It's a surprisingly cheap and easy bus to take. it's like $1.20 per person and maybe 45 minutes. Very easy. And they sell you snacks and drinks as you get onto the bus and it drops you off in a market with lots of taxis and food stalls.
I assumed, but thought I'd ask - you don't have a car there, right?
No, but we are casually shopping for one. It would be handy with all of the stuff that we do now in other cities. And our places aren't on the bus routes, so you have to go to the city then get a taxi. Makes it a pain as we expand. We have three businesses up north in Departmento Chinandega which isn't far, but it makes it hard to deal with especially as the buses aren't going to run at 1am when we'd often want to take them.
I have two roadblocks with a .net core console app I need to get resolved. I am looking for someone with the expertise to solve these issues for me.
I can discuss the app here, but if you are interested, let's negotiate the terms privately.
Is it a Linux issue, .NET on Linux issue, or an issue with the software? Running .NET on Linux is very straightforward and is an IT issue. The software is a programming issue. So important as it affects what type of firm you'd engage.
@scottalanmiller Let me clarify. I want to make sure the "good" backups are copied to the offsite storage. So if the building were to catch on fire or something, and the good copies are destroyed. I would want to be able to restore from the offsite storage. In my case, some of the data was missing from the offsite storage that should have been replicated from the local "good" backup. Not sure what happened, and why it was not copied over, but it did not. I figured there would be some kind of sync mechanism that would have caught that ahead of time, which Barracuda said there is no such sync. That is why I reached out to the community.
We understand. And that's important because clearly your sync failed. It's just that it also exposed the fact that the original backups are not application aware (unless there is no application) so something that you should see as a very, very large issue. If you are responsible for the backups, that is. Otherwise, not your monkeys, not your circus.
You're making an assumption that there's an app to backup - which wasn't 100% clear until this post. As you mention - he might just be backing up file servers - so no app involved - just files to backup.
Even a pure file server is normally accessed. "File server" is a form of "database". A very specific form, but surprisingly similar to a document database. It would be super weird, but not actually impossible, to have a file server that holds files but is never accessed. but once you start accessing files, it's an application doing the accessing and we are right back to where we started. File servers tend to have known usage patterns and accepted backup failure modes, but the issue hasn't changed. It just feels that way. No file exists without an application.
I'm thinking about running pure KVM on debian for virtualization hosts. Not Proxmox. There will be no GUI on the servers, no web interface, only ssh for management.
Do I need to do anything special to lock down the security?
I've never used KVM in production, only on my desktop and then I've had virt-manager as well as tools like virtsh. So I don't really know what is required for a pure KVM server to be as "secure" as proxmox, xcp-ng or whatever.
Keep the OS and everything updated. Keep drivers updated. Keep firmware updated. Use only key-based auth for SSH, add only specific devices to authorized_keys file. Ensure firewall configured well. Set up log alerts for access.
Actually the white wall that is just behind the laptop is much better than a ring light. Just bounce a light source of it and you'll get a very nice light. Search for "bounce lighting" if you want examples.
I have this setup - I have a LED lap that I pointed a the wall and turned the camera on - much better lighting for video calls and wat not.
I want to install a piece of software on the license server this afternoon to finish off a project and it will require a reboot.
I wanted to reboot it in the middle of the day but don't want to cause an issue and get "The remote session was disconnected because there are no Remote Desktop License Servers available ...."
Don't need 30-40 calling with an issue.
wow - OK... While my gut tells me you'd be fine - the issue I would expect you to POSSIBLY get is someone trying to sign in right while the reboot is happening - but otherwise I would expect everything else to just stay running. But don't really know.
I was thinking the same thing. As they say, timing is everything.
Hell hath no fury, like a medical receptionist scorned. 🙂
Well, on a whim, I went out to this location, plugged in a wireless adapter with the existing IP Info and bam, the camera server could see the TREE, GATE SWITCH and ultimately, the camera. So I guess next is to find out why this was the fix and narrow down on the permanent solution.
