Rather than running cacti, I put forward using plain old mrtg as impementing scripts will be easier and lighter, as well as making changes/updates;

-- create core mrtg.cfg --
do for each hdd on core (or mount points) from database - insert basic template filling details.
do for each NIC on core in database - insert basic template filling details.
Insert standard free memory template
Insert standard process template

--Create MD mrtg.cfg's --
do for each MD in database
   do for each hdd in current MD - insert basic template filling details.
   do for each NIC in current MD - insert basic template filling details.
   Insert standard free memory template
   Insert standard process template
 As long as mrtg is installed on all MD's the script just has to create and place/replace the mrtg.cfg on each MD (/usr/pluto/diskless/<md#>/etc/mrtg.cfg
 You just have to create an appropriate place on the core that is mounted on all MD's to store the image and html files; /home/public/data/mrtg ?

I have the log from last Friday and you can see that at 11pm it turns off 2 MD's, the friday tick box is unticked in the timed event.

Yeah I checked out the webadmin php code and found that too. Deleted existing, and recreated to see if it still occures. If it does I'm guessing its a bug?

Hi All,

I have had a timed event setup for awhile, it's setup to turn off MD's during the week but not on Friday and Saturday.
Sometimes it turns off on Friday and saturday nights. Are the settings saved as a cron job or similar that I can check?

Excellent News, and huge thanks to ALL who have helped :-)

On another note, I'm guessing mirror server is getting hammered with people downloading the new ISO, I'm giving it another go because it got to 2.8GB and stopped, perhaps a torrent might be a better way to share the load? I also have some space on my hosted server to act as a mirror if interested?

Oh, and I'm running 10.04 on the core so I guess this doesn't effect me at the moment, accept minor non-OS dependant fix's that may filter through (scripts, etc..)?

I've had similar problem, turned out the appropriate fonts weren't installed, mayde check those have been installed? I think it was a package with ms-ttf in it..

The failure to mount our file system relates to an entry in your PXE cfg's, example:
cat /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/01-00-19-d1-86-3d-93
APPEND initrd=139/initrd.img ramdisk=10240 rw root=/dev/nfs boot=nfs nfsroot=

Which again is an nfs mount point, which again should bring you back to the post I did earlier.

Check to make sure nfs daemon is running: /etc/init.d/nfs-kernel-server start - check the logs for any errors

I'd be checking '/etc/exports' for:
## BEGIN : DisklessMDRoots

If you need to make changes try 'exportfs -a -v' before trying to boot your MD's

Check the file '/etc/fstab' on each orbiter: 'cat /usr/pluto/diskless/<MD#>/etc/fstab'
Look for something similar to the following:
...     /        nfs intr,nolock,udp,rsize=32768,wsize=32768,retrans=10,timeo=50 1 1

Tell us how you went?

Hi All,

LONG story short, needed to migrate 4x1TB soft raid to 4x2TB soft raid and I wasn't able to all 8 plus OS drive in the server. After looking for a few bootable live CD's, and NAS distro's to try to get the old RAID back up and running to transfer the data to the new raid. Finally had a 'DERRRR' moment and PXE booted a PC as an MD and set the old raid up to migrate the data back to the server. So, Just an idea, but maybe it would be a good idea to have options when creating a new MD; eg: What do you want this PC to be? NAS, Squeeze-Slave pc, etc.. and then just run the appropriate script and extract the base image to the created diskless dir.

If you change your dial patterns in Freepbx.
   _9011.          matches any string of at least five characters that starts with 9011,
                      but it does not match the four-character string 9011 itself.

All working no, and anyone else wants to use a thinclient or old x86 as a fake cheep squeeze box check out this for more info:

Ignore this post, all done - at least in VMWARE.
1. Download dsl-4.4.10.iso
2. Download
3. Get the binary above to auto start: "squeezeslave -r5"
4. Get the MAC address of the device your going to install it on to and create the squeezeslave device and enter the MAC there. At the moment I'm using the IP and MAC, not sure if you can get away with just the MAC address.

I haven't tried controlling from an orbiter yet due to people watching TV and I need a restart :-| The SqueezeCenter web interface works fine.

OK new alternative, DSL running Squeezeslave, will yet you all know how it goes.

Hi All,

I have been reading around this weekend and have been looking into using my thinclients as headless audio devices. I have been able to get them to PXE boot as MD's ( although there is a noticeable delay when starting songs, etc.. So my options so far have been:

1. squeezeos x86 install: cant successfully compile for anything other than arm processors; bootcdx86 = Fails, qemux86 = Fails. requires a lot more time investment to get them to work.
2. android x86 installed with squeeze player app installed - havent given it much thought, although in order to get squeeze app installed requires market to be installed. etc...

Anywho... anyone have any ideas to make use of them as light weight audio players that will be more responsive and compatible with linuxmce 10.04?

Adding the "PK_EventHandler" criteria, as I suspect is what you did, does not work as you want it to.

There is no way to check the status of devices (lights on/off, media playing/not playing etc) within the event criteria, so I don't think its possible to set up the event the way you want.

I'm not sure how the timed event got there, but I have an event called "Watching - Home Theater"
PK_EventHandler Event parameter:PK_Room = Home Theater
I havent tried using it, so I'm guessing it's a lost cause? Isn't there a way to poll Xine_plugin to get filename or format etc?
