General Meeting on Wednesday - 12 October 2016
The St. Louis Unix Users Group (SLUUG) general meetings are usually on the second Wednesday of each month.

We start the general meeting with a basic session; which may include either simple tutorials, displays of newly discovered web sites, command line wonders, demonstrations of useful applications, amazing graphical packages, major resolution of long standing anomalies, blinking lights, or quantum shifts in both time and space. Then we will have our usual quick welcome, introduction, administrative announcements, and a Questions and Answers Period. After all that, we take a break before our main event.

Basic Session

The basics portion will be IPV6 Migration Woes by Dave Forrest

IPV6 Migration Woes (not wows)- Business case best practices.

RIPE has long advocated the transition to IPv6 as the supply of IPv4 addresses has been exhausted. A recent (May 2016) presentation at the Denmark Network Operators Group (DKNOG) conference highlighted some misconfigurations detected in an alarming proportion of currently active websites enabled for IPv6 visitors. Let's fix them first.


David Forrest is interesting and informative.

Main Event

The main presentation will be IBM LinuxONE Server Exploration by Monte Bauman from IBM

IBM has long advocated the Linux technology space and marketplace with contributions of code, software, and hardware. The IBM LinuxONE server is a recent contribution by IBM to the server hardware offerings available to the Linux community. LinuxONE is unique in its size, scale, and ability to efficiently run commercial workloads with the highest qualities of service and lowest total cost of ownership. This talk will explore the LinuxONE hardware offering and present the technical underpinnings of the platform. The talk will conclude the LinuxONE server exploration by disclosing the nature of the community and ecosystem surrounding and supporting the LinuxONE server.
