Silly Server Disastrous Create by Human

It was definitely silly that I have to waste my effort working over time for nothing. Yesterday, our company server suddenly went disaster when our Exchange services crash at the morning before lunch.  I thought it was normal or even maybe just some errors so I decided to remotely log in and restart the server during lunch. After that, things went nuts and the screen showing the 'Applying Computer Setting' running for more than an hour including signing into the account.

Apparently the problem shows many of the Exchange services crashes unable to start automatically which took freaking long continuously trying load. Luckily, my finding in the event logs prove I didn't screw up the server since the problem started after 11AM. Phew~! But what I'm curios was how the fuck suddenly happen like that?

Well, I’m not a god damn expect on Exchange so have to rely on Google.  I can't seem to be able to find the right answers for two and half hours sitting in the server room figuring out the right solution. I tested many methods doesn't work and did however found about turning on the IPV6 on the Local Area Connection network properties setting. Honestly, I have no confidence on the solution and afraid I might somehow screw it up even more badly. Every choices involve some risk not unless I went for the training then I dared to try. It just never did and the right answer was turning on the IPV6 then it SOLVED EVERYTHING!!!

It was solved by my colleagues at night. Very simple method and just remember when I first install Microsoft Exchange require IPV6 including connected to network to work properly even during fresh installation. No matter if you are not using you must always turn it on. Such little details I couldn’t remember.

This beg a question why it was turned off the first place? We all thought could be a server 2008 |R2 related bug since one of my colleagues who work on it never update or patching any Windows update during fresh installation. Somehow, it wasn't the case not until today it happen again in the morning. We finally caught the culprit and non other my XXXXXXX.

Yup, censor. I have my reason but if you are smart. You should already guess. Nonetheless, I am fucking pissed I work over time and rush back to HQ for nothing when someone simply screws around not even bother to check if the server is running properly or not. Even worst, not informing us he had done something on it, just keeping quiet. I really hate this kind of irresponsible people. Every day, I had to worked angrily thinking how to escape this huge mess and avoid slowly involving into it. I already sick of dealing with a dumbass who still showing no improvement at work and now another trying something silly. I am really sick and tired all of this.

Brunet SMTP Server Under Global Blacklist?

Based on my finding, yes it is. I already started noticing this issue starting last year December when my users starting to complain about their email messages not reaching several existing contacts. Slowly things get even uglier between February and March, the messages would deliver into junk in Outlook automatically. The 3rd party email like Gmail services follow, sending them into SPAM folder. Even the Barracuda Spam Firewall sees as threat and start rejecting. As far I know, my company experiences the worst when the email messages almost completely go AWOL in 3rd week last month. The 4th week, the messages all stuck in the queue for unknown reason and getting relay messages. We found out the local domain name suddenly no longer working and tried using smtp.brunet.bn as temporary solution. It didn’t work either. In the end, we had to convince the management to purchase 3rd party SMTP service to get the whole thing running. It’s not like we did not investigate the physical server, M…

Guide on Registering Brunei Citizenship Examination (Update#1)

I never thought registering Brunei Citizenship examination are really fucking inconvenienced. Worst, I don't see blogger write about it either in the web search telling us how and what to bring. So to make this easy, I decided to write the guide for my future reference and hopefully able to help you fellow PR. Avoid Waste of TimeFirst of all, people may told you to register in the capital usually way faster. It's true but my question is, do you really need to be that hurry? Bahasa Brunei are not easy to learned (even most local Malay) and remembering every details of this country takes lots of effort studying. Unless you already a good confidence in speaking and writing, you may go ahead. Still, if you live in Belait or Tutong or even Temburong district. My suggestion go for the nearest and shortest route to the immigration building for registration. The reason I recommend that way are nobody knows when the law and rules will change every years in Brunei (as well announced b…

Brunei Has a Porno Celebrity?

That was really unexpected information found in Wikipedia and surprise to know we have a porno celebrity in our country. Her name is Jayna Oso, was born in Brunei and raised at Hawaii according to the Wiki. She is really quite popular in the states and not to mention hardcore porn star.“This Photo belong to Shiroi Kaze”I don’t really know if that is true after I decided to look through her profile in the official porn site. It somehow didn’t state that she was from Brunei instead they only mention about Malaysia. I think this might be a mistake or something and probably her mother was Malaysian. It just my guess and only she herself know the answer. Well, if you want to dug deeper, you might want to visit her My Space and drop her a question.
