It is nearly half month in January 2013 by now. Some of us may have set their new year's resolution and start working on it. Some of us may just got no resolution and move along with life as it brings them. Some of us may just puzzled and keep thinking 'what just happened?'.
For some of us that decided to move to new place, we have put up hopes and expectations that the new place will be 'better' than where we came from. If you have started facing the 'brown' grass in your new neighborhood instead of 'green', then keep working on your lawn and (hopefully) make it green one day.
However, if you just accept the brown grass and do nothing about it, by all means, please ask yourself what was your initial intention to move to that neighborhood in the first place. Did you plan to make a change in the new neighborhood and bring back the result 'home' (as in where you came from). Did you plan to just settle in the new neighborhood and just accept whatever comes in your new surrounding? Did you promise someone else that come along with you that the new neighborhood will be full of hope, joy, dream, or other things that sounded 'good'.
Ask yourself that question and if you haven't make any new year's resolution, how about using that answer and start working on that from this year onwards?
Hope your 2013 will be full of glory from your achievements, dreams, and goals!
I remember some time in the past that I need to look up information about Cisco.
If you are one of the Cisco veterans, you will remember some of Cisco's history about their product lines.
Happy end of January 2013 everyone!
Hope all of your doing in this first month of 2013 brings fruitful result for your future. If, you are still in progress of your work, then put a faith in yourself that it will bring good result for your future. Deal?
In the last couple of months, I have been involved in dealing with document works. Be it documenting stuff that I work on, or fixing someone else' documentation, or reviewing documents that has to be updated.
If you have ever toy around with your VMWare ESXi for quite a lot, you may have attempted to load custom driver or maybe fine tuning some kernel flags (I am yet to learn the last one).
I was eager to try hoking up the RAID drive from Promise over thunderbolt connected to Mac server running VMWare ESXi, but sadly only lspci is friendly enough to tell me that the disk is connected. Then what???
After some scouring, I found a link that suggested to load the network driver in order to get the thunderbolt connection recognized. Guess what happened? Not just the thunderbolt connection gone missing, the whole network stack refused to start. After some investigation, turned out the 'updated' network driver that I put in was older than the original one that came with ESXi 5.1.
What would you do? Honestly, I nearly forgotten of the 'rollback' feature from VMWare ESXi that was offered upon boot.
A simple hit on the keyboard to select the restore options and just agree to rollback 'permanently' brought back my Mac ESXi to the its folks (networked again!)
Have you ever been there? I bet you are!
