I am using a QNAP TS-859U-RP NAS as the backup destination for my server. This NAS is running firmware version 4.2.6 (which is the most current firmware version for this model).

This NAS is used for about 90 minutes each day during the daily server backups.

I would like to find an automated way of setting this NAS to power on and power off at certain times each day so the backup jobs can be written to it and then when it is no longer needed the NAS will power off.

Is there any way of doing this?

My ISP is Comcast and I am assigned a range of 5 external IP addresses.

How can I determine which external IP address the SonicWALL VPN is using so that when I configure the VPN clients on Windows 10 computers I will put in the right external IP address?

The SonicWALL router is a TZ600.

What are the steps to lookup the SonicWALL VPN domain name?

This "domain name" can be different than the Active Directory domain name and needs to be entered within the SonicWALL NetExtender VPN connector. Where within the SonicWALL configuration settings can I look up the "domain name"?

Hi Experts,

we have to plan a big move to another building.
I have some questions about it.
Our datacenter is using RJ45 patch panels and cabling is done with CAT7

The new building has older technology installed and another patch system , called SYSTIMAX.
This SYSTIMAX patch system is new for all of us and the installed cables are all CAT6.

What kind of patch systems do you use in your datacenter ?
Do I have so many benefits with SYSTIMAX ?

CISCO 4321
I have connected to the cisco via putty and configured passwords, interface gigabiteither 0, and also 0/0/0. I can ping it on the management port and on 0/0/0, but I cannot access the gui via https://192.168.1.1.

This Guide does not tell much at all and I have not found much on google either. Can someone please point me in the right direction. This is router is not in production.

How can we use the secondary Citrix NetScaler Server, in an H.A. pair to safely test out new configurations before the same changes are propagated to the other NetScaler?

We have 2 x version 12.0 Citrix NetScaler Servers in our environment.  They both are setup for auto-sync and propagation by default; but according to websites:

- https://support.citrix.com/article/CTX124439 
- https://docs.citrix.com/zh-cn/netscaler/11/system/high-availability-introduction/configuring-command-propagation-high-availability.html

There are commands to that can be executed to turn the HA Sync and HA Propagation off and then back on later.  At my company we would like to test out a 2 factor authentication option (during a planned maintenance window) and see how that works before it is available for all of the users.  I am thinking of doing the following:

1.  Enable the 2 factor authentication settings on the Authentication server.
       a.  Whatever it may be, that is a separate topic from this question.

2.  Then after the Authentication server is ready, disable auto-sync and auto-propagation on the NetScaler HA-Pair.

3.  Then configure the secondary NetScaler to work with the 2nd factor Authentication server.
        a.  Then plan a maintenance window to temporarily make the secondary NetScaler Server into the new primary NetScaler Server.
        b.  When I fail over the primary server, the secondary server will then become the new 'primary' server …

Hi All,

I need some assistance setting up the below. I've got 3 "subnets" to set up internally. All must be able to reach the internet through the suppliers router.

The networks are 2x /26 and 1x /27. VLANS 601 & 603 are desktop pc's. VLAN 602 will be Cisco phones. 601 and 603 do not need any seperation, they're just to cover the seperate DHCP ranges. DHCP will be provided by an external source (hopefully) through a VPN setup on the ASA Firewall. I'm looking to setup outside interface, inside interface and access for all vlans.

Is anyone able to provide a sample config on how I could get this working?

Thanks,

Cisco ASA 5505 and I need to upgrade to latest IOS.  I upgraded it to 8.4(6) as several documents say is the interim step for anything later.  But I cannot find docs that reference the 5505 going further.  I see a lot of 5506-x references.  I see that htere is also a 8.4(7) as the latest in the 8.x series, but seem to remember putting 5505's at 9.1 and 9.2 in years past, but am not sure.  Can anyone tell me the latest version of IOS to put a 3 year old ASA 5505 at?

I have an APC SMT1500RM2U battery backup at my house that will intermittently beep for one minute every 12 hours.

I have checked the health of this Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS) and know what the problem is but won't be able to purchase replacement batteries for a little bit.

