Spent the day setting up a wireless link to some outbuildings - all rather successful and nice to get out in the fresh air!
Adding daily snapshot backup of SIMS server to list of items to be rsync'd to new OpenSolaris backup server. This needs a patched and re-compiled version of rsync to be able to handle the --copy-devices option. This needs a C compiler. This needs enough disk space on the OpenSolaris server's system disk to install GCC, which it doesn't currently have. Bother.
Fully repatched our our network cabinet in the Sixth Form block, was sick of the 3metre cables in place so all nice short 30CM's!
Our internet has been down since 12:30 - due to ISP issues, which means I can't remote in from home to do some of the other jobs I wanted to get finished tonight. Wonder how many phonecalls / TXT's I get from staff tonight wanting to know why the can't check their e-mails!
Today - FOGed three new N130 netbooks, DELPROFed three ICT Suites, FOGed a staff laptop as it was running slow, updated SIMS, updated and patched servers, ticked the IGMP box on the HP Procurves.
Tomorrow - spring clean some of the staff areas (13GB of pictures is not on in one staff members area), DELPROF rest of ICT Suites, speak to Burasr about my M.R.S. score, tidy my desk and do the washing up.
Wednesday - No idea yet. See what happens tomorrow. Do need to start planning all the new servers though.
Thursday - No idea.
Friday - Try and work from home.
I remember the first package I had to make, Macromedia Studio MX, and the pillock that I am was well chuffed that it worked. I was was wrong. made the package pushed it to our test pc's and oops ... forgot to add the Serial number to the process and had to start again, im sure that CS4 will go smother (fingers crossed).
Lets see spend the day taking my I-Desks to pieces to have some shiny new motherboards fitted by the nice man from Asus (to replace the dodgy ones that over-heat and were naff ) Also had I-Desk to modify the TFT brackets so they are now VESA plates rather than the friction couplings that kept breaking, so big thanks to Steve Brooks the MD at I-Desk for sorting that out for us, will just take us another 2 days to put the room back together now, they are such fiddly things to work in those cases and all those wires! but will all be worth it in the end
Oh and preparing for no electricty for the next 2 days I must remember to dig out the emergency phone from the safe and phone the phone company in the morning to put all the numbers on divert to it so I can actually do some work / have some chance of it.
Beginning, middle and end of my main comms cab repatch.
I don't have a before shot which is a shame as it was previously cabled with 2m & 3m long grey patch leads.
Also a beggining and end shot of my server cab which houses firewall, webfilter and webserver.
Week is getting worse, I think I may have fixed the SCCM errors, but WSUS broke in the process
