#introduction Hello! I'm Hamzah. I'm a #linux engineer at a large video games company in #London.
I consider myself a hardcore geek, but these days most of my time is taken up by my son and wife. While I don't really consider myself much of a gamer, I do love the #FinalFantasy series.
I'm very interested in automation, and have a small addiction to #ansible, #kubernetes and home-assistant.io.
I have backups of everything, except my kubernetes master itself.
I mean, it's not too difficult to rebuild the master, but it would mean basically rebuilding the cluster as all the certificates etc will need to be changed and everything re-deployed.
I tried dd'ing the failed disks to known working disks and hoping that I can bring the array back up that way, but that didn't work either.
Not having a good day today.
Woke up this morning with my lower back aching and feeling stiff.
Then when I switched on my laptop and got ready for work, I noticed two disks had died in one of my home servers (which runs my kubernetes master VM). It's a RAID10 array, and just my luck both of the dead disks were from the same mirror so it's basically screwed.
Looks like we are going back into lockdown in the #UK.
Watching #UFC254 for the hundreth time today. I'm a huge Khabib fan, but Justin Gaethje is such a cool and classy guy.
Man, sometimes it's so frustrating dealing with datacenter people.
I can't access the Supermicro BMC of a server because their firewall is restricting access to port 443, 5900, and 5901 but they keep blaming it on java.
I completely get that Java can be problematic on older BMCs, but if I can't even reach the required ports, then it's not a java problem! 😡
Ahhhh so excited!!!! #ufc254
So excited for #ufc254. It's all I've been thinking about all week 🤣
