Use Dual-Key Authentication for Special Accounts

A question about the risk of being able to login as root either remotely or limited to the (virtual) console came up on a discussion group in LinkedIn recently. Ideally, there is no need to ever login as root (the big question or risk being: who is root today). Instead, users should be logging as as themselves and then using a mechanism to switchuser (su, sudo, super, etc.) to root.

IBM i 7.2 SNMP Enhancements

The Simple Network Management Protocol version 3 (SNMPv3) support in IBM i 7.2 has been enhanced to provide additional function for native IBM i SNMP managers. New APIs are now available to perform SNMPv3 operations. These new APIs provide the capability to send GET, GETNEXT and SET SNMP requests using SNMPv3 and to perform SNMPv3 agent engine ID discovery and time synchronization. The APIs are snmpDiscover_v3(), snmpGet_v3(), snmpGetnext_v3(), snmpSet_v3() and snmpFreeAuthCB_v3(). An SNMP manager application must first use the snmpDiscover_v3() API to perform agent SNMP engine ID discovery and time synchronization.

Batch SPUFI

Recently I was asked about running SQL and DDL in batch rather than ONLINE using SPUFI. DB2 is delivered with some sample programs that support running DDL or SQL in batch. These programs are called DSNTIAD, DSNTEP2 and DSNTEP4, and detailed information about them can be found in the Utility Guide and Reference manual.

A System Outage, and the Failures that Led to It

Old Power servers just run. Most of us know of machines that sat in a corner and did their thing for many years. However, as impressive as Power hardware is, running an old, unsupported production server with an old, unsupported operating system isn't advisable. This is one such story of a customer and its old, dusty machine that sat in a back room.
