Niall’s virtual diary archives – Sunday 3rd February 2013

by . Last updated .

Sunday 3rd February 2013: 7.13pm. Location: Waterloo, Ontario.

Did my first ever migration of a large cloud VM yesterday. I had a VM on the house cloud node which was eating 30gb of data a week, and I got billed $40 last month for exceeding our Rogers cap. So it had to go. Took much of the day to replicate out, and just before bed last night I went to activate it. Big mistake! Ended up awake till 8am trying to fix the problems, because Linux iptables just will not packet forward to a non local IP like it is supposed to. And after just six hours sleep will have to lose my Sunday too. Arse. You live and learn I guess.
