    Maya2015 slow startup with MAYA_PLUG_IN_PATH over VPN
    posted by Jean-Francois Panisset on Feb. 8, 2016, 6:05 p.m. (1 day ago)
    What's the details of your VPN connection? Bandwidth / latency? Maya is very "stat" happy, and loves to repeatedly poke around any folders you add to its path, so pointing it to a remote folder mounted over a low bandwidth / high latency connection is going to make it very unhappy. Try running "Windows Procmon" to see how often it is poking around that remote folder, you might be horrified.

    Presumably you want to pick up plugins that are centrally installed, I would suggest that you will do much better setting up some kind of rsync / robosync synchronization to a local copy on your machine.

    Hello
    I'm experimenting with running maya with connecting to network through OpenVPN.

    My setup is a fresh windows7, OpenVPN, fresh and default maya2015_SP5 installed to local harddrive. This starts in about 20 secs.
    Now, when I add envvar MAYA_PLUG_IN_PATH pointing to a folder accessible through VPN, and then start maya, it has a long period of unresponsiveness just after GUI shows up. So it's like 20secs to boot and then about 2 minutes of doing nothing when I can barely move viewport or select menus.
    This is with empty folder containing no plugins at all - and with my real env setup maya takes forever to start.
    What's interesting adding this folder to MAYA_PLUG_IN_PATH after maya is launched causes no such freezes - but unfortunatelly this is not an option for me.

    any clues ?

    MPAA approval for Office 365?
    posted by Mike Braico on Feb. 11, 2016, 2:32 p.m. (1 day ago)

    Can anyone comment on the MPAA point of view about Microsoft Office 365 for document sharing and email? 

     

    Did this come up in any recent audits? 

     

    What studios are already using Office 365 for documents and email that are passing MPAA audits. 

     

    Thanks

    We use Office 365 for email and have passed multiple studio audits. It is not accessible from our production systems so users have a separate "admin" PC for this access.

    If you want a Slack-like system but don't want to use a hosted service
    you could try Mattermost:

    http://www.mattermost.org/

    It's practically identical but Open Source.

    As long as your production systems (those that have access to production content of any kind) don't have access to it, you can do whatever you want (just like using google apps). That being said, office 365 did provide (up until recently, and presumably still now?) a "private cloud" (on-prem) version you could install, typically for large enterprises, which would be fully compliant with an audit.

    The rules are pretty simple for these kinds of offerings - either you:
    - can ONLY access them outside your "content" network (so for instance no one has access to email without going through a VDI or an alternate machine/device)
    - can ONLY access them within your content network (so no one has webmail/etc. access form home, on their phone, or anywhere outside your content network), typically meaning it's a hosted service on-prem (or within an extension of your local network).

    F.

                    Waking up this old thread on systemd, as it's becoming
                    more and more ubiquitous, relevant, and hard for sysadmins
                    to ignore, as it manages just about everything now.

                    I've been researching systemd quite a bit the last
                    few days using Centos 7.2 as a test bed.

                    I found this video interesting, in particular because
                    the designer of systemd explains the design (Lennart Poettering):
                   
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S9YmaNuvw5U

                    I expect systemd has come a long way since 2014,
                    and while still evolving, might be more stable now.

                    I won't weigh in with an opinion, don't wanna
                    go there just yet, still formulating one.

                    I will say anyone who admins linux will want to become
                    more familiar with this beast.. like it or hate it.

                    The video gets into many new unix kernel features
                    (e.g. cgroups) and cpu/mem management features that
                    I think many sysadmins will find useful for managing
                    load and system resources.

    This is a lot more serious than a hardcoded password
    Remote code exec
    https://blog.exodusintel.com/2016/02/10/firewall-hacking/

    The algorithm for re-assembling IKE payloads fragmented with the Cisco fragmentation protocol contains a bounds-checking flaw that allows a heap buffer to be overflowed with attacker-controlled data. A sequence of payloads with carefully chosen parameters causes a buffer of insufficient size to be allocated in the heap which is then overflowed when fragment payloads are copied into the buffer. Attackers can use this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code on affected devices. This flaw affects IKE versions 1 and 2,

    We use Office 365 for email and have passed multiple studio audits. It is not accessible from our production systems so users have a separate "admin" PC for this access.

    If you want a Slack-like system but don't want to use a hosted service
    you could try Mattermost:

    http://www.mattermost.org/

    It's practically identical but Open Source.

    As long as your production systems (those that have access to production content of any kind) don't have access to it, you can do whatever you want (just like using google apps). That being said, office 365 did provide (up until recently, and presumably still now?) a "private cloud" (on-prem) version you could install, typically for large enterprises, which would be fully compliant with an audit.

    The rules are pretty simple for these kinds of offerings - either you:
    - can ONLY access them outside your "content" network (so for instance no one has access to email without going through a VDI or an alternate machine/device)
    - can ONLY access them within your content network (so no one has webmail/etc. access form home, on their phone, or anywhere outside your content network), typically meaning it's a hosted service on-prem (or within an extension of your local network).

    F.

                    Waking up this old thread on systemd, as it's becoming
                    more and more ubiquitous, relevant, and hard for sysadmins
                    to ignore, as it manages just about everything now.

                    I've been researching systemd quite a bit the last
                    few days using Centos 7.2 as a test bed.

                    I found this video interesting, in particular because
                    the designer of systemd explains the design (Lennart Poettering):
                   
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S9YmaNuvw5U

                    I expect systemd has come a long way since 2014,
                    and while still evolving, might be more stable now.

                    I won't weigh in with an opinion, don't wanna
                    go there just yet, still formulating one.

                    I will say anyone who admins linux will want to become
                    more familiar with this beast.. like it or hate it.

