I thought I would make a quick post about how I reset the toner counters on my brother HL-3170CDW. I find myself having to search for these steps every few months.
I love my brother HL-3170CDW printer (CLICK HERE). It performs great and always works for us. The one thing I do not like is buying toner cartridges…and I have yet to do so! I have owned this printer since August 13, 2013 and have yet to replace the toner even though I use it regularly. My current page count is a total 1,432 pages with 1,009 being color and 423 being monochrome and I am still using the starter cartridges that came with the printer. The brother spec sheet (CLICK HERE) states that the starter cartridges are good for 1,000 pages each, but I have been given the “Toner Low” error almost 3 times now.
I have a client with a data center, a headquarters/DR site, and a lot of branches spread out all over the world with Internet connectivity.
They are currently using static IPSEC Internet facing VPNs to connect to their data center and HQ environemts, but the company is hitting a growth spurt and they are quickly realizing this solution is becoming difficult to scale and manage with their limited in-house IT staff.
The client wanted to stick with Internet based VPNs for connectivity. They also wanted a solution that would allow them to easily stand up a new remote site quickly with a template configuration and provide tunnel redundancy between the data center and HQ locations. They also wanted direct site-to-site communications when necessary.
I thought I would make a quick post around how I prepare audio files for deployment in Unity Connection, Communications Manager, Contact Center Express, and other Cisco UC products. This post will be focused around Unity Connections but the same method can be used for all applications.
Due to inclement weather conditions in the southeast I had multiple clients that needed emergency messages uploaded to their Unity Connection auto attendants. I have some clients that have call handler managers and record and configure their own messages on the systems. But, I have quite a few that would much rather just record a message with whatever is handy (an iPhone more and more these days) and e-mail it to me for uploading and configuration.
Two new Nexus 7Ks have been installed at one of my client’s data centers. Management connectivity was brought up to the data center core and verified. I was given console access and told to configure TACACS+ authentication and authorization on the F2 VDC.
