Chuga-get-together

Greetings!

As some of you know, I have been working a third shift operations type job now for a year.  This means that I have not been able to attend any Chugalunches or other CHUGALUG events.  

However, this week (4/20-4/24) I will be doing some training in the day time.  I would like to call a "Chuga-get-together" for one evening this week.

Now, I know what the rules are. . . you call the event, you pick the time and place.  However, as chairman of this event, I would like to open this to the floor for suggestions, so that everyone has the opportunity to chime in on time preferences and places (Besides, you guys always come up with interesting places I haven't heard of before).

My only requirements are that it has to be in the evening (after 5PM) and it has to be at a place where adult beverages can be consumed.  

I'm looking forward to seeing you all again!

Ubiquity UniFi AP

From: Phil Sieg 
------------------------------------------------------
Need some help.

Wiring up my new house and plan to go with 3 UnifFi AP’s one for each floor and the basement, Tired of having nooks and corners with iffy coverage.

My question is this: If I give then ALL the same SSID and set up management properly, will my devices seamlessly connect with the best coverage? I may have not asked the question properly…. I currently have a TP-Link Access point with an extender at the other end of the house. This works for shit (sorry). I want blanket unified coverage that works seamlessly with ALL of my devices.

Others here have said the Ubiquity set-up is the way to go.

Ready…Set…GO!

OT - Job - Burying outdoor cable run

From: David White 
------------------------------------------------------
I have a client that wants to have a (new) cable run between two different
buildings.

The buildings are a little more than 100 yards from each other, and even
though I've explained that the maximum length that CAT6a is rated for is
328 feet, the client wants to take the risk and run a cable.

I thought about doing fiber, but that would add quite a bit of expense to
the project.

If you or your company does this type of work, I'd like to talk to you
about contracting out this job.

Thanks,
David

Linux has spoiled me

From: Mike Harrison 
------------------------------------------------------
Just ranting while watching things download and install on an MS-Server:

I’m building a testbed for some future Linux integration with Microsoft Biztalk, an “enterprise service bus / message queue” on a VM. I’m a few days of playing around, on my 4th install (I’ve made some stupid mistakes and had to start over) and learned a lot. 

Mostly what I’ve learned from the Linux and Mac worlds is: I’m spoiled. 

Linux servers, until you get into really weird stuff, just seem to be couple of yum installs or apt-get’s away from having just about anything you would normally want, up and running. On the weirder stuff, you might have to add a few things from the standard apt/yum/etc repo’s and then either use a private repo or compile something from scratch. Compiling being a rarer option than it used to be, but is still a good option for special cases. 

I’m pretty crusty on MS-Stuff, so I’ve had to learn a lot that I have intentionally forgotten. But what really surprises me is how different the processes are for installing various Microsoft products. Although the “Server Manager” has a decent start with “Add roles and features” it’s a subset of things, and I think it is missing some common essentials. For other things I’ve had to download installers and run them, use “CAB’s” and “Box’s”.. the weirdest one was install a 32 bit version of Excel, on a 64 bit Server OS because “BAM” requires it and won’t work on 32 bit.. I’ve lost track of the reboots, extra installations... uninstalls (SQL Server Express is installed with Visual Studio, but must be removed so you can install SQL Server).. Obscure menu tree hunting to find an option to turn on or off…  I’ve even found and been following several different official how-to’s that do not agree. But it works. Or at least seems to be. I have yet to use it for anything. It’s obvious that Microsoft has groups that don’t “come together” on how to install software, deal with requirements. Microsoft seems to be missing a company/product line wide package manager, and that seems to be a very antiquated thought process. and some things seem to be only available in 32 bit.. like the BI Tools for Visual Studio. Come on Microsoft, why would things you would run on a nice 64 bit server, requiring 32 bit packages for support? 


That a worldwide collective of a wide range of Linux programmer and sysadmins do such a great job of repositories and installations from them, makes me realize how spoiled I have become, and how thankful I am for everyone’s efforts. 




BEST Cellular deal, period. Not Republic Wireless, REAL cellular.

From: Phil Sieg 
------------------------------------------------------
So Cricket Wireless (which used to SUCK) is now AT&T=E2=80=99s cheap =
product.

Same towers, same map, same LTE, NOT the same cost.

Unlimited Talk/Text/Data (2.5gb till throttle down to 128kbps) $35

Unlimited Talk/Text/Data (5gb till throttle down to 128kbps) $45

Unlimited Talk/Text/Data (20gb till throttle down to 128kbps) $55

I just switched from StraightTalk which was $45 for Unlimited and 3GB =
(64kbps) and we get a $10 discount for adding my wife.

So I have 2 plans of unlimited with 2.5gb data for each of us for $60 a =
month.

It took me an hour to Port, and that is because I had to Call =
StraigtTalk and tell them to let go of my number.

MS-Biztalk Wizard (that is Linux Friendly) needed

From: Mike Harrison 
------------------------------------------------------
I’m trying to help a foreign company with an integration project. Many of their systems are Linux/AIX/Sun/*nix, and some are not. 
Their goal is to use Microsoft Biztalk as an Enterprise Service Bus / Message Queueing interface point for multiple systems. Some of which understand CSV via file imports, some via XML via file imports, some via XML and REST and/or SOAP. They will need to do some data transformations: CSV in, XML out, etc.. 

