Jason Adams:@Dennis - yes we do. much more user friendly.

Alexander Nimmannit (@alexanderjn):mp4 skipped a few times or was paused, not sure

@wonder_nerd:my end was fine except while I was turning down the volume in chat
Garcia:do participants get the ability to share stuff as well
virtualTodd:Can anybody share stuff?
Dell-LanceB:@virtualTodd - only for the presenters
Dennis Smith:just the hosts for now
Jeffrey Sullivan:Hey Dennis, just got a DM from Sixth saying he can't get it
Dennis Smith:Give me one second guys...checking on a participant issue
Jeffrey Sullivan:user limit exceeded
virtualTodd:Prob a good idea to keep us in line that way :)
Jeffrey Sullivan:cut off at 15?
HansDeLeenheer:the SMB chat :-)
Garcia:i show 10
Garcia:or does it include host iinto the total
Jeffrey Sullivan:hosts I'm betting
Bruno Sousa:hello hello !
Jeffrey Sullivan:Hey Bruno!
KongYang:Dropping to allow more attendees.. looking over D's shoulder
Jason Adams:max attendees should be 100
Dennis Smith:we are running a trial version, but i didn't think there was a limit
Steve Huemann:So what's the view from the "hosting" side of this chat platform? (as positive from the hosts perspective?)
Jeffrey Sullivan:I'm liking it.
Bruno Sousa:Hi Jejjfrey and Dennis
Dennis Smith:Hey Bruno!
Peter Tsai:I got the user limit exceeded message as well
Bruno Sousa:damn keyboard
Bruno Sousa:Jeffrey sorry for the typo
Peter Tsai:when I tried getting in as a guest... then I signed in using my ID
Michaeld:I was getting the user limit too
Peter Tsai:not sure if that had anything to do with it
Alexander Nimmannit (@alexanderjn):Would be nice if users could resize their own windows
Bruno Sousa:Question > there''s no sound, right ?
Dennis Smith:Sound is muted
Bruno Sousa:right...just to check if everything was working or if was again being blocked :)
Bruno Sousa:Hey Hans !
HansDeLeenheer:you want us to sing Portugase Anthem?
Bruno Sousa:Hans...please don't :)
Bruno Sousa:don't ruin a perfect good Anthem
Bruno Sousa:Great thing you guys have with this RockStar effort
Dennis Smith:Ok, not sure what's up with the user limit...I thought we had the trial for the 100 users..guess not
Jeffrey Sullivan:Thanks, more to come on that. :)
Steve Huemann:play the video again...
Bruno Sousa:my congrats to all of Dell folks and to all the community members
Dennis Smith:the networking video?
Steve Huemann:missed it earlier
Jason Adams:Video running fine here.
HansDeLeenheer:running in chunks of 5 seconds
virtualTodd:Video looks good to me too
Bruno Sousa:not running that well herer...
Peter Tsai:I hear clicky clicky and the video is not moving
Bruno Sousa:US-Europe latency baby !
Bruno Sousa:post it to youtube
Steve Huemann:works here in Austin
Dennis Smith:wonder what the screen sharing looks like
Bruno Sousa:they have a decent CDN solution :)
HansDeLeenheer:ooh, is it on an active/active cluster with a hell of a round trip latency?
Jason Adams:@Dennis - screen sharing is mostly what we use this for with clients and consultants. Works great.
Dennis Smith:let me share a remote desktop....going to switch views real quick
Bruno Sousa:screen sharing usually sucks big time for multimedia content
Jason Adams:@Steve - Fort Worth here.
Bruno Sousa:but who knows
Bruno Sousa:just try it out
Steve Huemann:this should be interesting
Dennis Smith:you guys see that ok?
Jason Adams:Desktop showing here
Bruno Sousa:well...small letters
Lee4Dell:see it fine here
HansDeLeenheer:that actually runs smooth enough
Steve Huemann:even my typeling is slowing down
Michaeld:Yeah, not much lag
Garcia:looks good here
Emptyone:Looking good here
Steve Huemann:pretty though
Bruno Sousa:i need to be honest
Alexander Nimmannit (@alexanderjn):uh oh, multi bit memory errors!
Steve Huemann:screen sharing definately getting priority
Dennis Smith:haha, pay no attention to the errors
Bruno Sousa:the size of the font is small as heck
Dennis Smith:it's a lab :)
Garcia:loooks better when i did the full screen button on the top right
Peter Tsai:looks fluid on my end
Alexander Nimmannit (@alexanderjn):you can use the zoom in feature
Bruno Sousa:oh yeah..fluid by design :)
Steve Huemann:red text ?
