Z Uber Move - Second Draft Of Plans gpmidi Sat, 02/01/2020 - 14:45

Updated Plans!

First up, the door install is set for Tuesday, February 11th. Once the door is in two of the libraries (the two working ones) will come inside. I'll probably end up using movers to handle getting the boxes, shelving, tool boxes, and other stuff out to the garage. Although I'm not sure yet if I'll try to get the libraries inside before, during, or after the movers come.

Next up in the z uber move...Getting the tape libraries from the garage to the server room. This will require installing a much larger door (two doors really), building a ramp, and moving a metric ton of boxes of gear/cables/parts/etc.

i6000 - Serial Port On MCU gpmidi Tue, 06/25/2019 - 12:30

As far as I can tell the serial port on the i6000's and i2000's MCU spits out binary data. Documentation I found a while ago said it was not a console port but for something else. Might be worth digging into this more for debugging info but probably not worth while for now. 

Big Step Forward!

The robot in the i2000 is powering up and moving. It's getting caught up in a few places and I'm getting a low voltage warning too. Gotta figure out if it's the cable chain, the tracks (bottom bar was bent up a bit), or the robotics module that has all of the motor controllers in it.

Scalar i500, i2000, and i6000 Security - Service Account

Submitted by gpmidi on Mon, 12/17/2018 - 09:51

If you're using a Quantum, Dell, or ADIC Scalar product you should check to see if the password of the GUI's 'service' account is static. If it is then there is a pretty trivial way to get into the system using the vendor's maintenance account. The one system I have access to, an i2000, has a login of service:10101100. 

Scalar i500, i2000, and i6000 Security - Service Port

Submitted by gpmidi on Mon, 12/17/2018 - 09:51

If you're using a Quantum, Dell, or ADIC Scalar product you need to make sure the 'service port' isn't remotely accessible. If it is then there is a pretty trivial way to get into the system as 'root'. The port is explicitly listed in the manual as not for "normal" use. 

tl;dr If you aren't plugging in stuff you shouldn't (per manual) then the risk isn't that bad.
