VSAT Problem

All day today tried to fix intermittent link problems in the office. The VSAT link keeps going up and down like a yoyo and I’m worried that it won’t be stable enough for AD replication.



All day today tried to fix intermittent link problems in the office.  The VSAT link keeps going up and down like a yoyo and I’m worried that it won’t be stable enough for AD replication.  Spent most of the day finishing building the servers and upgrading firmware and bios.

Looks like we are still drawing way, way too much current and we have decided to upgrade the 2.5mm electrical grid wiring to more robust 4mm cables.  Also the main fuse today shut off a number of times due to the amount of current we have been drawing.  At the moment the only thing we can do is reset it every time it trips.

On the health side of things I’m feeling a bit better – I hope it doesn’t hit me again in a few days time.
