I wear many hats at my workplace.

Primarily a Database Developer, but also programmer, web designer, DBA, sysadmin, and general office bitch.

I work for a small custom software house in Sydney, Australia. We use all manner of tools - but mainly MSSQL and a Rapid Application Tool called eDeveloper uniPaaS Magic XPA.

comment Why don't TP-Link 24x-switches propagate clients when cascaded in two?
It sounds like the 2nd switch is running its own DHCP server independent of the rest of the network. Does your reservation happen to be the first or last address in the DHCP range?

They were both EXT3? Do you mean that one them was not EXT3?

If you haven't gone too far down the path of this AD, then take the chance of changing it, right now, before it's too late.

I'm not sure if you're being serious or not. I am no community leader, I have never claimed to be a community leader. I am on meta every day, but because virtually all meta activity happens outside my timezone, I come, I read, I vote. Everything is already answered. I don't just throw my voice out to create more noise. How would you know what mods are doing? This kind of elitist attitude is why I do not want you back as a moderator.

Wow, you're all crazy. I for one do not endorse Hopelessnoob as a mod for reasons that @Shog9 has mentioned. I put this nomination in the same bucket as Evan Carrols'.

I don't even know what you mean by that comment. What I want to know is why you've decided to make a comeback given that you've retired in the past? What makes you think that you won't just retire again in a year or two? Nobody expects a moderatorship to be a lifelong commitment, but to have two sucks of the sav, it better be a good reason to vote for you over someone else.

You've retired as a moderator in the past, what's changed since then?

Your moderate voice is a nice change from the calls of "GET OUT OF OUR SITE NOOBS". I've held the view for a long time that being exclusive is not always the right course.

I am so pissed off at what the actual problem was (see my answer in this question). But hey, at least now I have a spare on-site server and totally up to date firmware.

comment SSD as cheap alternative to SAN storage?
As the author of your linked storage question, and its primary answer writer, I don't want you to get the wrong idea. Yes, enterprise storage is expensive, but you are totally right; you don't NEED enterprise storage. You need a local, volatile scratch disk, so you're heading in the right direction. The real challenge will be getting your storage/sysadmin teams to get things done.

Firmware was shamefully out of date, but alas, after update no success. I received a spare R710 today, so going to swap the drives into the new server. Gotta be faulty hardware.

Yeah, that's what I meant :\

Re-installing ESXi has not helped. This all points to a hardware problem. I'll try updating the drivers tonight, and I am getting another server to swap the drives into, worst case.

Hrm. Well I wish I'd known this 6 months ago. It seemed like a good idea at the time to make the most of the physical media. The installation back to the SDHC card is almost finished, so if this gets me through this blip I will organise a time to move ESXi back to the physical drives.
