    Needed - 64-bit Linux RSUN License Server
    posted by John Hickson on Sept. 11, 2014, 5:45 p.m. (1 day ago)

    We had to update one of our license servers today and found we don't have a proper copy of the RSUN RLM server for 64-bit Linux.

    I have RLM but just missing the RSUN ISV application.

    Anyone have a copy?

    I am looking to better understand how other facilities approach systems and support staffing.  Are there any metrics that you use to guide or even justify your hiring?

    I'm curious if anyone can also share what are your ratios of support & systems staff per user, production or facility size?

    ISILON - SMB connection issues
    posted by Fabrice Altman on Sept. 15, 2014, 10:45 a.m. (1 day ago)

    Hello,

     

    wondering if anybody is experiencing similar issues with OneFS v7.0.2.9 + patch-127364 + patch-131570.

    We updated about a month ago from 7.01.4 and 7.0.2.9 was recommended by Isilon as a yearly maintenance for SMB. 

    We have an open SR with them over this but not making much headway.

     

    A/ The SMB connections take a long time to be killed on the server even after the clients are shutdown.

    Some connections from client services (render farm + backup utility) are never killed so connection count keeps creeping up until the nodes behave like they cannot find the data (250+ connections/node).

     

    B/ Today, we had to restart the cluster. Some clients had very poor access to the data. Browsing was OK but opening, saving, copying files was very slow on some clients.

    Bizarrely some clients connected to the same node were OK, some were not. The cluster GUI did not show any kind of unusual stress. Connection count was average.

     

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    F.

    Hello SSA,

    I was hoping to get some feedback and direction on your experiences with archiving. We have around 260TB of storage being used at any given time. Most nights around 20 TB worth of project data is updated to LTO 4, 5 or 6 (based in archive). We outgrew our backup and archive solution about 5 years ago (ugh) and looked at implementing a new product that would magically fix all of our woes. In the end, this product is too unstable and we have yet to implement said product into our productions after 6 months of working with the vendors.

    What archive solutions do you use and what do you recommend? We archive everything from standard still retouching psd files to LOTS of r3d's and phantom footage and we often have to search and restore projects from many months back.

    How is Sohonet, StoreNext, Glacier? Right now I am open to anything. We have a 10GB infrastructure and a Quantum i6000 with 700 slots we would love to use, but if something else is better then great.

    I understand that this is a loaded question as no solution is right for everyone and the answer is not that simple, but just looking for some places to start would be helpful.

    Thanks

    Creative Cloud - short term usage
    posted by  on Sept. 15, 2014, 7:50 p.m. (1 day ago)

    Hey there,

     

    I was just wondering if anyone has successfully negotiated with Adobe about short term rentals of products for CC apps.  We have a number of art / design people just running PS CC subscriptions, but occasionally they may have a need for an additional product (say Illustrator for 2 months or After Effects.. anything really to make my point).  I don’t want to sign up an artist for these extra products for 6 months to our anniversary date, I just want to maybe add it for 2 months and then drop it again. 

     

    If this isn’t a done thing, what do you do about these infrequent requests for applications, do you see these sorts of requests or do you have set people with established application sets at their disposal, do you just roll out an old version of an app for these sort of requests.

     

    Would like to hear your experiences with this.

     

    Cheers

    StudioSysAdmins-Discuss Digest, Vol 60, Issue 17
    posted by Terry Dale on Sept. 16, 2014, 12:10 p.m.
    We have had to do the same thing, we set up a bunch of individual accounts. For some reason Adobe will not let you run a team account on a month to month. They will tell you "yes you can pay month to month" but you still have to commit to the licenses for a year and then pay a penalty if you cancel. I think they would find they would make more money if they will let us just do month to month with no commitment. Production will pay a bit of a higher price for the flexibility. So far I have found the CC has made our jobs harder, not easier but I am sure that all depends on your situation. What other experiences have people had? Would be curious to see how our community is using the CC offerings from Adobe. Does anyone like it? -T Terry Dale, V.P.

