  • Annual Members Meeting
  • Regular Monthly Meeting:
    • Node updates are nearly done (only three APUs are left, plus any offline devices) includes:
      • new ssh hostkeys,
      • new OpenVPN keys and CA infrastructure,
      • new root passwords and /etc/shadow hash.
      • TP Link WDR3600 in some cases, e.g. with a private network and filtering rules, runs completely out of space on flash, solved by removing some unused psutils-ng applets from build configuration
      • Worth noting that nodes that are offline will (probably) not be able be remotely reachable after the old CA key expires on August 3rd, if they come back up.
      • Node customizations - script to capture some customizations and replay on upgrade.
        • ie ptp-passwords.default script
    • Interserver VPN links need updating for expiring CA key too, but luckily they aren't hiding behind firewalls.
    • Node notes:
      • NodeCedarHillsCrossing -- DSL modem was replaced, but we had a different outage, appears to be a power delivery problem inside the mall, we couldn't reach either of the Buffalo WZR600DHP access points since noon-ish on Monday. Resolved Wednesday morning, when scissor lift was able to confirm the power to the ledge outlets was off, and the power was restored.

      • NodeEcotrust got its upstairs AP plugged back in, cable had fallen out of the PoE injector.

      • NodeLuckyLab -- will try to replace the APs with Meraki MR24's at the meeting.

      • NodeBeulahLand -- seems alix is okay, but roof is not reachable?

      • NodeLikewise -- needs a replacement MR24 and/or power supply

      • NodeMoby -- we are planning to add a Ubiquiti Nano Loco M2 and a long ethernet run to improve upstairs coverage.

      • new VZA node coming in St Johns, meeting at the site next Monday.
