    Puppet... for Windows and Mac

    How does everyone feel about this? We all know it's wonderful for linux, and we're fortunate enough to be blessed heavy-with-the-linux - but is anyone using Puppet to manage Macs or Windows machines? Success? Horror? Thanks!

  • 03/26/15--22:05: flexlm sys requirements?
  • flexlm sys requirements?
    posted by J Bills on March 27, 2015, 1:05 a.m. (1 day ago)
    Hey all - I'm putting the finishing touches on a mobile rig and I'm curious if anyone knows the current sys requirements for a flexlm license server? It's escaping my google searches at the moment.

    I'm wondering how small the footprint can be - maybe a raspberry pi 2? Or if I'd have to step up to a Zotac box or something like that w/ an Atom?

    I've got just enough room in the rack behind a 1U fileserver that's not too long - something paperback size would be ideal and wedge in there nicely. Trying to keep this all bundled up in a tight package. At the same time, it has to be reliable in an always-on situation.

    At the moment it would only have to serve up Nuke and maybe Silhouette (which might be RLM? I'd have to look) - but to future proof it, it might need to be able to serve a couple more things, perhaps vray, etc.

    If anyone has a link to the sys requirements, please post. thanks in advance

    Hey guys,

    I'm looking to upgrade my X200 cluster from OneFS 7.0.x to 7.2.x. I was wondering what peoples experiences have been with 7.2 and the upgrade process if you went through one.

    In particular I'm interested to hear if there are any complications with CIFS after upgrading.

    Thanks

    Xyratex F6500 with mismatched controllers
    posted by Rob LaRose on April 1, 2015, 12:25 p.m. (3 days ago)

    Hi folks,

    Ive got an F6500 with somehow mismatched controller component versions (e.g., GEM on one is 175 and on the other is 176), and as a result Ive been unable to update firmware on either controller.

    RAID FW version on both at the moment is 3.12.14 (UID 3.2.1 level), so I think im trying to get them both to UID 3.2.3 before going on to UID 3.3.

    Anybody got experience wrestling these beasts and want to give me a hint?

    Assuming you can shutdown the array on demand and flashing via the serial port try the following:

    Shutdown array
    Remove upper controller.
    Boot up array and flash lower controller.
    Shutdown array.
    Remove lower controller and put the upper controller removed earlier in the lower slot.
    Flash controller.
    Shutdown array.
    You can then put the controllers back in the correct order and power up.

  • AT&T Video Fiber?
    posted by Rob LaRose on April 1, 2015, 2:45 p.m. (3 days ago)
    Good afternoon!

    One of our companies is being required by film studio clients to use AT&T Video Fiber, but weve been unable to find anyone at AT&T who knows what that is or how we get it.

    Any of you have this?  Can someone put me in touch with a rep I can call (today) about it?

    Also interested in knowing from anyone whos using it what the connectivity options are.. do we need to have AT&T physically bring fiber into our facility, or is it a service we can hop onto or peer with via our existing fiber provider?

    Thanks for any insights!

    Best way to have consistent pathnames in OSX
    posted by Greg Dickie on April 1, 2015, 3:05 p.m. (3 days ago)
    Hi,

      Being somewhat new to managing a bunch of OS X machines Im wondering what the best way to ensure common pathnames (for render jobs, etc) is. At the moment we are relying in users to do the right thing which is usually not a great idea. They are all on a samba controlled AD domain and Im reading we can do profiles in Open Directory. Is that the way or should we go with a puppet recipe?

    TIA,
    Greg

    StudioSysAdmins-Discuss Digest, Vol 67, Issue 2
    posted by  on April 2, 2015, 1:10 p.m. (2 days ago)
    AT&T does offer video services (these days its typically a 1.5Gb circuit - which, with some magical hardware, works well as a data circuit).  Ive only ever connected to their network from third parties.  I know of one or two that uses the AT&T network to handle traffic, and would likely be able to work with you (or your client) on the last mile.  Contact me off list if you need to speak with them.

    Depending on a) where your existing fiber pops to and b) the size of your existing fiber (or rather, an open strand/wavelength) you may or may not need an additional local loop.  For uncompressed, hardware could be as simple as a video to fiber converter with the right wavelength.

    Subject: [SSA-Discuss] AT&T Video Fiber?
    Date: April 1, 2015 at 2:43:23 PM EDT


    Good afternoon!

    One of our companies is being required by film studio clients to use AT&T Video Fiber, but weve been unable to find anyone at AT&T who knows what that is or how we get it.

    Any of you have this?  Can someone put me in touch with a rep I can call (today) about it?

    Also interested in knowing from anyone whos using it what the connectivity options are.. do we need to have AT&T physically bring fiber into our facility, or is it a service we can hop onto or peer with via our existing fiber provider?

    Thanks for any insights!

    Rob

    posted by Andrew Klaassen on April 7, 2015, 4:25 p.m.
    We've had two recent failures, on completely different systems - different hardware, different OS, different controllers, different design - where a single failed SAS drive managed to lock up the entire system. I don't recall ever having a fibre channel drive do that. However, that's not very many data points to go on, so I'd be interested in hearing about the experience of others. Anybody else have a similar experience? Did similar flakiness happen during the early years of fibre channel?

    Active Archive solution with an Isilon?
    posted by Rick on April 7, 2015, 10:35 p.m.

    We are looking for an active archive solution for a 400TB Isilon.  We currently have nothing speced out for nearline or archive other than the desire for stuff to end up as 2 copies of LTO6 eventually.

    I'd love something automated like and Active Archive solution, but that won't cost more than the Isilon, but will interface with it.

    Originally we were looking at adding a tier of larger/slower drives for a nearline/duplicate directly on the Isilon and then just go to LTO from that, but I wonder if there is a better solution for the money.

    Thanks,

    Rick

    Hi,

     Kind stuck between a rock and a hard place.  We are at a temporary space that has a 200Mbps download, but only a 20Mbps upload.  Would like to find a service that we can use to upload our assets in Los Angeles.  Any pointers?

    Isilon peeps,

    I'm investigtating geart for a roll out Isilon storage for our Nucoda colour suits. I'm wondering:
    • What 10G NICs people are using
    • What kind of performacne I can expect
    • Any tricks/gotchas/config on the Isilon side (other than 9000mtu)

    We're x400 nodes currently on 7.0.2.9
