Welcome to April Edition of the News
Busy at work, so I've been behind on the website! What can I
say, a 63 hour work week does put a person behind! Now, with this weekend free I've been able
to do some updating of the website.
This weekend was Melissa's wedding shower and what a bash it was. No, I was baby-sitting Cody trying to
ensure no unexpected mess.
Pam was in Salt Lake this past week as Shannon had surgery to repair his cheekbone. He was attacked in his
apartment the week before by an unknown intruder. He required ten stitches in his head and needed to have his
cheekbone repositioned. We are grateful that he wasn't seriously hurt and that Taylor wasn't there.
She was able to get some quality Grandma
time in with Taylor for a few days. This afforded me an opportunity to be with Cody, who was not impressed that
Pam was gone for the week. Cody is not allowed to roam around the house when we're at work, except for the
kitchen area which has access via the pet door. But the boy was so determined:

Last weekend April 15, 16, and 17th my free time was devoted
to doing a major IP addressing scheme change out, that required
over 100 of our unix servers(HPUX, AIX, LINUX), plus new switches
were added into the mix. Since I'm the EMC CLARiiON SANman, I'm
responsible for the storage area network and had to deregister
18 servers from Navisphere and their host name. Pretty straight
forward, until the SP controller couldn't keep up and hung the
K10 Governor, and a cold boot of the SP was a bust! Besides that,
two of my SAN fiber switches didn't like the new network, and
would auto reboot every two minutes. Now that's was when the panic
really started to set in!!! Got the FE out and replaced the SP
controller, and left the fiber switch off the new network and
all was well, but these fun and games put us over six hours behind
