Server Names in MAXSESSION table

We found this great blog post  that shows how to set up the server names for cluster members. But that's not the real gem in my eyes, it how to use a variable in the JVM args ${WAS_SERVER_NAME} so that you don't have to hard code each JVM name in every app server config.

Apache The Definitive Guide - Book Review

I just finished Apache The Definitive Guide by Ben Laurie & Peter Laurie and would highly recommend this book to anybody who is administrating an Apache or IBM HTTP Server. Apache The Definitive Guide is a ground up approach to teaching you about the Apache web server platform. After spending the last year moving away from a developer role and into a infrastructure role I learned a lot about the IBM HTTP Server  but still had a lot of questions. The Definitive guide tied a lot of concepts together and removed the once dense fog around the web server component of our infrastructure.
