Today’s Activities:

  • Backups:
    • DNS troubles. With the upgrade of the DNS servers on July 27
      and the change of the method for creating views, some things broke.
      I figured out on Sunday that the backup system was not able to
      retrieve PTR records for a subset of active clients.
      Unable to repair the view (lack of knowledge), I updated the /etc/hosts
      file with the necessary information to circumvent the issue until
      those with the knowledge are able to make repairs.
    • Added 40 tapes to the scratch pool.
    • Tape Vaulting: two (2) went, 40 returned and were labeled.
    • Updated the relabelem script to correctly go back 26 months.
    • POC – yeah, more of that.
  • LDAP/Accounts:
    • Two issues (one from last week). Continuing to wait on HR clarification.
    • HR clarifies that one is their mess, and the other is what I thought.
    • Updated group memberships for IAM per request.

      2. Correctly go back 26 months (including the day of the month)
