Still not done new web server
I started building a VMware Server host for the new web server mentioned previously last week. The VM host is just running OpenSUSE 10.2, because it’s temporary. The VM for the web server will be SLES9, our current standard platform. I started that today. It’s mostly built, but it needs some tlc, patching and configuration before it’s ready.
A whole bunch of other crap is occupying my time now too. We’re getting ready for our switchover to Deltek Vision, and I have to build some VMs with w2k3 server and SQL Server 2000, that we will use to convert our data from CFMS to Vision. We need a few of those. Luckily I can build one and clone it.
I have a new workstation on the way, and according to our vendor, it should be here Friday. It’s a Sun Ultra 20 M2, and I can’t wait to get it.
I was having inexplicable problems with OpenSUSE 10.2 64-bit version on my present desktop, so I backed it up to the thumper box with rsync and rebuilt it in 32-bit mode today. So far so good.
