ss839 pro picture

 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...

New home for server/NAS

 it took some time to actually get the Furniture for our (my wife and mine) office, and since it came last week, I couldn't push back the fact that I needed to move the server from it's old (non design) Rack, to a new one I am partly responsible for.
For the sake of Administration, I did put in a KVM, and mounted a screen outside on the Rack, and even added a space for the keyboard, making it look pretty cool in the end. I just hope I won't get a temperature problem, as it's all in...

Network connection flaky

Linux Hardware

 Seems the French Telecom and Free Telecom play the ping pong game. France Telecom says the physical line is Ok, and I tell Free Telecom the line is not OK and they see it too. According to this picture, the quiality is really really bad. If I have 15 minutes of connectivity without disconnects, I am lucky at the moment.
No chance in playing any online based game at all. Especially during this Week-End.

Issues have been fixed end of February - at last. Actually - whe...

outages on router ... [updated]

Linux Hardware

 I finally figured out why my connection has some outages. There are 2 causes for this - and I'm afraid I can fix only one. The Modem I have sometimes gets a hickup - and stalls. This one needs a hard-reset. I'll probably hook up a timer onto it's power supply to get it fixed. The other issue is a software issue on the firewall/router. The built-in hardware watchdog will go into shutdown mode instead of reboot mode - forcing a normal shutdown. Only a regular power-cycle can fix that one. However ...

Routerboard replaced [updated]

 As usual - I can't stand things/hardware that does not work at 100%. Hence - I ordered a replacement board, and put it in place today. The new router board is the next generation, means that it has Gbit ethernet ports, and provides a USB Port as a Micro SD port that could be used. A test has shown 38MiBytes of FTP transfer speed - which is a good indication for GB Network.

It took me longer to actually get the new setup running - as the ethernet ports have been rotated somehow - making...

Nasty router issue  
Posted by smurphy on Friday, 14 January 2011 - 14:51  GMT

 while being on travel for work, suddenly I was unable to reach my home-site anymore. When I came back, everything was still running, except the internet connectivity would not work, and the reason was unknown.
I first suspected an issue with my ISP, however testing it with them, it was not the ISP's fault, rather on my router. However - identifying the issue avered a pain, as it was not the a fatal problem, rather a non fatal.
For the router, the interface was there, and it tried conn...

Harddisk replaced

Linux Hardware

 A new hard-disk, 160GB has been put into place. With this - hopefully, all issues should go away. Note - it is possible that some files are missing - as some errors were notified during the copy process. However, taking a copy of the still running system has probably less missing files than a 28 hours old backup.
For those reading their mails on my system, if an old mail is missing - let me know. I can restore it from the old backups (50 Weeks rotation is configured)...

 the harddisk of stargate starts to fail. As I'm locked out on an island, and no ETA for my return is available, I tried to fix all issues, relocate the bad blocks on the harddisk. Hopefully this remote-repair operation will last long enough until my return to swap the hard-drive.

Servers in place

Linux Hardware

 The servers are in place now. Took some time to find a place to put them, but at last, as they are passively cooled, I had to find an open space for them. The UPS and KVM Switch are of course also available, as a screen and keyboard for admin tasks. Check for yourself.

What you see here, are from top left to bottom right: Routerboard RB493AH Firewall Router (ADSL Modem is hanging on the left side of the Rack), Screen/Keyboard, Philips Skype Telephone.

 The hardware has been moved to a new location. Up to now - it is in a temporary space which needs to be reworked as soon as a new storage rack has been found. Eventual outages can not be avoided.
