I am a software engineer who enjoys building clean, consistent, scalable, and highly testable code using Test-Driven and Agile Development methods on .NET and open-source platforms.

I am also an experienced systems administrator who has been responsible for managing large Windows/Linux networks, building scalable platforms for high-traffic websites, and utilizing my engineering background to build automated deployment, testing, and QA systems.

I try to keep an active lifestyle, and I like working with people who like being active and having fun. Surfing, snowboarding, rock climbing, poker nights ... I'M IN.

@FlorinAsavoaie Tried that just now. Nothing changed, and the same dmesg output: usb 1-3: reset high speed USB device number 5 using ehci_hcd. I'm starting to think that this thing is just dead in the water.

I did not have the path you mentioned. However, I did run this, and it completed, but it didn't change anything that I could tell: root@server-name [/sys/class/scsi_host/host5]# echo "- - -" > scan

Also added output of /proc/usb-storage/5, in case that helps.

comment Using more than 80% power on a circuit in a disaster scenario
"When things go wrong they tend to go wrong in surprising and unexpected ways." I like the way you put that.

comment Using more than 80% power on a circuit in a disaster scenario
@davidgo At this facility, overage fees are charged if your 95th percentile of power usage each month goes over the 80% mark (per circuit). So, the only "guarantee" is likely the 80% mark. However, you might have a point about simply asking them directly what their breaker situation is at the source.

comment Maxing out both PDUs in a rack with redundant power
I ordered a 30A circuit on one cabinet (this is a 5 cab down to 2 cab consolidation effort) because I was close to 80% on both PDUs in the target cabinet. Sounds like we should be going 30A on both cabs and dropping MORE servers. Ugh. Power sucks.

I was finally able to acquire a DHCP address and now it's activated. Thanks!
