Using bare-metal recovery to migrate physical machines to virtual machines with VMware #physical #to #virtual #conversion


Using bare-metal recovery to migrate physical machines to virtual machines with VMware

One of the really nice things about using VMware (or other virtual server solutions) is that you don’t have to worry about bare-metal recovery or a bare-metal restore of the virtual servers. As long as you can get them to not change during a backup, all you have to do is back up their files. However, you can use the bare-metal recovery procedure to migrate physical machines into virtual machines. We just did this and turned 25 very old physical servers into one very nice VMware server. The following describes that migration.

I get asked all kinds of questions about backup products and how they behave on different operating systems and applications, and I use a lab to answer these questions. In addition to the usual backup hardware (SAN, tape libraries, virtual tape libraries), it consists of some Sun, IBM, and HP hardware running Solaris, AIX, and HP-UX. Until just recently, we also had about 25 Intel machines running various versions of Linux and Windows and their associated applications (Exchange, SQL Server, Oracle, etc.).

I never had enough machines, and I never had the right machines connected to the right hardware. We were constantly swapping SCSI and Fibre Channel cards, as well as installing and uninstalling applications. I could have used 100 machines, but that would obviously be prohibitive in many ways. (The cooling alone would be crazy.)

So we recently decided to see if we could get rid of all these servers with VMware. We bought a white box with a 3.5GHz Dual Core AMD processor, 4GB DDR2 RAM and 1.75TB of internal SATA disks. I installed into that server two Fibre Channel cards and two SCSI cards. I then followed the alt-boot recovery method to move all of those physical servers into virtual servers, virtually upgrading each of their CPUs, storage, and memory in the process. Here are the steps I followed for each server:

  • I used the alt-boot full image method to create an image of the entire /dev/hda hard drive to an NFS mount on the new VMware server. (These images were typically 4 GB to 10 GB. They were old servers!)
  • I used VMware to create a virtual machine specifying a virtual IDE hard drive that was much bigger than the original, usually about 20 GB or 40 GB.
  • I used VMware to create a virtual CD drive that pointed to an ISO file that was actually a symbolic link to an ISO image of a Knoppix CD on the hard drive.
  • I booted the virtual machine into Knoppix using the virtual Knoppix CD.
  • I used dd to copy the image of the real hard drive to the virtual hard drive in the virtual machine booted from the virtual CD. (We did this by mounting the NFS drive where we stored the image.)
  • I removed the Knoppix CD by changing the symbolic link to point to an ISO image of a nonbootable CD and rebooted the virtual server.
  • In almost every case, the virtual server came up without incident, and voila! I had moved a physical server into a virtual server without a hitch! One Windows server was blue-screening during the boot, but I pressed F8 and selected Last Known Good Configuration, and it booted just fine.
  • I installed VMware tools into each virtual machine, which made their video and other drivers much happier.
  • Once I verified the health of each machine, I changed the CD symbolic link to point to Knoppix again and booted into Knoppix. I then used either qtparted (for Linux systems), or fdisk and ntfsresize (for Windows systems) to grow the original hard drive to the new size.

With 4 GB of RAM and a 3.5 GHz dual-core processor, I can run about eight virtual servers at a time without swapping. I typically only need a few at a time, and what’s important is that I have Exchange 2000, SQL Server X, or XYZ x.x running; they don’t need to run that fast. (That’s how I was able to get by with those old servers for so long.) Each virtual server can have access to either one of the Fibre Channel cards or SCSI cards, which gives them access to every physical and virtual tape drive in the lab. They will also have more CPU, disk, and RAM than they ever had in their old machine. (I can even temporarily give any of them the entire 3.5 GHz processor and almost all of the 4 GB of RAM if I need to, and I don’t have to swap chips or open up any CPU thermal compound to do it!)

I also get to have hundreds of virtual servers and not have any logistical or cooling issues, since each server only represents 20 GB to 50 GB of space on the hard drive. I can have a Windows 2000 server running no special apps, one running Exchange 5, one running SQL Server 7, a server running Windows 2003 with no special apps, one with Exchange 2000, and one running Windows Vista. I could have servers running every distribution of Linux, FreeBSD, and Solaris x86 — and all of the applications those servers support. I think you get the point. I’ve got enough space for about 300 virtual server combinations like that. It boggles the mind.

