Migrate Windows iTunes to Mac with Music Stored on SMB Share

How to migrate iTunes from one platform to another and retain links to your songs, even when they are stored remote to the iTunes client, and their path has changed.

Expand LUN on Solaris

After expanding a volume on the SAN, I needed Solaris 10 to now see that the disk has grown and make use of the added space.

Device slice c8t600A0B80002A39FC000004DE47E92C69d0 was 200G with
a filesystem on slice 6. On the SAN, I expanded the volume to 225G. Here is how to expand the disk or partition inside of Solaris.

The steps are:

  1. Detect larger disk size and relabel disk.
  2. Grow the filesystem to fill the disk.

Time To Renew My CCNP Again

My CCNP is up for renewal again.

I'm not sure why I keep this cert up to date, but I feel like I can't just let it lapse. I got my CCNA in 1999 and I've been a CCNP since 2002. It's kinda fun to have a something to study for anyway I guess.