    Strange error from FASP: error code 34304
    posted by Craig Dibble on Sept. 16, 2014, 1:05 p.m.
    Hi folks (esp Michelle),

    We're getting an odd error syncing data across sites:

    ascp failed with error code 34304


    This is on a pull operation, and is repeatable, but we don't know what is causing it. Has anyone seen anything similar or able to shed any light on this?

    We're trying to confirm that this error is definitely coming from the Aspera but we can't find anything in the logs.

    I did find a list of the fasp error codes, but it only goes up to 51, so not much use there :-p

    The technical details:

    Aspera Enterprise Server version 3.3.3.76955
    ascp version 3.4.2.83260


    I'm passing this on second hand from our software team, so if more info is needed please let me know!

    Cheers,
    Craig

    If you don't use wget or have a need to discover your NAT'd IP address from the command line from time to time, bail now.


    Thre was a time when you could do a wget on one of the many websites which will tell you what your IP is (think whatismyip.com). Then they started looking for browser identities to prevent people from scripting stuff to automate this. perhaps their web servers were getting hammered.

    here is a 'trick' to make wget announce itself as a web browser so you can collect this info from the command line without the use of a browser/desktop.

    vi your bash_profile or similar and add this:


    function wgets()
    {
    local H='--header'
    wget $H='Accept-Language: en-us,en;q=0.5' $H='Accept: text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,*/*;q=0.8' $H='Connection: keep-alive' -U 'Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:10.0.2) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/10.0.2' --referer=http://www.google.com/"$@";
    }


    next source it or log out/in:

    source .bash_profile



    now you should be able to collect your IP as the internet sees it:

    g.whynott@df001 ~ $ wget -qO- ipecho.net/plain ; echo
    38.122.184.162

    (that is a capital OH in the wget)

    -g

    StorNext SAN Unaccounted for space, permissions issues, and extended attributes
    posted by Ryan McKeague on Sept. 16, 2014, 7:43 p.m. (1 day ago)

    My facility has a 216TB StorNext SAN that has several vexing issues.

    1) Certain Windows clients write files to the SAN that differ from all other clients. Here's what I know: We have Mac and Windows clients. ACLs are enabled on the StorNext volume. All mac clients are admin users with UID 501. Mac users connect using Xsan. Windows clients use the StorNext configration software. All Any file created on any Mac can be read by any other mac and most Windows clients without issue. Most Windows clients can also create files that are accessible by all other clients (Mac and Windows). Here's where it gets weird: some Windows clients create files that the other clients can't read and these same clients that create the unreadable files also can't read files created by other clients. And the Windows clients that have these issues are, as far as I can tell, identical in every way to the other Windows clients that don't have any problems - all are running Windows 7 Profressional.

    2) As I mentioned the SAN volume is 216TB. I manually calculated the size of all directories on the SAN, which was 175TB. Finder reports that there is 20TB of free space, but where is the other 21TB (175+20 = 195, not 216!). I have emptied all trashcans on all clients (Windows and Mac) and even deleted the RECYCLE.BIN directory that Windows creates. I know our SAN is quite fragmented, could such fragmentation cause 20TB of free space lost?

    3) Extended attribute issue - recently the Xsan volume will become hidden on Mac clients. I have found it to be related to a finder extended attribute being added to the volume and a simple xattr -c /Volumes/SAN unhides it and fixes the issue. This started happening supsiciously close to the time we started rolling out Mavericks. Has anyone else experienced this issue or have any idea as to its cause?

    Thanks!

    in a distant past, i have seen users work on "their desktop" for convinience, and then copy/move the files over to the SAN. when that happens, the default permissions are different (more restrictive) than if they were created initially somewhere else. maybe something to look into?

    Which version of stornext do you have on the MDC's vs windows client vs Xsan.

    For 2) you say its 216TB total, I assume thats as root on the MDC?
    Some sort of "root only can write the last 10%" quota? as 21TB is suspiciously close to 10% of the total volume.
    Try creating a "user" on the MDC and see what the freespace is then?
