A temporary outage on the AMS-IX internet backbone caused an extended outage of internet traffic across Netherlands.
Dear Tech-L subscribers,
Today Wednesday 13/05/2015 at 12:20 UTC+2 an installation engineer working on the PE under maintenance in EQUINIX AM3, while testing one of the newly installed 100GE modules, accidentally placed a loop on the ISP peering VLAN.
The loop caused a high CPU on all backbone and customer modules resulting in many BGP sessions dropping.
The incident lasted 10 minutes.
BGP sessions are restoring.
The situation has normalized again.
If you accidentally have misplaced or forgotten your Bitlocker Recovery key, but still have access to the system (with an elevated account), you can retrieve the recovery key quite easily through the command line:
Open an elevated command prompt and type:
manage-bde -protectors -get C:
Replace C: with any drive that has Bitlocker enabled. Note that if it's not the system volume but some other drive that's encrypted, you need to unlock it first before you can retrieve the recovery key.
The dial codes for setting up call redirection on your cell. These codes are specifically for Proximus (Belgian carrier), but may work with your carrier as well.
|after 15 secs||**61*number#||##61#||**61#|
It's recommended to specify the number in international notation (+country), even for national calls.
Reactivation means it's activated with the number you specified last time.
If your Samsung Galaxy S5 may not find or be able to connect to a specific 5Ghz wireless network, you may want to check which channel the network is operating on. The S5 has problems when trying to connect to DFS-channels (Dynamic Frequency Selection).
DFS-channels are basically every channel from channel 52 and up. Try setting your AP to a channel between 36-48 (inc.), and then try reconnecting your S5.
You may have noticed that running the VMWare vSphere client on a display with higher DPI settings causes problems with the mouse cursor alignment when working inside a VM. This is because of a mismatch between the DPI settings of the VM and the DPI settings of your computer.
To resolve, right-click the shortcut to the client, go to the Compatibility tab, and enable Disable display scaling on high DPI settings.
The downside of this method is that there will be misalignment of some parts in the client, but it is still workable and moreover, it solves the mouse issue in a VM.
If Windows Update (or Microsoft Update) produces error code 0x80072EFD, you are most likely blocked by a firewall or a proxy.
When attempting to install or upgrade VMWare vServer server or its components, you may get the following prompt:
Please insert the Disk: 1
If you click OK, the message reappears. Clicking Cancel results in the installation to roll back.
Copy the entire installation files to a location on the local hard drive and run the install/upgrade from there.
When running the installation from the local hard drive, and you get the error Provided password is wrong or empty, reboot and re-run the install from the local hard drive.
