Topics in DNS and BIND
This tutorial will
survey the DNS protocol and describe upcoming extensions to it, as well
as implementation considerations in BIND. Topics will include:
Paul Vixie is the current maintainer of the BIND software system. BIND is the Berkeley Internet Name Domain, and it includes the name server named, used everywhere on the Internet. Paul is also a coauthor of Sendmail: Theory and Practice, and the moderator of the ?comp.sources.unix? newsgroup.
Solaris System Administration Topics
This course covers a variety of topics that are of importance to Solaris system administrators. We will discuss the new major features of recent Solaris releases, including which to use, which to avoid, and how to use them. This in depth course will provide the information a systems manager/administrator needs to effectively run a Solaris installation.

the Chief Technologist for Corporate Technologies, Inc. and used to be
the systems manager for Brown University's computer science department.
He has written articles for Byte and other magazines, is security columnist
for SunWorld, and is the co-author of the Operating Systems Concepts texbook.
As a consultant and trainer, Peter has taught tutorials in security and
system administration and given talks at many conferences.
Configuration and Operation
Who should attend: Systems administrators who want to learn more about the sendmail program, particularly details of configuration and operational issues (this tutorial will not cover mail front ends). This will be an intense, fast-paced, full-day tutorial intended for people who have already been exposed to sendmail. This tutorial describes the latest release of sendmail from Berkeley, version 8.9.
After introducing a bit of the philosophy and history underlying sendmail, this tutorial covers:
The basic concepts
of configuration: mailers, options, macros, classes, keyed files (databases),
and rewriting rules and rulesets.
Eric Allman is the
original author of sendmail. He was the chief programmer on the INGRES
database management project and an early contributer to the UNIX effort
at Berkeley, authoring syslog, tset, the -me troff macros, and trek. He
designed database user and application interfaces at Britton Lee (later
Sharebase), and contributed to the Ring Array Processor project for neural-network-based
speech recognition at the International Computer Science Institute. He
is a former member of the Board of Directors of the USENIX Association.
Who should attend: UNIX system administrators who are also responsible for Windows NT systems (or who may become responsible for them at some point in the future). Students attending this class should be comfortable with general system administration concepts (filesystems, processes, user accounts, backups, and the like) as well as the major tools and procedures used to manage them on UNIX systems. A sense of humor will also be beneficial when initially approaching Windows NT.
The primary goal of this course is to help you apply what you already know about system administration under UNIX to the tasks and challenges of the Windows NT environment, in an effort to make the UNIX and NT environment co-exist as smoothly as possible. The course will include a variety of real-world examples and will focus on practical techniques and strategies for NT system administration. You can expect a very fast-paced, information-rich course.
