Omnitech News Service

According to a U.S. District Court Judge in Oregon, Honorable Marco A. Hernandez, `press`, in context of the First Amendment to the US Constitution, specifically means persons `affiliated with any newspaper, magazine, periodical, book, pamphlet, news service, wire service, news or feature syndicate, broadcast station or network, or cable television system.` Online journalism is now legally excluded unless affiliated with an entity of one or more of those types.

As such, be it known that all of my communication via any online forum is formally a media for communication to the public as an agent of the `OmniTech News Service`. This service will include fact, fiction, assumptions, satire, and any other form of communication deemed appropriate by the staff.

Remnants of MaxG.Org, plus ZOOM’s Pi song, which was cut out of a ZAP parody, without the cussing, womanizing rap they threw in the middle of theirs.

Broken domains

* uppercasepublishing.com has the wrong name servers and the owner never responded to requests to update this.
* greyhaven.net has the wrong name servers and the owner never responded to requests to update this. The prior owner was interested in having it rehosted at his other site should the current owner become reachable.

Expiring and code broken:
* bc93.org is expiring in 5 months. Everyone moved to Facebook. The PHPBB was broken. Lack of interest, the domain will be allowed to expire.
* realjosh.com will expire in 4 months. It is a redirect to webgravy.net now. The domain will be allowed to expire.
* ymsparents.com has broken code and had low interest. It was replaced by a default gallery install. It expires in 7 months. It’s fate is unknown but may be allowed to expire.
* webgravy.net serves no real purpose and will be allowed to expire in 2 months. Everything on it has been moved to omnitech.net.

WE’VE MOVED!

Omnitech.net has finished it’s migration to dreamhost.

If you have an account, and haven’t seen my email, then contact me (omnimax at omnitech dawt knet) to find out your new login credentials.

Some domains are still spotty due to failure on my part to update whois promptly when the ethernet switch at the old office silently died.

Everything that was working should be working in the same manner by Tuesday around lunchtime (DNS propagation delays).

If you have problems with your site, let me know. Some files might have been lost, but I used rsync and waited for successful complete, so it’s more likely that the .htaccess is wrong, or something little like that.

Thanks!

-Josh

HSCLA27C The operation to get the physical device location for adapter U9117.MMA.10XXX64-V2-C40 on the virtual I/O server partition viod has failed.

NOTE: All LPARs on this system get the same failure for their NPIV interface that maps to physical fcs0

Errpt shows FCP_ERR10 on fscsi3 on both during the cfgmgr, but nothing on fcs0.

fcs0 and fscsi0 look fine from lscfg, lsattr… they’re logged in to the switch and everything.

There’s only vscsi mapped LUNs – nothing mapping directly through the NPIV yet. The vscsi mapped LUNs have happy, enabled paths on fscsi0.

cfgmgr on VIOS and VIOC doesn’t seem to have any effect.

ioscli lsnports shows both fcs0 and fcs2 are available.

My initial guess is that cables were unplugged, and some odd state was entered.

Remapping NPIV didn’t work.

Tried rebooting VIO server and digging into SAN switches.

I had to manually create the unique_id fields with odmadd. My new, VIO clone makes them, as do my new NPIV clients, but my older VIO servers do not make them.

To find the unique_id:
odmget -q attribute=unique_id CuAt

I think it’s a problem with the EMC.Symmetrix.aix.rte and fcp.rte, or maybe the ODM entries. The new systems that work had 5.4.0.4 reinstalled during migration and upgrade. I’m hesitant to do that on the older, running systems for fear of existing LUNs being broken.

Since I’m eventually migrating off of these 2 frames, here’s my temporary (4 years now) fix:
Uncomment the portions you need at any given time:

SYMSER=`XXXX`   # The last 4 digits of the symmetrix serial number
SYMID=`YY`      # The 2 digits prepended to each volume from inq
echo `hdiskpower10	lp9_sap_vts23
hdiskpower19	lp9_sap_vts24
hdiskpower20	lp9_sap_vts25` | while read disk vts ; do
### Removal of disks
#DISKS=''
#   for j in powermt display dev=$disk 2>&1 | grep fscsi ; do
#		if [[ -n echo ${j} | grep hdisk 2>&1  ]] ; then DISKS=`$DISKS $j` ; fi
#   done
#echo $disk $DISKS $vts
#for i in $vts $disk $DISKS ; do rmdev -dl $i ; done
### Removal of just the VTD
#rmdev -dl $vts
### Make unique_id fields where missing (older VIO servers)
#ID=powermt display dev=$disk | grep `Logical device ID` | cut -f 2 -d =
#echo `CuAt:
#       name = `${disk}`
#        attribute = `unique_id`
#        value = `$SYMSER$SYMID${ID}09SYMMETRIX03EMCfcp`
#        type = `R`
#        generic = ``
#        rep = `nl`
#        nls_index = 124
#` >> uniques.out
### Make a new PV out of the disk
#dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/$disk bs=256k count=1
#chdev -a pv=yes -l $disk
#mkdev -l $disk
#lspv | grep $disk
### Make a new VTD
#ioscli mkvdev -dev $vts -vadapter vhost6 -vdev $disk
done
### verify unique_id file, then add it into the running config
#odmadd < uniques.out
### Remake any removed devices - Remember to reset no_reserve as above.

It SEEMS to be related to the AC inside and outside units kicking on at the same time. Still testing.
