Saturday Early AM Maintenance

     Shortly after midnight Saturday morning, I will be rebooting all of the Intel Linux based servers for a kernel upgrade.  Between the actual reboots and checking to make sure NIS and NFS mounts properly re-establish after rebooting, this will probably take about two hours but no one service should be done for more than about ten minutes for this process.

     Then after this some servers I will be taking down to make backups.  This may take longer for some machines, up to about 45 minutes.

 

RecordMyDesktop

     I have installed RecordMyDesktop on Centos6.eskimo.com, Centos7.eskimo.com, Debian.eskimo.com, Fedora.eskimo.com, Julinux.yellow-snow.net, Mint.eskimo.com, Mxlinux.eskimo.com, Opensuse.eskimo.com, Scientific.eskimo.com, Scientific7.eskimo.com, Ubuntu.eskimo.com, and Zorin.eskimo.com.

     On Debian based machines, it is available under the Applications -> Sound & Video menu in mate and gnome.  On Redhat based machine it is available only from the command line.

High Wind Advisory Tonight

     There is a high wind advisory which predicts wind gusts up to 60 MPH for Shoreline (where I am located).  This may cause outages of my telephone and / or Internet connection and thus ability to provide customer service but should not affect online services as the latter are co-located in a robust co-location building with UPS and diesel backup power and dual-fiber connection on two different routes to the Seattle SIX.

     If you call and get voice mail, please leave a message with your name, telephone number, user ID, nature of your call, and time frames when return calls are okay and I will return your call as soon as possible.

     If the matter is more urgent, please go online and under the support drop down menu choose “Tickets” and generate a ticket.  This will generate an e-mail which I can pick up via my tablet if power and / or Internet is out.
