Not so much resting…

What a terrible time the last couple of weeks have been. There hasnt been too much resting at all going on at work, though the last week has taken the cake.

We run a McAfee Email and Web Security Appliance at work, which was running version 4.5, but 4.5 will fall out of support with McAfee in Feb 2010, so we had to upgrade.

Upgrading the RAM wasnt an issue, but after a fresh install of the new OS (No in place upgrade from ver 4.5 to ver 5) and reconfiguring (can’t import the settings from 4.5) we have been hit with no end of problems…. Web being blocked, email being blocked, downloads running extremely slow etc. Oh what fun and games.

Then what I thought was part of the web issues with the appliance turned out to be an ISA 2004 issue instead. Why do these things all spring up at the same time?

I got a shipment of keyboards in today to replace some old ones, and of course I am one of the last people to find out that there sitting in reception so I have had half a dozen people come up and ask when there getting a new keyboard already… Give me a break, there is more important things that need fixing before I worry about keyboards.

hopefully next week will be better….