Dennis Smith:I also like the in chat polls on the right...
Bruno Sousa:the adobe solution is not bad..
Dennis Smith:we have 3 of the ready...OpenManage is the 2nd
Bruno Sousa:but i have been used better ones
Peter Tsai:did I mention that this chat engine is giving me the Power To Do More?
Bruno Sousa:Peter : you know all the key statements from a PR ...awesome :)
Michaeld:did marketing abduct Peter?
Jeffrey Sullivan:no kidding.
Jeffrey Sullivan:its an impersonator
Peter Tsai:pay no attention to the marketer behind the curtain
Dennis Smith:Other than the user limit issue...i think I really like it
Dennis Smith:but it should be 100 users not 15
Peter Tsai:the polls are really cool
Jason Adams:@Dennis - 15 is probably a demo issue as it should be 100.
HansDeLeenheer:hey Bruno, your choice is not in the poll (Windows2000 and proud of it)
Bruno Sousa:Hans : you''re soooo wrong
Jeffrey Sullivan:Bruno -- you can change the size of the text by clicking on the upper right of this window
Lee4Dell:I'm sticking with WindowsME
Bruno Sousa:it''s NT 3.51 and still kicking :)
Steve Huemann:DOS forever :)
Jeffrey Sullivan:a font size of 72 should help
Bruno Sousa:Jeffrey : i know...the font was for the screen of Dennis
Jason Adams:The OpenManage Essentials poll is fun - should have "Use OpenManage Essentials with KACE"!
Alexander Nimmannit (@alexanderjn):Orange
@wonder_nerd:I agree Steve!
Peter Tsai:@Jason. that would make some people very happy if you voted for that
Jason Adams:@Peter - I'd vote as that is how I am using it.
Garcia:at what text size do you consider us yelling, if we decided too :)
Steve Huemann:I like the connection status / latency info button / realtime stats
Bruno Sousa:For a poll i suggest : on the past 6 months how many disks (SATA) based have you replaced on the EQL arrays ? 1, 2,3,4,5 more than 8 ? :)
Jeffrey Sullivan:WOnder why nobody picked this color.
Alexander Nimmannit (@alexanderjn):I know for our NetApp > 8
Jeffrey Sullivan:no one? nobody? public school grammar strikes again.
HansDeLeenheer:Jeff > you are absolutely right to claim that color
Bruno Sousa:latency : 200 ms...damn
Lee4Dell:Because we all knew you would Jeff
Lee4Dell:didnt want to impose on your territory:)
Jeffrey Sullivan:thanks Lee.
I CAN CHANGE MY NAME IN THE MIDDLE OF A CHAT:Hello World
Dennis Smith:@Bruno ok :)
Dennis Smith:be nice though
Bruno Sousa:Dennis : i''m always nice :)
Jeffrey Sullivan:hey, were testing.
Jeffrey Sullivan:break it
Jeffrey Sullivan:before we buy it
Emptyone:You haven't got the option to say 0 changed disks
Jason Adams:@Dennis - one flaw in the EQL poll - I've had two arrays for over a year with 0 replaced. No place for 0.
HansDeLeenheer:where's my I don't buy slow disks vote? :-)
Jeffrey Sullivan:nice @emptyone. :)
Dennis Smith:done :)
Bruno Sousa:not slow...high capacity ! :)
Bruno Sousa:8 disks in a universe of 72...could be worst
Emptyone:@Dennis, that's better :)
Lee4Dell:This chat client is pretty impressive!
Bruno Sousa:important is : no downtime suffered and some minor performance impact
Peter Tsai:do hyperlinks work?
@wonder_nerd:lol ya know I really shouldnt vote in that pole... as a var I represent way to many arrays :)
Jeffrey Sullivan:My head should be covered back up
Dennis Smith:that open for everyone?
Peter Tsai:that's good that it doesn't make you leave the chat
Peter Tsai:can we embed stuff
Lee4Dell:I felt like you were staring at us for a second Jeff!
Alexander Nimmannit (@alexanderjn):showed me gatse's mugshot then http://en.community.dell.com/techcenter/default.aspx
Jeffrey Sullivan:I'm always watching you Lee
Alexander Nimmannit (@alexanderjn):*Gates's
Bruno Sousa:pop-up blocker kicked in...but it''s okay now
Dennis Smith:could see the whole picture...... :)
Lee4Dell:Please change your text color Jeff. You're really startin to freak me out!
