We are currently using a Jodian CD burning software which is pretty much outdated. They have a new version available, but I would be interested if other folks here use CD burners on AIX and what system they are using. We don't do production or backup, I just have to burn bootable CDs in our development process.
The only other system I found until now comes from Gear Software with a hefty price :-(

All feedback welcome ...

I hope that someone out here has a good answer.

We're also an AIX shop.  Our "solution" for burning CDs is to download the file to a Windows or Linux workstation and burn the CD from there.

But we don't do it a lot.  We have over 1TB of DASD (which is being expanded to 5+) and a silo with 20+TB (being expanded to 1,200 TB).

640MB goes into 1,200,000,000MB a lot of times.  ;)

Thanks griessh,

If we find the need to start burning more CDs than we do now I'll pursue these.

Kdo.

P.S.  Nice handle -- does it have an explanation?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

>>does it have an explanation?

<LOL> It's an abbreviation of my last name (I am German) and our first sys admin had only 7 characters for us under SUN OS 4. That got stuck!

BTW: we are using a jodian system since 1997 now and it just recently started falling apart :-(

I guess that's it ... I'll ask for a refund in CS if there aren't any objections.
