Sorry today’s post is kind of random but today when the power went out it reminded me how much work is needed to bring my network backup to an operational level. With iSCSI initiators failing to connect because of a boot issue it made for an unhappy network server and staff. It also didn’t help that at the same time I needed to rebuild the RAID array.

Why do networks have to be so complex these days? They used to be a simple way to push files around the office and keep those people out of places they didn’t belong. Now we have NAS storage systems, VoIP phone networks, and on top of this security is even more evasive.

Well those are my random thoughts for the day and I wish instead of doing this work I could be playing in LightWave.
