  • iSCSI initiators for OS X?
    posted by Klaus Steden on Jan. 6, 2014, 5:35 p.m.
    Hi there, Has anyone out there in TV-land worked with any iSCSI initiators for OS X? I found one from Studio Network Solutions that has a reasonable-looking price, but does anyone have any horror stories, or stories of great success using iSCSI on Macs? thanks, Klaus To unsubscribe from the list send a blank e-mail to mailto:studiosysadmins-discuss-request@studiosysadmins.com?subject=unsubscribe

    Autodesk Windows sysadmin fail
    posted by Jean-Francois Panisset on Jan. 6, 2014, 7 p.m. (1 day ago)
    You would think that Autodesk would have something useful to say about remote installation of their products on Windows, right? From:


    here's how they suggest you run a batch file to install a "deployment" on all your systems:

    Use one of the following methods to run an installation batch file:
    Run the batch file manually at each individual computer. To run the
    installation, paste the batch file into the Run dialog box or run it from the
    Windows command prompt.
    Send an email to each user who should run the batch file, with the UNC
    path and any required instructions.
    Email the batch file to each user with instructions for use.
    Set up the batch file so that it runs on login.

    I think I like the "email the batch file" one best.

    I am trying to get in touch with quantum, it is out of warranty. My question is - has anyone worked with quantum before, can this be fixed, will they want to replace the mechanism? Any idea on a cost - is it worth it? I see that I can pick up the same system with a LTO6 drive for around $3300, so I may want to do that. It seems like 714 hours is pretty low. Has anybody tried to replace the mechanism themselves? I used to do that on an old SDLT loaded without any issues, but this one seems to be a little tighter.
    Oh, I have cleaned the drive when it requests it, and I use quantum brand media. I am getting this error on all of the brand new tapes that I have tried, so I doubt it is the media.

  • 01/08/14--09:37: Volunteers for SSA Meetings
  • Volunteers for SSA Meetings
    posted by John Hickson on Jan. 8, 2014, 12:37 p.m.

    All,

    We are looking for more people to volunteer and help get more StudioSysAdmins meetings for 2014!  This year we plan on having events at both NAB and SIGGRAPH as well.

    We currently do not have anyone in the San Francisco/Bay area. Jaime Gago can no longer do it - We thank Jaimie for his help in the past and wish him the best of luck.

    If you are interested in helping out in your city, or if we can use your space to hold meetings, please contact me and let me know.

    john.hickson@studiosysadmins.com

     

    In February will be holding meetings in Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal, New York, and Sydney - confirmation and details are being worked on now.

     

    We are also open to any ideas on how to get more people out to meetings so your feedback is always welcome...

     

    Thank you;
    John Hickson

    I'm thinking of migrating some services off our vm cluster onto a solaris box and using zones. Linux has something similar (containers) but linux is late coming to the game, so it'll need some time probably, just like ZFS on linux. (poke)

    if so what has your experience been thus far?

    posted by Eppie Tong on Jan. 9, 2014, 3:15 p.m.
    I am wondering if anyone else have this problem and love to hear input on this.

    We installed Argyll version 1.6.1 and dispcalgui 1.5.3.1 on our Fedora 14 and using a i1 Mcbeath probe to calibrate our DreamColours. What I was told was that all DreamColours have poor purity performance. Without exception the displays exhibit various hues over the viewing surface. This isnt rare but to have this purity issue spread right across the center viewing area is a problem for our application.

    Our 24" Dell monitors, which is way cheaper than the DreamColours had better performance on this category.

    Heads up to those thinking about moving to Maya 2014 on Linux using MRFM. After a good deal of head thrashing yesterday, wasting n+ number of hours troubleshooting and parsing through cryptic render output, it was brought to my attention by Autodesk TAC that MRFM is no longer a default install when installing the Maya 2014 binary (rpm). The official explanation for its removal is easier, faster development times for Maya. The real reason of course is because Mental Ray is headed for extinction as the 3d hordes migrate away from MR over to Vray. jy To unsubscribe from the list send a blank e-mail to mailto:studiosysadmins-discuss-request@studiosysadmins.com?subject=unsubscribe

    Comparing Filesystem Performance in Virtual Machines
    posted by Steve Ovens on Jan. 11, 2014, 10:50 a.m. (1 day ago)
    Interesting that VirtualBox Native performance was so different from VMWare native performance

    PfSense - Changing LAN IP and Subnet Range
    posted by Bobby Jain on Jan. 12, 2014, 3:05 p.m.
    Hello!

    I am trying to switch over our internet network from 192.168.1.0/24 to 192.168.20.0/24. This is in the hopes of having better network compatibility for VPN road warriors.

    PfSense version: 2.0.1
    Old LAN interface: 192.168.1.1
    New LAN interface: 192.168.20.1

    I can successfully change the IP address of the LAN interface, but when I do, none of my internal traffic is routed to the outside world anymore. The PfSense router can ping our ISP's default gateway, as well as google and any other servers on the internet. But using a computer from the inside, I cannot ping anything by IP or hostname outside of our network. I can ping the new LAN IP internally without issue, and even load the web interface.

    When I change the IP of the LAN interface back, everything works as it should.

    I have tried:
    - rebooting the box
    - installing a new interface and assigning the new IP
    - different subnet range

    Has anybody else tried this with pfsense?

    Understanding the Robustness of SSDs under Power Fault
    posted by Jathavan Sriram on Jan. 12, 2014, 5:10 p.m.
    This paper (2013) is a good read for everyone using (Enterprise) SSDs in their facilities.
    https://www.usenix.org/system/files/conference/fast13/fast13-final80.pdf

    Summary of the findings:
    http://www.zdnet.com/how-ssd-power-faults-scramble-your-data-7000011979/

    We use Intel SSDs in different Raid configurations for our StorNext Metadata - haven't
    experienced these problems so far - even with 2 major power outages last year (graceful shutdown was possible while UPS kicked in)

    Anyone having weird SSDs issues, maybe data loss after power faults?

    Cheers
    Jatha

    Migrate, but use of the FiberChannel Network.
    posted by Andreas Martin Aanerud on Jan. 13, 2014, 6:30 a.m.
    Good day, happy new year to all,
    for me it where a start on a new chapter, and a new exiting job =)

    The new job, got me some new challenges, and I love it, but a small question where raised.

    They are today using a FC Apple Xsan, with a Active Storage shelf, and a Qlogic FC switch.
    its Atto 4gbit FC cards on the clients, so not quite fast, but good enough for our use. (AE Projects)

    So for an upgrade of Storage, I did contact Active Storage, and they offered a SAS expander, but they also said that we only could expand with one SAS shelf. so thats a bit short, for our expansion ideas.

    Then a solution I though of where FreeNAS / Nexentra setup with an ISCSI Share to the AppleXsan, and then do the Xsan sharing.

    Its sounds so sketchy that I shivered by thinking of it, but it might do the trick.

    Does anyone have a similar solution, or hopefully a better ?

    Best
    Andreas
