svnrdump for dumping and loading remote svn repositories – twm’s blog

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/05/31

One day I will likely need svnrdump:

Since I keep forgetting what the tool is called and how to use it: svnrdump is a tool that can dump a remote svn repostory to a text file and also load that text file into a different remote svn repository…

Determining the ESXi installation type (2014558) | VMware KB

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/05/31

Via [WayBackDetermining the ESXi installation type (2014558) | VMware KB

# esxcfg-info -e
boot type: visor-usb

That’s on my X10SRH-CF system which runs from USB.

Values you can get:

  • visor-pxe indicates a PXE deployment
  • visor-thin indicates an installable deployment
  • visor-usb indicates an embedded deployment

If your installation is visor-thin based (running from hard-disk), then you can convert it to visor-usb; the steps are at [WayBackvisor-thin & vsantraces – (in French, but Google Translate is quite OK). It skips a few of the steps mentioned in [WayBack] How To Backup & Restore Free ESXi Host Configuration | virtuallyGhetto, so for saving your current config it’s best to follow these steps:

  1. Shutdown or suspend all VMs
  2. vim-cmd hostsvc/firmware/sync_config
  3. vim-cmd hostsvc/firmware/backup_config
  4. Copy the generated backup from /scratch/downloads (a UUID directory under it)to a safe location
  5. vim-cmd hostsvc/maintenance_mode_enter
  6. shutdown
  7. Install the same ESXi version on a USB disk
  8. Boot from the USB disk
  9. copy the backup to /tmp/configBundle.tgz
  10. vim-cmd hostsvc/firmware/restore_config /tmp/configBundle.tgz
  11. reboot

how to install OS remotly using Supermicro IPMI? – Server Fault

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/05/31

I wasn’t aware that IPMI more recent than 3.3 also supports virtual media, but in retrospect it’s very logical it does. When managing remote machines, you don’t walk up to it to switch physical media (:

Worked splendid on my X10SRH-CF based server, and even supports SMB based network shares.

The how-to is very simple, steps are for instance at these links:

Note: the for IPMI mounted ISO images, I found out that they will not work in UEFI mode and that you have to switch your BIOS back to LEGACY boot mode:

Boek met tips voor ouders en broers/zussen die behandelbeslissingen moeten nemen voor een verstandelijk beperkt persoon

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/05/31

Ook voor brussen (boers/zussen):

De meeste ouders van een kind met een verstandelijke of meervoudige beperking komen meer dan eens voor een medische beslissing te staan voor hun kind. Wat kan en mag je als ouder/verzorger? Wat kan en mag een arts? Hoe ga je samen in gesprek en wat zegt de wet hierover? Hierover gaat het boek “Als je niet zelf kan beslissen”.
