As a student I would certainly be upset as well.

You should think about if their lack of trust is in you personally, or in the institution, you could be projecting this on yourself unnecessarily.

What;s the cheapest/simplest method of broadcasting multiple SSIDs, even if none of them have the ability to act as an AP?

grounding creates a stable field. not that it matters in this case since there's huge holes in the middle of the cage.

CIFS and SMB is the same thing.

Also what's silo in this context?

spankmeister
Jun 15, 2008








notwithoutmyanus posted:

Yeah, I wasn't sure why CIFS/SMB were somehow identified separately. Noise I guess.

Silo in this context is 2-3 teams buying poo poo that does the same thing - usually after having dedicated tools and shared access, or not telling other teams the poo poo they're doing (which impacts the other team), or people literally hiding the poo poo they're doing because they know they're doing it wrong.
Ah yeah of course.

So in any case using PST's over the network is a bad idea. That adobe stuff also doesn't really sound like a winner when used over SMB. I think you need to start doing some local replication and caching or something.

This is a production physical server without disk cleanup installed. When we asked when we could reboot it to install the feature, we were told no downtime was acceptable. Sometimes this place is incredible.

The trick is not to ask for downtime. The trick is to just tell them it's going to be down for X amount of time.

I always learned that as long as the wires are the same on both ends, and you keep the pairs paired, the actual colors didn't matter. Is this not true?

This is correct.

Judge Schnoopy posted:

I imagine crosstalk would gently caress it up if you have tx and rx or either with poe in the same twisted pair. Not make it totally unusable, but would impact performance especially if you are running 1gig and poe

There's no way for this to happen if you keep the colors the same at both ends and keep the pairs paired.

E: as far as OP's problem goes, my guess is that the cables were crimped incorrectly to begin with.

Don't crimp your own cables, it's just not worth it. Just get a bunch of pre made ones in different lengths.

Question time.

I have a client who has about 900MB of SOP and JSA documentation and needs a way to distribute this to a bunch of users in the field who use company issued iPads attached to the corporate MDM MaaS360 (PS: gently caress MaaS360). The goal is to limit the amount of mobile data usage to near-zero (for this solution) because these guys are literally out in the wilderness and need access to the documents no matter where they are, which likely means a local (potentially cached) copy of every single document. The devices have enough storage so physically storing them is not a problem, but I'm running into roadblocks trying to find something that will accomplish this for us.

The ideas that have been suggested and why we don't *think* they apply (but I'd be happy to be proven wrong on any of them) are:
  • Dropbox - Does not provide a method to locally cache that many documents, we don't think
  • OneDrive - See Dropbox
  • SharePoint - Is loving SharePoint
I don't need the app to be super polished or pretty looking; as long as it does the job reliably, I'm interested. I have a hard time believing we're the first people to have this problem, but all of my googling has turned up nothing but apps that help you create SOPs (we've already got them created; just need to get them to the device), or file sharing apps that have no concept of caching.

Anyone have any ideas or places I should look closer?

You can select individual files to be available offline with Dropbox. Just do that for all the docs. Or did you already look into this and is there a limit you're running into?

e:
Is this not enough?

quote:

Is there a limit on the number or size of folders I can make available offline?

You can make up to 100 folders available offline.

A folder can't be saved for offline use if:

The folder contains more than 10,000 files

The folder contains more than 100 GB

A ticket came in (at midnight):

"Database full in Exchange server"
User called in reporting that he hasn’t gotten email since 1:00pm today. We investigated inside the exchange server and found an error on one of the exchange databases (arcmboxdb4) “431-4.3.1 STOREDRV, mailbox disk is full”. This database is stored on server: <SERVER> within the H drive. The H disk on this server is almost full.

Who needs to be contacted for follow-up and what is their expectation regarding contact: <USER NAME>, only email, user is not available for the rest of the night



If you fix their email it's not a problem anymore is it?
