  • 09/22/15--20:00: New Mac Pro and Avocent HMX
  • New Mac Pro and Avocent HMX
    posted by Ken Spickler on Sept. 22, 2015, 11 p.m. (2 days ago)
    Does anyone on this list use an Avocent HMX KVM system and have you had any luck using newer Mac Pros on it? We're trying to add one to our HMX system but can only get video from the single HDMI port. Using the mini DisplayPort connector for the 2nd display doesn't yield any video. (The Mac "sees" the HMX on the DisplayPort, but no video is displayed). We've tried going from DispayPort to DVI and to VGA but it still won't display an image. It's a bit of a drag trying to run MediaComposer on a single display. Thoughts? ---Ken To unsubscribe from the list send a blank e-mail to mailto:studiosysadmins-discuss-request@studiosysadmins.com?subject=unsubscribe

  • 09/25/15--08:38: File Transfer Services
  • File Transfer Services
    posted by Brian Smith on Sept. 25, 2015, 11:38 a.m.

    Hi All,

     

    Looking at what people are using in terms of file transfer services connecting multiple office locations.

    We will have 4 seperate offices throughtout the US and are looking at what is a reliable service to transfer

    Project Files from one location to the other.

    We are looking to get the project from point A to B as fast as possible, over bandwidth available.

    The Projects will range from 5gb -50gb with multiple video/audio and project files, varying in size.

    I know Aspera and Signiant are big players in this arena , wondered what the general feedback is from using them insuch a scenario,

    what kind of ballpark cost are we looking at,how reliable the services are etc.

    and what is the real world transfer times we can expect to get for say a 10gb project sent from NY to LA with both locations having a 500mb dedicated line.

     

    Any help appreciated as im new into this arena

     

    thanks

     

    Brian

    Uknown characters appearing in filename
    posted by Ali Poursamadi on Sept. 25, 2015, 7:40 p.m. (1 day ago)
    Hi,

    I'm experiencing a difficult to track/reproduce issue with finder and I'm posting out here to see if you have ever experienced it.
    An artist creates a folder in finder on an smb share. Name of the folder seems to be OK in the finder, but mounting the same folder over NFS, reports the folder name with extra characters at beginning an end. In the most recent case, Folder name had a \177 character appended to the begining and 7 U+F01C characters at the end.
    In this case : MS080_v13_move_02 vs `\177MS080_v13_move_02'
    I'm not sure if it's relevant but the second name is 32 bytes long if we include extra characters and count the U+F01C as 2 bytes.

    Any ideas ?

    Palo Alto -- better blocking methodology?
    posted by Rob LaRose on Sept. 28, 2015, 4:20 p.m. (1 day ago)
    Hi gang,

    Found ourselves adding individual troublemaking apps to our security rules this morning, and wishing there was a better way.

    Anybody else using Palo Alto and come up with a good app filter methodology?  E.g., Id love to block encrypted tunnel apps, even just their risk level 4/5, but then Id lose ssl.

    Short of hand-picking apps to allow/deny, anybody have a good dynamic way of keeping the baddies at bay thats more useful than Palo Altos classifications?

    Thanks!

    Rob

    Autodesk's new licensing scheme in a Linux pipeline
    posted by Ragnar Brynjúlfsson on Sept. 30, 2015, 4:35 a.m.

    Like many studios, we don't install our software in $PATH using installers or .rpm's, and have set up a system that sets up the correct environment for different projects. Maya has always been a hassle to install that way (I wish it wold just ship as  a tar.gz), and I suspect it will get even worse when they move over to the Desktop Subscription model for all users. Currently we have a number of floating licenses, that will keep working at least for a year, but we will likely need more some time in the future...and these will be forced onto the Desktop Subscription model.

    How are other studios planning on handling this?

    Autodesk's new licensing scheme in a Linux pipeline
    posted by Jimmy Christensen on Sept. 30, 2015, 6 a.m.
    Hi Ragnar,

    My guess is that this is a request from management to save money on the subscriptions. Do yourself a favor and try to convince them otherwise :) Nothing good will come out of it.

    Last I tried was with Mudox for Linux and it had something to do with running a program as root to setup the licensing paths. We only distribute this with a discalimer that it needs special setup ot be able to run. Nothing I would ever do for our Maya installation.

  • Osx/linux authentication
    posted by  on Oct. 2, 2015, 4:25 p.m. (1 day ago)
    I have about 50 users right now, primarily using osx. Apple centric really since we also manage a lot of IOS devices. We are also heavy on AWS use. We are ramping up our linux clients due to project expansion. Right now the osx machines are authenticating via Open Directory but since I'm introducing linux into the mix, I think we will need something more that can accommodate the linux clients nicely. I've been researching about OD and Linux integration and there's not a lot of info available out there. I'm also not too ecstatic about Apple's seemingly lack of enthusiasm on Data Center tools. I am a little hesitant on using MS Active Directory since we will not have any windows machines (maybe one or two but that's about it). But if this is the only reliable way to authenticate OSX/Linux machines then I will do so. I am looking for ideas on how people do currently do this. My google searches comes up with "Golden Triangle" setup. Have you done something like this before? Thank you! -gab To unsubscribe from the list send a blank e-mail to mailto:studiosysadmins-discuss-request@studiosysadmins.com?subject=unsubscribe

    Alright - I'm opening it. Who's running an EL7 distro? Who's working on moving to an EL7 distro? Alternatively; Who's ditching EL for Ubuntu after EL6? DY To unsubscribe from the list send a blank e-mail to mailto:studiosysadmins-discuss-request@studiosysadmins.com?subject=unsubscribe

  • Experience with XenData?
    posted by Jonah Lefkowitz on Oct. 6, 2015, 3:21 p.m. (7 days ago)

    Hi guys, just signed up for the site, and this is my first post.  Please let me know if I'm violating any forum ediquette.

    We're looking to audition a new LTO based archive system. StorageDNA is too buggy, and not working out.

    Thinking about Xendata, wondering if you guys have any first hand experience with it.

    Requirements would be:

    • must work with our existing Spectra T380 over FC
    • must offer some kind of MAM or CatDV integration, or be a MAM itself
    • LTFS would be nice, but we're not finding performance with small files to be fast enough (10-50Mbit/s ?)
    • Easy WebGui a plus but doesn't need to be artist drive-able.  I don't mind if all restore requests go through IT.
    • Duplicate to AUX tape automatically.  verify aux hash with source tape or source data.
    • verify with source files (understanding a second IO hit)
    • Sub-$50,000.  This is essentially a stop gap between right now and a longer term project to archive to multi-site object storage.
    • Can't be Commvault, sDNA, Strongbox, or Strongbox rebranded as Fujifilm Dternity.
    • Lots of automation. i can't babysit this thing.

    Thank for any insight.

    -Jonah