Pre-Physical Therapy Requirements #requirement #to #be #a #physical #therapist


Pre-Physical Therapy Requirements


Prior to admission, a minimum of 90 semester hours of credit from an approved college or university is required. Students should be broadly educated in the sciences and humanities. The Department of Physical Therapy recognizes that, since physical therapy deals with people, an understanding of literature, art, history, ethics, and philosophy is an adjunct to a physical therapist. Science and humanities are both viewed as necessary for the practice of physical therapy.

Students who enter the professional program without a bachelor’s degree must complete the Essential Studies Requirements of the University of North Dakota. The courses and credits listed below indicate the core prerequisites all applicants must complete prior to admission to the physical therapy program.

Students may take additional electives from any field of study; however, the depth of the pre-physical therapy education should demonstrate that students have progressed from simple to complex studies in at least one content area. This requirement might typically be demonstrated by a discipline major, but in any case should demonstrate a basic comprehensiveness and integrity of study within a particular content area. This does not suggest that a separate undergraduate degree must be awarded; however, the breadth and depth in a discipline should be demonstrated. Course credits equivalent to an already recognized minor OR 20 credits of a cognate (credits in a particular discipline) with at least eight (8) of those cognate credits from upper level courses, i.e. 300 and/or 400 numbers, could accomplish this requirement.

Prospective students should review the UND PT Technical Standards to make sure they meet the requirements of the professional program. It is strongly recommended students are computer literate prior to entering the professional program.

Central Washington University is excited to offer a Master of Science Degree in Athletic Administration. The master’s program is a 46-credit online program. The CWU Master of Science in Athletic Administration prepares aspiring and practicing athletic administrators for successful careers in Athletic Administration by providing knowledge, understanding, and the application of successful leadership and management strategies, processes, and skills.

Central Washington University’s (CWU) College of Education and Professional Studies (CEPS) is recognized nationwide for successful training of graduate students in educational administration, psychology, and counseling. CWU graduate students successfully attain positions in education as administrators, school psychologists, and counselors. Housed in CEPS, the Department of Physical Education, School Health and Movement Studies (PESHMS) directs the Athletic Administration Master’s Program with its knowledgeable professors who have considerable experience in interscholastic and intercollegiate athletics as athletic directors, advisors, mentors, and coaches. Tenure track faculty, experienced in teaching, are aware of the need for the practical application of skills, and the knowledge and understanding necessary for successful leadership in athletics.

The opportunity for a degree in athletic administration comes at a time when the need for competent and knowledgeable athletic administrators is on the rise. In today’s fast-paced world of athletic administration, beginning Athletic Directors have little time to engage in “on-the-job” training. New Athletic Directors must be ready to set program direction, establish open communication and professional relationships, apply problem-solving strategies, and address budgetary and other program issues, all while managing an efficient and people-friendly program. Our master’s program prepares new and practicing athletic directors to be capable leaders and efficient managers who work efficiently and effectively.

Athletic Administration Master’s Program Cohort:

As a member of a CWU Athletic Administration cohort, you will work with your fellow graduate students on projects and coursework over a two-year period. Your understanding and application of the strategies and processes of athletic administration will grow with each quarter of participation. Each cohort member relies on the timely and effective support of classmates and faculty. Furthermore, the professional relationships you build as a member of the cohort greatly affect the efficiency and efficacy with which you and your classmates participate and complete coursework. In addition, each member of the cohort establishes a network of professional relationships they rely on as they move forward as practicing coaches and athletic administrators. In short, you and your fellow graduate students will come to rely on one another through two years of coursework, including the coursework you will complete during each summer session. Research in higher education has shown that professional groups, i.e. cohorts, projects, and workshops, engage students, and provide highly interactive and effectual learning environments.

