The 2015 CrossFit Open has come to an end and with it a milestone for me as well. For the last 6 months, I have been training hard to ensure a quality performance during the Open. I set out with one goal: not to get caught up on any movement. So how did I do?
I cannot remember the last time I burned a CD or DVD. I can remember the last time I attempted to create a bootable USB device from an ISO. Unfortunately, I have memories of wasting time creating bootable USB devices as well. In this post I will discuss how to use UNetbootin to make creating bootable USB devices easy.
I recently added another server into my home lab; it was a used Dell PowerEdge T620. As part of the process to get the new server online, I started by upgrading the firmware. Given this was a Dell server, I had a view options to upgrade the firmware:
Dell Repository Manager
Dell Server Update Utility (SUU)
Manually on the Dell drivers and downloads page
My preference is to use Dell Repository Manager because it makes it possible to download the smallest amount of data necessary to perform the upgrade. After upgrading the Dell Repository Manager software on my Windows 8 Fusion VM and downloading the firmware related to the T620, I attempted to burn an ISO. At the final step of the wizard, I was presented with an error that stated:
Bundle does not contain any components
The result was the inability to burn an ISO with the downloading firmware. What was going on and how can you fix it?
If you are upgrading or have upgraded to vSphere 6.0, you should be aware of a couple syslog gotchas. These will be especially important if you are running a central logging system like vRealize Log Insight. Read on to learn more.
I have heard of a few people who have restarted the Log Insight 2.5 virtual appliance and found that the Log Insight service failed to start with a Cassandra error stating it cannot connect. In this post, I would like to discuss how you can address the issue.
I am well on my way to achieving fitness for the second time. It has not been easy and I do not expect it to be easy going forward. Many people have asked me what my fitness routine has been during my second transformation and in this post I would like to discuss just that.
