Example, Add Cisco AP to a netwrork.

I always set a scheduled reload of the remote device just-in-case there's a chance of breaking it (I'm still learning). 10 mins should give you enough time to implement your changes, test it and save it. Depending on the site and how many admins touch the device you could in theory leave your changes unsaved for a few days just to be sure, then get an onsite person to power cycle it if problems occur.

There's great article here that talks about bridge groups and bvi.

Mac OS X "SOE" Day 7

Page Redirection> continued from day 6...

In summary, here is my method for creating a Mac OS X 10.7.3 Standard Operating Environment "SOE" Image.

Overview The goal is to create a "MASTER" non-booted SOE that can be used with multiple models and it multiple sites with different local requirements.

My intention is to use this "MASTER" image in a manual restore procedure due to the fact netboot facilities cannot be made available to all the sites I support however the DMG files are netboot compatible.

RequirementsLion Recovery Disk Assistant v1.0"TARGET" workstation. A compatible workstation that will be used to install Mac OS X 10.7.3 and capture a DMG image(s)."ADMIN" workstation. A workstation with Disk Utility that you will use to capture your DMG image(s).External storage such as a USB HARD DISK.

Mac OS X "SOE" Day 6

Page Redirection> continued from day 5...

Continuing on from the "firstboot" phase setup we need to script our "localiser" options.

I previously set my build phase to autologin and run the firstboot script, the localiser phase essentially sits there and waits for you to run it.

In my case I have an applescript GUI wrapper that requests some info to use in the localisation. I request a TAG number which is an organisational internal number and I also request a user name that will be set as the OWNER.

NOTE : I ordered these specifically...not just because it makes sense logically but also technically. For example, setting the Language actually zaps a plist file (.GlobalPreferences) which you need to write to for Locale and Country info.

This stuff is going to be totally dependant on your environment, as an example here is what I do.

So what's the minimum we need in the "localiser" phase? Depends on how many sites you support, I support over 50 si…

Portable TextWrangler (kinda)

Terminal is great, but sometimes I'm too lazy to use vi and editing lots of shell scripts is waaaayyyyy more efficient with TextWrangler. I use this small dropbox hack so I can sync my stationery and settings across multiple macs. #!/bin/bash #+ Portable TextWrangler #* Formatted date & time string. FORMATTED_DATE=`/bin/date "+%Y-%m-%d%H%M%S"` #+ Remove it from /Applications (optional, just so you can replace it with a ln to your dropbox) sudo /bin/mv -f /Applications/ ~/.Trash/ #* Add a link in /Applications to your DropBox copy sudo /bin/ln -Fs ~/DropBox/ /Applications/ #* Archive existing folder /bin/mv -f ~/Library/Application\ Support/TextWrangler{,.$FORMATTED_DATE} #+ Create cloud app support folder /bin/mkdir -p ~/DropBox/TextWrangler #+ Link cloud app support folder to your local workstation (this contains your stationery etc etc) sudo /bin/ln -Fs ~/DropBox/TextWrangler ~/Library/Application\ Support/TextWra…
