The new site is almost ready to go!
Just some before and after shots.
Lots of unboxing, running around, playing with new gear, meeting new people and having a blast while doing it.
Built a Server 2012 DC on a workstation to handle temporary logins for users until the Ballarat site is hooked in to the global network, set up 4x ADSL2+ connections for temporary internet access to then be the backup/guest network. Racked, connected and configured 2x Fortinet FortiGate 200D appliances and configured policy based routes to get the Fusion Broadband ADSL2+ connections from one server room, through the DMZ link, over fiber to another server room incoming to it’s DMZ link, and distributed to the LAN clients. Got there in the end!
Now that all the computers and monitors are out on desks, the next task is creating a base Windows 7 image with Office 2013 and some other bits and pieces to then distribute to the rest. ImageX and WDS will be used for this. Fun fun!
In continuing my completely ad-hoc use of this blog, here’s an update!
We bought a new tent. It’s going to be used for camping. Pretty revolutionary stuff. The tent is the best I’ve ever had. Bastard of a thing to get up at first, but then I pulled my head out and pinned all the corners down which made the process a hell of a lot easier.
Alice and I have also moved to Ballarat Victoria!
I’ve gotten myself a nice IT job here which I’m stoked about. Started today and my heads still spinning at all the possibilities :) Looking forward to the challenges ahead.
Here’s some happy snaps.
