Or replacing the older gear, as SSD performance is better / cheaper /
faster than a whole lot of old high-end HDD-focused storage.
So here is the irony. The EVA replaced a serial cabled HSG80, which in this
situation would still be accessible ! Newer ain't always better, and you
know the old story that if it ain't broke, don't fix it, replace it, update it
as it's cheaper to buy nothing. How long till a shiny new 3PAR goes inaccessible
due to "new" security or access methods? SSH makes it look a dodgy
prospect now from VMS. Non starter. bring back DSSI and SWXCRs.
No one source, not even that article helps much. The browser also needs
to support flash, which means downgrading and then preventing
automatic update. This is in addition to installing the flash components
fron archived (or saved) distributions. I think the MMS.CFG is a red
While access to the EVA P6000 console still hasn't been established, I
have an old version of Opera that DOES support flash, I will install it OFF
the network, then connect up and see if I make progress. (when its installed
online it updates to a version that doesn't support flash. Grrrr.).
Another option might be a dual installation of firefox, the normal 64bit
then a 32 bit version 84 with update disabled. i need to check that
it doesn't interfere with the 64 bit version and i have a test platform.
It claims it creates a new profile.
All this waits while physical access is allowed for COVID19
restrictions, and remote access got cut and not re-established due to
some short sighted decisions. Another to add to my stories of
things you can't make up.
