System configuration documentation tools: What they are and why you need them
Speaker: Patrick Wallek, Critical Systems Software Engineer, Service IT Direct

Do you know EXACTLY how your systems are configured? If one of your systems crashed and had to be rebuilt from scratch, could you reconfigure all of your volume groups, logical volumes and file systems? What about users and groups? Or cron jobs? Or a thousand other details that comprise each of your systems?
 These are just a few of the items that system configuration tools like CFG2HTML and Sysinfo can answer for you in a pinch. I will go over several tools, including CFG2HTML and Sysinfo, to show you what operating systems they run on, how to run them, and the information they provide. I will also show how you can script them so that they run automatically and then copy them to another server and set up a web page so that they are available from anywhere within your corporate Intranet. I will also cover cases in which I have used system configuration information to assist customers in recovering their systems.

Speaker: Joe Kilcullen, Datacenter Remarketing Consultant, Hewlett Packard Enterprise

HPEFS will provide the pathway to extending a customer's existing IT infrastructure to allow maximum utilization of current IT infrastructure and provide a confident, reliable solution to ensure their existing IT can remain in place for the foreseeable future. 

Maintaining your existing HP-UX environment (topics): 

  • Availability of HP-UX equipment beyond the End of Life date
  • How to provide a IT equipment plan at the speed your company requires, not at the pace new technology evolves
  • Disposal of existing IT equipment allowing for environment considerations and indemnification for the customer. 
  • Customer's will walk away with a better understanding of their options from HPE on how to continue to use existing hardware, acquire additional flexibility and reduce costs for their IT infrastructure.
