    The terrorist activity that has happened in Christchurch has really give me a lot of pause. Thoughts and prayers to everyone affected. It’s truly unbelievable and saddens me greatly. I’m just speechless and angry that this has happened. I don’t think I’ll look at New Zealand in the same way ever again. I’ll be off the forum for a while.

    With the collection of this week's paycheck and my state & federal govt returning a portion of the money they took from me over the course of the past year I now have enough cash to buy the remaining essential components for the pure SSD server.
     
    And what great timing, the very special RAM I'm buying is (for no apparent reason) 45% off. This will save me A LOT of money (provided I buy before the sale ends). Then all I need are the CPUs. Speaking of is anybody looking to offload a pair of Xeon E5 2698v3's? Asking now before I go to eBay.

    Just once, instead of talking about networking and servers I think I'll make a status update sharing something I found funny, or rather something I did that I found funny. Only this one time though. Then it's back to posting about stuff the minority of the forum is interested in.
     
    So at college I'm taking a Phycology course and in the class as part of studying we use a website called quizlet.live. For the uninitiated the prof gives you a room number. You go to the website. Put in the number, then your name. The site puts you in groups and from there you answer questions and whatever group answers all of them correct first wins and for us we get extra grade points.
     
    So as I discovered yesterday. When you put in your name, it doesn't compare it to any dictionary. In fact it doesn't even check if what you put in is alphanumeric. Whatever you give it it uses. So on the overhead projector (so students know who their group members are) the groups looked like this (names do not accurately reflect the names of my classmates)

    So quite frankly when I hit enter I didn't expect it to work, but now that I know that it does I'm very tempted to abuse it until he complains. I kind of hope others start doing it too.

    Are you using a Windows 2008 server for hosting shared drives?
    In that case, I recommend you do not install the update KB4480970. Users are reporting that after installing the update, clients trying to access the share gets "invalid handle" errors. Uninstalling the update seems to solve the issue for now.
     
    Here is the error report:

    The update seems to also cause issues for users in the administrators group that want to use a RD Gateway. If you use the local "Administrator" account then everything works fine though. Just wanted to rub that in a little bit for fun. 😋

    So today one of my hard drives in my server started failing which made me sad, then I made the mistake of going on Slickdeals to find a replacement... now I have 16TB worth of SSDs and HDDs in the mail and ended up renting a 2nd server since I need to move all of the data off to replace all of the drives. 🤣

    The most jank, improper server I've ever built:

    Tried using eight 160GB WB Blue drives to find 1 is bad and another has bad sectors. 3 were locked and had to have their data map cleaned manually because FreeNAS couldn't do it "Permission Denied". So we have 7 usable disk of which I've only configured 6 in mirrors.
     
    The internal hardware is some FM2+ motherboard/CPU with 16GB DDR3. Supports UEFI which was a nice surprise.
    I brought in the 10Gbit SFP+ NIC, transceivers, LC fiber cable, SATA cables, That LAZER PSU (easy way to power 8 drives) I brought in a super junk 4 SATA port PCI_ex1 card which you can partially see here:

    Then I just used the four onboard ports.
     
    Here's the 10Gbit client. You can see the WebUI of the server using Microsoft Edge of all things.

     
    I would like to enable SMB on the 10 & 1Gbit networks. Have the 10Gbit client and 2 1Gbit clients. Then dedicate a 2 drive RAID1 to a user who will use an iSCSI drive and if I can get this crappy netgear router to freaking port forward I'll configure the server to work with SSH/SFTP.
     
    Myself and this one other guy are the only people who are doing extra credit so if we have the time we might as well use the entire class room and assemble a multi-user file sharing network.
     
    As just a proof-of-concept I'd like to use all of the following:
    SMB
    iSCSI
    SSH/SFTP
    Class A/B/& C networking intercommunication
    Demonstrate port forwarding
    RAID mirrors, RAID1
    Demonstrating 10Gbit networking & fiber-optics
    Make our own Cat5e cables following the T-568B standard
    Demonstrate RAM Disks and ZFS RAM read caching
    Public/Private Key authentication
    and some other things.
     
    The funny thing about all this. His extra credit requirements was "Just get something working". Build a computer. Install Linux or something. Well. I'm a networking major. How about I build a multi-user, multi-network file sharing system?
     
    The time to work on this is VERY limited so myself and the guy I'm working with may not get as far as I just listed above but I will try to implement as much of this as I can. This is really just for the lol's, my current average is still a 98.56% the extra credit isn't needed at all.
     
    The due date for this is December 7th IIRC so I'll discuss this project sometime around then again with how far we got.
     
    I might ask for help getting this router to freaking port forward before then actually.
