Howdy all out there in automation land! Hopefully everyone is having a nice summer and getting some time to rest and recharge before we hit a great fall and finish up the year strong. Personally I took a nice couple of weeks off and toured the US with my family. Trips to Dallas, TX, Louisville, KY, Wheeling, WV, and Knoxville, TN. I pretty much did a nice tour of the SEC for those in the sports world! (I do love college football) Anyways, in a few discussions I've had with customers there has been interest in showing how I run scripting languages using CPO. Particularly interest in the major scripting languages like Python, Perl, Powershell, etc. So in the upcoming VOD I plan to show you a quick and simple method to call some python or some powershell code and add it into your automation.
No questions this month! Hopefully we'll get some in to answer for next time!
Every month I will pick a handful of questions from you, the reading CPO public, to answer in this part of the blog. Please post comments/questions below. I will no longer be using the external e-mail from previous blogs.
Please also let me know if you like the format of this blog and what else you would like to see/know about. Feel free to give any ideas as to future blog posts, etc and I will be happy to post them. I hope to do more how-tos, best practices, tips, tricks, and hopefully some interviews of the important people behind the scenes of CPO.

Hi, I installed ACI simulator on a UCS c220 M4 server with a PID APIC-SIM-S2. Sometimes it crashes where we need to install over again. Is a way to take a snapshot when I can revert at crash times ? ThanksZulfi
We currently have 2 pods with 4 spines in each pod. Our current configuration is to only use 2 of the spines in each pod for the IPN between the pods. This gives us no single point of failure. Given there are no bandwidth constraint...