Emptyone:Nice collection of people on that picture
Dennis Smith:Anyone have a webcam and want to test the video :)
Alexander Nimmannit (@alexanderjn):I'm down for a webcam test
Hans De Leenheer:I could but my wife wouldnt like that (sitting next to me)
Garcia:odd, the chat text switched to 10 after the embedded picture was gone
Bruno Sousa:there u are
Garcia:my font and color also defaulted back to the original at login
Peter Tsai:are those kids drawings in te background Hans?
Steve Huemann:aahh -- very scary
Lee4Dell:now its a party!
Bruno Sousa:Hans : here''s the freaking Duval ?
Jeffrey Sullivan:Does my heair look alright?
Dennis Smith:audio for just a moment
Alexander Nimmannit (@alexanderjn):Freaky with no audio
Jeffrey Sullivan:wow, that's pretty fluid
Jason Adams:@Jeff - as good as it normally does
Bruno Sousa:good performance with this thing by the way...
Steve Huemann:nice shades
Peter Tsai:It's a party!
Emptyone:Looking fluid here as well
Lee4Dell:you know its a safe office when you have bars on the windows
Jeffrey Sullivan:anyone have audio?
Jason Adams:Not seeing any slow down on my end
Bruno Sousa:so far , good performance
Dennis Smith:anyone testing audio?
@wonder_nerd:I heard audio for a second
Jeffrey Sullivan:I tried.
Peter Tsai:testing 1234
Bruno Sousa:and i''m on 3G
Alexander Nimmannit (@alexanderjn):connected my audio
Bruno Sousa:or 2.5G
Peter Tsai:hmm my chat is a little laggy
@wonder_nerd:there we go...
Michaeld:performance seems good. i swear it looks like Jeff is plotting against us though...
Peter Tsai:after the video
Bruno Sousa:or whatever this thing has
Jeffrey Sullivan:I could hear alexander
Dennis Smith:nice...i hear the clapping
Bruno Sousa:i only hear claps
Peter Tsai:i hear it
Dennis Smith:should be able ot
Dennis Smith:peter can you
Peter Tsai:uh oh
Bruno Sousa:speak up guys!
Peter Tsai:my chat text is lagging by about 30 seconds
Bruno Sousa:loooooouuuder :)
Dennis Smith:Guess there's no limit on webcams
Peter Tsai:@wondernerd.. live and direct from his kitchen!
Bruno Sousa:you all sound that you are being terminated...
Bruno Sousa:metallic voice all the way
Dennis Smith:ok back to the chat part...thanks guys
@wonder_nerd:adjust your sound settings in the chat
virtualTodd:The video makes the old platform look really OLD!!!
Peter Tsai:oh weird, maybe my video was just not scrolling
Bruno Sousa:ah awesome
Jeffrey Sullivan:awesome, thanks everyone!
Garcia:that was good
Bruno Sousa:now i got a huge amount of delayed sounds...
Jason Adams:By far better than WebEx when we used to use it.
Dennis Smith:remember no chat roulette on techcenter :)
@wonder_nerd:lol I agree Todd
Bruno Sousa:talk about time travel :)
Steve Huemann:good stuff -- would like to see the hosting side of it sometime...
virtualTodd:Using the video thing could make these chats very compelling. Can you record the video feeds for playback later?
Dennis Smith:so this is what i see
Jeffrey Sullivan:imagine that would be nuts when we get past the 15 person limit
Garcia:looks good, but back off to work. you guys keep up on the great work
Bruno Sousa:with more than 30 users with video
Jeffrey Sullivan:Thanks Garcia
Bruno Sousa:it''s a big problem...
Jason Adams:@virtualTodd - if I remember - it can be recorded.
Jeffrey Sullivan:it is being recorded
Emptyone:You would get high hits on the recordings as well, everyone want to see themselves again and again from the recording :)
Steve Huemann:any way to manage questions coming in -- e.g., individual hosts "claim" them
Dennis Smith:I am recording this chat....will let you know how it turns out
Bruno Sousa:there''s always the possibility of recording the screen with some 3rd party tool
@wonder_nerd:I hope that doesnt mean I have to dress up for Tuesday tech center chats now. :)
virtualTodd:If I had known I was being recorded, I would have worn a cool hat and sunglasses
Bruno Sousa:Question to the PR/Sales guys
Hans De Leenheer:cooldnt resist sharing all our ugly faces on twitter :-) http://pic.twitter.com/aolqhsgm
Alexander Nimmannit (@alexanderjn):HA figures
Alexander Nimmannit (@alexanderjn)::)
Bruno Sousa:doesn''t salesforce offers a tool for interactive chat/video thing ?
