Tomas,

I viewed your videos yesterday.  They are a very good introduction of the basics.  I think it was a good choice to hint at the advanced topics while leaving them out of this "Basics" series.

Some feedback...

  • Very Awesome "NetXMS" Intro. Clip...   ;)
  • Audio for the Intro is louder than your narration.
  • On the "Basics 2.1: Installing for Linux" at 05:04", your terminal, using terminal-colors, is showing blue text on black background, which is hard to read.  Yes, I know it's not relevant text, since you replace it, but it would help give a "Newbie" to NetXMS a sense of direction, that his "Default" file matches what you show in the video.

I had to dig deep to find any criticism, so I hope you take that as a complement to your much appreciated work.  :)

Kind regards.

Cheers,
Tim

Hi,

Thanks for the feedback :)
  • That was not done by me. I got it from Victor for usage in the videos.
  • I will fix that in future videos.
  • Will pick a better color-scheme if any more work is done in the terminal (I dont think more terminal work will be done in the basics series tho).

More videos coming soon... depending on how these are received, I might do an advanced series.

Advanced videos would be welcome, perhaps even a small series just on scripting.

I've also been thinking of doing some videos, or at a minimum documentation for specific use cases.

I know on the MikroTik forums, a few users have been started discussion/threads on using NetXMS, since "The Dude" software they normally use seems to have been stalled for far too long.  In fact, that is how I made my way to NetXMS.

Perhaps we may need to solicit some advanced/specific use case topics that people are interested in.

Cheers,

Tomas i think NetXMS really needed your video series where you explain in greater depth topics.
Please continue. You are doing a great job. I have seen all of the videos so far and learned stuff...
Problem with Wiki and NetXMS documentation in general is that i feel like it was being written too quickly and in rush.
But i don't want to criticize, because the software itself is just too great.

3 new videos added to the Basics series today.
Audio should be a bit more leveled between speech and the intro/outro now :)

Any feedback is always appreciated.

Just wanted to add to the sentiments, these videos are a big part of getting us to look at deploying NetXMS.  Look forward to more of them.

Thanks for the effort.

3 more videos added over the last couple of days.
Basics series is now finished and the Advanced series is getting worked on.

As mentioned previously, I am still accepting requests for topics to cover in Advanced, if you guys have any suggestions, let me know.

That could be great to have a section about Network discovery and how to discover nodes behind a proxy and their corresponding parameters in server configuration. I think every sys admin would love to automate his work. ;-)

Tomas, I would like a video tutorial on how to be awesome like you. You've done so much with this, it's a beacon for netXMS. If it weren't for Tomas's help and videos...  I would have looked at it, maybe installed it and moved on due to difficulty in figuring out how to use it. I  know all of the great things Tomas has done with NetXMS, so I plow ahead know he'll light my path.

hi Tomas,
Totally newbie with linux and trying to get netXMS running on ubuntu 16.04 LTS.
The first video i already stumble. When i get to the part op apt-get search netxms* there are no files found so something is going wrong.
Netxms changed webstructuur but i guess is has to be echo "deb http://packages.netxms.org debian wheezy main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/netxms.list
I do see some notifications like:
Reading package lists... Done
W: The repository 'http://packages.netxms.org debian Release' does not have a Release file.
N: Data from such a repository can't be authenticated and is therefore potentially dangerous to use.
N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.
E: Failed to fetch http://packages.netxms.org/dists/debian/wheezy/binary-amd64/Packages  404  Not Found
E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

Any help would be great!

If you turn on annotations in the video, it should tell you how to deal with that :)
