All of the nodes, since some were sold (two rx2600s, over time), were freshly reinstalled and fine-tuned. So I can keep better track of all the [FONT="Courier New"]SYSGEN[/FONT] parameters, configured logicals, installed software and so on. (Configuring and implementing a system in a consistent and redundant manner is essentially the ‘VMS way,’ of which I'm needless to say greatly in favour.)
In the last few weeks I ran into some problems with new, consumer-grade, routers that I purchased (one of NETGEAR and another of Cisco-Linksys). Port forwarding was a nightmare. Today I returned the Cisco-Linksys [WAG160Nv2] modem/router hybrid and the excellent store, Dynabyte (they deserve some credit), allowed me to return it and I got myself a Sitecom instead (like before, but a more modern type this time) and it works like a charm!
Tidied up the rack some more. I only need to lay and tidy some FC cables, but those won't be for the VMS systems anyway. (Although I do have a DS2400 that I could hook up to the rx2600 with the ‘copper ethernet and FC combo’ adapter cards.) [/LIST]
Upcoming[LIST][*]The [FONT="Courier New"]SYSUAF[/FONT] database will be restored and preferably centralized, for cluster-wide user access.
[*]Registered (‘early access’) users will be able to login again, with the cluster up and running.
[*]Downtime ahead, due to patch installations and some other duties.
[*]Several Layered Products and other software will be added. Feel free to make requests, if there's something you'd love to use.
[*]Winnili.net website isn't done yet, but will be hosted on WASD or SWS (HP's VMS-customized Apache). I'm not sure yet which one, maybe a combination on different ports. [/LIST]
