    Server 2008 AD exam

    This exam is easy, if you actually do the work. Rather simple and straight-forward. The QnA were tricky.. if I wasn't taking exams since 2004. =) Pretty standard Prometric/MS exam that are easy to derive the answers from the choices. It just actually depends on your knowledge. Experience, well, if you job entails everything about AD then you'd ace this exam. But for most of the people I know, they rather need to get literature, read it, practice it. But they won't ever be using it in their jobs.

    Scripting in Juniper

    How do I achieve this in Juniper? tclsh ! foreach data {0000 1000 8080 ffff 5555} {ping PE source CE data $data size 1500 repeat 1000 df} ! That's tcl in IOS. I'm not in front of a Juniper router right now so I can't play around with it. Just thought of this today - the tcl thing.

    Extended Ping test

    Thanks! Here's an update: tclsh ! foreach data {0000 1000 8080 ffff 5555} {ping PE source CE data $data size 1500 repeat 1000 df} ! You can run commands while in the tclsh prompt. To exit, just type tclquit. Explanation of the extended ping test patterns here: http://ipsn6tap.[websitebanned]/2009/04/extended-ping-test-pattern-poor-mans.html Cheers!

    Ok, this is becoming to be the Sadikhov site I once went to. ^__^ Anyway, I'm starting to learn Juniper, I do have routers and switches to play with in occasion. I've started to blog on this as well: http://ipsn6tap.[websitebanned]/. I'm no expert. But I want to be someday. I'm working for an ISP and we do have Juniper equipment provisioned.

    Juniper Networks

    Hi! I'm also starting a blog on Juniper: http://ipsn6tap.[websitebanned]/. Your comments would help. If you have topics you'd like to see, just tell me. HTH, Jaeson
  12. I'm happy to say I passed though my score was low, probably. I passed the following beta exams from Microsoft: Windows Small Business Server 2008, Configuration Windows Essential Business Server 2008, Configuring Connected Home Integrator Windows Server 2008 Active Directory: Configuration Windows Server 2008 Network Infrastructure: Configuration I also took two other Beta MCTS exam following the others: Performance-based TS: Windows Server 2008 Active Directory, Configuring - I'm BS if I fail this TS: MS System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008, Configuring - This I think I'll fail I'm writing them all down because I won't be taking any Microsoft exams anymore. I think I've already proven myself. It's time that I moved on. My grandfather has been in the hospital the past two weeks because of cancer. I told him yesterday that I'd be bringing my girlfriend over for him to see this coming Friday. I didn't get the chance because he passed away today. I dedicate my success to this person who has always believed in me.

    Tell Me About Yourself ?

    hahahahhahahahahhahahahah! Anyway, I would look interviewers staright in the eye, sit back, look at the ground, sigh, and then start everything with these words, "Let me tell you who I am." as I look them back in the eye and I fire away. I talk about my work, work-ethic, principles in life, tell them Cisco is my passion, that I love IT security, and I've never had a chance to enjoy any vacation leaves in my entire career.
