Email server decides to throw an absolute wobbly at 8:30am. Losing all it's info from AD. Had no emails since then. Currently working with the boss to recover the data, luckily the databases containing the emails were unharmed. Flipping Exchange 2010.
My day started with a roasting from my boss because the network wasn't working. As you may have read in another post one of my switches died just before Christmas.
So new one on order but today has been mostly spent taking out non-essential services (i.e. the ICT suite) and re-routing the machines off the dead switch onto the live ones. My switch cabinet looks even more like a mare's nest now. Then tomorrow when the new switch comes I'll have to do it all again the other way round. And - as my "desk" is in the ICT suite I've been frozen all day - no machines on so no heat to speak of.
What was that someone said about more snow? Bring it on. Not that I'm work shy but I would like some appreciation for my efforts, all I get is moans. And a happy new year to all my school staff NOT. Thank goodness it's home time I'll go and get warm now.
Worked well for decorating
Not too bad here really, just had a CC3 have a fit on an update and wouldn't even healthcheck :| Seems to be ok after several restarts - think it's just gotten too cold!
Keep forgetting about the aircon though, get out the car into freezing cold, walk into a lovely warm school, 15 minute chat and "happy new year" banter with the head & staff, then into the server room which was easily colder than it was outside :|
Not too bad a first day back. Had appraisal with HT, all okay E-Mail not sending from our exchange box to county addresses, turns out to be a county DNS issue. Discovered that I can now update Sophos to latest version as county have now got ISA rules rules to allow access to Sophos unproxied, job for tomorrow. Rebooted all servers at end of day to install updates and discovered that RDP into terminal server form outside school now works again. And finally installed ECDL exam software in IT suite...
Tomorrow will probably not be so good.........
What's one of those ? Never had one since I started at our school - [ 5 years ago ]Had appraisal with HT
Last one I had was over 7 years ago now when I worked in industry....
i had a mobo battery go, a stolen power lead and isa not authenticating to ad so not working! that was bout it
edit: outlook web access not working internet was fine
