Troubleshooting

(these settings should not be effected by an upgrade but verify them if problems occur)

Configure / Verify Spycer settings:

  1. Spycer > Options > Config...
  2. General > Select the IP to be used for the SpycerNet then hit the "Apply Network Settings" button
  3. Permissions > choose "Select all" button
  4. Watch Folders > choose a folder to share through Spycer.

 

Configure / Verify Venice settings:

  1. Use eth0 for meta LAN *IF* Venice will be connected to an external SAN or external StorNext storage.  If not, delete /usr/cvfs/config/fsnameserver file, then eth0 can be re-purposed.
  2. eth1 is set to DHCP, connect this to the house network (can change to static if required).
  3. Use ifconfig to identify the IP address for eth1.
  4. Set Spycer and Venice to the same IP: cd /etc/opt/DVS/Venice, edit the Service.conf file, change IP= to the IP address used by Spycer.
  5. Restart the Venice services: service venice restart
  6. Start Venice application.  
  7. Both Spycer and Venice must be installed and configured to use the same IP address for remote Venice sessions.
