tal... Been a LONG time since i checked on this thread. Amazing work thus far. I've now landed a IT Tech slot at my job, so i know how busy you've been. Im a low level grunt at the moment, but my boss does a great job of getting our hands into ALOT of things and i know how much fun you must be having .

We're moving our whole business (6000 users, 600 in my building) over to VOIP in about 3 months, so let me know how the conversion goes for you. Also, have you checked on how much bandwith the users are using without the VOIP up yet? I know that a T1 can only handle 32 (that may be a bit off, but i know its close) calls at once, so depending on your current load you may want to get that 3rd T1 line. You could balance 2 T1's for VOIP services and then have a single unballanced for network traffic from the users.

As far as your pay goes, hang in there man. I've worked business admin as well as IT, and you're about to have the ball in your court. When you can show "the man" hard evidence on paper that you've saved him $800.00\\month, its MUCH easier to ask him to pay you money. Couple that in with the fact that you've boosted the production of his agents (giving him more revenue) and you shoudl be on easy street. I would say to be firm this time. With the work that you've put in, and the improvements that you've made anything less than $20.00 would be unacceptable (i make $14\\hr salary as entry lvl tech) and i live in a rural area. If they won't work with you, i'd say you may want to start looking elsewhere for a job. Getting the certs that you're working on, coupled with your very well documented progress with this build, and lvl of knowledge your displayed, i'd say you could easily land a job paying $50,000 or more. great work man.

Ok, so...

Things are up and running and looking good. I have 2 servers load balancing each other, and backing up each other. They both have their dedicated services, but if one fails, the other server picks up that service in a heartbeat. Nobody even knows if I reboot a server. awesome.

I am using the Polycom SP301 phones for agents, and SP550's for managers - these are nice pieces - very clear.

Since some people have mentioned bandwidth, I'll elaborate a little bit on what I did

1 x Voip t1
2 x Comcast 16meg down, 4mb up cable internet load balanced. very fast.

This allows me 24 simultanious VOIP calls via the t1, and if the t1 goes down, one of the comcast lines redirects and takes over those needs. Nice, eh?

The thin clients are working well, with one exception. I bought them with 128mb flash memory, and 128mb ram. They only show 64mb ram, because 64mb is shared with video! GRRRR. I'm currently fighting with the vendor for that issue. what a PITA.

I don't really want to write about all the configuration of the 20 servers on each server, unless someone has specific questions, then I'll elaborate, but other than that I don't see much benefit in writing about it for a few hours and boring you guys

Also, I have been programming the call accounting stuff, so we can see all the stats with web based graphs and all. I'll submit screenshots later when it's prettier

Hmm.. what else, what else... questions?

Wow that's some fast internetz...
When you set up the thin clients did you have to put an entry for each of them in your dhcpd.conf on the server?
