    By Donn Gurule - Dear SSAs,


    I would really appreciate if anybody can recommend a good part-time studio system administrator for one of my customers in the Seattle area. ?They must be proficient with Microsoft Windows servers,?Linux?would be a huge plus, and know how to set up and administer a domain?controller?as well as secondary controllers. ?Also, they must have extensive experience with networking Apple/Windows/Linux to a Windows and Linux server. ?They must know how to set up a new server, administer and maintain the server and network in both Linux and Windows.

    This will be an ongoing contract/part-time position to a qualified candidate. ?References?are a must.

    Thank you very much, you can reach me at donn@lightbeamsystems.com

    Donn.

    By Nick Allevato - Hey Donn,


    I have a few associates in the LA area that would fit the bill very well. Worked with them throughout the years moving from systems to consulting to build-outs. 

    Too far? Relocation something you would consider? Let me know offline.

    Also, we are still running some nodes from you here...they are working great!

  • 02/23/13--11:50: Linux Kernel Needed
  • By Jonathan Solomon - Hi Gang- I finally had an opportunity to upgrade to CentOS 5.8, only to find out that as of 2/12, the distro rpm I need has been pulled from the repos. Specifically, I am looking for *kernel-2.6.18-308.1.1.el5.x86_64.rpm*. If anyone can point me to a repository it would be appreciated!

    By Donn Gurule - Dear SSAs,


    I want to network with Apple/Macintosh workstations from a Windows server. ?I'm concerned that SMB might be too slow (you can give me your opinions on this), but I am leaning towards setting up a virtual machine on the Windows server, installing Linux (example Linux Mint), sharing a Windows volume on the VM and run netatalk as an alternative to connect to Apple machines instead of SMB. ?Are there better options out there to do a Mac share? Is SMB unreasonably slow? ?Am I overcomplicating things? :)

    Thanks,
    Donn.

  • 02/24/13--10:25: OT - The Hobbit
  • By Brian Krusic - Hi,


    Just saw The Hobbit.

    Two things to ask you;

    1) Do you think it could've been condensed to 1 film?
    me: I think so.  The LOTR books were each as rich and were 1 film each.

    2) Did you like the 48fps?
    me: Well, kinda.  At times I felt hard edges and a bit too much contrast.


    - Brian

    By Jonathan Solomon - What about SSDs as the "system" or cache and/or metadata drives? We've seen that on some of our storage systems where swapping out to SSD for the metadata drives has resolved slow access times, which occasionally would causes a client system crash.

  • 02/26/13--10:55: IP Phone Systems?
  • By Rob LaRose -


    We're looking at options for a new VOIP phone system -- have seen proposals for the Cisco, Avaya, and Allworx systems.

    Anyone want to weigh in on positive/negative experiences with any or all of these systems?  They *seem* to be on a par in terms of administration/management and feature set, so actual telephone quality, service/support quality, etc. are areas I'd love to hear about from those of you with experience.

  • 02/26/13--15:25: SSD for VM swap
  • By Greg Whynott -

    Holly snap adding SSDs to your ESX db/exchange VMs ever make them happy.

    if your VMs are getting slow,  move them to an SSD and add another for swap files. 

    make sure your backups are working too.  8)

    By Jean-Francois Panisset - Has anyone had any luck running ZBrush (the floating license version) off a network share, preferably accessed via a UNC path? My initial attempt at just copying over the install results has the Zbrush executable never actually putting up a UI window. Pixologic tech support basically told me that this is not supported, but I wondered if anyone had done the required sleuthing to make this work. BTW, looks like the floating license version of 4R5 just got released, unfortunately the update RLM support files apparently don't support earlier versions, which will make transitioning from 4R4 to 4R5 a bit trickier.

  • 02/27/13--17:45: A, MX and CNAMEs
  • By Brian Krusic - Allo,


    So I have a situation were doamin.com needs to resolve.

    However I have MX records being;


    Can I also have an A record for domain.com that is a different server entirely?

    And then;

    domain.comCNAMEwww.domain.com

    I'm fearing some mail clients will use an A record rather then an MX.

    Am I off?

    Here are my symptoms when domain.com has an A record;

    Mail clients using SSL will fail and list the IP addy of the domain.com rather then the MX record as the reason for failure.

    Or, could this be my wild card SSL cert have a subject alternative name of;

    *.domain.com, domain.com

    Just wondering how many blades people are hooking up per circuit.  We are planning to start putting our blades on 30 amp/220 watt circuits.   Each blade contains two Super-Micro X8DTT-F boards and a 1200 watt power supply. Is any one doing something similar?   My electrician suggested that I reach out to the community to see what everyone else is doing, he's curious to see if the 1200 watt supply is overkill on the manufacturer's part.   Also plan on getting a metered 220 power strip to see the actual draw.
