Legrand Home Automation DNS Change

We built our house a few years ago.  Before all the drywall went up I wired tons of networking into each room, including for for the Legrand Home Automation system and whole house audio.  The core home automation module, the HA7000, is the integration work engine of the system.  It connects to Legrand’s cloud servers for remote alerting, updating, etc.  On February 20th, 2018 they had a significant service outage and their restoration procedure is not so seamless.  Rather than following their instructions of changing my home router’s DNS forwarder I broke out tcpdump and did some digging.  So if you have a Legrand system, need to do this update, and don’t want to pass your DNS traffic to them, read on.

Are you registered for VMworld 2018?

It’s almost VMworld time!

Have you checked out the VMworld site yet and registered?  VMworld 2018 is being held in Las Vegas at the Mandalay Bay from August 26 – August 30.


VMworld is by far the conference I look forward to the most each and every year, and I can hardly believe it’s almost VMworld time again!  Each year VMworld gets bigger and better, and I am sure 2018 will be no exception.  This will be my 6th time heading to the event and I still find something new each trip.  If you’re looking to register for your first VMworld trip here’s some pointers I have learned from my trips so far.