In the meantime is there any way I can disable or turn off this UPS's beeping sound so that it will stop waking me up in the middle of the night?

Hello EE,

I am trying to explain to management the need for a fire suppression system in the new data center.
I am being asked to provide a representative timeline and milestones to get a data center back up in the event of a fire.

Does anyone have a real life example as our options are:
1. fire suppression
2. enough bandwidth to mirror all sites to another site so could work remote via VPN (but the bandwidth for 1TB-2TB files can easily offset a fire suppression system cost)

hello experts
i have 3 SSID configured on an autonomous Cisco AP, all authenticate against ACS server, so three policy for each SSID, i did configured DNIS as *WIRELESS_SSID in "End Station Filter" but looks like it only works for WLC not autonomous AP, and seem Cisco autonomous AP not sending SSID info to ACS while the processing of authentication, my question is how to make Cisco autonomous AP to do this, i did try the following:
radius-server attribute 32 include-in-access-req format %h
radius-server attribute 30 original-called-number
radius-server vsa send authentication
but it doesn't help, please give me your suggestion.
thanks

What do you use when you need to run a cable through a wall or from the outside of a building to the inside of a building? I want to put in some kind of "grommet" just big enough to get one network cable (with ends) through. The walls will vary in thickness.

   My first thought was to put a short PVC pipe through the wall then find some kind of "flange" to put on both sides of the PVC pipe to hold it against the wall on either side. Surely there is something out there that is a "professional" way of getting a cable through a wall or from the outside of a building to the inside of a building. I just don't know what it is :)

Hi
I have installed several cat6 Ethernet cables around our office, nothing exceeding or anywhere near 20m
The devices, which are all 1Gbps capable, refuse to connect beyond 100Mbps
Could it be my RJ45 connectors or sockets that are of poor quality ?
thanks

We have a few Cisco 9300 PoE+ 48p switches distributed across a facility. We have many PoE devices that are working such as Mitel PoE phones and Aruba access points. However, we have a few devices that require PoE+ and they don't seem to be getting power. When I first started working on the issue I thought it might but just 2 devices so I set the power on the ports to the manufacture's specs. Now that I found that it is more I'd really like to see if I can figure out if it is a power negotiation issues. On the switch listed below is an example of one of them. You can see the static ports and then the other port that has the device but isn't providing power is Gi1/0/35.

We have a scheduled power outage in the small remote office.  Mostly network gear.  Few switches and firewalls.  No servers.
I know the UPS wouldn't be able to hold that long.  
What's should be the advised steps?   Shutdown the equipment prior to the outage and have someone onsite to startup after?  
How other folks doing it?  
Thanks in advance

I have a server with multiple virtual servers on it, was wondering is adding a network card with more ports will help for performance, since I use gigabit switches so the most throughput on the network is a gigabit how will I gain with a card with 4 ports each a gigabit if the switch highest capacity of the switch is a gigabit plus the switch is handling not only the server?

Any recommendation for a nic card and if not much more expensive can do nic teaming.

Hello - need ideas/options.  I have two large juniper 9000 switches to mount to 2-post racks.  Each switch is about 130lbs.  Is it possible to achieve that?
I know its possible to find shelves but not clear how to secure it.  Please advice if possible at all.
Thanks in advance.

This device cannot start. (Code 10)

The requested operation was unsuccessful.

can anyone please advice me?

I am about to set up a 4 mile wireless bridge.  The customer's inventory software provider says that the remote office must have at least 100mbps speed on the LAN, just as if the remote office staff were in the main office with their PCs cabled directly to their switch.  They don't need to know about WiFi performance in the office, but rather just the speeds between the PCs in the remote office and the server in the main office.  I need a recommendation for an app that is easy to use and addresses this need.  If it costs something that is fine.  TIA

What power parameters do I need to know before bringing the equipment into the server room?  Want to make sure I plug things in and not kick the breakers.
I'm bringing two large switches, two large firewalls, and UPS.
Do I need to ask electrician for watts available, or Amps, or VAC?
