IPSO. Most of the new commands are from IPSO and related to dynamic routing so 90% of us can ignore all that (most people aren’t insane enough to run dynamic routing on their firewalls). Supposedly most of the SPLAT commands are still there (I’m a SPLAT guy so obviously biased.) Looks good.
– WEBGUI is really cool looking, but in reality not sure how many times we’ll use it in an enterprise environment. I’d rather use SmartMonitor (if its working) or Indeni.
– Not sure everyone is aware but there is a cool feature with appliances. You can snapshot the image and keep it on disk. Then during an upgrade when it blows up (and it will), you can just restart from the image snapshot. No more tftp for 1 hour to restore. DOES NOT work for SPLAT.
– ONE ISO for the world. No more ISO of the week. One ISO will build anything everywhere.

I’ll keep updating this as the old bald guy memory gets updated.

If people have ideas how to improve the meetings or topics they would like discussed please let me know and I’ll forward to the decision makers.


MDM on,

I will update this as I remember

Life Stories from Dreez

These are stories from my travels. Generally I like to write stories about local people that I meet and also brag about living the retirement dream with my #1 wife Gaby. She is also my only wife.
