Unixplaza Blog Site

My friend and former collegue Mohamed recently launched a Unix blog: "Unixplaza". Looks like he is writing about his own Unix sysadmin adventures. He really knows his stuff, so that should be cool to watch.

They turned off the HPSIM and general management and alerting server this morning, or at least, unplugged it, cause it was causing this huge network spike at a remote site I know for a fact that no one besides myself knows what it is exactly that machine does, as its only usefull to me and what I do. That doesnt mean it isnt explained in the server ......

This Saterday, we switched the subnet over, and moved all the remain criticle systems over to a new serverroom across the country.

This is more or less how its gonna be. All the bits are now in place, half the rack stuff has been put in place already, the last stuff goes in coming Vriday. One of the biggest oversights we made was with power requirements. If you want redundant power for a lot of servers, you need to make sure you have a LOT of plugs, enough PDU’s, and plenty of ......

So a few weeks ago, we spent our Saterday doing major recable work on the new Technical Computer room (TCR) in the new location, in preperation for our Big Bang services move coming up on the 5th of July (it was delayed from the 22nd)) So thise pics and videos are a few weeks old now, but who cares.