                    The video gets into many new unix kernel features
                    (e.g. cgroups) and cpu/mem management features that
                    I think many sysadmins will find useful for managing
                    load and system resources.

    https://blog.exodusintel.com/2016/02/10/firewall-hacking/

    The algorithm for re-assembling IKE payloads fragmented with the Cisco fragmentation protocol contains a bounds-checking flaw that allows a heap buffer to be overflowed with attacker-controlled data. A sequence of payloads with carefully chosen parameters causes a buffer of insufficient size to be allocated in the heap which is then overflowed when fragment payloads are copied into the buffer. Attackers can use this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code on affected devices. This flaw affects IKE versions 1 and 2,

    Cloud Rendering - open sourcing our technology - Looking for interested studios for open source effort
    posted by Francois Ruty on Feb. 12, 2016, 11:31 a.m. (1 day ago)

    Hello, I write here since I represent a startup who used to work on a cloud rendering technology. Basically we have a SMB proxy that enables studios to perform runtime asset syncing (your render nodes import assets on the fly, as the renderer tries to access them).

    The implication of that is that you can use any render nodes in any facility in the world, and have them act as if they were located in your local pipeline. With the SMB proxy, you can show to your remote render node your local file structure, and as the remote render nodes tries to open the files it needs, those files are transparently imported with a high speed file transfer system.

    For analogy, our software enables you to set up "Avere-like" cache, on top of ubuntu machines or VMs.

    We are now shifting ou focus to applications (we are working on a 3D application prototype) and we are still sitting on our SMB proxy technology, which performed successfully on several projects so far. The reason we shift our focus is that we initially planned to provide turnkey render nodes but this proved to be not scalable enough for us. So we decided to stop providing render nodes. But our technology works well and we are considering building a community around it.

    We are considering making it open source, we would stay the owners of the code, but studios who signal themselves as interested could use the software, access the source code, and possibly collectively improve it where necessary. I'd like to emphasize that the software is production-proven, we're not talking about a prototype here.

    Those who are interested or just have questions can email me at fruty@seekscale.com or write here

     

    thanks

    Hi,

    As one of those customers who used it, I will vouch for it. Regardless of the subjective quality of the film, we were able to render the majority of it using this technology. We were able to work through the issues and have a good, reliable solution in place If you have any questions, feel free to hit me up.

    Thanks Francois; looking forward to seeing what you do next.

    HP Dreamcolor LP2840zx on Windows 10 x64 and Macintosh OS 10.10
    posted by Andrew Zhou on Feb. 14, 2016, 10:12 p.m. (2 days ago)

    Hello!

     

    Has anyone successfully calibrated a HP Dreamcolor LP2840zx on Windows 10 (64bit) or Macintosh OS 10.10?

     

    I'm using a XRite i1 Display Pro and I've tried using both the HP Dreamcolor Calibration Solution 2.2.0 and the HP Dreamcolor Advanced Profiling Solution from XRite(forMAC).

     

    For the Mac(Macpro2013) issues are:

    HP Dreamcolour Calibration Solution 2.2.0 wont run on it.

    HP Advanced Profiling Solution will run but it cannot detect the USB connectionbetween the CPU and the Monitor.

     

    For the PC(Windows 10 64bit)

    HP Dreamcolor Calibration Solution 2.2.0 will run but XRites i1DisplayPro cannot be detected. This is true even after XRite's Device Services is turned off.

    As suggested here : http://www.xrite.com/hp-dreamcolor/support/kb4980

     

    Best Regards!

    Quantum - Storage Disk Lisence " What does it do ?"
    posted by Andreas Martin Aanerud on Feb. 17, 2016, 4:05 a.m.
    Hey!

    We have our Stornext 5 here, and I'm wondering about backing some of the Managed systems out, to a "medium" slow server, like a NAS before having it on tape.

    Anyone done that ?

    is it theStorage Disk license I need ? or other licensing ?

    Best

    But at least it finally has a kryptonite:

    I'll bet the rw speeds are horrendous right now but could this be the death of tape in the future? 350TB on a little quartz plate!

    So, how's glibc updating going for everyone?
    posted by Will Rosecrans on Feb. 17, 2016, 2:35 p.m. (1 day ago)
    http://arstechnica.com/security/2016/02/extremely-severe-bug-leaves-dizzying-number-of-apps-and-devices-vulnerable/




    I don't think I saw this pop up here, so in case anybody hasn't head, getaddrinfo() in glibc is vulnerable to a buffer overrun that can potentially lead to remote code execution. And all you have to do is query a domain name that is being served by an evil DNS server. Anything that uses glibc's getaddrinfo is potentially vulnerable, including common things like ssh, curl, wget, etc. Anybody think they've spotted something in the wild yet?

    Ubuntu has an updated package out now, and I am sure other OS vendors do as well.



    Happy patchday!

    Apple Device Enrolment Program
    posted by Shane McEwan on Feb. 19, 2016, 5:45 a.m.
    G'day! We have a growing number of iDevices supplied by and to be used for $WORK. I'd like to manage these things centrally and came across the Apple Device Enrolment Program (DEP)[1] which seems to do exactly what I want. I've registered for it and now have access to the web based dashboard but it wants me to set up a Mobile Device Management (MDM) server. Nowhere does it explain what an MDM server is nor where to get one from. Some Googling seems to imply that an MDM server is some third party software that I need to run which is actually responsible for the management of the devices rather than Apple's software. We're use Sophos for antivirus, etc and it seems to have some sort of MDM functionality but, annoyingly, doesn't seem to work with DEP. Has anyone on the list tried DEP before? Any recommendations for MDM software? [1] http://help.apple.com/deployment/programs/#/tes6a88f692e Thanks! Shane.
