Yeah no gently caress SMB, and no I don't mean SMB as how cisco/emc/vmware mean it I mean the sub ~30 user company that makes up a large portion of where they want to move me to.

My goal is to, learn more so than I do now in Vmware/net/storage, cert up, and be living in NC Charolette/Raleigh/RTP in 2 years. (OR's cost of living don't compare to NC's).




Don't get me wrong, I don't mind doing the Stuff outside vmware/network/storage, and I do well at it; but my passion is with Virtualization/net/storage; not with "My legacy SBS 2003 server sucks fix it" or "well can you just code or script the app from these legacy Redhat servers?"

Hell I love semi-modern *nix servers, and working with most OS's or server's after 2008. Jobs good but hell, I really though when I signed on after 6 months my focus was vmware/net/storage which was really the whole point of my signing this company. Ahh well.

They want to get 2 employees in one and they believe they can get it. It seems they are right.

But yeah gently caress SMB; forget the right way and learn therightway

Example: Went onsite to one of our larger customers to assist an engineer who never did a VMware/Storage deployment.
"So uhh what raid level should I put this $storage$ in"
I asked wasn't this done during the spec out for the storage(which I offered to help in), and got a "well ain't no time for that". Granted I knew the environment from some support of servers but still...

I looked at it, went back to what I was doing. Another IM. Couple of minutes later, another.
Then an email showed up with the IM text pasted in.
I went to type in the IM window that I'm busy when my phone rang on its second line. Ignored that, set IM to DND.

Then a coworker came over and asked if I was busy because this person asked them to tell me they needed to talk to me. I told them I was busy and I'll get to it later.

Haha, touché. So far as I'm concerned if you've gone to both my manager and his manager to accuse me of poor communication because your email went unanswered for 40 minutes (this is what actually happened) while I was trying to deal with a major issue on another project then that's a baseless personal attack on me.

What I mean when I say "the bare minimum of service" is "exactly what company policy dictates, no more, no less". I will continue to respond to your emails in a reasonable time frame, I will attend your meetings and be constructive, and in general behave with the professionalism you're so sadly lacking. However, I am pretty well known in my job for being approachable and willing to help out with things which aren't under my job description if I have the time to do so, but that's at my discretion; I have no duty to go above and beyond for someone who tried to endanger my employment and financial security and so all of that goes out of the window for you after something like that. If that's being vindictive, I'm comfortable with that.

If your company won't allocate the appropriate resources, then you shouldn't have applied the bubblegum in the first place. Snapshots, in the context of VMware, are not meant to be used for more than a few days, max.

Your company doesn't view those VMs as business critical, end of discussion. Don't treat them as such. If they change their mind the first time something happens and there's no way to roll back, then all the better. Start looking for jobs because you don't want to work at such an awful place, anyway.

Heh. When I was working at the plastics plant, one of the contracts we had was for bezels for big ol' CRT monitors, for medical instrumentation. And of course the <redacted> Corporation insisted on a specific material to be used.

Which produced the most astonishing odor of urine-mixed-with-chlorine. Smelled like the bathroom at a public pool - people sometimes had to be swapped off that job because they were getting nauseated. (And it got worse at the end of the job, when they purged out the leftover material into a messy semi-liquid pile on the floor - three or four pounds of that, steaming hot.)

Hmmmm. Just got a wonderful evil idea for an "optical disc" that just produces odor when heated...

I cannot telnet to 64738, and yes, the rules in the security group are custom TCP/UDP rules 0.0.0.0/0 to 64738. I verified with netstat that murmurd is listening on 64738 as well. I also just created a fresh RHEL instance, with a new security group using identical settings, and canyouseeme.org still cannot see 64738, with the reason ":No route to host". It does see SSH running on 22 though...

