Re: B2 + B3

Bloody hell, how's that for memory... not bad given how many years its been running with a few crc errors and no re-formatting. Capacity? A bit more than 3T! :-) @Cheeseboy, I like the photo, glad you reinstated it. Looks neat, especially compared to my first computer which was a homebuild (Nascom I...

Re: Do the e-SATA ports support Port Multiplier?

Hi there! Same question again but this time for the B3. Bengt A couple of weeks ago I remember seeing a post including some photos of a b3 setup somewhere on this forum and it included a port multiplier of some kind. Not sure if it was USB or eSATA, b2 or b3 but searching the forums might find it. ...

Suddenly I get "Server refused to allocate pty"

A few days ago I set up passwordless ssh on a very clean b3 install. It was working from Windows (PuTTY & Command Prompt) and a Linux PC. Last night my Windows machine rebooted (thank you Windows Update) killing two or three b3 console sessions. When I tried to ssh back in using PuTTY I couldn't usi...

Re: OpenProducts to take over Excito B3 product line

Tor, thanks for responding. Your answers are encouraging. A quick comment on the forum and search indexing as I do SEO for a living - don't allow duplication of content as this is a big no no for Google and will be penalised. Do create a copy and set up redirects (301). This will preserve the Google...

Re: Add console serial port on external 3.5 mm jack

I need to do this on a Bubba|TWO but can't find the PCB layout plus serial connection details that correspond to this unit (only for Bubba Server and B3). Please can you tell me what to connect where or point me to the relevant post/wiki. My Bubba|TWO PCB has RD1 / 2008 screen printed on it, but a w...

Re: B3 RAID recovery progress

Not sure, i think the lights are a little different in rescue mode. Much more important is whether you can ssh into one of the nics right? Well I did try the network but no sign of b3 connecting to my router, no resolution of b3, no SSH. My guess is that on boot it should change LED colour, but I'v...

Re: B3 RAID recovery progress

Not looking good. I made the USB (edited bubba.cfg to not install) and b3 booted to green light, but has been sitting link this for forty minutes. Even an install is supposed to last only 15 minutes. So does boot from USB go from green to blue when booted? ... and how long should it take? And what m...

nobody - you are misrepresent me in your last post. I'm grateful for your help, but you dwarfed that part of your response when you introduced a different thread which you characterised as a "rant". I didn't want others to come in responding to that, when I need help with what is this important prob...

Re: B3 RAID recovery progress

Assuming your first priority is to get access to data stored on the B3, you can access the B3 using a recovery USB disk. Thanks. /home isn't that high a priority - I have alternatives. In fact, the most critical data on it is backup of b3 system config files, because that will help me restore a wor...

Re: B3 RAID recovery progress

If you have access to the SSH shell please show the content of /proc/mdstat I'm afraid its all gone horribly wrong. Next morning I had red light on B3 and very slow/broken web i/f. SSH still worked with periods of delayed response to commands. Lots of network errors in syslog (e.g. "error on subcon...

B3 RAID recovery progress

The RAID recovery progress is, like so many other progress indicators, no more than an indicator that it hasn't finished yet. Mine has been running for a few hours and shows: Recovering RAID array '/dev/md0'. Current recover progress is 100% and is estimated to finish in 2360 hours 46 minutes. It ha...

Re: Building Zabbix for b2

I set Zabbix on my b3 up a while ago and had it monitoring some websites and test monitoring some of my local network. I gather it is very capable, but it is a nightmare trying to understand how to configure. Not for the faint hearted! Sounds like you are well acquanted with this kind of stuff. Good...
