  • 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 laying around and heard that it’s possible to provision voice service using these machines. So […]

  • I should be able to do voice with this hardware now, right?

  • 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.

  • Bringing the VMs back online

    okay. New hypervisor hardware. Switching from xen to KVM. I took a snapshot of the xen partitions and moved them to a holding location during migration. I am now imaging these partitions to the LVM block devices: calcifer:/home/cjac# for guest in `ls /usr/src/moonunit-guests/ | grep -v -e etc | awk -F- ‘{print $1}’` ; do […]

  • 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 back a large part of the market. Didn’t these guys read The Art of War? […]

  • 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+ Apr25 0:32 ping ad0.colliertech.org cjac@foxtrot:~$ ping ad0.colliertech.org PING ad0.colliertech.org (208.115.126.68) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 […]

  • Relatively high sustained rates detected along I-405

  • 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 boot off of a USB device takes *sooooo* long!

  • Gotta’ get ’em all.

    And now I have them all. Maybe I can reduce the load on my wan pipe by setting up a mirror for the island.
