Making my way through training files... not always easy to schedule with work and stuff still happening, but I can fit it in.

Thanks. CCIE was the holy grail when I started networking, and I have always wanted it. I don't think it supplies as much value as it used to, but it is still a personal goal. My company couldn't care less if I hold a CC anything as long as I have my 8570 cert. So if I fail I will just try again next year. If I pass then I have to deal with the lab, and start serious study.

Currently working on JNCIP-SEC but I'm finding it hard to get back in the study routine. Gotta knock it out before September though, or my JNCIS-SEC expires.

Getting more serious about the FSCE stuff now that my actual hardware has arrived.

AWS Solutions Arch: Associate done and dusted!

VCP6-NV recertification next.... thankfully they retired my VCIX-NV so I don't actually have to recertify on VCAP6-NV to claim VCIX greatness. I don't have the energy these days to do a full NSX lab build again, but a few hours on the free HOL labs should be enough + skimming the cert guide to nail the VCP level recert, not a lot has changed greatly (aside from cross-cluster constructs) for NSX from 6.1 to 6.2.

After that I actually have no re-certs for the next 12 months which is AMAZING. So going to solidify my tinkering with formal Ansible and Terraform linuxacademy courses, certs be damned. And knock out a couple of CSCO e-learning automation courses for the continuing education credits if nothing else.

Guides and Labs / Re: Any good literature on Fiber channel, mainly MDS
« Last post by ristau5741 on February 26, 2018, 01:46:21 PM »
i am working extensively with MDS9000 fiber channel. The DC book I have has good initial coverage on Fiber Channel but I am looking for more in-depth coverage (debug and t-shoot) on fiber channel issue. Anyone knows a good book? Since it is mds9000, I'd prefer Cisco publication or something good that is written good.
Thanks!

here, fixed that for you

Certifications and Careers / Certification and Career Goals for 2018

Well, it's a new year, we need a new goal thread.  >:D

I'm taking the FCSE class this week, I'll have to pass the test so I can keep working with ForeScout. I plan to pass that test soon, should be fun. It's mostly a cert for ForeScout employees and vendor partners, so it's not for folks that support it at their firm or anything like that.

Career-wise, I want to meet my billable hours goal. Should not be an issue, since I'm booked for some major clients that bought lots of architect time in their POs. But, all the same, if it's a goal on my manager's list, it's a goal on my list.

Looks like I'll also get a chance to learn tons more about Splunk and ServiceNow and how they work with ForeScout.
