Trying to remember (or find) the PSK for my L2TP tunnel so I don't have to reset it a dozen devices... because 1 a-hole decided to factory reset his phone and then whine about "I haven't gotten my work email in over a week, wtf?" Well, you erased the [email protected] connection, so of course you can't get work email....
That's pretty extreme security for email... TLS not good enough?
Our email server is not exposed to the outside, and now Crapple doesn't like the PPTP tunnel we already had, so I had to make an L2TP tunnel. It's for all purpose remote access, email RDP, everything. And now 1 guy ruins it for everyone (mostly me) by forcing the whole thing to get reset, and he can't understand why it isn't "pa55word". Yay, I love being forced to manually reconfigure every ipad and iphone here... again.
I take it you didn't record the PSK somewhere you can find? Sadly I've done that before too. it sucks
I've looked everywhere I might have written it down, but I was "smart" and didn't write it down...
I just remembered this thing the boss came up with, gonna try that (typing exercise as a password)
Burned by not keeping clean and concise records, in a known location. Also for being "smart". . .
Very interesting conversation! I never really thought about the various ways the term could be used.
I have always used JBOD to describe a bunch of disks in an expansion storage cabinet that did not have a hardware based RAID controller built-in.
You could access the drives independently or use software RAID for some, if not all, of them. The logic of controlling them would be external to the cabinet itself, therefore it's a collection of "just a bunch of disks."
Do not use the ERX, without a console port, you lose troubleshooting.
While this is true, I don't think it's a real problem. If you have to go for console access, you have to go onsite anyway - then just reset it and restore the settings from your backup. I wouldn't worry about trouble shooting in this cost range.
The ERX is not something I would use in a business. It works great for a home office but not for a business.
XOSAN beta is meant to be done on XOA only because it uses mechanism related to xen-orchestra.com (you need a valid account there, with a valid token). So it's not possible to try XOSAN via XO on the sources.
It's still in a really early phase right now, so before going further we'll validate all the Phases explained in the blog post.
About the StarWind thing, I don't know the product at all, but on our side it's:
Pool wide, ie working from 2 nodes up to 16 (well in theory more, but it's pool-wide not across pools)
Uses Duplication/Triplication but also Disperse mode, depending of your need
Auto heal (when a host/node is coming back online, it fetches all the missing data)
Easy install/deploy (thanks to XOA)
And more (basically, everything you can do with GlusterFS but "in a box", so think about HDD+SSD caching, complex disks usage to avoid any hardware RAID etc.)
Given that it is just an all in one printer, does the quality or reliability really play into it that much?
It does to your sanity.
When you have users screaming at you all the time that their printer doesn't work, it drives you mad.
While a much larger desktop machine I love our Laniers. They seem to require a minimal amount of maintenance and just do a good job.
We have a floor version of a Konica Minolta AIO - the one thing that drives me crazy about it is that you can't enter/edit the configuration while the machine is doing anything other than being idle. Due to our fax volume, this means that I must unplug the machine from the phone line and suspend the print queue to make changes to it.
The Laniers don't suffer this problem, nor has any other brand I've ever used.
I agree with Scott here - You shouldn't use your Windows server at all for the VPN solution.
What does your Windows server do for you? If you're not using it for Active Directory, and it sounds like you're not using it for file storage either (You have a NAS), then what? An application server? Are you hosting your websites from it? Seem expensive for no reason, unless an application you purchased required the use of IIS - then I'd ask, can you get rid of that and move to a solution that is uses a free OS.
As for VPN - If you really need traditional VPN, Find out if your current router/firewall can do it. If not, replace it with a EdgeRouter. They are very inexpensive and do this job great, and work with the native VPN client inside Windows PCs.
And yes I use Centos latest, I noticed they have switched to XFS even in the boot partition, does it support volume snapshots?
Yes, and no. Filesystems don't do snapshots, logical volume managers do. XFS used properly on LVM2 has always had snapshots. Just like EXT2, 3 & 4 have always supported. Or JFS. The filesystem can't block the snapping functionality, so no matter what you put on top of an LVM, even if it isn't a filesystem, can be snapped as the filesystem doesn't not need to grant permission for this operation.
This is where KVM and ESXi have a superior architecture. No need for a Dom0 VM.
uhhh.. ok - then can you do what JB suggested? Install KVM into your CentOS that's already on your laptop?
That's what Boxes is.
Ya don't use that crap though. I run VirtManager on my laptop. The console full screen through SPICE is awesome. Even over the network, on a LAN you could think you're using that machine instead of a VM.
I'll give a real world example for this. We have in house applications that are written in Fortran. We have a PGI and Intel compiler for these applications that compile the fortran code into executables. These aren't "installed" anywhere. They are automounted on all of our systems. The binaries are launched with a script by the user that checks some things on the local system like kernel version, OS, OS release, etc. If these check out the script launches the binary for the user.
So if 4th is strictly using RSAT... would 5th be full automation using SCCM, SCVMM, Orchestrator, and App Controller?
Yes, I believe so. Those would be tools in the Microsoft toolset for that. They tend to take a very different approach than many of their competitors and it's been a while since I've used it. Not sure if SCCM goes all of the way to defined state or just really heavily automated forth form. But I think you can get to that state.
I believe it is properly state defined (fifth form) but not code defined like most of the alternatives.
I think I got lost in all the clutter... but why do you separate Remote GUI from Remote CLI ?
Essentially "automatable interface" vs non-automatable interface. Not that GUIs cannot be automated, but effectively they cannot be.
Connect to the serial port and verify boot completed and all that. then start your pings.
It is entirely possible it was still booting.
Yes that might be true; the ping times incrementally get larger until they go back to 1, at least in the screenshot, but not the posted wall of text.
In the first wall of text ping times start high and go down slowly.
In the last screenshot they start low and get higher til they all go back to 1.
To me this is either something booting up, or a bottleneck somewhere.
I might check the wireless stuff as a starting point.
All pings/logs are from different switches. Please read the notes.
