Tall bald and geeky. My perfect job would be as a DevOps guy where I could spend my time automating out the gremlins...with maybe a little firefighting. Fire proofing lets you sleep at night but there is always room to combat the unexpected and it keeps things from getting dull.

comment Unknown device showing up in network scan
If you are on (or have access to) a host on the same network look at the arp table to get the MAC of the device and then search for it's manufacture, should at least give you a clue to what it is.

comment Logstash Server Log FIle Flooded With “Failed to flush outgoing items” Error Messages
If I use the "http" node when I send data to the elasticsearch output it works, changing it back to "node" causes it to fail again. I assume this is because I am running ES 1.4.4 and Logstash is expecting 1.1

comment Determine UNIX version without using uname command?
What do you mean by OS name? The version? The patch level? That it's just AIX in general?

comment www record on DNS
They cannot access it with out the record, if they go to www.XXX.com right now it will be invalid unless you have a wildcard record for that zone which will make any arbitrary address.XXX.com match the host specified - generally not a good idea.

comment How do I have a local computer load a virtual machine guest OS residing on the server?
Or a terminal server. You can also use most of the hypervisors to run a VM where the files are on a network share. Using NFS or SMBv3 this is faster than you would think, a lot of big virtual server environments are set up this way because it's convenient. Just beware of the performance impact on your servers...

comment Tomcat, Apache, MySQL tuning
Nice answer, I would also ask why you are front ending this with Apache HTTPD, Tomcat is much faster with out it under most cases. If you need the HTTPD then you may want to try using nginx which frequently does a better job of handling multiple connections.

You can do it, issue a certificate to be used by the application itself.

comment Why do “net use” and windows “map network drive” share have a drastic speed difference?
You'd need to sniff to verify but a guess is net use is using SMB 2 and the GUI is using SMB 3

comment Hudson proxy configuration on amazon EC2-VPC instance
Does your instance have a Public or Elastic IP associated with it? If not you will need to have NAT or an HTTP proxy for it to reach the Internet. Can you reach external sites with IE\curl from the instance?

What happens if you run the script manually as the Jenkins user? Any reason you're not using SCP instead of SFTP?

Will check this as answered if no one can give me a better one, I figured this was how I'd have to do it but what a pain. I guess I'll script it in Jenkins
