Finally this is happening! After all these years I’ve been given an opportunity to speak, present, teach others about technologies where I find myself very confident and have experience which should be shared among the community. I will be a speaker at IBM Technical University
I would like to share my experience from implementing and configuring the feature of PowerHA – The Administrative Domains. This functionality allows synchronization of specific objects stored on the SYSBAS. It should be used in conjunction with an iASP based solution. Thus, if you don’t use the iASP, you will not find the Administrative Domain useful.
I just came back from vacation and I’m shocked with the information that the development of key IBM i products: BRMS, PowerHA for i, IBM Rational Developer for i (RDi) and L3 support are moved to HelpSystems.
Finally I found some time to write few words about LUG meeting which I was fortunate to attend at the begging of June 2017. Beside numbers of presentations, it was great opportunity to finally meet many IBM i people, architects, developers. And I was also given an opportunity to present some content to the community.

This week I discovered very weird bug in the POWER8 firmware. With this bug it is possible to use entire server capacity without paying processor activation to IBM. Continue reading “Demand for extra CPU capacity? Use a bug in POWER8 firmware”
Today, I want to share my experience with the upgrade an SR-IOV adapter firmware (EN0H) configured in shared mode. The update was so simple and so straight forward that I decided to share this positive message with you. Continue reading “SR-IOV firmware upgrade via the HMC Enhanced GUI”
The other day, I’ve wrote about POWER8 ‘feature’ which requires from an administrator update of access keys in order to keep a server eligible for the firmware upgrade POWER8 – No hardware maintenance-no firmware upgrade . An administrator needs to enter these every few months, if a maintenance contract is re-signed every few months. This can be a headache, or something bigger if someone runs multiple servers. There is a secret HMC function, which can update the keys automatically.
Few weeks ago I had a chance to test VTL functionality on StoreOnce devices in conjunction with IBM i. HP StoreOnce is pretty new product and I know that a lot of people is waiting for some information ‘from the field’. This is my short summary.
Last week I spent at the Technical University in London. It was a great conference. As always I learnt a lot, met a lot of friends, seen a lot of interesting technologies and concepts. The conference was very special for me, because I was given the opportunity to join a poster session. Continue reading “IBM TechU London 2016”
I will be at the Technical Univeristy conference at London. My blog is going to have a poster session on Thursday afternoon (starting from 5pm). If you want to discouss any topic or you just want to have a small talk, stop at my booth and say hello .
See you in London.
