    Shotgun RV not working on Windows 10
    posted by Jonas Lear on Feb. 23, 2017, 12:41 p.m.

    Hey all,

    First post to the site, so I apologize if this is in the wrong spot, etc.

    Anyone else had the issue of not getting RV to run on Windows 10? We have a fresh Surface Pro model with Win10 and neither the 4.2 or 6.2 versions will open at all. Checked RV's website, not really much help there. Assuming it's some pre-requisites I'm missing, but the basics are already installed: .Net, distributables, etc.

     

    Thanks!

    Nuke 10 hangs while loading on Win10
    posted by Jonas Lear on Feb. 23, 2017, 12:44 p.m.

    Hey all, only my second post, so my bad if something is submitted incorrectly.

    We got a brand new Win10 machine in and we installed Nuke 10. We noticed that Nuke takes much, much longer to open than if it was on a Win7 machine. All the prereq's are installed, QT is on there for playback, etc. Anyone else experience this?

    Thanks!

    Yet another home for Ruckus (and Extreme Networks)

    As predirected, Broadcom is selling off Ruckus and the IP switching part of Broacade to Arris. Talk about feeling unloved...

  • 03/01/17--11:05: Isilon smart pools.
  • Isilon smart pools.
    posted by Greg Whynott on March 1, 2017, 2:05 p.m. (1 day ago)
    If you don't administer an Isilon system, bail now!



    While a ticket was open with Isilon, support pondered out loud why we were not using one pool "i1" and instead had multiple pools made up for both NFS and SMB on a few different VLANS.

    eg:

    i1-vl220-nfs pool
    i1-vl220-smb pool

    i1-vl130-nfs pool
    i1-vl130-smb pool

    as opposed to just "i1" with IPs in the pool from both VLANs.





    We revived 3 different answers from Isilon support from 3 different people,

    1st was to use the separate protocol pools,
    2nd was to only use one name (i1),
    3rd (the safe answer!) "depends on your pipeline". but without elaboration.

    I'd like to take all the IPs from all the "protocol pools" and dump them into one name "i1" as it sounds the easiest and cleanest to manage. We have no policy which would require a different access method or related between the protocols.


    Does anyone here have any insight on why you would use one over the other?


    many thanks!

    Hello Sys Admins

    Anyone know of a seating chart application, open source that is pretty good. Currently we are using Visio to create seating charts but with people moving left and right in a studios company it's becoming tidious and annoying.

    I know there are some paid (quite $$$) but I am looking for a open source customizeable application that can be edit through a web console. If anyone knows of anything please let me know.

    Thanks

    Flame 2018 AdLM feature strings
    posted by Jean-Francois Panisset on March 2, 2017, 9 p.m. (1 day ago)
    Flame 2018 now uses AdLM instead of the old-school Discreet FlexLM stuff, so no more "dlhostid". Seems to work fine, the licenses just dropped into our Maya license server. One slight annoyance is that the feature strings are "opaque" and are neither documented at:

    https://knowledge.autodesk.com/search-result/caas/sfdcarticles/sfdcarticles/2017-FLEXnet-feature-codes-for-Autodesk-products.html

    nor have they added to licenseparser.com. For those who care about these kinds of things (maybe you have some in-house licensing monitoring stuff), here's what I think I've figured out so far:

    86994WTGTWY_F: Autodesk Wiretap Gateway AdLM
    86995LSTRBRN_F: Autodesk Lustre Renderer AdLM
    86988A250_F: Autodesk Flame AdLM

    Amazon has aquired Thinbox Software
    posted by Saker Klippsten on March 6, 2017, 2:40 p.m.
    Interesting...We don't use deadline. and we are not using much Krakatoa since we have moved to mostly Houdini for fluid/particals requirements.

    My Dark Mind begins to wonder..how might a giant Like Amazon use this to their advantage for content being produced for Amazon Studios..... discounts on software or render compute?

    Or charging more to those who create content mostly for their competitors.

    The world is getting smaller and smaller.




    http://www.thinkboxsoftware.com/

    *******************

    We're excited to announce that weve been acquired by Amazon!

    We'll be joining the Amazon Web Services family, and we're looking forward to working together to deliver exciting customer offerings.

    At this point, it's still business as usual for us. Well continue to provide you, our customers, with remarkable support whether you work on-prem, in the cloud or both.

    Thank you so much for your business, and stay tuned for even more great things to come!

