"Logical drive not on preferred path." The bane of my existence. Screw iSCSI and the badly designed horse it rode in on. From now on, this little mouse is using all NFS, all the time.

It won't budge.

Seriously, it is not going to move an inch. 

> take SCSI 

You try, but it won't move. 

> take SCSI 

It moves a little! 

> take SCSI 

SCSI: taken.

hm, I know people who have watchdogs to kill boxes with dead nfs filesystems by doing stonis: push the reset switch. ymmv? ;-)

"Dead NFS" means you're not using NetApp. From now on I will be using NetApp.
It Just Works.

NetApp.

Until you build huge NFS exports that hold millions of files, and then one "ls" causes the entire NetApp cache to be flushed in order to load all that other crap, causing every other system connected to every other share to timeout and throw errors.

I don't use NetApp to export millions of files. I use them to export virtual disks in a VMware environment. And in that setting it's far more reliable than EMC (I spit upon them), IBM (I want to kill whoever designed their storage), or HP (anyone who even thinks of using that crap should have their head examined).

NetApp is only more expensive if you don't take into account the losses in productivity and, for a service provider, revenue, that will occur when the EMC/IBM/HP fails. I've had all of them fail in unacceptably stupid ways.
Only NetApp has been a shining star of performance and reliability in my data center.

I've gotten better reliability from OpenFiler than from those other guys.
And yes, I proudly use it as my lower tier storage on projects that don't have budget for top shelf stuff.

Fair enough.  I was coming at it from the angle of do it yourself vs DIY (boat I am in).  I run libvirt / kvm and wanted honest feeback on good backends that could take it, and I might just give them a try (if we ever get the budget) ....  Thanks IG.

heh, I just confirmed that the case I mentioned actualy uses a NetApp.

That's good. The last place I worked at doesn't do so, anymore, either, after they kept causing timeouts for various production NFS clients. LOL

The modern data center shouldn't really be employing uber-gigantic file servers anyway. Virtualization means you can segment your workloads without having to deploy a lot of discrete servers.

I've got file servers that are virtual machines whose virtual disks reside on a NetApp. It sounds stupid until you get to the point where you understand that the NetApp never has to interact directly with a user. This is good because users are morons.

Subject: Thunderbird: Systemwide extension installation

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

What do I need to do in order to install a Thunderbird plugin/addon/extension systemwide under windows?!

I found out that I need to unzip the xpi in the c:\Programblah\Thunderbird\extenstions directory and rename that unpacked xpi to match the installed extention id. (Which is to be found in the unpacked dir under install.rdf or something like that.)

This method still annoys the user with a "Something wants you to install Lightning, do you agree?!" which scares the shit out of any normal user, since they are conditioned not to click stuff they do not understand. (Oddly, this only works in the cases were you actually want them to install something! They always click the adware, never the good stuff!)

So, why is the Test Pilot that now ships with recent TB's preinstalled and activated for every single user without even asking?

How do I install a spellchecking dictionary systemwide?

And yes I have read the mozilla wiki article about that, it is crap. Also, people in the #thunderbird channel on their server came as far as I did, but nobody was able to help me any further.

The only suggestions I can think of would be to take a snapshot of Thunderbird's directory tree before and after clicking on the yes to install. That might help pinpoint which file(s) got changed.

You might also want to try something like regmon to track changes to the registry. That might give you a clue if Thunderbird is storing something there.

Thanks Spell.

Yes, I fear I have to get my hands that dirty. I thought somebody else here had this issue before. I'll report back what I find.