Bruno Sousa:Dell uses salesforce as well...so it may be a good tool as well..
Jeffrey Sullivan:Too funny @Hans!
Dennis Smith:I'm not sure what they use....we had a meeting with an internal team and they were using adobe so we looked into it
Jeffrey Sullivan:Not sure Bruno, we'll look into that
Jeffrey Sullivan:anything left to test Dennis?
Bruno Sousa:i think i saw some sales guy at my work using the salesforce for a meeting with some other sales guy
Dennis Smith:there's also a an option to share files..which is pretty cool
Jeffrey Sullivan:I notice when you switch back our colors and sizes are gone
Bruno Sousa:that's why i suggested it
Hans De Leenheer:I already took my purple back
@wonder_nerd:where is the color setting?
erson:15 user limit it seems
Bruno Sousa:does the adobe run on ipad / android tablets, linux, or just Win with IE ?
Jeffrey Sullivan:Hey @erson!
Peter Tsai:Erson just got here
Steve Huemann:upper right of the window
Peter Tsai:yea we think just for the demo
Jeffrey Sullivan:yeah, we found that out the hard way. Sorry
Dennis Smith:Hey erson!....Yeah it looks like there was a 15 limit for the demo...sorry
Alexander Nimmannit (@alexanderjn):not sure what they'd be used for in this instance but apparently there are breakout rooms
Hans De Leenheer:Bruno: on anything that runs adobe ... so no iPad :-(
Bruno Sousa:Hans : ahah...adobe and Apple still don't get along
Michaeld:but you could use View/XenDesktop on the iPad :)
Peter Tsai:isn't adobe looking to move to HTML5
Jeffrey Sullivan:although this interface sure reminds me of apple
Alexander Nimmannit (@alexanderjn):http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/adobe-connect-mobile-for-ios/id430437503?mt=8
Bruno Sousa:it would be nice to make use of the new devices as well...
Emptyone:Everyone is going to use Win8 Slates soon anyway, so no problem
Bruno Sousa:if this tool is not HTML5 aware...drop it :)
Dennis Smith:hmm, lets see
@wonder_nerd:lol... yeah win 8 my crystal ball says windows me
Bruno Sousa:if the chat poll window could be minimized or have an auto-hide feature after it has been answered, it would be cool as well
Alexander Nimmannit (@alexanderjn):installing the oOS app
Alexander Nimmannit (@alexanderjn):*iOS
Hans De Leenheer:@Alexander: installing now | THX!
Steve Huemann:thanks -- good to see the platform... bye
Dennis Smith:Thanks Steve
Bruno Sousa:ah..it actuallu works on icrap
Jeffrey Sullivan:Thanks Steve!
Bruno Sousa:and my magic the poll window is gone
Dennis Smith:now jeff needs to buy the team iPads :)
Bruno Sousa:this tool is awesome
Jeffrey Sullivan:yeah, YOU present that biz case up the chain
erson:ooh, connection status button top right
Bruno Sousa:it actually reacts to user's wishes
Bruno Sousa:awesome !
Bruno Sousa:Dennis and Jeffrey : i would like to see u guys asking for a tablet from a vendor A, when you guys also have a tablet
Bruno Sousa:that would be nice
Jeffrey Sullivan:that would be entertaining
Jeffrey Sullivan:hence, Dennis should take that on
Bruno Sousa:and don''t use the "hm...it's to compare with our own solution'' :)
Dennis Smith:So i just heard from adobe...there is a 15 person limit for the trial and they are going to see if they can up that limit for us to test up to 100...if you guys are interested
Jeffrey Sullivan:Ok, so... we tested audio, video, screen sharing.
Jeffrey Sullivan:would have been interested about an hour ago
Bruno Sousa:Dennis : Adobe likes Dell...:)
Peter Tsai:chat is awesome so far
Hans De Leenheer:login in through ipad now
Peter Tsai:the other features there's some latency
Jeffrey Sullivan:Lets see if we can't use it for next week's. with 100
erson:yeah, this new chat looks promising
Dennis Smith:ok, I'll see if they can up it and we will use it next week
virtualTodd:Is it browser / HTML 5 based for ipad?
