Home Updates postponed

Well, it is 6:40pm...I just got home from fighting with the machine at work...and I don't feel like doing the updates I was planning to do tonight.

Perhaps tomorrow things will go better with the machine at work, and I won't be so drained. Otherwise I'll probably just leave it all until the weekend.

I have a phone interview Friday at 5pm, so probably won't be feeling like mucking about after that....

Today is upgrade day.

For some reason today is the day.

At work, I'm upgrading an IBM pSeries Server (model 615 6E3) to be a dual boot AIX 5.2 and AIX 5.3 QA machine.

The machine was originally delivered with a pair of 36GB drives, one as rootvg and the other as vg00. A 73GB drive was ordered for it, and moved vg00 over to this drive (extendvg->migratepv->reducevg)...so that the old 36GB drive would become the AIX 5.3 disk.

Used alt_disk_install to clone the rootvg to hdisk1 and next is to upgrade that system to 5.3. Wrote a pair of scripts so switching between the two will be braindead easy....once somebody cracks the root password (actually, I've already given it out...) I thought about sudo, but that's too much work and once I'm gone...there'll be no more control on who has the root password, etc.

Problem right now is that the attention light comes on everything the machine is booted, it is reporting a scsi bus problem. Since the only change was the 73GB drive, it is suspect.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
