- Juniper LACP configuration | Misplaced Packets –
Following on from the previous post about the VC configuration, this post is a quick and dirty look at link aggregation in JunOS. For such a flat network there wasn’t really much to consider with spanning tree other than making sure the right switch became the root and that the redundant path was used when necessary so there isn’t much to write about leaving more time for LACP.
Must do that Juniper bridging course sometime.
- Fast Tracks and Shiny Plaques | The Networking Nerd –
In the end, I think that HP has got the right idea. While the prospect of losing my Master ASE due to reorganization does chafe somewhat, I think the program realignment was necessary to make the certification program have some prestige and level the playing field. However, I’m couching my opinion until I see exactly how long the Fast Track program lasts. And I hope that this isn’t just another example of the networking professional community being dragged into a vendor war.
Some good observations on the HP ExpertONE certifications.

To sum it all up, I think the smart vendors are going to tell their customers what is coming and when they can expect to see it for sale. It helps people like me plan for things down the road. I’m more interested in a vendor that is constantly updating their technology as opposed to one who releases new products with lesser frequency than leap years occur.
Mathew Norwood also wants vendors to lay out their road map so he can plan for the future. I wonder if HP is listening ? No sign yet.
