    Chrome and Earth issues on 10.9.4?
    posted by Brian Krusic on July 3, 2014, 6 p.m. (1 day ago)
    Hi,

    Any one having issues like not being able to launch either of these apps as a non local user in 10.9.4?

    Just curious before I waste time debugging.

    Mavericks - CC & CC 2014; local vs network home dirs
    posted by Brian Krusic on July 3, 2014, 9:20 p.m. (1 day ago)
    Hi,

    I think Im going nuts.

    I can launch CC apps on a network mounted home dir but cannot launch CC 2014 on the same.

    I can however launch CC 2014 if that home dir is local which is also non case sensitive if that even matters.

    Would any one mind telling me what Im doing wrong here.

    The oddity with Chrome and Earth which also work on a local home dir but not on a network mounted one got me going down this path.

    Im NFS BTW and have been running NFS mounted home dirs on our Mac fleet since, oh I guess 09.

    Nuggets of wisdom are hugely appreciated.

    OT and probably LA specific: the cloud makes everything better

    Mavericks - CC & CC 2014; local vs network home dirs

Do you get any error messages? Check /var/log/system.log and try opening from the terminal.. Assuming you've ruled out permission issues and such, there is probably an error message getting sent somewhere. If you're really desperate, try ethereal or wireshark (or whatever it's called these days) to trace the network file system traffic for files opened, and see where it stops, and if it stops due to an error. It's possible that CC 2014 is not opening due to a file or resource it can't access for some reason, and perhaps isn't being as user friendly as it could about popping a dialog when it encounters a problem, but you can maybe find out the issue it by looking at all the files it opens over the network while it's loading up, and focus on the ones it tries to access just before it dies. Or compare the list of files it opens between CC (which works) and CC 2014 (which doesn't) to see what it might be having trouble with.

    Mavericks - CC & CC 2014; local vs network home dirs
    posted by Brian Krusic on July 4, 2014, 1:45 p.m.
    Well, to be more exact, the EULA keeps cycling upon agreement.

    No errors in log as those are the very first I check.

    Good call on the sniffer, I briefly did tcpdump but frankly tire of this stuff already.  I used to run tcpdump and pipe to barnyard which slowed things down for me to read properly (gleaned from ISSA-LA magazine a very long time ago) but Ill attempt a GUI sniffer.

    What was supposed to be a simple setup turned into something that is well... that which is not a simple setup :)

    At any rate, since Im working today, Ill use a better sniffer (one easier to read like Wireshark) and report back.

    Happy 4th dude.

    Much appreciate the replies.

    Hola list.

    We're looking at MS PlayReady DRM. I.e. running the whole infrastructure inhouse: transcode, packaging, licensing and the domain management (i.e we'll handle subscriber licensing requests in a DC).

    Anyone got any hands on with it? Thus far I have not found much in the way of technical papers or even consulting professionals in this area.

    Looking for Meeting Coordinators and Locations
    posted by John Hickson on July 7, 2014, 12:03 p.m.

    All,

    It is that time again, looking for some help from within our community.

    We would like to start getting our meetings going again in all locations around the globe. It would be great if I had some fresh volunteers that are interested in helping with events in your area.

    We lost a few people that are either too busy and/or moving on with different jobs...

    Looking for people and locations to hold meetings in TORONTO, LOS ANGELES, SAN FRANSICSO/BAY AREA, LONDON, and SYDNEY.

    Looking for locations only in NEW YORK, MONTREAL, VANCOUVER, and PARIS

     

    While we are at it... If you have suggestions on what topics you would like to hear about etc - Please let me know.

     

    I'll be keeping all the info on a list, so either just reply to this e-mail and send to the group or send e-mail to me directly @ john.hickson@studiosysadmins.com

     

    Thank you;
    John Hickson

    DRM - what are you using and why do you hate it.
    posted by Julian Firminger on July 8, 2014, 6 a.m. (1 day ago)
    Hiya all.

    I mentioned MS PlayReady in a previous post and was understandably ignored. :)

    So, of you all:
    1) Are you doing DRM on content going out of your studios, are you providing unprotected masters only or are you using an external provider for DRM?
    2) What DRM systems are you using?
    3) Is it all a waste of time?

    Cheers,

    Hello all

    Does anyone on the board use Google Apps for Business?

    I've used it in the past and found it very functional, simple and a suitable replacement for Exchange.

    But that was many years ago.

    Question is:

    Is it still good?

    How was the transition from previous mail solution to Gmail?

    What's the general feeling on features?

    Do your staff like it?

    Thanks

    Jason

    Adobe CC updates require a whole new package?
    posted by  on July 8, 2014, 6:15 p.m. (1 day ago)

    Hey all,

     

    We had a look at the new package updates for CC and it seems the new updates are actually whole new applications.  In the package manager the ones we packaged before have gone to the archived versions section.

     

    We have the package as part of our Mavericks deployment in order for everything to be available to anyone needing the CC apps.

     

    If we can't update the package it looks like we are going to have to re-install the whole lot, quite time consuming.

     

    Has anyone else seen this or know of a way to inject the app updates into a current CC package?

     

    Cheers

    2K playback Nucoda - local disk suggestions
    posted by Julian Firminger on July 9, 2014, 4:45 a.m. (1 day ago)
    Hi list,

    About to roll out a Nucoda cc suite. Local disks, looking at 6 spindles in a RAID0 for the time being while we run in the system. LSI MegaRAID 9280.

    My question is, the plan was just hw raid and an NTFS volume. nothing special. Any reasons NTFS is a bad idea?

    In the past I've always provisioned fast SAN or other centralized storage for this kind of thing. Havent done it locally in donkeys years.

    Giving Away Dell PowerEdge 1950 Servers
    posted by Jeff Yana on July 9, 2014, 3:55 p.m. (1 day ago)
    I recently inherited two Gen 1 (2008) Dell PE 1950 servers from a client that just upgraded. Since I dont have a need for them I am wondering if any one local to LA might (I cant ship). 

    Below are the specs of the first system:
    • Dual Proc Xeons (5110)
    • 4GB RAM
    • Optical drive
    • 2x 3.5 inch drive bays (no drives)
    • Windows Server 2003 (OEM)
    • Dual PS
    • Rack kit and bezels
    The second system has only 2 GB of RAM, a single PS, and one drive sled.

    These could be useful in low traffic environments for something such as a license server, DNS or some other low impact application. Just pop in your drives, load up Linux and away you go.

    Let me know if anyone might be interested. You can email me directly.

    Cheers!

    Jeff

    posted by Greg Whynott on July 10, 2014, 10:25 a.m. (1 day ago)


    What are you guys using for remote file system syncing?

    We have a partner who will be working on a common production. They are considering storage solutions now and want to know what we need to keep a few directories in sync.

    I know the solution can be anywhere from 'zero' dollars to the sky. rsync, Avere, Riverbed, ( an endless list here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_file_synchronization_software ) etc... lots of choices but I'm wondering what is working for you and why you may of went with a commercial solution as opposed to one which is not, or the other way around.


    John: yet another potential topic for a meeting!!!

    Hi,

    Wondering if any one is running/has run a TurboIron 24 port 10G switch?

    And if so, had any issues with non Foundry branded SFPs for this trusty work horse.

    Ive been using HP branded SFPs but recently ran into an issue with using a Magma TB to PCIe chassis and Solarflare 10Gb NIC on a new Mac Pro.