Summer Sessions. Each CWU Master of Science in Athletic Administration cohort will participate in two on-campus, two-week summer sessions. The first session (during the cohort’s first summer) will be the initial experience of the AA cohort. As such, it will give each cohort member the opportunity to meet and work with other cohort members and get up to speed using technology applicable to the master’s program and the practicing athletic director. The second summer session (during the cohort’s second summer) will provide each cohort member with the opportunity to solidify professional relationships, prepare for the cooperative experience, and begin the culminating project. Students may not skip a summer session and then make it up after their project/thesis/examination.

If students cannot make plans for attending both two-week sessions (in order), they may be dropped from the program. (The $50 application is non-refundable). This includes those students selected as Graduate Assistants who may have to work summer camps. We suggest that before prospective students apply, they make certain they are willing and able to attend the summer sessions on campus. The sessions are always around the last week and a half of June and end right before the 4th of July.

Additional Program Information

Cooperating Experience. Each student will complete a one-quarter “cooperating experience” with a practicing professional in athletic administration. The “experience” can take place at a variety of athletic-related programs, i.e. high school and intercollegiate athletic administration, state or national athletic-governing associations or professional associations, private or public recreational facilities or departments, or professional sports organizations. Each “experience” will include a substantive professional project that addresses a current need or problem within the participating organization.

Professional Certification. National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association (NIAAA) administrative certification as a Registered Athletic Administrator (RAA) is available to master’s degree candidates upon completion of the CWU Master of Science in Athletic Administration. Additional certifications can be pursued through exams.

Social Security Disability | Social Security Disability Benefits | SSD | SSDI | SSI

When your poor health prevents you from working, Social Security disability benefits can prove a crucial financial lifeline to help you support your family. The Social Security Administration provides cash support to millions of Americans who suffer from physical and mental conditions that prevent them from working.

While this help is available, the process of applying for Social Security Disability Benefits can be quite complicated. We recommend hiring an experienced Social Security lawyer or Social Security attorney to help you with your application. This website can connect you with a Social Security attorney in your area who can help you win your claim for disability benefits. Finding a lawyer to represent your Social Security claim is the first step you can take towards being approved for monthly Social Security disability benefits.

In 1935, the Social Security Act passed Congress, but it was not until 1956 that the Social Security disability program was created. The Social Security program is intended to provide at least a subsistence level of income to the nation s most vulnerable citizens. The Social Security program has been praised by both Republican and Democratic presidents, who have called it a crucial safety net for America s workers.

Social Security reflects some of our deepest values the duties we owe to our parents, the duties we owe to each other when we re differently situated in life, the duties we owe to our children and our grandchildren. Indeed, it reflects our determination to move forward across generations and across the income divides in our country, as one America. William J. Clinton.

Some 8 million Americans who suffer from mental or physical disabilities receive Social Security disability benefits each month, along with some 34 million retired workers who receive Social Security retirement checks.The Social Security program is funded by payroll taxes. Over 20 percent of the federal budget is devoted to the Social Security program.

We can connect you with experienced Social Security attorneys lawyers who can help you navigate the often confusing bureaucracy that is the Social Security Administration. These Social Security lawyers are licensed around the country and will fight to get you the Social Security benefits that you are entitled to.

Don t just hire ANY Social Security lawyer

Applying for Social Security disability? We can put you in touch with a qualified Social Security attorney in your area. We have developed a network of Social Security lawyers and Social Security law firms that have decades of experience handling both kinds of disability claims, from Supplemental Security Insurance (SSI) to Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI).

Many initial claims for Social Security Benefits are denied. In fact, statistics show that up to sixty percent of applications are initially denied. However, a Social Security lawyer well versed in handling SSDI and SSI appeals can help you win your case at all levels of the appeals process .

Navigating the bureaucracy of the Social Security Administration can be a nightmare for an ordinary person. A Social Security benefit lawyer, who is well versed in the policies and procedures of the Social Security Administration, will know how to present your case to the agency in a timely and well organized fashion. A Social Security claims attorney can make sure you file the necessary applications at the correct times. This is essential in making sure that your Social Security application and SSD claims are handled in a timely manner.

