I'm an IT jack of all trades...
I have a bit of experience in Software Development (PHP / HTML / CSS / jQuery / mySQL), Windows Server 2003+, Various Linux and Virtualization Flavors, and non-IPOD SAN setups.
@scottalanmiller SOP for Spectrum, don't ask how I know
I had a doozy last week. Spectrum replaced a modem, said the internet is working and left without the client having time to test anything. Here they didn't add their static IP address, and I spent an hour on the phone with a tier-1 person who insisted they couldn't have a static IP because they're not being billed for it. That place was on a different ISP that was purchased by Specturm and now Spectrum has to honor the original plans, but try to convince a tier-1 tech of this, forgetaboutit.
And that will only last until the contract is up. Then, the gouging can begin!
Looking up about ZeroTier, but confused how you would implement it in a 600+ Device / 30+ server over 60 location environment. Would you need to install the client on ALL the servers and devices?
It might be easier to set it up as a site-to-site VPN. The ethernet bridging can work, but hat can also make for some interesting issues.
The way ZT is designed, yes, you'd install the client on all the things. If you manage the network soup to nuts, then setting it up as a site to site VPN isn't terribly difficult at small scale.
Moving some VM's from one host to a "new" one for a stop-gap operation to resolve some performance issues.
That's always fun. I'm trying to track down why a long and complicated SQL script I work with is killing performance in one database now. (I got two of the other ones fixed).
I just came up with a handy dandy little tool (oh, God, shoot me now) for Collecting host information from your Vmware Hosts. It's been tested against both vSphere 6.7.0u3 and 7.0.1
Make sure you are connected to one of your vSphere hosts or a vCenter server (with connect-viserver). Then, run the script with no parameters to have it spit out some of the server details to the screen.
./get-hostdetail.ps1 -vmhost esx01.mydomain.com
Run the script with the -vmhost parameter to only check one host.
WIll generate a text file named after all servers (or you can specify a single server with the -vmhost parameter.
Thoughts / Ideas for Improvements are welcome.
that's it, this client has suffered enough. off to client 2!
I kinda feel the same way about my Monday, but both clients and me.
It's Tuesday now... is it too late to cancel this week and go to bed?
