Prince2 vs PMP - Thoughts

@Dru-Yamagiwa said in Prince2 vs PMP - Thoughts:



are you in EU or US ?
Prince2 is popular in EU, PMP is more in US.
Prince2 is way easier than PMP even Practitioner.
Prince2 Practitioner including Foundation is a 2 weeks study, PMP is more 2 to 3 months.
My advice would be to start with Prince2 then move to PMP if required.

Course Videos/Materials & Lab Modules

@Ronnie-Wong said in Course Videos/Materials & Lab Modules:


Please check on the overview video of the entire course, you should see a course download link.

Thanks for being a member.

Thank you for the reply. I'm still not seeing any material that correlates the videos to the labs (again, the CompTIA Security+ (SY0-501) course).

I'm asking if there is a quick reference that indicates to the student when they should be completing any of the numbered (25) labs in the course, based on the completion of the 61 videos in the course.

For example, Labs 5 through 11 pertain to Domain 2 (Technologies & Tools), Labs 12-15 pertain to Domain 3 (Architecture & Design), etc.

It would help if the 25 labs are organized by domain, so that the student can better gauge when to even start the labs.

Thank you!

We didn't do that because there's a possibility for ENCOR to update the exam blueprint. If they update, the series will continue to be updated.

Alter Views

The easiest way to retrieve the view definition is with the sp_helptext stored procedure. For example:

EXEC sp_helptext 'HumanResources.EmployeeDirectory';

That would retrieve information about the view including the query that defines it. There are a few other ways to do it as well. If you want to learn other methods, check out this page in the Microsoft SQL documentation.

Setup SSL in MacOS Catalina

Hello Don,

I watched the videos under Linux Server Administrator and Managing MacOS Server 10.13 regarding setting up SSL with Apache. I only used the built in Apache in Catalina. I also tried to get any documentation on setting up a Web Dev environment that will be hosted internally. I created myself an Internal CA thru OpenSSL and copied its root certificates to the client Mac and made it to trust it. I set up a separate MacOS device to be a Web Server and have its certificate signed by the CA to use. No matter what I do on the client end using Safari (other browser might be the same but have not tried it). Whenever I tried to connect to the test site using HTTPS it always get an error saying the certificate is invalid. I can do import it but there is already the CA's certificate installed and trusted. If i ever import the certificate (web server's one) it does go to the keychain and the errors goes away. I really want to make the certificate trusted in the first place. My apologies but nothing in the shows provided any help in trying to make internal certificates work. I am not a web developer in profession but I have this project to implement in our company using https to host files. Hoping you can help me in this regard.

Stakeholder Map and Analysis

Mainly, I was looking to see if there were any established frameworks or best practices to follow in creating these, similar to the recommendation of using Kotter's 8-step change model for change management.

nmcli connection edit -- how do you know what commands to use?

In real-life land nmcli and nmtui change the exact same settings so you can use either one to achieve the same results. For me, I use nmtui when I am making a one-time change, and I use nmcli when I am scripting a change. As for the command line options, sadly I do have many of them memorized. They key ones are well documented, though. You can find full documentation on the Gnome Developer site and practical examples on the Red Hat Customer Portal.

As for devices and connections, a device represents a hardware network adapter (although sometimes it can be virtual like a loopback or null). This is generally tied to layers 1 and 2 of the OSI model. A connection represents the software configuration applied to a device. This is generally tied to layers 2 and 3 in the OSI model. For most end users devices and connections are one and the same. The differentiation really only matters on systems where there are multiple adapters. For example, I might have a server with two 10Gbit ethernet adapters that I want bonded together. In that scenario I would have two devices attached to one connection. Another scenario would be if I had a laptop and moved between multiple docking stations. I might define one connection that was tied to the physical device for each of the docking station adapters. That way I could maintain the same IP address on each dock.
