    Hitachi Bluarc snmp monitoring
    posted by Kevin McCartney on Feb. 24, 2014, 9:06 p.m. (1 day ago)

    anyone have any expreince with this? I try the basic snmpwalk command while using "public" as the password. It says the host is not reachable even though I can ping it fine. I am trying to figure out how to pull some snmp info such as free disk space from the cluster to use for a custom monitring solution. Any info on how you got this done would be greatly apprciated.

    VLAN for secure Projects - How do you do it?
    posted by Kevin McCartney on Feb. 25, 2014, 1:12 p.m.

    I am looking to create a secure room for projects that ask for the highest level of security. The physical stuff is all in place like card access to doors and blinds over the windows etc. From an infrastrcuture standpoint what is the easiest way to set this up? So far i am thinking just creating a VLAN that does not allow for access to the internet but does allow access to the internal subnets that host the file server etc and just block out bound traffic. Is there a way to do this that is more secure? I cant sandbox their vlan because all the storage and render power will of course be on a seperate LAN. Looking forward to hearing what you guys are doing. Thanks!

     

    P.S. I have a core switch from extreme networks.

    posted by Jean-Francois Panisset on Feb. 25, 2014, 2:50 p.m.
    From the list of security fixes in 10.9.2:

    Finder
    Available for: OS X Mavericks 10.9 and 10.9.1
    Impact: Accessing a file's ACL via Finder may lead to other users
    gaining unauthorized access to files
    Description: Accessing a file's ACL via Finder may corrupt the ACLs
    on the file. This issue was addressed through improved handling of
    ACLs.
    CVE-ID
    CVE-2014-1264

    So that's a good thing if it is indeed fixed. Unfortunately, another claimed fix:

    "Improved reliability when connecting to a file server using SMB2"

    isn't working for me, but that may be because we're running pretty old code (8.x) on our BlueArc.

    Finisar SFPs in Arista switch
    posted by Ken Spickler on Feb. 25, 2014, 5:45 p.m.
    We recently purchased an Arista switch, and I recall they weren't locked into using specific SFP modules. The few Arista-branded SFPs we have are working fine, but I'm not getting any love from plain 'ol Finisar SFPs. Does anyone know if there's a command that needs to be executed to enable non-Arista SFP modules in these units? Ken Spickler Sent from iPhone. Srry for tpos.

    On the off chance... Wacom pressure sensitivity and rdesktop
    posted by Brian Krusic on Feb. 26, 2014, 8:50 p.m. (1 day ago)
    Hi,

    Is there any way to translate pen pressure etc through rdesktop?

    Or, same device but through another remote app/device?

    Im open to any ideas.  Trying to get away from or minimize VMs as the lack of GL and any real graphic performance is too much.

    Maya Deadline submitter pipelining.
    posted by Christopher Stewart on Feb. 27, 2014, 12:55 p.m.
    I'm looking for a bit of reference on scripting Deadline's submitter. I just want to preset a couple of the Maya submitter's fields based on the loaded scene file and output from some sanity functions (the submitter launches only after they have succeeded). While I've figured out how to set the job name with something like: setAttr defaultRenderGlobals.deadlineJobName -type "string" "xyzzy"; I'm failing to guess the variable names for "Pool" or "Output Path". No output in the script editor occurs and searching the scripting ref has done me no good so far. Google has the fail too. I know some Deadline savvy folks hang out here somewhere. Any help appreciated!

    Are there special USB3 extension cables for powered devices, or do I just have crappy cables?

    StudioSysAdmins-Discuss Digest, Vol 53, Issue 28
    posted by Jeff Yana on Feb. 28, 2014, 12:35 a.m.
    I suppose you could think of it as cache, but since it is the primary and only location of filesystem metadata (once defined), its more accurate to refer to it as a data tier.

    I Googled Max Boost in conjunction HDS and came up with nothing. Maybe its Canadian marketing-speak but I am pretty sure North America is treated as a single contiguous marketing block and marketing names are consistent. 

    It remains to be seen what will happen to SSDs with the recent announcement of their all-flash array for their HUS 150 and VM products (see below).

    thanks for the clarification Jeff.    I suspect the sales guy was trying to sell us the SSD drives and was considering it cache,  or BA's answer to other vendors caching solutions..    In any event that conversation happened a few years ago and I have a hard enough time remembering what I had for lunch these days.

    With that said,  adding a tiering layer of SSD conceptually isn't that far off of what dedicated caching solutions attempt to achieve I'd think..  maybe not as aggressively.

    The software upgrade BA introduced was/is known as Max Boost in NA,    Maybe it has been recently renamed by HDS or perhaps you are in some other region?

    Our power just went down on our floor and our Blue Arc did not go down gracefully. We are still awaiting an ETA for the power to be restored but we're concerned about the Blue Arc and especially the index. We've already opened a case with Hitachi and have esscalated it but while we're waiting, is there someone with experience in this that would care to share some advice on the matter?

    Thanks,

    Plenty experience with power-outages here in Culver City unfortunately/fortunately not with blue-arc.

    I strongly would advise going forward to get battery backup for the next time the power goes out to give you at least 15-20 min to shutdown properly.
    Depending upon your setup requirements, its not the much of an investment for the head-ache which is about to ensue.

    If you do have one and it failed or its undersized, check out http://www.refurbups.com/ we used them to replace a # of old batteries.
    Also Ebay has a slew of APC Gear for cheap which you can then replace the batteries if they are not up to par...

    SSA NYC - RESCHEDULED - Please read!
    posted by Dan Young on March 1, 2014, 4 p.m.
    Hello everyone,

    So, construction timelines at our new space have pushed us back - and trying to work around NAB, the event that was scheduled for 3/1/2014 will now be taking place 4/24/2014 - really sorry about this, but honestly there wasn't anything we could do to prevent it, and it's pretty hard finding a free venue in NYC.

    Attached is the NEW flyer. I hope you will still be able to attend!

    Everything about the event will be the exact same, as planned, but simply on a later date.

    Mac OS X 10.8.5, 10.9.x.

    I'm running into an issue where files downloaded using a browser to a user's desktop have the mode bits set at 600.

    I need them to be set to at least 660.

    I have tried putting "umask 007" in either the "/etc/launchd-user.conf" or the "/etc/profile" (and rebooting). When I run "umask" in a shell window, it returns "007" for both config's.

    If I touch a new file, the permissions come out as 660.

    It's just files download via browser that seem to have this problem.

    Has anyone been able to get 660's on browser downloaded files?
