    3 IBM Bladecenter HS20 for sale Toronto Area
    posted by Andrew Painter on Dec. 28, 2013, 4:50 p.m. (6 days ago)
    Weve got 3 IBM Bladecenter HS20 systems for sale. System includes chassis and 12 blades each. The one chassis has blades which have 4GB of ram and 2HDDs in each blade. The other Chassis weve kept as spares and most blades in them have both RAM and HDDs but some are lacking in drives or RAM due to being used as replacements in the other systems. Systems are working well but have been replaced with other hardware. Looking to sell them as a group. If interested please make an offer. -- Andrew Painter systems administrator relish + 567vfx + tendril 119 spadina avenue #800 toronto, on, m5v 2l1 To unsubscribe from the list send a blank e-mail to mailto:studiosysadmins-discuss-request@studiosysadmins.com?subject=unsubscribe

    PipelineFX Qube installation issue on Windows
    posted by Jean-Francois Panisset on Dec. 30, 2013, 5:25 p.m. (4 days ago)
    In case this saves someone some head scratching...

    I was struggling with why installing the Qube Worker MSI wasn't showing up in Add/Remove program, and even worse, made it impossible to do a clean upgrade, since when trying to remove the "Qube Core" package, it would fail claiming that "Qube Worker" was installed, yet even from the command line trying to remove "Qube Worker" claimed it wasn't there to be removed.

    Turns out the Qube Worker MSIs (both 6.4.4 and 6.5.1) were built without the "ALLUSERS" property set, so by default they get installed for the Current User rather than All Users. So unless you are logged in as the same user who did the original install, you will be in dependency hell.

    I tried to play around with "re-advertising" in msiexec (the /JM switch) but that didn't seem to work reliably. Reinstalling the Qube-Worker with "ALLUSERS=1" on the msiexec.exe command line seems to clean things up, and then allow removal and upgrade.

    A bug has been filed with PipelineFX, and they are saying that this should be fixed in the next build.

    Thunderbolt hater (was MacPro comparative)
    posted by Marc Brewster on Dec. 31, 2013, 11:35 a.m. (3 days ago)
    Given more options I would not care about PCIe ports at >all. >>- Jimmy Hi Jimmy, Can I ask why you dislike PCIe cards? Is it the cards themselves or the technology? Personally I hate Thunderbolt with a passion which is, I assume, your preferred method of connectivity? The idea of having racks of systems all with crappy 'push fit' connectors going to some shonky external box to give me FC/10Gig/etc connectivity fills me with dread. That leads to super messy racking and tons of cables that might unseat themselves given enough heat cycles. Is there a 'pro' version of the ThunderBolt connector that I haven't seen that has positive connectors? If your business model is one or two systems on a desk then fair play and if you have no use for external connectivity then you'll have a lovely clutter free desk with a system that already resembles an NYC MTA dustbin.. ;-) Marc To unsubscribe from the list send a blank e-mail to mailto:studiosysadmins-discuss-request@studiosysadmins.com?subject=unsubscribe

    Recommendations for services/companies/individuals who I should talk to?

  • Alerts from DDN storage?
    posted by Ken Spickler on Jan. 3, 2014, 2:05 p.m.
    What is everyone doing to get alerts from their DDN storage devices? We've got a S2A9900 system and want to be able to get alerted to faults in the system (i.e. failed drives). So far it seems we have to rely on actively checking the front panel LED's of the storage shelves to make sure everything is copacetic.

    It sure would be nice if DDN had SNMP or email alerts, but alas, they don't.

    if you have an isilon system with windows shares could you do me a favor?
    posted by Greg Whynott on Jan. 3, 2014, 3:25 p.m.


    if you have an isilon system which has shares view-able from windows 7 clients could you please do me a favor and let me the results of this:

    from UNIX (not the windows 7 test host) create a directory (not file, or both but i am mostly interested in directory) with any name, all in lower case. now at that same level make another directory with the exact same name but in all upper case.

    what does it look like when you view this area from windows? does it show both versions correctly, or rename them, or only show one?

    from unix:

    cd /volumes/vol3/share/
    mkdir foo
    mkdir FOO

    view from windows now.

    thanks much, I'm discovering different NASs handle this differently...

    I see both, when I rename the lower case to foo1 it renamed them both to foo1 from the windows view, but on Linux I see foo1 and FOO. If i leave the directory on Windows and come back, I see them both named as I did in Linux
