Good idea, though it's an HP L3 switch. I know it's not the cabling as I can take a tester to it and see it's fine. Also all the cables from the patch pannels to the switches are factory made (for some reason the boss has a phobia of making network cables but doesn't mind making phone lines--never did get that) but they all test good and the simple swap the cable with a new one yeilded the same results so it's either we have a lot of bad NICs or the switch.

 

The switch itself is about 4 years old and has been through multiple power surges from old UPSs failing before the UPSs were replaced.

 

LT: Nothing like working on a Sunday to do something simple (reboot switches) and have the voice vlan become inaccessible while you're the only one there. :P

 

At least it was only a matter of rebooting our Cisco L3 switch stack. Apparently it looks like the slave came up before the master.

Remember the rules of VTP make sure there are few VLAN Domains Servers. all others should be clients or Transparent. Also Network reboot's should be routers/ switches then servers

 

LT: Sick with the flu. Still needing to finish packing and moving. Its all Blah.

@Kenshin. Sorry for the late reply, but yeah, Project X Zone is basically a follow up to Namco x Capcom.

I thought so. Thanks ;)

 

@naota: Now that you mention it I'll have to check on VTP. I'm 99% certain they're all in transparent mode, but I'll double check as the more I got into it, the more of a mess I'm finding... When they first got the switches, they had an outside company make the configs for them and they've been "updated" since and now we have a mess of not knowing what is where etc and I've been struggling with putting the pieces together. Their "documentation", turns out, is a collection of configs for them and a utility they use to see what IP is on what switch port. So it's a much larger mess than I had anticipated with no standardization for switch port setup, trunks to other switches on random ports, etc. The only "diagram" is a floor map of port numbers for the patch panels. And....their "trunk" from the Cisco L3 stack to HP L3 switch is just an unconfigured port on both sides.......AAAAAHHHHH!!!!!!!!

 

LT: Why is it that it's only when things go wrong that you find out how bad things are setup? Then you're stuck with what you have because they don't want to spend the time to fix it properly...(ok..deep breath) Hope you get over the flu soon. Moving is bad enough, but moving + flu has got to be hell.

Got to love having to fix other peoples messes. Still have to do that in the call center. It looks like you have much work to do to get the documentation up to snuff.

 

Im feeling a bit better today. We had the movers move the furniture. Cable installed and all boxes are working flawlessly. Now I have the task of fishing the wires through the walls.

That shouldn't be too bad. Are there already cuts in the walls for wallplates or are you just putting them in along side other things like phone jacks? IMO fishing cables is fun. Yeah sometimes they get snagged or the fish tape lets go of the cable because it got stuck and you pulled real hard on it, but still fun IMO. It has a feeling of "accomplishment" when it's done. ;)

 

Conduit (even flex conduit) makes it easier, but I've still had it get stuck.

 

LT: I'm off Monday for President's Day. yay! I can relax and recharge. ;)

Got to cut the holes in the walls. Then use the flexible drill bit to dill into the basement then use a spade bit from the basement to Enlarge the hole so that it can accomodate the 3 - 6 wires.

Sounds like a fun project IMO :)

 

Though the arm going numb again and again can get anoying.

 

LT: Too bad there's only one of me. If I could make temporary copies of myself I could work on the switches, the new reverse DNS issues of today, the VPN router migration from one WAN IP to another, continue my never ending fight with the backup system, work on the iPad and laptop I need to get setup for the users, man the help desk, and go out and get laid all at the same time. :P

Sounds like fun. Sounds like you need an assistant or other people who are knowledgeable as you are for your job.

 

The arm is still going numb on and off. Going to see the doctor on Thursday to see if he can find out wth is going on.

 

LT: fully moved out of the apartment and into the house. I am slowly making this house a home. One thing I need to do is buy a new mattress and boxspring and a bed to put it on and retire the mattress I have had for the past 10 year.  After that Need to buy a desk and mount my tv's on the wall.  then CATCH UP ON ANIME!

LT: One could try running some events through the forums and advertising for them on the Facebook page thereby getting people to come here to find out about them. Also why wait for conventions, if most people live relatively close together try and put together an anime watching event or something. Nothing elaborate, just something to get people together in one area to watch anime, talk about manga, show off their little collectables, talk about anime, etc, which, again, can be organized through the forums. You have them all creating their accounts so why not send mass mailings to announce it/get people in here to talk about it, etc?

Kenshin, I know were trying to see what we can do for a meet up event. I know spaces are limited in the area where I live. I do know there are some members here that would be able to attend. I like your idea about an online event. How does a Virtual Anime Club Viewing. Like getting everyone together to watch an Anime Via Youtube or Hulu and then Discuss about things in the forums or perhaps the chat room.
