8. Januar 2018: Montag

Today’s Activities:

  • Backups:
    • Added another forty (40) tapes to the Scratch pool.
    • Reclaimed thirty-four (34) tapes for the vaults.
    • Clones started for the week (after cleaning up the aborted mess from last week).
    • 09742035: EMC says port 500 is normal – that plain recover should do it.
      Bzzzt! Sorry… thanks for playing… Next idea?
    • 09742035: SME is now suspicious it is something unique to our environment.
      HA HA HA.
  • LDAP/Accounts:
    • Over the weekend, the LDAP update failed twice:
      • Friday – parenthesis characters in name – soundex go boom.
        Updated code to use Net::LDAP::Util’s escape_filter_value routine
        to protect my personal time from the idiots.
      • Sunday – Banner feed file truncated – too many changes fault.
        Rolled Banner feed file back to Saturday night’s version,
        set changes to none, ran the rest of the processes.
  • Meetings:
    • Linux – up for over a year…
    • Meltdown & Spectre…
    • Banner/Portal – Network IDs are not immortal.
