Got lots of stuff fixed today.

Fixed NLB on the production servers that had been off since it all went pear shaped a couple of weeks ago. Just had to set the metrics on the second cards to be lower than the NLB cards. We've yet to discuss whether we'll try firewalling them again. And yay for a 7am start.

Fixed our software server which needed a keypress on reboot to get it to reboot. Found that two of the power supplies had gotten confused and thought they were offline. Reseating the power cables did nothing, but a cold hard boot fixed it. Also set it to recondition it's raid controller battery which had been giving me errors for, oh, a year and a half, and I hadn't gotten around to fixing it. Turns out to be literally a one-click operation.

Fixed OpenManage/Array Manager on another server that for some reason just wouldn't talk to the raid controller. There was a tricky fix involving a enableam=yes thingie on the installer msi file. Took a call to Dell for that one.

But this was all done by about 11, which left the rest of the afternoon with me wondering what to do. Well I was doing something, but it was taking a long time and I don't multitask very well - I have trouble concentrating on other things while I'm waiting for other things to finish. So I gave up at 3:30 and went shopping, only to find that the store I wanted to go to was all boarded up. *sigh*

Anyways. Early night methinks.
