Firefox Issue: Equallogic Group Manager Applet Doesn’t Work Properly After Upgrade to Java 7 Update 25

By admin, June 28, 2013 3:25 pm

The EQL GM Java Applet stays as blank screen for about 2 minutes and then throws an exception as shown in the picture below, simply ignore the error then group manager login screen will appear agin. This problem doesn’t occur if I launch the EQL GM in web browser, strange!

Seemed quite a few having the same problem on Dell’s EQL forum after upgrading to Java 7 Update 25, Yes, we selected to upgrade because there is a serious security hole in Java 6.


This is the warning showing in Firefox Add-On Page.


The other problem is after I clean the Java Cache, my EQL Group Manager icon on desktop has also gone, does anyone know how to recreate such icon? I don’t want to re-install HIT for Windows again just for getting the icon back for sure. :)

Is 7,200 RPM NL-SAS Really Reliable? Think Again!

By admin, June 27, 2013 8:11 am

Just received an alert from Equallogic this morning regarding hard disk firmware update.

Dell has made improvements in the drive error handling routines of EqualLogic array firmware over the course of the last few years and has worked closely with its drive manufacturers to improve the error handling routines of the hard drives.

We have released the newest version of hard disk drive firmware, EC04, for the below listed 7200RPM based 1TB, and 2TB drives shipped on the PS4100E, PS6100E, PS6110E, and the PS6110E arrays

  • Toshiba 7200 RPM NL-SAS MK1001TRKB (1 TB)
  • Toshiba 7200 RPM NL-SAS MK2001TRKB (2 TB)

If you are using arrays with these drives, Dell strongly recommends that you update the hard disk drive firmware.

I recall I’ve received the same kind of alert at least 3-4 times regarding 7,200 RPM SATA/NL-SAS firmware update in the past 3 years and none for SAS. Worst many users reported frequent 7,200 RPM disks failure or false positive. In additional, past EQL’s firmware updates constantly indicate there were problems with error detection or false positive of the 7,200 RPM disks. So I think this does provide you a clear picture how reliable those slower disks can be. Now with disks moving into 4TB each, I don’t think it’s pleasant scenario to see one of these failed.

The good thing is Equallogic is always working closely with the disk vendor to improve its reliability over the years. That’s why we see Improved “hard drive monitoring intelligence with an advanced predictive reliability algorithm” has been built into it’s latest firmware again.

We have released recommended software updates for EqualLogic PS Series Arrays: Firmware versions 6.0.5 and 5.2.9, which include key maintenance fixes.
Notably, the v6.0.5 release includes recent improvements to hard drive monitoring intelligence with an advanced predictive reliability algorithm. This algorithm is designed to help preserve overall system reliability and long-term performance by proactively identifying drives which are at risk for failure, copying their data, and allowing you to safely replace them. In a small percentage of storage arrays, this process will occur shortly after the array firmware is updated. More details are included in the release notes. Version 6.0.5 also removes a false error warning that appeared on some arrays following drive replacement, and includes other fixes.

We recommend that you move to the v6 firmware stream and adopt v6.0.5. However, for customers staying on the 5.x code stream, we have released v5.2.9 which includes the drive reliability algorithm mentioned above and additional fixes.

昨晚在尖東前往演唱會的途中看到了這台老當益壯的奔馳老爺爺(W114 220D LWB),看來應該每天仍然在行駛中,佩服!

Leftover Trojan Can’t be Removed?

By admin, June 16, 2013 12:16 pm

Recently, I encountered some trojan asp scripts that cannot be removed, finally found it’s related to Windows folder name restriction, clever! but how did the hacker able to create those in the first place?

The other thing is I sensed more and more DDOS and Antispam mail is sending from the hidden PHP scripts these days, it’s becoming harder to catch them.

网站被放置了许多木马文件 nul.asp ,怎么也删除不了,提示 无法删除 nul; 参数不正确 ,正郁闷的时候找到了原因以及删除方法。

我的网站就是FCK文件夹下被放了两个nul.asp,于是在cmd dos下删除了它。

Microsoft Windows [版本 5.2.3790]
(C) 版权所有 1985-2003 Microsoft Corp.

