I had a disk in one of my servers that was starting to give ATA errors in the syslog. Contrary to what you might think, ATA errors are fairly common, so I didn't immediately sound the alarm. However, this disk turned out to be corrupting data. During upgrading Debian 6 to 7, the file system became read-only. Rebooting gave me a recovery shell and e2fsck gave me millions of questions.

I needed to configure an Areca RAID array to find out it was password protected. I could unlock it with: MNO974315743924.

Note to self: explore FreeIPA. Someone on Serverfault suggested it and said it was what AD is for Windows. If it is, it would relieve me of LDAP hell. Too long for this blog post, but I spent about a week (or more) full-time to get an LDAP setup working, with all security measures in place. It involved diving into source code, discovering and reporting Ubuntu documentation bugs, etc. An experience I don't care to repeat.

I've had some issues with my Blackberry Enterprise Server. Some users say their mail is not synced. Others are reporting calendars being messed up. Just jotting down some memory aids.

A RAID controller hides the physical disks from the operating system, so it's harder to query the SMART data. Luckily, smartctl has a way to do it:

In an earlier post I made, I described how to manually create the SQL schema, because it didn't itself. When I installed Power DNS 3.1-4 on a Raspberry Pi, I noticed it had created the scheme itself this time. However, it did not make the foreign key constraints. This is dumb. I regularly need to remove domains from the DB and I don't want stale or incorrect references as a result.