  • Dell ... Sigh.
    posted by Greg Whynott on March 6, 2017, 6:25 p.m. (1 day ago)
    Installed proxmox on a few servers, going to kick the tires on that and see if we can move away from ESX. We don't require any of its feature set really, beyond migration, snapshots and a few other things which seem to be standards on any non-vmware solution these days... The technology is mature enough at this point, I'm ok giving it a go...


    Started noticing some network issues, needed to update the firmware.

    Updated the firmware on one of them via the "life cycle" thing, It claims it can download firmware over the webs. cool. It actually doesn't work that well.

    We have 4 of these machines, all verbatim, from the same batch, rolled off the line on the same day. 2 of them can update over the internet, the other 2 refuse to. Not a license, entitlement or any other issue. All plugged into the same switch, etc...


    to the point... sorry...


    Support says 'download and use the disk image instead'. So I do. Find the disk which EXACTLY describes my machine model and generation vintage. All I want to do is update the 10Gbit NIC firmware..


    Its been 5 hours and it is still going! :) No one said to me at dell support, nor did it mention it anywhere else, that the process is VERY long.. Very long..


    so here is my problem with Dell's methods...

    They built the machine, they developed this software called "lifecycle controller" which is suppose to inventory your machine, know what hardware is installed and what versions of firmware/software/middleware is associated.

    With all this "value" add, one would think Dell's very own installer/updater would have a CLUE. no sir. :) no clues

    Apparently the updater see a hard drive, instead of querying the hard drive and asking it for a vendor string or similar, they try EVERY FIRMWARE IN EXISTENCE till one installs.

    SAS Controller, same thing, instead of asking the controller what it is, they try and install a plethora of versions till they hit one it'll accept. Maybe I have it wrong but that is what is sure appears to be doing, check out the picture included...

    So to update my NIC and SAS controller, I have been waiting here for 5 hours. lord knows how long it'll take, i'm heading out now. its on 103 of 121 attempts at finding a compatible firmware.

    Brute force for the win....


    I'm glad these servers were not yet in production yet, any reasonable guess at how long it would take to upgrade the firmware would of been blown out of the water. The take away here is if you have dell servers and can't update them online, using the disk image is going to take a VERY long time, book a weekend maintenance window, no lunch hour updates. :)

    posted by  on March 9, 2017, noon (1 day ago)

    Anyone use Google Cloud or similar for DR?  Google Coldline at .007/GB is pretty attractive.  Investigating whether or not we keep rollin with LTO5/6 or move to a cloud based DR model. 

     

    Ive used gsutil and Im happy with the speeds, but a front end for monitoring, alerts, etc is a requirement.  Ive looked at Unitrends, but it seems they arent quite there yet with their cloud integrations.  Cloudberry seems like its pushed more towards managed service providers though it might work.

     

    Anybody else find some cloud backup software they like?

     

    Thanks!

    Hi All,

    I have an artist who is going to Lisbon, Portugal to work on set for an upcoming job.

    My original thought was to rent a machine, image it and give it back to the rental house to handle the internationally shipping portion. My backup plan is to have the artist check-in the pelican case on his flight.

    Does anyone have any experience having to ship internationally or recommend a company in Los Angeles that could help expedite it. My concern is the machine getting stuck in customs.

    I reached out to the few rental houses we use and none of them do the shipping portion.

    Thoughts? Opinions?

    Thanks!

    Hey Chaps,

    First challenge:

    As anyone been able to come out of HDS maintenance and get back onto it without being back dated and without paying some stupid service acceptance fee (!!!)

    Second challenge:

    As anyone been able to cherry pick: only keep all hard drives under maintenance but not the heads (HW and SW)?

    Beer reward to the winner,

    Christophe

    Sonnet MacPro PCI Speed Issues
    posted by Zorion Terrell on March 14, 2017, 8:25 p.m. (2 days ago)

    Hey All,

     

    We have a MacPro in one of these fancy Sonnet Chassis http://www.sonnettech.com/product/xmacproserver/index.html with the PCIe Expander.

    We’re using an 8gb FC card and getting poor speeds. We tested with an HP Z440 with the same FC card and get the performance we expect, but the Mac is hitting a wall (250MB/s Write, 300MB/s Read).

     

    We’ve tried everything we can think of… changing thunderbolt ports, trying different slots in the pci expander… different cables…

     

    Anyone have any experience with these suckers?

     

    Thanks,
