Dell R320 idrac7 throwing up HTTP 404 errors

Hi! So for whatever reason my R320 was throwing up HTTP 404 errors everywhere, like this:

I am using IE 11.248 to access, running version Version 1.45.45 of the idrac controller. What I had to do to resolve this was to open up IE, click the tool wheel on the top right, and go to compatibility view settings. Then add the IP address of my server here, and it allowed me to access it, and the HTTP 404 errors went away.

Hopefully this helps someone!

423 locked file when trying to update in owncloud

Client = windows 10 64bit, running 2.4.0 owncloud client.
Server = Cent OS 7 running owncloud 10.4.0 server

When I deleted a file in the sync directory, it is throwing an error on the client:

2/3/2018 9:24:58 PM,tools-keys-etc/software/CISCO VPN/vpnclient-winx64-msi-5.0.07.0290-k9.exe,E:\DUDES\backups-resume-drivers,Server replied “423 Locked” to “DELETE https://chi.swamp.xyz/owncloud/remote.php/dav/files/vivithemage/backups-resume-drivers/tools-keys-etc/software/CISCO VPN/vpnclient-winx64-msi-5.0.07.0290-k9.exe”

Everything else is going fine. I also noticed though, that I deleted a directory on the client, and it would not sync, also threw an error, but I ignored it, and just removed it from syncing in the interface.

I do have encryption on the server enabled, for whatever that’s worth. I also have been using this instance since 7.x I think, before the merger, and beyond, haha. It’s worked great up to this point.

Looks like my cron jobs may have never ran. So I ran it manually.

I dumped myself into the apache user:

su -s /bin/bash apache

then ran the cron job script, which took about 30 minutes or so.

php -f /var/www/html/owncloud/cron.php

I then added it to crontab for apache:

crontab -e -u apache
*/15 * * * * php -f /var/www/html/owncloud/cron.php

Ever want to bring up windows explorer from command prompt?

It’s super simple actually, just type “start .” without quotes. That will bring up the current directory in windows explorer. If you want to bring up another directory outside of the one you are in, just type “start C:\users\” as an example. If you want a network share: “start \\10.10.10.33\share\” and hit enter.

Easy 🙂

FDT 1080P HD FD8901 Review vs Motorola baby monitor

I purchased two of these guys for my two lil kiddos, as the second came, I did not want to pay $100+ for another camera in my Motorola baby cam setup.

What I like:
Picture quality is great
local recording on movement works great
360 degree angles are awesome
Night version works great
movement + audio alarms work great using Tinycam pro

I have a few issues:
The web app for moving the camera does not work well at all.
I cannot get two way working, even in the tinycam pro app.
I wish it had 5ghz, 2.4ghz is pretty saturated, and N just isn’t that fast.

I still prefer it over my Motorola baby monitor, much more versatile, and quality picture. I bought a Amazon Fire to use as a 24/7 baby cam, and it works great. It will vibrate on movement/noise.

I also have all traffic blocked going out to the internet, and coming in. I do have DNS and NTP protocols open to keep the time in sync on my firewall. Because of this though, I am also logging ANY traffic the FDT tries to reach out with, and so far they have not tried reaching out, it has been about 4 months too. I was slightly worried with all of the Chinese cameras that have been known to reach out and call home.

Creating firewall rules for pfsense to block cameras from going out

I installed pfSense 2.4.1, to replace my Asus AC68U as my router, and purchased an Ubiquiti UAP-AC-PRO for my wireless. So far so good, but I had one thing I REALLY wanted done with this new firewall, that my old one could not, and that was properly blocking all traffic going OUT, except NTP, and DNS to resolve those NTP entries. So my set up was as follows:

If you want me to get into each of the rules, let me know and I can. It works great, as I can see it allowing the NTP and DNS entries. This works best if your DNS server is your router/gateway. If it is not, you will have to substitute in what your DNS servers are. I am waiting for something to call home, so I can then report that to FDT, my camera manufacturer, and ask them WHY is it calling home?!

Having issues with pfsense booting or crashing on ESX 6.5?

I had just installed a fresh copy of pfsense on my HP GEN8 Microserver, and noticed it would not like booting up, sometimes. So I ended up removing the USB SATA controller, and that resolved it. Why? I am not sure…I remember reading that someone else had a similar issue before as well.

vmware upgrade 6.5 alerted for removal of VIBS

I had ran this command:
esxcli software profile install -p ESXi-6.5.0-20171004001-standard -d https://hostupdate.vmware.com/software/VUM/PRODU
to upgrade to the latest version of 6.5 vmware ESXi and I got this message:

[Exception]
You attempted to install an image profile which would have resulted in the removal of VIBs [‘HPE_bootbank_hpe-cru_650.6.5.8.24-1.4240417’, ‘HPE_bootbank_hponcfg_6.0.0.4.4-2.4.2494585’, ‘HPE_bootbank_scsi-hpvsa_5.5.0.102-1OEM.550.0.0.1331820’, ‘HPE_bootbank_hpe-esxi-fc-enablement_650.2.6.10-4240417’, ‘HPE_bootbank_hptestevent_6.0.0.01-01.00.5.2494585’, ‘HPE_bootbank_hpe-ilo_650.10.0.1-24.4240417’, ‘HPE_bootbank_ssacli_2.65.7.0-6.5.0.4240417’, ‘HPE_bootbank_hpbootcfg_6.0.0.02-02.00.6.2494585’, ‘HPE_bootbank_hpe-smx-provider_650.03.11.00.17-4240417’, ‘HPE_bootbank_amshelper_650.10.6.0-24.4240417’, ‘HPE_bootbank_conrep_6.0.0.01-02.00.1.2494585’]. If this is not what you intended, you may use the esxcli software profile update command to preserve the VIBs above. If this is what you intended, please use the –ok-to-remove option to explicitly allow the removal.
Please refer to the log file for more details.

I wanted to keep those VIBs because I know there were no upgrades for HP on them, so I ran an update command instead:

esxcli software profile install -p ESXi-6.5.0-20171004001-standard -d https://hostupdate.vmware.com/software/VUM/PRODU

vmware 6.5 upgrade failed with no space left on device

I was running the upgrade on my HP microserver Gen 8 ESXi host, and it threw an error:

[root@esx1:~] esxcli software profile update -p ESXi-6.5.0-20171004001-standard -d https://hostupdate.vmware.com/software/VUM/PRODU

I ended up having to install the locker tool first:

cd /tmp
wget http://hostupdate.vmware.com/software/VUM/PRODUCTION/main/esx/vmw/vib20/tools-light/VMware_locker_tools-light_6.5.0-0.23.5969300.vib
esxcli software vib install -f -v /tmp/VMware_locker_tools-light_6.5.0-0.23.5969300.vib

Then I ran the update, and it worked perfect!

Where did vivi go?!

Hi!

Sorry, been super swamped, haven’t posted a lot, if at all this year! I have been playing a lot of video games though, if you want to check out some of my highlights, I post on my youtube channel:

I know most of my viewership comes from random issues being googled, and resolved here, so i’ll try getting back to that when I can!
