Infrared remote (e.g. Logitech Harmony) with Wetek OpenELEC

Wetek OpenELEC is a small box running OpenELEC. OpenELEC is a media center based on Kodi. In comparison to a Raspberry Pi running OpenELEC, Wetek OpenELEC includes a TV tuner (DVB-C/T, DVB-S oder ATSC). So you don’t have to find a compatible tuner by yourself and have everything integrated in a nice little box. Shipment includes an AirMouse. This is a remote which can be used as a mouse due to built-in motion sensors. Because I already use a Logitech Harmony as an universal remote I also wanted to control Wetek OpenELEC with this remote. Wetek OpenELEC is a special edition of Wetek Play (differences between these two). So getting an infrared remote to work with Wetek Play should be pretty similar.

NetApp vFiler DR with Data ONTAP Simulator Part 10: Disaster Failover

This article is part of a series.

Disaster Failover is very similar to a planned failover described in part 9 of this series. Because the master is not available unexpectedly the vFiler cannot be stopped and the temporary replication from slave to master has to be set up later before the rollback. When the master is powered on again you have to take care that the vFiler is not started automatically. Otherwise the vFiler is running on master and slave simultaneously. In comparison to the planned failover steps 1, 4 and 5 are moved from failover to rollback.

NetApp vFiler DR with Data ONTAP Simulator Part 9: Planned Failover

This article is part of a series.

With the configuration tasks of the previous parts you now have an environment where netapp01 can be considered as master and netapp02 as slave. Clients use the share of the vFiler running on the master (netapp01) and the data is replicated to the slave (netapp02). Because of this replication if the master fails you can also start the vFiler on the slave without data loss.
