  • 04/27/17--19:35: Selling old gear/accesories?
  • Selling old gear/accesories?
    posted by Viet Nguyen on April 27, 2017, 10:35 p.m. (1 day ago)
    I've got perhaps literally a ton of old stuff.

    A whole lot of cables.

    My first priority is getting rid of all of the NEMA 5-15 to C13 cables (my data center uses all C14 to C13), of which I may have thousands of which came standard with various equipment.

    After that, I have things like old DDR/QDR infiniband switches, raid controllers, sata cables and lots of other random equipment that probably work just fine for someone and would be heart breaking to e-waste.

    Anyone have any experience with companies that can come in and, evaluate that stuff and sell it for you?

    Thanks,
    V

    is your MTU preventing you from joining a domain?
    posted by Greg Whynott on April 28, 2017, 1:35 p.m.


    We use a vendors software for one of our storage systems. We recently dismantled it and built it all back up from zero.

    While attempting to join it to the domain, it would refuse to join but not much info in the error logs about why.

    While talking to support I told them I had the MTU set to 12000 on all interfaces in the network.

    He asked me to turn it down to 1500 on the storage appliance and attempt to rejoin the domain. It worked.


    Why? I'm beside myself trying to figure that out..

    recover deleted text files from linux xfs
    posted by Greg Whynott on May 3, 2017, 12:30 p.m. (2 days ago)

    I wrote a script some time back on a machine which was rsync'n to a partner using a password. The machine developed problems and the help desk guys re-imaged it upon request.

    naturally the next day we got a ticket saying lastnights rsync didn't happen. Whoops... forgot to backup the script and the machine isn't in the backup loop.. Not wanting to admit anything or call the partner to ask them what the password is again, I decided to dd the file system and search for it.

    At about the same time I finished re-writing the script, my grepper script found the old one and the password file! Get to avoid asking for a password and being 'that guy'. :)


    The short here is if you delete something from XFS/EXT, or reformat the drive, there still is hope. I found the password file and the password days later on a live disk, using included GNU tools on the system (grep and dd).

    MacDevOps:YVR 2017 conference 

    If anyone is in Vancouver or Seattle or wants to join us from afar, it is June 5-6th (Monday-Tuesday), with a social at Steamworks on June 4th at 5pm.

    Heres a link to the MacDevOps:YVR speakers line up:


    We got some pretty awesome speakers from Google, Facebook, Airbnb, Dropbox, Square, Disney Animation and many others. 

    Talking about managing Macs in the Enterprise and doing it with Open Source projects like Facebooks osquery, Googles Santa, and Disneys Munki project, just to name a few. Theyll also be talks on GitLab, securing dev environments, and AWS tips and tricks.

    I think theres one early bird ticket on the evenbrite page. This was freed up when one of the attendees decided to be a speaker.

    OFF TOPIC - Delete me. IM gone bad story.
    posted by Greg Whynott on May 16, 2017, 6:25 p.m. (1 day ago)
    Quick little story, a look into my entropy depleted world.


    I have a neighbor named Jane (of course that isn't her real name...).

    Two years ago Jane asked me to ask my home cleaner to call her as she wanted to employ her services as well. She gave me her number for me to give to the cleaner. I put it in my phone address book.

    Some time ago I started seeing someone named, Jane. Most of you can stop reading here as you know the rest. lol...

    Jane sends me a text message while driving. I ask Seri to read it to me. "Finished laundry jumping in shower, see you soon".

    Me: "Seri send Jane a message " take your camera in the shower with you!! " ".. being a typical guy and messing around...

    Seri does that, but instead of telling me I have two Janes in my address book, she sends it to the wrong one, my neighbor!!


    Neighbor writes back " I am not sending you any pictures and don't send me any!! "


    sigh... ;)


    side note for apple, would of it been that hard to make a better guess at which Jane I wanted to send a message to? The first Jane I have _never_ called or texted, the other one I have called and texted about 300 times in the last few months and as recently as SECONDS ago.. "seconds ago vrs never, wonder which he wants to call?"... a few lines of code apple, just a few....

    or how about have seri ask me which Jane? if I ask Seri to call someone she'll ask me which number... that would work..

    be well!

    Best out of the box Analytics stack for Deadline?
    posted by Michael Stein on May 18, 2017, 7:55 p.m. (1 day ago)
    I feel like I've asked similar before, but if you had to do a quick POC on analytics with Deadline, what would you use? Of course this hopefully won't just be a POC, so it would be great if it's something that scales.

    I'm a fan of Grafana, but don't have strong thoughts about backend, but really want to know what everyone is using.

    Thanks!

    Best practices for deploying maya
    posted by Greg Dickie on May 24, 2017, 9:20 a.m.
    Hopefully there are still some people left on email ;-)

    I'm having to deal with maya on linux these days and struggling a little bit with the best way to deploy it and all the plugins, modules, shelves, etc it requires. A bunch of the plugin installation instructions talk about copying files into the maya directory tree. That seems like a bad idea to me. The various MAYA_*_PATH variables also seem pretty limited.

    My question is has anyone mastered this and/or is there a best practices guide that already exists for this? Are there downsides to deploying on a network share versus locally? Is thee a way to centrally manage all the various plugins,modules,shelves?

    Thanks,
    Greg

    Isilon "sponteneous restart bugfix warning has bug!"
    posted by Julian Firminger on May 31, 2017, 4 a.m.
    Fellow Isilon admins, a community announcement.

    As many (all) of you would know, certain versions of OneFS running on certain hardware can be effected by a bug that will make your cluster restart spontaneously with no warning after 248.5 days, or 297 days. There are two varieties of this bug. One linked to Mellanox NICs, one to do with FS journal sizes. (ETA491747 and209918 respectivly)

    EMC of course gave us a script to run that will tell you how may days you have left before you have a problem.


    But, this script output is NOT DEFINITIVE and NOT LINEAR.

    If, like us, you ran this script on one of your clusters and it spat out say 240days and you thought "right, I'll raise this with that business unit, advise them we need a service window in the next 4 months, book a date for say, June this year, everyone is happy, we will have about 110 days left on the clock" - YOU MIGHT BE WRONG.

    Apparently, the output from that script is only valid at the time of running and may change by next week, tomorrow, next hour, no one knows. So in our case, somewhere between days 240 and 110, the timer changed resulting in an unscheduled cluster wide restart, mid production, while I was on vacation. *mega-sigh*

    Advice from EMC is now to setup anisi_ropc cronjob to push out a daily report from the script. I've been looking at this output for the last two weeks and I can confirm that the "Worst case days until restart" output is not linear. I have some nodes that continue to report 240 days, some that fluctuate by ~30 days, day to day, and some that return the 2min timeout tick (meaning not effected) one day, and then a day count the next.

    Happy uptime to you all.
