UPS added to MPOE

UPS

 As the current stormy weather caused quite lots of power interruptions, I wondered if the lower internet connectivity quality in the last months was not due to the fact that the MPOE had no UPS backup.
Checking this on my logs, a correlation on poor internet connectivity and ADSL Modem moved to the MPOE, existed. Knowing this, I finally got a UPS and connected the MPOE's power supply to this UPS. The fact that many people in france actually use electric heating reduces the voltage of the cur...

NAS (OMV) Has been upgraded

Linux Hardware

 to Debian Jessie (8.x), and OMV to v3.x. The main issue was that in the move from Debian Wheezy to Jessie, the init-system was moved from SystemV Init to SystemD - with all the changes this implies. Also - quite some quircks needed to be fixed on the Docker-Containers (Before the upgrade, I made the mistake to Apply ACL's to all directories - including the docker-container directory). The Apple netatalk failed, as did the SMB configuration when upgrading OMV 2.x to 3.x. Also, some configuration ...

Servers and NAS moved to basement

FW Nas Small

 It was a long Weekend, but I finally managed to move the Servers out of the office into the Basement. That is, Web/Mail Server and UPS went into one 10" rack, while the NAS and a new firewall based on Shorewall went into a Smaller 10"rack.

As a new MPOE was also setup some weeks ago, 8x1Gbps Cat6a SFP cables were set over to the server racks. The NAS is now connected using 2x1Gbps bonding. The max-speed per channel may only be 1Gbps, however 2 systems can s...

New MPOE for home network

MPOE Small

 After some thinking, a new Main Point Of Entry MPOE setup has been installed in the basement. The idea is to put Cat6 cabling into the entire house (actually, using the old phone-line conduits havong unshielded cheap cables), and the central hub of all the conduits was the basement.

The MPOE was chosen to be large enough to also host the first point of contact with the local Telco. In the current case ADSL, while end of the year fiber is planned. Note that moving the ADSL Modem i...

ISP instability

Linux Hardware

 Seems that our ADSL 2+ line has become unstable - for whatever reason. After some investigation, I found out that all existing connections can still go through, however any new initiated connection fails. Also a ping.
I however also noticed that restarting the ADSL Modem forced the remote end to sync, and work again. So - wrote a little script that will monitor the connection to the ISP's gateway, and in case that one is not reachable, the ADSL Modem will be restarted.

New NAS installed

 As the CPU of the old NAS was really a limit to many things - a NAS found a new home - using a 2.2Ghz Xeon CPU, 16GB Ram, and the storage has been expanded to 8 usable TB (that can be expanded to 12. Currently Raid 5 + 1 with 4 disks).
Added a 120GB SSD drive for the OS, and a PCIe eSATA Card to attache the external monthly backup drive. This new NAS is based on a HP Microserver gen8.
The only bad thing about this is that they use ILO internally (As a kind of BIOS replacement), and it...

 Stargate has been cross-migrated to a new and faster hardware. In the same process, the OS has been updated and the software used to deliver mail changed from cyrus to dovecot. As a goodie, all security protocols have been enhanced again, and dynamic blacklisting is even more sensitive than it was before - as SMTP auth probing is now taken into account.
The hardware specs are as follow:

  • CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3770T CPU @ 2.50GHz
  • 16GB Ram
  • 1x60GB SSD for the ...

 Had always wanted to have a remote site I can do tests with. This whish has been granted by EDIS.
It took a little bit, as I had sent the package in just before the Christmas holidays - but it is up and running now. Even the Monitoring is now active - Monitored from this own site: RemPI Monitoring.

iPod Touch 4G

 Apple support, IOS 6, and knowledge ...
Last Week-End, I thought that I could finally upgrate my iPod 4G to IOS 6.0.1, thinking that most bugs, network WiFi etc. had been finally fixed.
Doing the upgrade, everything worked fine. Everything synced as planned, iPod restarted and - No network ! I had the network Sign up in the left corner, but no possibility to actually connect to the IP on the iPod or do any test from the iPod to another device.
Calling Apple support because they do...

 My QNap running 24/7 anyway - I wondered why I wouldn't install a virtualbox headless runing a WindowXP License I had laying around from an old laptop... Thinking about it though, the QNap is running a busy-box based mini linux, which in no way would run any virtualbox installation.
The answer to that was actually to chroot a mini-debian, mount the device, proc, sys file systems through a bind option, and that was all that was to be done for getting a virtualbox instance running on the NAS...
