About Colin Seymour
Colin Seymour (Google+) is a Principal Support Engineer in the Solaris and Network Domain (SaND) of
Sun Microsystems Oracle Corporation in the UK and have been working for Sun/Oracle in a support role since January 2001.
My primary fields of "expertise" are in Solaris (all versions from 2.6 to 11), OpenSolaris, crash dump analysis, networking, Sendmail, ZFS, zones, security, jumpstart, shell scripting, logical domains and pretty much anything that is considered part of the operating system.
I am a certified Sun Certified System Administrator/Oracle Certified Professional in Solaris 8 and Solaris 10.
I am also a "Guru" on the My Oracle Support Communities and achieved this "status" in just over a year. At this time (Jan 2012), I am the only guru within the Solaris and related communities.
I have extensive knowledge in other fields that are not part of my day-to-day job including, but not limited to, storage software products supplied by Sun (e.g. NBU, VxFS, VxVM, EBS, SDS), Sun storage hardware products from prior to the StorageTek acquisition (e.g. SE3xx0, SE69xx, A5xx0, T3 etc), other operating systems (Redhat/Suse/Ubuntu/Oracle Linux, Windows XP & 7, Apple OS X) and various other products - listing them all could take some time.
I also contribute to the OpenStreetMap project where I can.
More personal information about me and my other general random ramblings can be found on my personal site at http://colinseymour.co.uk
About this Site
This site is the home to my random technical ramblings. The intention is to offer information and help in subjects that have stumped me or are of particular interest to me, and that may be of use to others out there, with a slant towards Solaris and OpenSolaris.

Oh yes, and last but not least, whilst I have a job and I really enjoy it - I'm a problem solver at heart - I will always consider realistic offers of employment or contract work that does not clash or conflict with my current employment.
