The day has finally arrived when we get to swap out the piece of shit server (aka: BMW) for a new(er) one. On Sunday we synched 775,000 files with the new server, and the BMW shares points were disabled. So far, all embedded systems, users, and applications can access it correctly. (knock wood) Backups now occur at about 3 times the speed. The server reboots and services for Macintosh shares are available to our faithful Mac users in less than 30 minutes rather than 6 hours, give ‘er take. Production downtime, squashed. Backups and restores, fast. Parts available for server, yes. Life is good in the production world.
