Configuring voice service on a Cisco 2801 Integrated Services Router via Asterisk

So I’ve configured voice service a number of times, but never using Cisco equipment. There’s a business starting up here on Orcas Island and they need a number of lines voice and fax service. I had a spare 2801 router … Continue reading

I just realized how old these name servers are

I guess I’ve had them around for a while… Maybe I should clean these up… cjac@ns1:~$ ls /lib/modules/ 2.6.18-4-xen-amd64colliertech.fw+0 2.6.32-5-amd64 2.6.24-19-xen 3.2.0-4-amd64 cjac@ns2:~$ ls /lib/modules/ 2.6.18-4-xen-amd64colliertech.fw+0 2.6.24-19-xen 2.6.32-5-amd64 cjac@ns2:~$ sudo rsync -aue ssh ns1:/lib/modules/`uname -r` /lib/modules I remember editing the … Continue reading

In case you were curious

It doesn’t look like the Debian PowerPC bootloader, yaboot can deal with the root filesystem on an lvm on a raid. *sigh* There goes six hours of my life.

I think perhaps they mean “could join x86 in the server room”

As much as I love PowerPC, and as great as it is that they’re doing this OpenPower thing, I don’t think that the first step should be to eliminate the competition. Perhaps they should put some effort in to taking … Continue reading

This is getting serious.

I might have to visit the HP on which I recently upgraded the iLO firmware… Maybe it would be good if the family visited Seattle. cjac@foxtrot:~$ ps auwx | grep ‘ping ad0.colliertech.o’ cjac 8411 0.0 0.0 10692 920 pts/8 S+ … Continue reading

Windows is *still* loading files

I’m moving the active directory server off of hardware on to the hypervisor. I think if I boot the drive as USB I can install the virtio disk drivers on the system. Fingers crossed! Only thing is that this first … Continue reading