I don't have to deal with user emails at this point. When I did, I made a point of responding to them whether or not I was busy just to say "I'm aware of this, but I'm working on something else". This is stupidly easy to do with a generic autoresponder or away message on your IM client. It increases user satisfaction, keeps your management out of your hair, and generally makes everything flow better. In a user-facing role, I'm probably not spending an hour in the server room. And if I am, my manager drat well knows what I'm doing.

That said, it's more that "sending an email to my supervisor asking why I haven't responded in 40 minutes is a baseless personal attack". Either this is something that should endanger your job (because you're not in a position where you have the leeway to shut off your email client and/or go to the machine room) or something your boss should send the user to the helpdesk for or other otherwise defend you. It's not a personal attack for a user to wonder why it's taken 40 minutes to respond to an email, whether or not you're busy.

It's worth noting that in the original rant, he mentions setting DnD after several attempts at being contacted. If they were set from the beginning I'd agree someone trying to break through and complaining that they can't get the attention of someone is probably an expectation issue. Setting DnD after they've tried to get your attention repeatedly without a quick "Dude, busy, call back in 20" is a dick move.

Are you sure you actually set those rules, though?

This is exactly it. iptables parses as:

"Packet comes in. Go to appropriate table (prerouting, input, etc)"
"Go through rules in the table, top to bottom."
"If it matches a rule, go (-j ACCEPT literally means "jump to a built-in rule which says ACCEPT this". You can also "-j SOMEOTHERTABLE" to process more"
"If it falls through that table (not ACCEPT, DROP, whatever), keep going down the first one"
"If it reaches the end without matching anything, hit the default policy (yours is accept)"
But your packets hit the "REJECT" rule before any of the rules for mumble.

The Third Man posted:

If so, why the hell wouldn't new rules be added to the top of the chain?
"iptables -I" inserts in the beginning. "iptables -A" appends to the end. You get the option. And you can insert at an arbitrary line if you really need to (you probably don't). "service iptables save" will dump rules in /etc/sysconfig/iptables (and somewhere in /etc on debian) which does nothing but write rules to a file. iptables-restore executes them. You can check iptables-save and iptables-restore (which should be plain-jane scripts, but depends on your distro) to see where it sticks them, then edit that file willy-nilly if you don't want to muck with adding rules one by one...

I AM CURRENTLY JACKING OFF TO PICTURES OF MUTILATED FEMALE CORPSES, IT'S ALL VERY DEEP AND SOPHISTICATED BUT IT'S JUST TOO FUCKING HIGHBROW FOR YOU NON-MISOGYNISTS TO UNDERSTAND

P.S. STILL COMPLETELY DEVOID OF MERIT


So I might have a on the line, and wanted to get some outside input. This might even be a little premature, as numbers and such haven't been discussed, but I passed the technical phone interveiw and seemed to do pretty well on meeting the managers, and from what I've been told the local market is soft on quality windows people. I've got other things to consider even if all that works out, but

The company's previous IT person left after 7 years and has left everything in a bit of a mess. Basically they'd put off updating a lot of their software in favor of working on other projects that were more immediately important to their operations, and he left almost as soon as it was done, so now they've got a lot of updating to do. 2003 Servers that need updating, XP machines that need 7 before April, plus a few other things. I walked into a situation where things were almost as messed up at my current place, but I had budget and management backing to get this place whipped into shape. Win7 rolled out, hardware/software inventory sorted, better policies on network storage, etc. I also had a central software department to help sort and manage the software inventory.

So before I accept an offer, I'm going to want to make sure the budget exists to refresh their desktop hardware, and update their microsoft licensing. Does anyone any experience with this sort of thing? They have an IT consultant running things (who will be playing sort of CITO and covering my time off going forward) and from what he says and the impressions I got during the imperson interviews they're interested in getting their house in order.

Last week I was at one of our satellite sites who have this weird database type program. I was talking to them about XP going EoL and we'll need to make plans to get the machine upgraded to Win7 if they're going to keep using it on the network. Today it gets malware on it.