We can connect you with skilled SSD benefits lawyers who can help ensure your Social Security Administration (SSA) application for disability benefits is approved swiftly and with ease. Social Security disability payments can be key to helping you, and your family, stay financially solvent after you become disabled and are unable to work. This website addresses the following issues, among others:

Applying for Social Security Disability

Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits can help people who cannot work due to a medical condition that is expected to last at least a year. SSD benefits are paid each month on either a long-term or permanent basis, depending on whether a person s disability is expected to last permanently. For more, visit this page on applying for SSDI and SSI benefits.

Social Security Disability Insurance is only paid in a cases of total disability. The Social Security Administration only handles cases of total disability and never provides benefits in instances of partial disability or short-term disability. The Social Security system is funded by payroll taxes and as a worker you have spent years having money deducted from your paycheck and deposited into this public trust fund. To be eligible, a disabled worker must have worked for a certain length of time in a position where he or she paid Social Security taxes.

The Social Security disability lawyers that handle your case are accustomed to serving clients who are in difficult financial straights because of their disability. Therefore, these attorneys understand the time-sensitive nature of the Social Security application and will do everything in their power to expedite the process to ensure you can start receiving Social Security payments as soon as possible.

When helping you apply for Social Security benefits, your disability lawyer will have to ask you the following questions.

  1. What medical condition do you suffer from?
  2. When did your medical condition set in?
  3. What have your medical tests shown about your condition?
  4. What treatment have you received?
  5. How does your medical condition restrict your ability to work?

Your SSD lawyer needs this information when filing a claim with the Social Security Administration and representing you in your Social Security Disability or Supplemental Security Income claim. Your lawyer may also want to speak to your doctor or mental health professional to receive his or her assessment of how your illness impacts your ability to engage in work-related activities.

Social Security Laws

For more information on the federal laws governing Social Security, DotCO has provided Title 42 Chapter 7 of the United States Code. to help you understand how the Social Security system functions. A lawyer is best equipped to help you understand these laws and how you can use them to your benefit and avoid having your application for disability benefits denied.

Aging in Place Home Modifications

“Aging in place” is a catchphrase that describes baby boomers who are choosing to modify their existing home as they age, rather than move to assisted living environments. If you or someone you love is experiencing a decline in safety, or is frustrated by a lack of independence, the Palisades’ team can help. Our occupational therapy practitioners will come to your home, evaluate your environment and recommend adaptations to prevent injury or frustration.

Through this service, we focus on reducing falls, promoting a healthy lifestyle and teaching clients to safely carry out their activities of daily living. Palisades’ practitioners are a valuable asset to professional teams, and are experienced in working with clients and their caregivers, as well as architects and construction companies who help to carry out modifications. Call today to schedule your “Aging in Place” evaluation, or speak with a Palisades’ occupational therapy practitioner.

Driver Safety

For most of us, driving is a way to stay connected to our world: to visit friends, go shopping and remain mobile. Unfortunately, aging can challenge our senses, along with physical and mental capabilities and ultimately may impact our ability to safely transport ourselves and others.

At Palisades Rehab, our occupational therapy practitioners have the expertise to assess vision, cognition, motor skills and perception. Through this evaluation, therapists can help older drivers compensate for life changes that impact their driving. And, when it’s time to give up driving, our OT team helps patients (1) adjust to the idea, (2) consider other forms of transportation, and (3) remain as independent and safe as possible.

Monthly Maintenance Program

Upon discharge from therapy services, we offer a monthly maintenance program to help you continue your path to good health. Talk to your therapist for more information!

Click to learn about Direct Access (DA)

At Palisades Rehab, we understand that things happen unexpectedly and that you may need to see a therapist before you’ve had the opportunity to see your physician. To assist with this, our facility participates in the Direct Access (DA) program. According to NJ Direct Access Law, you can see a physical therapist for up to 30 days before requiring a prescription for further treatment. NJ Direct Access allows you to begin your treatment program sooner so you can get back on your feet faster.