What they need is an experienced mercenary MS-Biztalk expert that can help them, on site, do integration and train a talented motivated utility employee in care, feeding and minor tweaks. 
You would have to spend some time in the pleasant resort destination country. Probably several weeks over a handful of trips.  It might be possible to take a spouse (you would pay their airfare, some expenses) and they would enjoy the location. 

Specifically looking for the kind of person that can do actual configs, tuning and data transformational code while on site in their test/dev sandbox and possibly help move it to the production systems. As I understand it, the best way to do that with Biztalk is via Visual Studio and specific Biztalk tools. Not my worlds.  

Language: English, Pay and Travel: Corporate expert rates and expenses. 

Caveat: I may be one of the Linux geeks you’d be interfacing with and I’m in charge of the overall project. That can be very good, or bad. :)

Apply by contacting me directly first. I’ll reply with more formal information. Trying to do this via informal networking channels before hitting the recruiters and job boards.

Chugalug Digest, Vol 31, Issue 81

From: "Kite, Mike" 
------------------------------------------------------
Thanks Lynn and Meuon.

Putting a pipe between domain and user bears the same bitter fruit :(

It's an OEL6 server, which I think, is pretty close, in this case, to RHEL6.

It does indeed have the return code -6 in /var/log/messages when trying to CIFS mount it.
And I may as well just keep trying smbmount rather than smbget, simply because I'll need to put files there as well as get them.

I'm trying to find the Red Hat article you mention, though this machine does not have a  /etc/request-key.d/ folder.  I do have a Red Hat portal account, I'm trying to recover my pwd to that now.

Thanks

Small job

From: David White 
------------------------------------------------------
I'd like to consider hiring someone to help me write a program that will be
used on my mail server. I may decide to write the whole thing myself in
PHP, but this isn't the type of work I do best.

I have a MySQL database, mail, with 3 tables: 1 for virtual users, 1 for
virtual aliases (forwards), and 1 for virtual users (actual users on the
system that receive email).

Each table has a primary key value of the domain ID, and the aliases &
users table also have individual primary key IDs.

I need a little web GUI that will allow a user to login to add, delete or
modify existing email addresses (change password).

Currently, all passwords (in virtual

OT: Gear review Dell Precision Server/workstations

From: Phil Sieg 
------------------------------------------------------
I needed a high power multi-core server with lots of ram for my new house. M=
y uses include Plex streaming, IP cam DVR, and multi machine virtualization.=
 I wanted dual Xeon Quads with at least 32gb ram.

This is easy and cheap if you can get by with a 20" deep 1U or 2U server. I f=
ound great units for under $250 that fit the bill other than they are all LO=
UD.

So I did some googling, trolled some forums and discovered that the quietest=
 servers are the ones that look like desktops commonly billed as high end "w=
orkstations"

I just got a dell precision that will mount horizontally in my 1/3 sized rac=
k, has 32GB ram and dual quad Xeons all for about $250.

Here is the best part... It is practically silent at idle. It has a huge 140=
mm in front of the case and a few low speed (or speed controlled) 80mm fans s=
trategically placed inside.

Sill waiting for a few parts to come in to load up OS and really test it, bu=
t i think is is going to be perfect.

There are about a dozen different versions of this particular Dell beastie t=
hat all share the same case structure with different guts. It is rack width a=

OT: Job Opportunity: American Poolplayers Association

From: Lisa Ridley 
------------------------------------------------------
I know this is a LUG list, but I also know there are a couple of people =

Anyone hiring?

From: David Rucker 
------------------------------------------------------
Hello,

Most of you may not know me but I follow the list a lot and reply very
rarely. I currently work for RadioShack as one of their Expert Repair
Technicians doing cell phone and tablet repairs. I am one of the few of
their techs that can do advanced soldering. I also owned and operated a
computer service shop for several years as well. I am current going to
school at Volkswagen in their automation mechatronics program. RadioShack
is on their last leg and is now circling the drain, so to speak. Pending
being purchased by Amazon or sprint. Most job listings in the tech field
are morning afternoon shifts. I need something from 4 pm to 9 pm during the
week and flexible on weekends. I can provide a full resume, just wanting to
see if anyone knew of anything or had anything available themselves.

Thank you in advance!

I am in the job market, and still looking for system administrator or

If you have any job leads, please contact me. I am still looking, and
willing to relocate.

McDell Hackintosh>>> Quad Core/16gb/500GB SSD $617

From: Phil Sieg 
------------------------------------------------------
So I have successfully Hackintoshed a dell Optiplex 780 Desktop (between mini tower and SFF in size 16x16x5). It is VERY fast and silent. I must say I am impressed. Here is the build:

Optiplex 780
Intel Q9650 Core2 Quad 3.0ghz (Will replace with Xeon Quad when it arrives)
16GB 1333mhz ram
500 GB Crucial M100 SSD
1TB Western Digital Blue (Time Machine internal drive)
Nvidia GeForce GT730 1GB DDR5 low profile. Triple monitor support ;-)

So a Quad core 3 ghz with 16gb ram and 1tb Time machine drive that performs like a MacPro (older one of course) for $617 ALL IN.

I can’t say I will never buy another Mac… But I might not buy another Mac Desktop.

The ONLY thing I do not have working yet is the APP Store, and Messages.