Hans De Leenheer:mmm ... takes longer than I'd hoped for
Bruno Sousa:this chat , compared with the JAVA based thing on the techcenter is awesome
Emptyone:After this Dell is going to buy Adobe to get Adobe Connect :)
Alexander Nimmannit (iPhone wifi):test from iphone
Bruno Sousa:emptyone : lol
Jeffrey Sullivan:yeah, the java thing is parachat, and we've been aching to get off that for awhile
Dennis Smith:iphone too..wow
Peter Tsai:@Alexander - i'm just waiting for Autocorrect to say something funny
virtualTodd:For the record, the Java client that we picked 5 years ago was great at the time we started using it :)
Alexander Nimmannit (iPhone wifi):the iPhone interface is pretty slick
Jeffrey Sullivan:there you go, blame todd
Bruno Sousa:to be really really good, it should support android :)
erson:awesome, you can actually copy paste URLs to this chat... ;)
Dennis Smith:Now you can chat with us no matter where you are....no more excuses :)
hansdeleenheer:ok, iPad certified
Bruno Sousa:virtualTodd : man...5 years..time goes by.
erson:/me wonders if /me works
Jeffrey Sullivan:I'm now directing all parachat complaints your way. :)
erson:apparently it doesn't
virtualTodd:It was actually Scott that found it (And paid for it initially)
Jeffrey Sullivan:5 years this May
Peter Tsai:@erson. you missed the 8 way webcam non chat
Dennis Smith:anyone know if there is an Android app...yes i am lazy and haven't looked
Bruno Sousa:well in all it's justice
Bruno Sousa:the chat is not the faulty..
Bruno Sousa:JAVA is
erson:My ADSL would probably have choked on an 8-way webcam chat
Bruno Sousa:erson : i have a 3G and it worked out..sort off
Peter Tsai:mine choked too...
erson:I always chat in the nude anyway so webcam is a no go ;)
Emptyone:I got ADSL, and it worked quite well
Bruno Sousa:erson > lol !
Bruno Sousa:man...that was funny erson !
Dennis Smith:Android app being downloaded now
Bruno Sousa:Dennis : just give it a go
virtualTodd:There is an app in the andorid market, I mean google play for adobe connect - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=air.com.adobe.connectpro&hl=en
Bruno Sousa:android 2.xx , 3 or 4 ?
Dennis Smith:yep i got it.
erson:I guess it's no use looking for a wp7 app (yet)
Bruno Sousa:this play.google.com is a really shiity name
Dennis Smith:@bruno i am running 2.3.6
Jeffrey Sullivan:google play. they need to rework their marketing dept.
Bruno Sousa:google meant pay.google.com and they just had a typo...
Bruno Sousa:dennis : 4.0.5 here and not go..
Bruno Sousa:but than again...this 4.0.5 is not official, so it's a non-fair test
erson:how is the sharing features?
Dennis Smith:might have to test on my Touchpad running 4 :)....although there's no camera
Alexander Nimmannit (iPad):nice, I can vote from each device
Bruno Sousa:Dennis : than u can chat naked like erson :)
Dennis Smith:@erson pretty good...here I'll share my screen
erson:was it possible to login to the chat with a regular delltechcenter account?
Bruno Sousa:erson : nope
erson:CMC, just the way I like to roll
Bruno Sousa:dell has not integrated the SSO to adobe ..yet :)
Dennis Smith:no...not sure if that would be possible, but if we decide to go with adobe we'll look into it
Bruno Sousa:Dennis, Jeffrey : do you guys support any thing like openID and adobe as well? if so, that would be great for the unique username thing
Dennis Smith:I always ignore the IM's anyway
erson:well, it sure looks like a powerful chat solution anyhow
Hans De Leenheer:hey Dennis, running Lync? Isn't that agaisnt DELL policy? Aren't you still on old school communicator?
Jeffrey Sullivan:we all got pushed to lync
Dennis Smith:no they upgraded :)
Bruno Sousa:and the dragonnet allows u to use lync ? :)
Bruno Sousa:lucky you ? :)
erson:private chat looks great as well
Hans De Leenheer:but your not publicly available yet :-)
Alexander Nimmannit (@alexanderjn):anyone tested out the whiteboarding feature?
Dennis Smith:we are publicly available :)
Dennis Smith:no...but we can
Hans De Leenheer:come on! haha
Bruno Sousa:it works and everything this whiteboard thing
Dennis Smith:hans...draw away
erson:do you have to install the add-in to get access to whiteboard, webcam and so forth?