*While most health insurances cover physical therapy obtained by using Direct Access, plans differ. Please check with your insurance provider. Note: Medicare does not permit Direct Access.

Northern flying squirrel (Glaucomys sabrinus)

The northern flying squirrel (Glaucomys sabrinus ) is a long-whiskered, nocturnal mammal of forested areas in North America. Despite its somewhat misleading common name, the northern flying squirrel does not fly, and instead glides by extending a fold of skin that stretches from the wrists to the ankles, using the flattened tail as a rudder. The fur of this species is brown on the upperparts, fading to a buffy-white on the belly (2) .

Also known as Carolina flying squirrel.

Northern flying squirrel biology

The northern flying squirrel is considered to be among the most aerodynamically sophisticated of all gliding mammals (3). able to travel anywhere between 3 and 45 metres in a single glide (4). It uses this skill to travel between trees to feed on a variety of fungi and lichens in particular, although insects, nuts, buds, seeds and fruits are also eaten. The northern flying squirrel also spends a considerable amount of time feeding on the ground (1).

The northern flying squirrel maintains one of several dens throughout the year. In winter, this is often a cavity in a conifer tree, and, as this species does not hibernate. several individuals may share a nest to keep warm (5). During breeding, which occurs between February and July (1). the female northern flying squirrel typically selects a den in lower parts of a tree. This species may shift between different den sites, even when rearing young (5).

One or two litters of 2 to 6 young are born each season, after a gestation period of 37 to 42 days. The young are weaned at around 2 months and reach sexual maturity at 6 to 12 months (1) .

Northern flying squirrel range

Widespread across much of North America, the northern flying squirrel is found from Alaska, east through Canada to the eastern provinces, and south into parts of the United States interior. In the western U.S. the northern flying squirrel occurs as far south as southern California (1) .

Species with a similar range

(Lithobates catesbeianus)

The northern flying squirrel is classified as Least Concern (LC) on the IUCN Red List (1) .

Northern flying squirrel threats

The northern flying squirrel is common in much of its very large range and, consequently, is not at immediate risk of extinction (1). There are no known major threats to this species at present, although declines of populations in the southern Appalachian Mountains led to it being listed as an Endangered Species by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in 1985 (6). The main cause of this decline was habitat loss associated with forest clearing and recreational activities, although pollution and the introduction of exotic species have also negatively affected this species in the Appalachians (2) .

Northern flying squirrel conservation

As the northern flying squirrel is most common in healthy forests that have not been heavily impacted by human activities such as logging or land clearing, the conservation and management of its habitat is crucial to its survival (7) .

Gestation The state of being pregnant; the period from conception to birth. Hibernate Hibernation is a winter survival strategy in which an animal’s metabolic rate slows down and a state of deep sleep is attained. While hibernating, animals survive on stored reserves of fat that they have accumulated in summer. Lichen A composite organism made up of a fungus in a co-operative partnership with an alga. Owing to this partnership, lichens can thrive in harsh environments such as mountaintops and polar regions. Characteristically forms a crustlike or branching growth on rocks or tree trunks. Nocturnal Active at night.

What is retail logistics?Is it similar to physical distribution?

Logistics is the function of making goods and other resources physically available for use as and when required. This generally includes two basic activities of moving or transporting these resources, and storing them at different location till required for use or further transportation. Logistics as applied to business is broadly divided in three section – incoming logistics, in-plant logistic and out-bound logistics.

The out-bound logistic is concerned with transportation of goods from a manufacturer to locations away from it. Mostly this is for the purpose of supplying the products manufactured to the customer. This aspect of logistics is also called distribution logistics. However the outbound logistics may also include other activities such as transportation of material from a plant to subcontractors for outsourced manufacturing.

Retailing is one of the activities within the overall distribution function. Thus we can consider retail logistic as one part of the physical distribution systems. The terminology of logistics and the boundaries between difference logistics activities are not very clearly defined or fixed. However, we can say that retail logistics includes transpiration of goods to the points of retail sales and storage there. It also covers any additional activities for door delivery of goods to the customers.
