Create your own lab with KVM, LibVirt and Virt-Manager!

Good day!

Hello everyone! As this is my first official post on the blog, I’d like to quickly introduce myself and give you a little sneak peek of what this blog will be focused on!

My name is Dawid, I’m 23 years old and I’ve been working in IT for 3 years now. I was first an apprentice, to then become a junior system engineer and finally I found myself working in NOC as a technical analyst.

Enough about work! I always considered myself to be an interesting person but lately I realized that I might not be the the only person to enjoy working on his home lab, playing vidya games and watching TV shows.

On the blog I will be mainly covering Linux, Windows, Networking and, obviously, CheckPoint! Please bear in mind, some (or lots!) of my posts will be a result of my tinkering with things. If you think there’s a better way of doing something and care to explain, please comment!

Comments. Right. First thing I might need to check is if they’re actually enabled!