C:\Documents and Settings\BEN>del \\.\D:\wwwroot\FCKeditor\editor\filemanager

C:\Documents and Settings\BEN>del \\.\D:\wwwroot\FCKeditor\editor\css\images\

C:\Documents and Settings\BEN>
Windows 下不能够以下面这些字样来命名文件/文件夹,包括:“aux”“com1”“com2”“prn”“con”和“nul”等,因为这些名字都属于设备名称

,等价于一个 DOS 设备,如果我们把文件命名为这些名字,Windows 就会误以为发生重名,所以会提示“不能创建同名的文件”等等。
当然,有一些特殊的方法可以偷机取巧,建立以这些设备名为名的文件夹,比如我们在命令提示符下执行“md C:\aux\\”,就在 C 盘建了一个名叫

aux 的文件夹。此文件夹虽然可以访问,也可以建立子文件夹,但却无法删除,因为 Windows 不允许以这种方式删除设备。在系统看来,这个 aux

那么,如何删除这样的文件/文件夹呢?我们只要按照完整的 UNC 路径格式,就是网上邻居的路径格式,正确输入文件路径及文件名即可。比如要删

除 C 盘下的 aux 文件夹,可在命令提示符下执行:rd /s \\.\C:\aux,rd 是命令提示符删除文件夹的命令,/s 参数表示从所有子目录删除指定文


再比如要删除 C 盘 temp 文件夹下的 nul.exe 文件,在命令提示符下执行:del \\.\C:\temp\nul.exe 即可。

之前在國際拍賣網站看到了這個漂亮的國產女皇車,但是就是死活也不肯賣給中國顧客(包括香港),好像生怕我抄他的模具似的,真搞不明白! 沒辦法,鬼叫自己特別喜歡那個St George屠龍的頭標,最後逼我從日本那邊入手,真麻煩!






British Cars: The “Spirit of Ecstasy” – Rolls Royce


The familiar symbol on the front of every Rolls-Royce built since 1911 — a female figure leaning forward with robes billowing out behind her — is officially known as the “Spirit of Ecstasy.” The model for this figure was a lady called Eleanor Velasco Thornton. The Rolls-Royce factory workers used to refer to the figure not as the Spirit of Ecstasy, but less poetically as “Nellie in her Nightie.”

Eleanor’s connection with Rolls-Royce led to a tragic love story. Through her work as a secretary for the Automobile Club (now the RAC), she met many motor car enthusiasts, including John Scott Montagu, second Lord Montagu of Beaulieu. Eleanor and Montagu embarked on a love affair which, surprisingly, was tolerated by Montagu’s wife. She felt that had he not met Eleanor, he might have become involved with a less discreet woman, and this would inevitably have led to scandal.

When Montagu was asked to take up an administrative post in India at the start of World War I, Lady Montagu was happy for Eleanor to accompany him, nominally acting as his secretary. Their ship, the SS Persia, was torpedoed by a U-boat in the Mediterranean. In the chaos on board as the vessel sank, the lovers were separated. Montagu was eventually rescued after spending days on a life raft; Eleanor was lost. Montagu never forgave himself, saying afterward, “I should have got a stronger grip on her.” He spent many weeks traveling around ports where survivors had been taken, hoping to hear news of her, without success.

The one car which has a different mascot than the one modeled by Eleanor belongs to the Queen. She has a mascot made of solid silver, with a representation of St. George on a horse poised victoriously over a slain dragon.

印象中最能代表80年代成功人士的座駕莫非奔馳的R107 SL系列所屬。加上美國大片American Gigolo里Richard Gere身穿Armani開著那台敞篷的450SL奔馳,更加確定了此車當年的社會地位重要性。今天下午經過停車場發現鄰居買了台鐵灰色80年代的300SL,不用說,肯定又是當年的情意結所致,買回來過過癮。