Joe Cool:Can we ask equallogic questions?
@wonder_nerd:I didnt to get my web cam up
Bruno Sousa:this guy is a Picasso
Dennis Smith:bandwidth should be better if we get the full version too
Hans De Leenheer:draw with finger on brand new lattitude XT3 :-)
Jeffrey Sullivan:@Joe -- have osome EQ q's? fire away. We'll get them answered
Alexander Nimmannit (@alexanderjn):supposedly there is a file sharing feature too
virtualTodd:Very cool stuff. See everybody next week.
erson:how did you initiate the whiteboard feature?
erson:is the add-in needed?
Jeffrey Sullivan:Dennis made him a presenter
Hans De Leenheer:somebody gave me sharing right and I could choose between desktop, application or whiteboard
Dennis Smith:file sharing??? let's see
Joe Cool:What happens to a volume when a move operation from a source EQ array to a target EQ array is interrupted? The original volume still remains intact and usable, right?What happens to a volume when a move operation from a source EQ array to a target EQ array is interrupted? The original volume still remains intact and usable, right?
Hans De Leenheer:hwat do you mean by "move"
Alexander Nimmannit (@alexanderjn):Jeff, just emailed you a photo
Jeffrey Sullivan:Got it, funny!
Dennis Smith:@iSCSIKing says that he believes that to be true
Alexander Nimmannit (@alexanderjn):ooo, iOS is saying Unsupported COntent for the file sharing window
Bruno Sousa:@Hans : http://goo.gl/nIdo4
Hans De Leenheer:I saw it :-)
Emptyone:Win 8 slate back in the game :)
Bruno Sousa:Joe > everytime i moved a volume and i had to stop the action i never ran into a problem with the volume
Alexander Nimmannit (@alexanderjn):download worked on desktop
@wonder_nerd:I agree with Bruno.
@wonder_nerd:I was able to download as well
Bruno Sousa:so it should be not problem, ''coz as far as i know EQL copies block pages and not moves than untill the entire volume is valid on the destinantion volume
Bruno Sousa:but..i might be wrong
@wonder_nerd:Bruno I belive that to be correct as well. At least that is what past experiance has taught me.
Dennis Smith:Awsome...thanks everyone for hanging out and testing out adobe connect. Hopefully we can get the user limit lifted for next week
Bruno Sousa:assuming the EQL is a man made thing, and humans make mistakes...it's prone to errors
Bruno Sousa:Dennis : If not let's us know...we can try to build a biz case around it :)
Joe Cool:Move as in moving a volume from one array to another (in the same storage group). Thanks Bruno but I need absolute answer to question. :-)
Bruno Sousa:Joe : i done it around 2 dozens times and 100% sucess
Bruno Sousa:in life there''s no absolute guarantees..expect death and taxes
Dennis Smith:Joe...are you on twitter? If so reach out to @iscsiking if not ask in our forums http://en.community.dell.com/techcenter/storage/f/4466.aspx
@wonder_nerd:I do it once a week or so... if you need absolute open a ticket with Eql support
Dennis Smith:But i believe that is correct
Bruno Sousa:you can do some stuff before
Jeffrey Sullivan:Ok, I've got to run. Thanks everyone for helping us evaluate this tool. More to come!
Bruno Sousa:like making sure your destinantion array has space for the new volume
Dennis Smith:Thanks for joing today guys...don't be alarmed if a techcenter window opens when the chat is over.. :)
Dennis Smith:see you guys next week
Bruno Sousa:that all the connections from all the servers can talk to that new array (ping all IPs of that array from the servers and not just the group IP)
erson:techcenter gang in the background
Bruno Sousa:if possible do it when the system is with a low usage
Bruno Sousa:but for your information
Bruno Sousa:i moved today a 1TB (not thin) volume
Bruno Sousa:between 2 EQL arrays, separated by 20KM;s to each other
Hans De Leenheer:@joe, is you mean moving between storage pools in the same group this will go completely online
Bruno Sousa:without any problem
Bruno Sousa:oh yeah..i have 10GbE fiber between the sites to do that :)
@wonder_nerd:We have a PS6500 loaner array that we loan out so people can do non disruptive firmware updates...
Hans De Leenheer:yes, then you have a good solution: clean array, create new storage pool in same storage group
erson:Ok, great to see some improvement in the chat department. Talk to you guys later. Bye.
